New pup tries so hard to play with her but she wants nothing to do with him. I feel a little bad for him. Hopefully things will calm down over the next few weeks as he gets older & she gets used to having another dog around.
What kind of puppy and what is his name?

I'm happy to report that she is walking.. well barely.
She drags her hid end like she is cross country skiing
but is getting stronger ever day.
We usually foster these kitties but this little Muppet has
already found her forever home right here.
Muppet is her name? She is a beauty!

Our rescue kitten, Inky, is about full grown now I think. We're guessing her birthday is the very beginning of October. She is beautiful and fluffy black, very affectionate. She still plays a lot with Cinderella, our schipperke. I hope they never grow out of playing with each other.

Have a good day groupies! Magical journeys wished for all those going to the World soon!
I should have read further before asking about the new puppy. Another cutie!

We are sailing in December and have my sister and niece with us this time. I guess this would have been the time to consider getting a cabana but they are doing other activities, the stingray feeding and the jet skis, so they won't be around on the beach with us that much. It sounds like you would rent a cabana again? Do they have bathrooms in them? That would be a big plus for me, not having to hike down the beach to get to the main bathrooms.

I agree. More points to be able to take family with you is a great idea. And don't worry about being too old. Those grandkids will keep you young! I'm guessing eventually there will be more than just the one grand daughter, right?

Also, DVC is great for retirement. First I have to GO back to work, and then eventually Dynaguy and I will use the points we have towards staying longer during the winter. The more points we have, the more chance we have of getting out of the cold. So..... buy away, WD! Guilt free.

Been to them all but VWL.. until now!

Hi !
I am a happy DVC owner (AKL) for many years and have stayed at all the DVC properties in Florida except VWL and I will be there in 5 days! I have a one bedroom with another Disneyholic and can't wait! Is there a view or room number that anyone can recommend as I get to my final hours? Anything I MUST DO at the lodge( except dine, I have that covered)... I always love to hear from the experts so tell me all about it!
Judy

I recommend a lake view close to the elevator. There isn't much in the way of views at VWL, mostly pine trees.

You can also request an atrium 1 bedroom villa.

There's no way if he is so far gone that his body is starting to shut down that the medical people didn't know just how sick he was. I just don't believe it. I've promised to come back to haunt Dynaguy if I am ever so sick and they torture me with chemo instead of making me comfortable and letting me go.

Mom said Judy's comment was that how could she be sad that Steve was gone when she knows he is in heaven? I think she is in shock since Steve was only gone about an hour at that point. She has a long way to go in her grieving but I am glad she is comforted now that her husband isn't suffering and he has gone Home. Mom offered to be there for her whenever she needed to talk, one widow to another. Everyone can offer to be there to help but I think it really does take someone who has been in the same shoes to understand what she is going through. I can't even begin to imagine losing my spouse. A big part of me would die with him.

Anyway, I have no idea what has been happening in the world of our lodge since I was last here a few weeks ago to ask for your prayers. Judy and the family will still need those prayers to get them through the coming days and months. As for me, I'm imagining Steve is in heaven with my dad and my grandpa and they are back to smoking their pipes together and telling tall fishing tales from years gone by. Steve's dad died when Steve was just a teenager so I imagine there is quite a reunion with his parents, too.

Thank you all for your prayers and positive thoughts. I really wish Steve had been healthy enough to send on a last trip to Disney but I think I knew from the beginning that he was pretty far down the path with his cancer. It was a wishful thought on my part for someway to be able to help, but never grounded in reality.
Oh Ink, sorry to hear about your cousin Steve,

So I'll play a bit of devils advocate for the doctors, Cancer is not some thing that is ever grounded in reality. My life seems so totally foreign to me now. It is so absolutely all consuming, almost to the point of being unbelievable. The old guy caught an infection last week, which is devastating to some one with leukemia and no immune system, so we spend a week trying to beat that back with antibiotics and transfusion, so he can start chemo again because he can't get a transplant with active leukemia. There is simply no "reality" there. I sit there pleading with the doctors to do any thing and every thing because I just dropped off my 18 year old at the University of Cincinnati and there is no way I can destroy his entire world by showing up at his dorm telling him he has to come home.

As much as I'd like to think I'm making good decisions, the reality is the entire time, with every fiber of my soul, every thing I am is screaming "do whatever you have to do, whatever measures you need to take" I simply cannot even remotely imagine an existence without the old guy.


WD In the interest of full disclosure, let me say that my opinion is strickly based on pure emotion and a bunch of cliche's.

Add on!!

In other news, I think I need more points. Let me explain. My granddaughter is now 5 and will be 6 in March. How time flies. Anyway, I think that I should upgrade to a 1 bedroom for those times when I was getting a studio. So that means that I'll need to bump up our AKV and GCV points a bit. DW and I will be viewing the Samantha Brown thingy on Sept 15. I'm trying to get her interested in more points, you see. Also, my daughter (the mother of my granddaughter) reacted positively when I told her that they were building a DVC at the Grand Floridian. Hmm, might I add on there? I'll bet that the price for points will be high and it will require a lot of them to stay there. Then I wonder if I should dunk my head in ice cold water, as I am in my early 60's and here I am thinking about adding on. Don't get me wrong, I'm responsible and our debt is relatively low. I have a good job and don't plan on retiring for a while. But am I too dang old to add on?
Buy More Points, Buy More Points, Buy More Points!!!! This is a sub-liminal message

I'm so sorry that these past days have not been good for you and your family. I can only imagine how difficult it is.

I would be the exact same way, E, as you are. There are some situations when docs need to do everything and anything to help the patient. And I would be that way in your situation.

How is the transplant situation looking, any prospective donors?

Prayers for you all. Especially the old guy.

Happy Sunday Muush, thanks for the love. Still looking for a full match, they're giving it until November. They can do what they call a partial match with the boys so that's an option. Ironically the old guy is probably more sane than me. I'm not a stable mabel the best of times.

And as another fine example of "the Lord always shows us a silver lining". He has an infectious disease doctor helping to make sure this infection doesn't get worse and she is about as big a disney fan as we are.
She and her dh have been toying with the idea of dvc but they are diehard poly fans. Which of course is like waving a red flag in front of a bull to me, I'm gathering all my WL pictures.

Sounds good E. My friend whose baby girl needed a BM transplant (due to the inability to make platelets) received a partial transplant from her dad. It was a success and she didn't need any more transplants. Well, it was our understanding it was partial because it was a match, but only 5 out of 6 allogens (if I remember correctly).

Awesome about the doc and WDW! I'm sure it helps to make the situation more palatable and the doc more human!
