Hi all. It’s been some time since I’ve posted anything so thought I’d bring you up to date. It’s been a crazy and hectic summer with so much going on. To start we had 5 weddings from July-September. We also had our front porch closed in during the month of June and sadly my 12 year old pup Roxie became very ill in June and test revealed that her kidney’s were not functioning right. Her doctor felt that because she has a strong heart and clear lungs she was a good candidate for dialysis at home. June and July were tough months but I am happy to say that she is responding well to the treatments which she gets every day. She is doing well with bad days few and far between. Unfortunately her time with us is only as long as she responds to her treatments. Could be days, months, or years. Regarding Kai, he is still thriving and as loving as ever. He loves eating a large variety of foods so I am making and freezing. I am excited to let you know that he now has a vocabulary of 22 words and 9 phrases so a BIG THANK YOU to all your replies on how to teach him to talk. I just love chatting with with him and he loves talking. He is an excellent traveler and has made many trips back and forth to Pennsylvania over the summer. He seems to have adjusted well to the changes in the two houses. I brought Kai home in late November at the age of 8 weeks and feel he has done beautifully in the 9 and a half months he’s been part of our family. I have all of you to thank. Everyone who has replied to my concerns with suggestions on what to do or what not to do has added to the well being of my little guy and I gratefully THANK YOU ALL. I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful summer.
