And finally, my stepson made the HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL TEAM! He has tried out twice and not made it and this year, he has made the JV team! We are THRILLED and so proud of him. This is a REALLY big deal as baseball is his life. He hopes to become a professional baseball player one day.
There is some not so good news..... My oldest and largest dog, Rover (we call him big boy) was unable to get up off my bathroom floor the other morning. I had slept in and when I awoke, I knew something wasn't right with him. Home alone, no way to get him down the stairs (95lbs) and to the vet, I stayed with him until I could reach my husband and he could make it home. He did not appear to be in any pain, just couldn't get up. So I took all his vitals (temp, respiratory rate, heart rate) and just sat on the bathroom floor petting him. We got him in the car (with difficulty) and to the vet. The vet seemed to suspect something right away and he was right. Rover has a large mass on his spleen. We are to just spoil him and give him love until the time comes or he let's us know it's time for us to intervene. The vet's own dog happens to have the same issue. We love our Big Boy and will do all we can to keep him comfortable but will not allow him to suffer. He is very valuable to our family. He is a fearless guard dog and an all around good family dog. Love all members equally. My handsome boy.....
