I get the point

Coltrane's necropsy results* and Miles' birth certificate both arrived in the mail yesterday, one on top of the other.

I think the universe is trying to tell me something...

*Yes, we had to call UGA to get the results even in light of the fact that they repeatedly told us they'd call when the results were available. When Mark called, he was also informed that: (a) the results came back over a week ago, (b) while Coltrane did pass away from the staph infection, they didn't test to confirm that it was a recurrence of the same infection (and tried to reason that maybe our house dog who was on limited activity because of his knee, contracted MRSA again instead of it lingering in his blood) and (c) the orthopedic who last saw Coltrane (who prescribed the prenisone and who still has yet to call and offer any condolences) knew about what happened right after it happened. So much for the teaching part of their hospital. While I'm doing my best to put this behind me, each time I try, shit like this happens and I just can't get past the anger.

I'm so sorry about your Coltrane. He looks like such a happy, friendly dog. I know a part of your family is missing.

My sister lost her beloved cat just a few months before her first daughter was born.

Your son is too cute! So precious. I love his Star Wars nursery--my brother would love it! I should show him! He has some of those Hallmark ornaments for their family Christmas tree.

Thanks again for the comment--your dresses are beautiful. (I sent you an e-mail, but I wanted to comment here as well.)

Have a great day!
