Thank you Julie & Jo.

Michele - Gerbils are illegal in CA, because they would be able to thrive if set free. As pets, they are very similar to hamsters, but a little easier to care for.

Thank you Kristy I'll admit that I didn't think Chewy would make it through the weekend. He's very triumphantly managed to climb up to a high spot once a day for the last 3 days (he used to do it many times a day), as if he's trying to show that he's not giving up. We've known he's been showing his age more & more, but it's still hard. Her other 2 gerbils had sudden health issues, and I think that was harder because it was unexpected.

Thank you I hadn't even realized today's date. Not sure whether to be excited, or panic that I have so much to get done.

That totally makes sense. How is Chewy doing?

Thanks Gail

Michele - Chewy continues to decline. I'm making sure I offer him soft food many times a day, and he's very eager every time but he barely eats. He's noticeably lost weight. He was too weak today to stretch up to his regular water bottle, so DH rigged up a hook so we could lower it. He clammored up to his high spot though, but it definitely took him more effort to do so.

Angel is going to be so excited I've been checking every day to see if a spot opened up for the sea lion excursion. We had decided that if only one spot became available, I would do it with Angel. There were 2 spots available today, so we'll be able to do it as a family like Angel had wanted. For me & DH -this is definitely out of our comfort zone, but I think we'll survive.

Thank you Michele & Lisa

I was going to tell Angel when she got home from school, then decided to wait until DH got home. Didn't even think about her getting on the DIS, and reading this thread.

Hope it's not too late to join in? Thanks for sending the pm. I'm up to page 11 of your PTR. You and your family have been through so much. I'm happy to see that you are going on a cruise and extending your cruise. What wonderful things to look forward to.
