I am Walter and this is my World.

Thursday, July 30, 2009


I slept! Lovely, sweet sleep. Now we go to physical therapy today, and we're hoping it doesn't cost as much as multiple orthopedic surgeries. I have been reluctant to put up a "donate" button or anything, but if anyone wants to help out and is able, buying my books will help deflate our medical bills.

As you can imagine, Sir Walter with-shirt-and-socks is going to need a-lot-o cash to get his legs working properly. Water treadmills, nerve reconstruction, physical therapy at the hospital, means we are facing a very long comittment, and if you can help by buying a book or two,(or 20!!) we KISSES your face!

You can see the books on the sidebar here or see/buy them here. There are two titles available, "Pretty Little Mistakes," and "Jennifer Johnson is Sick of Being Single."They're only about ten bucks and we really really appreciate it.

I bought both of your books pre-Walter vs. the SUV/Truck incident and LOVED the both! However, I will continue to push them on my friends and loved ones :-)

Manda Girl said...

I'll get mine today!

Your books sound great! I would like to buy them. I will check out the link and post them on Clover's blog too.
Hugs and kisses to Walter!

Good luck with physical therapy today good buddy. I know you are going to need a lot of help to get all your parts working again, but I know you can do it.

Heather, I think putting a donate button on the blog would be a great idea. I told Mom that I would like to donate some of my treat money and she is okay with that. Please let me know where I can donate/send it.

Sleep is a wonderful thing. We are glad you have finally gotten some. A donate button would NOT be tacky, and if people are able they will donate or buy your book. Or send lots of loving thoughts to Walter.
We will go check out your books.

We will be getting a book soon! But we also think a donate button is a good idea....we would donate!!! Good luck with PT today. We hope its not too much work and treats are involved!

The Great Rock Eater said...

Honey, after everything you have been through if you want to put up a Donate button, you go right ahead!! Anyone that declares it tacky, doesn't have to donate and should keep their opinion to themselves until a less stressful and emotional time!!! I will definitely check out the link to your books.

I finished Jennifer Johnson within a few days of reading. Great book, well written, fun to read! I'll run out to get PLM this weekend--anything for Walter!

Pearl said...

Just my 2 cents, Heather... Not that I don't want to read your books, because I do, but I wish you'd give us all a chance to help you financially in a way that will come 100% directly to your pocket for these vet bills.
No one is comfortable doing something like that, I know. But we all care about you and Walter and really want to help. Stop being afraid of how it will look... Look around these comments and see! Let us help.

Rosie said...

I will absolutley buy your book - I would have bought it anyway if I knew you were an author - I am a new reader to your blog - and look forward to reading them!! It is a plus that it will help Walter too. That little guy is so precious :)

Heather, I have to agree with Pearl. I would prefer to donate where 100% would go directly to you and Walter.

Hello Walter my name is Daisy. I (and my mom) have been reading about your accident and recovery and want you to know we ar cheering you on. We left several comments but wanted you to know that you are in our pawyers. I had a knee surgery about a week ago and am healing nicely. But I also can't do a whole lot for a while! take care Walter we will be visiting frequently.

Tweedles -- that's me... said...

Hi its me Tweedles
We are so happy Walter is progressing.

We think a DONTATE button is a wonderful idea. It is not tacky.
If you could send me your home address - I would appreciate it.
I have a piggy bank that I would like to send to you.,, to help

Nothing wrong with a "donate" button! Like everyone else says...if people don't want to donate, they don't have to! Your vet bills must be CRAZY BIG!

We just ordered both books and some nerdy airplane book for our Dad so we could qualify for Super Saver Shipping. SAWEET :)

Rachel said...

I'm going to buy the books right now! (Why didn't I think of that??)
Thanks for keeping us updated - I know it's probably a lot of work for you right now, but it puts my mind at ease each day to read about his progress.
Keep the faith - Walter is a miracle.
