Dodging the bullet...again.

Well, we (or I should say Jackson) dodged the bullet for the second time. He had another "episode" of his heart condition and almost left us. He was very clingy all day, I thought maybe cause Christopher was home sick threw him off schedule. But when Chris came home for lunch, he was bubbling and drooling at the mouth, so I took him outside and he just kept circling and coming back over to me to cuddle, and that is not like him when he is outside. Then Chris came out and Jackson just sat at his feet. I ran inside , called the vet and they told me to bring him in now! The whole drive over was the scariest time....he was breathing heavy, drooling and he would just plop his head down. I thought he was going to die right then and there. We got him into the vet and after what seemed like an eternity, they called me into the room. That was the worst, too. I just knew they were going to come in and tell me he was gone.


The vet came in and said if this dog just walked in off the street, he would have thought he was in perfect health. He said he was responsive, and his heart rate looked good. He let me take him home and I got in touch with the vet from Albany and we talked and he is going to put him on some more medication and see if that helps....

What a day! And then last night, he was so frisky, playing with his bones and acting like a two year old should act! So I have been given the gift of another day with this beautiful boy. Thank you.

NEW YORK (CNN) -- An autopsy Wednesday morning on actor Heath Ledger was inconclusive, and a cause-of-death determination will take 10 to 14 days, a medical examiner's spokeswoman said.

The Academy Award-nominated actor was found dead Tuesday of a possible drug overdose in a Lower Manhattan apartment, the New York Police Department said. He was 28.
Flowers, notes and a candle left by mourning fans remained on the sidewalk outside the Soho apartment building, but only journalists and the occasional tourist were gathered there Wednesday morning.
Ledger's former girlfriend, actress Michelle Williams, who was shooting a movie in Sweden, was informed of his death late Tuesday night, a movie production company spokesman said.
Williams left early Wednesday morning with 2-year-old daughter Matilda Rose, the spokesman said. Ledger was the child's father.
Ledger, Oscar-nominated for his role in "Brokeback Mountain," was found by a housekeeper trying to wake him for an appointment with a masseuse, said police spokesman Paul Browne.
"Pills were found in the vicinity of the bed," he told CNN. "This is being looked at as a possible overdose, but that is not confirmed yet," Browne said. Browne later told reporters some prescription medications were found in the room, including sleeping pills. He said the pills were not "scattered around," as had been reported.
No note was found and there was no indication of foul play, Browne said. Ledger was found about 3 p.m., and was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency personnel about 3:30 p.m.
Ledger's family on Wednesday called his death "very tragic, untimely and accidental."

Well, it's shit ... that's right, shit! Shit may just be the most functional word in the English language.
You can smoke shit, buy shit, sell shit, lose shit, find shit, forget shit, and tell others to eat shit.

Some people know their shit, while others can't tell the difference between shit and shineola.

There are lucky shits, dumb shits, and crazy shits. There is bull shit, horse shit, and chicken shit.

You can throw shit, sling shit, catch shit, shoot the shit, or duck when the shit hits the fan.

You can give a shit or serve shit on a shingle. You can find yourself in deep shit or be happier than a pig in shit.

Some days are colder than shit, some days are hotter than shit, and some days are just plain shitty.

Some music sounds like shit, things can look like shit, and there are times when you feel like shit.

You can have too much shit, not enough shit, the right shit, the wrong shit or a lot of weird shit.

You can carry shit, have a mountain of shit, or find yourself up shit creek without a paddle.

Sometimes everything you touch turns to shit and other times you fall in a bucket of shit and come out smelling like a rose.

When you stop to consider all the facts, it's the basic building block of the English language. And remember, once you know your shit, you don't need to know anything else!You could pass this along, if you give a shit; or not do so if you don't give a shit! Well, Shit, it's time for me to go. Just wanted you to know that I do give a shit and hope you had a nice day, without a bunch of shit.

But, if you happened to catch a load of shit from some shit-head........... Well, Shit Happens!!!
(Just wanted to add that I did not write this. So, whoever the author is I give you credit cause this shit is good!!!)

Oh, by the just happens to be ONE of my favorite words! LOL!!!

This is Zak's first year wrestling. It has been pretty crazy. I remember the days when Ned wrestled for Longmeadow and then UMASS. I have to say it is a little different when it is your son out there and looks like he can't breathe and is getting flopped around like a rag doll! I'm trying to be brave!!
