MY LITTLE MADDY....

It saddens me to find out that my little girl dog Maddie was diagnosed a couple of weeks ago with a heart condition, she is now on heart pills and was doing pretty good until she had a couple of seizures 2 days ago and yesterday. It seems that maybe she has low blood sugar so she will be going back to the vet on Monday for blood work. I am so worried about her and I know shes 3 months shy of being 12 but she and her brother have been very special to me and helped me through some hard times in my life.  I couldn't take them to the Arctic so they are living in Shelburne and are well taken care of by my ex...and when I go home they go with me for the vacation time that I have. I am really hoping that she gets at least a few more years , she enjoys life so much just sitting and watching the squirrels, going in the car and she loves her walks. I will be home on the 27th and she will be the first non human I will go see !!

I AM SO BLOODY SLACK ...OR REALLY BUSY !!

I'll take the latter because these 1 and 2 year old boys keep me hopping !!
So the trip home with my grandson was just perfect, he hadn't been home and I hadn't seen him for 4 years so the very next night I took him to see an old friend of his dads and even though the plan was to be back by 10 or 11 pm, my sons good friend Mo was still telling stories to his son at 2 am. It was priceless and that trip was best thing I could have done for him and me .Memories ...its all we have....
Pat was glad he had come home ...he didn't realize that he had actually missed it, familiar things , family...since that trip in August he went home again in October...I think he will do so more often ....
We decided to find all the videos of Shawn that we could and get them on to a DVD before they were lost.... so between his grandfather and I we got several copies of each and passed them around to the family...memories....It's all we have....
