Annie is better since the last post--stronger, more alert times, and no nausea. She is still too sleepy during the day, and not consistently sleeping through the night again. But life isn't perfect.

Anyway, I heard your requests for more pictures, so I got the digital camera out and started to snap a picture of Annie and our new puppy, but the batteries were dead. They're charging right now. NEW PUPPY?? Did you hear that right? Yes, and here's the story: I had been praying about getting a dog. You know, something for Annie, something for the kids, something to complicate my life--the usual. Then when I was in the hospital with Annie, my friend, Terri, who posts here often, and who also breeds Boston Terriers, e-mails me and asks me if we would be interested in one of her new puppies. So we got this little thing last night--her name is Millie--and I have to say, she is THE sweetest, most gentle, affectionate dog EVER. And when I get these batteries charged, you will see for yourself.

Hope today is a great one!

Welcome Millie! I can't think of anything that will stimulate Annie to speak more than a sweet puppy. And...for the rest of you...enjoy that little face. I'm so happy for you all.

Nature's Miracle: Buy tons. You will use it. :) I say this because my "puppy" is nearly 2, and they aren't perfect; my "old" guy is 11, and he's practically perfect, but a tiny bit incontinent. :) :)

Thanks for the tip, Gretchen. I'm on my way to the store now.:) Marilyn--what's your dog's name?

My neighbor and friend, Robin, has a Boston named Maddie (Madison). Since she's in a house full of boys, she has a pink leather collar--with spikes. :)

Have fun. A puppy brings so many smiles, and this family deserves a smile or 2. xxxooogretchen
