Should I Stay or Should I Go?

(originally published on LiveJournal) Update on Sassy: Max took her to the vet this morning. She has “improved vastly” and while her liver panel numbers are “still high” they are “much better”. She said, it shows “her liver is healing”. She does need to stay on the Reglan, and we should use less air when … Continue reading

Sassy Sunday Update

(originally published on LiveJournal) Sassy came home on Friday night. She immediately threw up. (If vomit makes you squeamish, stop reading now.)

The First Six Weeks of Motherhood

While I’ve been working on the adoption saga, I’ve also been typing up little bits and pieces of daily life. I’m going to share what I have here, and hopefully post on a more regular basis. This is my scheme to never have to write email again. (Jack doesn’t let me go online too much.) … Continue reading
