I just wanted to reach out and say Hi. For those of you who read I hope you all had a great time at March in the Pugs. I had (we) had wanted to go but I am just so exhausted. Work is really taking it's toll on me.

I went to DC for a conference last weekend and got back 9pm on sunday night and then worked all week. I had some off campus and oral practical exams this week so it was very time consuming. I was honestly hoping I could make it through the week.

Anyway the pugs are great. Brutus had surgery while I was in DC. He had 2 adenoid tumors taken off of his eye and a large tumor taken from his left rear area around his tail. He made it through like a champ.

My Dad is on a lung transplant list and tonight I found out earlier today his lung collapsed. He is ok for now but the first 24 hours are critical. I am on spring break and probably going to go home tomorrow. I am suppose to go to another conference on Wed thru Friday and I have no idea what's going to happen with that.

I just wanted to say Hi. I feel really bad that I didn't get to see some of you at March in the Pugs. work is killing me. I have barely been on the computer/twitter lately. I still read everyones blog and am very grateful to be a part of this community. I feel like a flake because I haven't been to many events lately. I just wanted to say Hi.

  5. Awww, Stacy! You don't need to apologize! I'm glad Brutus made it through his surgeries okay. And I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad! I am saying a prayer right now for your Dad to get a new lung and make it through this all okay. And for strength for you and the rest of your family. I'm only a phone call away. And I've been through all this with my Dad too. :-/
