  4. Congratulations .....you have elected a good man. I'm sure you must be so, so relieved. Like many others over here in the U.K. I was up all night glued to the television, occasionally talking to a friend in Virginia. I watched Obama's acceptance speech with tears streaming down my face. I know the road ahead will not be easy, but, yes, he has brought hope, where hope was very scarce.

    Your comments meant so much.
    Oh yes, big vet mistakes...
    one vet this morning apologized all over herself and said such a big mistake they all made!They did.

    You are so right.. his job since repatriating has been nothing but stress. At 59 and willing to go round the world for them, it is not being appreciated. But it's the corporate world, and look what is happening everywhere in layoffs!
    Good news though is he is vested, having been there 25 years, and thus there is some early retirement.
    It means in the short haul we will need to pay our health insurance, and then he and maybe me will need to find jobs.
    Not what we anticipated at this stage/age!
    But there could be pluses..
    so we are waiting.
    They haven't called all day from vet, so maybe Bailey comes home with us tonight.
    He is so little.. he went from 17 lbs to 15 lbs in 3 days, that is a big percentage of body weight for a little dog.
    Thanks again.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
