no pups yet from megan...
i am to pick up the pit shots- and then be in contacyt with george about giving them
if i remember correctly.. once you give the pit shots, if nothing happens you are married to a c section.
megan's mom is there-- ( and she is a very competent mom --- 40 years with the airlines---- who makes great bean salad)
so we wait... concern is the size difference in the 3 pups seen in the ultrasound...
luckily we have a cut and paste for you to mull over---
Hope this finds everyone on the mend. I am having a hard time starting this email. So many emotions going through my mind ! Last year when I visited SDP for the first time, I felt I was ready by watching on cameras and remarks that were made prior to arriving. Boy was I wrong. It takes SO much more than you can ever imagine to get everything done in a day. I was so impressed with all the volunteers and staff working in all different areas to keep it running smooth. I had no idea when Susan, Clare, and myself decided in Jan on May 2nd as our arriving date, that we would face such a difficult week. It was a very up and down week. The normal chores plus helping with very sick dogs would sometimes take more hours than a day had. I would see Susan and Clare in passing most days. We went in different directions everyday that worked out perfectly. Documentation of dogs activity was so important and charted everytime there was like simply eating to a poop report. I remember their would be a cheer when someone would have a half normal poop. Keeping up with who did what was a chore in itself. I was caught off guard the day we got the news that little Mae didn't make it. It was hard to believe. A very gray day with lots of tears shed and sadness. I know losing Lumin was ever bit as sad. Losing two was two too many but thankful.... could of been so much worse. Everyone that I worked with and came across while there gave all they had with love, compassion and determination to fight this virus !!!!! Everyone was very helpful and pleasant to work with. I only had 50 questions a day compared to 100 questions a day last year !!! I felt very appreciated being there. These dogs are treated with the upmost respect and care. They are loved beyond. I hope all that has dreams of visiting SDP will get their chance. There is no place like it !!!! I do warn people that you will leave in tears! Don't forget your work clothes !!!!!! Thank you for allowing me to come and be a part of crazy acres for a week. I look forward to next year. Kari - Nashville Sent from my iPad
