I HAD TO REVEARSE A MEGAN DICTATE... SORRY--- BUT... THE BUSINESS OF REMOVING ALL THE PUPS TO THE BARN, CLEANING UP THE KITCHEN SO IT CAN LOOK SPOTLESS- AND EMPTY ALL DAY IS NOT REALLY THE GOAL OF THIS OUTFIT... TH GOAL IS TO PROVIDE THE PUPS WITH A VARIETY OF EXPERIENCES AND THEY WILL GET FAR MORE IN OUR KITCHEN THAN LOCKED IN KENNEL 10... SO I HAVE SUGGESTED WE ROTATE 2 PUPS VERY REGULARLY AS PEOPLE COME AND GO TO THE BARN...
I KNOW LEAVING THEM IN TH E KENNEL IS EASIER- AND CLEANER.... -- BUT NO ! ----EVEN IF I AM TH EONE TO SIGN THE CHECKS, IT IS THE CAMERA PEOPL WHO PROVIDE THE MONEY WHICH PAYS TEH SALARIES...THEY LIKE WATCHING PUPS AS OPPOSED TO A TIDY COUCH...
BESIDES IT IS BETTER FOR THEPUPS TO BE SHUYFFLED.... SPECIALLY SINCE I AM TOLD DAY AFTER NEXT IT MAY BE WARM AND SPRING.
SPRING-- THAT COMES AFTER BLIZZARD.. APPARENTLY-- THEY ARE TALKING 6" TODAY AND 8" TOMORROW OF HEAVY WET SLUSSHY STUFF.. SINCE THEY ARE ALSO PREDICTING 50 DEGREES ON SUNDAY I PLAN TO RAISE A TOAST , FORGET THE PLOWING AND LET MOMMY NATURE MELT THE STUFF.
WITH REGARD TO THE PERFECTLY CONTROLLED CLEAN KITCHEN-- I HAVE TO MENTION MY ANGER AT TEH PERFECTLY CONTROLLED BIT ABOUT PUTTING PEOPLE/KIDS IN WHEELCHAIRS... IT CERTAINLY IS EASIER ALOT OF TIME -- SOME OF THESE VA HOSPITALS NEED TO BE VISITED BY EVERYONE AND HAVE PEOPLE GET ACTIVE-- THERE ARE SO MANY MEN ( MOSTLY MEN) WHEELED JEXT TO THE DOOR TO THEIR ROOM NODDING OFF- WHICH LOOKS TO ME LIKE HEAVILY MEDICATED- WHILE THE CLEANING CREW CAN GET IN AND CHANGE THE BED AND SWWEEP THE FLOOR..
CLEAN BEDS AND FLOORS IS ALL VERY GOOD-- AND IMPRESSIVE TO ANYONE "INSPECTING" BUT FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN, INSPECTING THE CLEAN FLOORS IS EASY-- AND IF YOU ARE RUNNING A BUILDING TO PROMOTE CLEAN FLOORS IT IS LOVELY,, EXCEPT THE BUILDING IS SUPPOSED TO EXIST FOR THE HEALTH AND COMFORT OF THE PATIENTS... AND I NEVER SEE ANYONE COUNTING THE SLEEPING PEOPLE IN WHEELCHAIRS, WHICH IS FAR MORE TO THE POINT.
EXACT CASE INPOINT-- I WENT TO THE HUGE VA HOSPITAL IN BROCTON ( OR SOMEPLACE TAT BEGINS WITH "B" ) -- MID MORNING.... SLEEPING MEN OUTSIDE THEIR SPOTLESS ROOMS - AND I STUMBLED INTO WHAT WAS A PERFECTLY EQUIPTED EXERCISE ROOM.. A LARGE QUANTITY OF ABSOLUTELY SPOTLESS STAINLESS STEEL EQUIPMENT--- GLEAMING-- THERE WAS A PHYSICAL THERAPIST IN CHARGE OF THE ROOM... HE WAS READING A NEWPAPER... OTHERWISE THE ROOM WAS EMPTY.
THE HOSPITAL FULFILLED THE REQUIREMENT OF HAVING A PT ROOM, BUT THERE WAS A POINT MISSING..AND NO ONE SEEMED TO CARE.
MAYBE SOME DAY WHEN WE ARE NOT DELIVERING CAKES... WE COULD STORM INTO ONE OF THESE VA PLACES AND JUST ASK AWKWARD QUESTIONS... IT WOULD SHAKE THEM UP- WHICH MIGHT BE ALL IT NEEDS.. WORTH A TRY...

Hi everyone at SDP
I wanted to give you an update on the past few months with Lola. Recently we did an MS Walk in Tampa, and thanks to the CP family, we were in the top 50 fundraising team! We got a special announcement at the walk and our name on the top 50 tshirt!
Also I've been going to physical therapy with Lola and they specialize in people with balance issues. They've been helping me to relearn how to walk properly. They've also included Lola in all of our sessions. They first started teaching me how to walk properly then started integrating Lola and teaching me how to walk and not shuffle with her. Recently I was able to walk 30 steps without the assistance of Lola or the harnesses. The whole team is constantly amazed at Lola's attentiveness. They've recorded several of our sessions and Lola walks right by my side whether I've got a grip on her or not.
I've attached a recent magazine article we were in and a video of us at therapy.
Thank you for this gift. My girl continues to amaze me and everyone around us daily. Going on 4 years with my girl. I've loved every minute of every day with her!
I hope all is well with everyone and we miss you all so much!!
Michelle and Lola
