Friday Finally

And it's not been a good week. I've been sick with a terrible cold all week. There was a fire at my work while I was gone so thanks to that I've been able to work from home while I've been miserable instead of spreading it around!
I finally got all my Disney photos uploaded to shutterfly. It took 2 full days! Granted there are a lot of them but man why is uploading so dang slow?
And the worst part of all is that we've made the dreaded appointment for our beloved dog Bear. She's going in at 9:30 tomorrow to be put down. She's had a wonderful life, she'll be 16 in December, she's been the best dog I've ever know but she's declining so quickly. She's been throwing up for 2 days and hasn't eaten in 3. Not a good sign. So so sad.
So if you don't see me for a bit you'll know why. Hope you all have a better weekend than I do.

I am so sorry about Bear. I know how hard it is to lose a good companion and it is always a hard decision. Hope you get to feeling better too.

Oh Pam :( poor Bear. I'll be thinking about you guys this weekend.

I'm sorry Pam. You know Shawn's a vet and that is the worst part of his job. He's done it for 20 years and it's never gotten any easier for him to have to watch a family go through that. I'll be thinking of you.

Rach said...

I'm soooo sorry about Bear. She is the sweetest dog. My kids loved her and I know you guys love her to bits. I'll be thinking about you all. :-( Such a tough thing to deal with after your wonderful vacation. Such a tough thing to deal with any time... *hugs*

Pam I'm sorry you've been sick. I went through that and I'm still dealing with it a bit.

And most of all so sorry about Bear. What a wonderful life to have lived as a part of your family for 16 years! That's a long time. I'm sorry for your tough decision.

Chris said...

Oh, no! I'm so sorry this time has come. I know you knew it was happening, but that does not make it any easier. She was a wonderful dog and you were lucky to have her as part of your family. There will be a big hole in your heart now for a very long time. But lots of love and wonderful memories too. Big {{{{Hugs}}}}} to you, my friend, and to Josh, Jake and Michael.

I'm glad you're home and had a wonderful vacation. I hate uploading pictures.
I'm so sorry you're sick. I hope you're on the mend now. Must have been the drastic temperature change.
I know from experiece how hard it is to put down a dog that is older than some of your children. They are a part of your family. When we put down Cinnamon last year she was doing the same thing as Bear. It turned out she had a tumor in her stomach the size of a softball. My thoughs and prayers are with you and your family as you say goodbye to your sweet Bear. (((HUGS)))

Pam, I am so sorry to about Bear. How sad. I know you all must be terribly upset. A dog is family.

I am also sorry you are sick. I am on my 3rd week and it has not been pleasant. Hope you get to feeling better soon.

Again, I am so sorry.

Hugs,
Kristi
