It's Been Over a Week.......

We're here, really we are!  I know it's time to update the blog when my Mom mentions how long it's been since there was an update!

The good news:
     *Still feeling kind of yucky which confirms that Cupid is still growing inside - LOVE IT!!!
     *Our first OB appt is this week - YAY!!
     *We are on vacation  - HALLELUJAH!!!

The bad news:
     *We've had a pretty rough week this week - we brought our black lab Willy to the vet because he was sick.  We assumed that he was relapsing from a platelet issue he had last fall and also last spring.  It is usually a very easy fix - some antibiotic and prednis0ne and he is all better.   Not the case this time......He didn't get any better from Mon  - Thurs including not eating, losing 3 pounds in 3 days and being very, very weak.  When we took him back on Thurs the vet decided to keep him and do an x-ray as well.  We found out that this is NOT the same issue as last year and in fact there is a very high probability that he has cancer in his liver and spleen.  It was just devastating news.......I don't expect him to be with us much more than another week or so.  He is only 7 1/2 - too soon to let him go... We go back to the vet one more time on Monday to check things out, but we don't expect the news to be any better.  In the meantime, we are loving on him lots, fixing him special meals of rice and enjoying the last of the time we have with him.

Losing a pet sucks - big time........

So, that's the news from here..

Oh ladies, that's so sad about your doggie. I'm so sorry :( I hope that his last days are full of love and comfort.
On the other hand, good news you're still feeling icky - good luck at the obgyn appointment:)

I am so sorry to hear about your furry baby. Losing a pet is heartbreaking. (())

On the other front, I am so happy to hear that you are feeling icky (for all the right reasons) and I cannot wait to hear about your OB appointment.
