Duh, should have read further before posting. I'm jumping all over the place because I keep missing stuff. Grrr. Glad you're not getting hit, Alicia!

I wonder if the bug that is going around right now creates a lot of sinus pressure or something? Addison was complaining about her face hurting. Sorry J is still sick!

My mom is in Haiti right now and she is supposed to fly out tomorrow, but wasn't sure if the flight would be canceled due to Frankenstorm. Stay safe, everyone! Is it supposed to hit you, Alicia?? Looks like Val will get some rain, too.

Haha - Alicia, thanks for the laugh. DH takes over holiday planning sometimes and I always let him go until the day before, when I call his mom/stepmom, get the scoop directly from them, then I redirect any poor planning and make sure we're adequately packed.

Gabe loves Tinkerbell but A isn't such a big fan anymore. :) I love carmel apples...what a perfect combination!

Alicia, gray is moving very slowly (partly due to the blindness). you can tell that his hindquarters are very achy (which is common in end stage kidney disease). He does not seem to be in a lot of pain. He is loosing weight now and i have to give him sponge baths because it is starting to get hard for him to groom. But every night when the kids are in bed and i sit down on the couch, he joins me and purrs and rubs against me. The things we are doing are helping keep him comfortable, though i never though we would go as far as fluids. I am starting to question his quality of life. if he drops too much weight it will probably be time. It is hard to decide because of the snuggling and purring.

Where does your MIL live, Karen?

Alicia...they still aren't sure exactly where its gonna hit.  I've heard anywhere from maryland to Maine.  And CT is right in the middle of the two.  The latest was that NJ was gonna take a direct hit.  DH has many relatives there.  The next few days will be interesting.

I just heard about Frankenstorm on the radio this morning. Are they expecting it to be bad? We're supposed to get a little bit of rain on Saturday and Monday is supposed to be cold but I think that is the worst for us.

Parts of Idaho and Utah got snow last night. Blah! I'll keep my 80 degrees and sunny thank you very much!

Jordan still isn't feeling well. He's been kind of warm today so I figure he has a bit of a fever but I haven't gotten the thermometer out. He's laid around and watched a few movies and moaned here and there. He keeps complaining his mouth hurts. I've looked but can't see anything out of the ordinary. I think I'm going to see if I can get him into the peds office in the morning.
