Anyway, I want to thank the grandparents and those wonderful “great” aunts for your beautiful comments posted below. Your love and support mean so much to us. I don’t know how we would’ve gotten through this last year and half without you!
I also want to thank those of you who sent me comments on the blog via email or in person. It’s nice to know that you will be following along these next few months.
For anyone that wants to comment but doesn’t know how – I’m not 100% sure either. However, what I believe you need to do is click on the word “comments”. In the new screen that comes up you can type your comment. I think you need to start a google account first. This doesn’t cost anything or mean anything – it just allows you to comment. I love to read the comments and hope to print them out and start a journal for Bennett.
Bowser is a sweet, gentle, good natured dog that will be turning 11 years old soon. An old man by doggie standards – but don’t tell him that – he still thinks he’s a puppy. This morning, my father was here watching Bennett (which he does every morning to help me out) while I was hobbling around trying to get caught up on some basic housework. He called me over to help get something out of Bennett’s mouth. We had no idea what it was as all he had access to were his toys. Since he can’t crawl or walk yet, I don’t have to worry much about him getting into stuff. Anyway, after prying his little jaws open, I discovered a dog kibble that had been well chewed and sucked on. It turns out that my generous dog had brought him the kibble when we weren’t looking! Nice of him to share. I guess he figured it was the least he could do as Bennett insists on sharing with him during every meal by throwing food all over the kitchen from his high chair.
We have another physio appt. tomorrow. I’ll post an update then. I also promise to post Part 2 of Our Story. For those of you who know what happened next, you’ll know why I’m reluctant to put my experience into words. However, it’s an important part of the story.
