The truth hurts
There are some people I know only through blogs, there are some that I know through friends, and some that are family. When sucky things happen to people that I "know" in this area of "friendship" I honestly feel bad. I mean really bad. I am not a link type person meaning I am a complete idiot when it comes to this, so when I refer to them I use the screen names with no link. Just Deal.
This message it to my "friends" Snarkalupagus, tbtine, the idiot. There is so much going on right now and my thoughts and prayers are with you. I offer what ever you need that I can provide, even though there is nothing I can do to make this easy. Penn I am sure is a bright spot in your life that will never be replaced. Animals are family no matter what. They have dispositions and attitudes, they are moody and fun all in the same breath. They know things. Things that make you say "How did he know that" or "I needed that". When faced with the tough decision to choose how to deal with an illness, it is hard. For that I am sorry! That is sucky.
Compound that with the fact that your dad is in the midst of a 3-5 day stay at the local hospital instead of your home for your holiday gathering, I am double sorry! You will be in our thoughts and prayers. That is the suckiest!
much love your way
