Please send some good thoughts our way, I know Chris would appreciate them!!
We will say a prayer for you all. Be safe and be strong.... Micki and John

You got up even earlier and went to the gym? You are a god!


Lauren ... We will keep good thoughts for you during this tough time... Micki and John

Thank you everyone for your well wishes for our Minnie. She's a real trooper! She has a tumor on her heart the size of my fist, but she's still running around the house and generally being herself. At first the doctor only gave her a week, but that's been several weeks ago now. We're just going to let her carry on until she doesn't seem to have her usual spunk anymore. The only difference is she only has to look at the treat bag to get about ten of them! She's gained all her weight back that she had lost. Hey, why watch your weight now, kwim? 13 years we've all been together. It's still not enough.

On the up side, I made our dinner ADRs for the DL 1/2 in Sept. We're doing the World of Color dinner package because I was just getting too stressed out about where we wanted to be to watch it and when we were going to eat and all that planning stuff. Now I just have to settle how we're getting from the airport to DL and back again and what' we're going to do about breatfast at 3:30 a.m. We're really going to miss you guys!

It's been a little while, but here's the French Quarter!

Lauren, I love the train page! I really like the chicken wire that you have as an element. Very creative!

We just went through this last week as our 6 year old dog had to be put to sleep. He was suffering so much that it was really the only option. It was one of the hardest things I have ever gone through so I am sending lots of positive thoughts and energy your way to help you and Minnie though this.

Alissa: Thanks so much! That LO got pulled apart three times before it finally landed the way it is. Thank goodness I wasn't using tape!

Hey Bill! Thanks for thinking of us. I'm so sorry about your puppy! These things are so hard.

I DID complain about the food in the first survey. Bill completed the second survey about the dining. I'm not sure what he put.

Lauren - I'm sorry to read about your cat. It is hard to see a fur baby suffer.

As Bill mentioned, we had to put our DISdog (JJ) to sleep this past Friday. It was hard. But, he is not suffering any longer. We got a call from my Mom while on the ABD trip that JJ was not himself. So, I had her bring him to the vet until we got back. He checked out fine and they sent him home with me. However, a few weeks later he started having seizures. Reluctantly, we put him on phenobarbital (anti-seizure medicine). Even on the medicine, he had seizures. Within the past week he took a turn for the worst. He could barely walk and yelped in pain. He would look up at us with those sad eyes and I knew he was in pain. Selfishly, I kept him alive three weeks longer than I should have. It was hard to seem him deteriorate so quickly. It does give us comfort knowing he is no longer in pain.

Jennifer

We miss you buddy!

Jennifer & Bill, I am so sorry for your loss too. It is SO hard to watch a being (person or animal) suffer when they can't tell you what is wrong.

My heart goes out to you all that are having to deal with painful issues of any sort.
