Hey gang.I'm sorry that I haven't been around. Ya know...sometimes life just kicks ya in the rear repeatedly and ya just plain get overwhelmed by it all.
First off,as some of you know,today our sweet love Morgan would have celebrated her 20th birthday. Sadly,she crossed the bridge on 5/28/13. Today was pretty tough. Today is also my Uncle Tony's birthday. Mom and Grandma and the rest of the family just got back from Tony's surprise party. Happy birthday Tony! You're awesome and we love you.
Since I last wrote in the diary thingy so many things have happened.We remembered some loved ones lost around this time of year,we remembered birthdays of others that have passed,we mourned the loss of the recent passing of our cousin Soloman the Great Pyrenees who crossed the bridge and reunited with his beloved sister Sophie...
Mom was supposed to go see the Drs. at the Mayo Clinic,but after reviewing her records they cancelled her appointments and told her that they have no treatments available for her. Imagine...THE Mayo Clinic has nothing that they can do to help my Mom. Yes,she's THAT sick.
As if all of that stuff wasn't enough,our doggie Dutch injured his back playing with his pals at the dog park. Mom got him in to see Dr, Kevin right away and he is being treated for two bulging/partially ruptured discs in his lower back. He's improving,but he's got a ways to go before he's healed. Cross your fingers that he will be ok. He's only 4 yrs old. And...yesterday Mom discovered two lumps on my back and she cried. I couldn't get in to see the Dr. today and Dr. Kevin will be out of the office all week next week. (that poor guy is so overworked and has a serious need for some time off.) I'm feeling ok,but Mom is concerned and I am too. Lumps are scary.
Toby J. is fading more and more as well. He's nearly 20 yrs old. He doesn't appear to be in any pain or distress..his body is just wearing out. His time is growing so short.
So,here we are: Everything is beating us all up here. We are doing the best we can,but it's sad and stressful around here. I'll be around when I can be,but family comes first and we all really need each other these days.
