Full Circle

We FINALLY finished swimming lessons today. We weren't suppose to wrap up until tomorrow, but Ms. Ali said the boys did so well she didn't see any reason for them to come tomorrow. I was so excited until I looked at Nathan and he began to weep. He went from crying because he didn't want swimming lessons to crying because he didn't want swimming lessons to end. He's cried off and on for a few hours saying he wants to see Ms. Ali. He has such tender heart..........it's one of the many things I love about him.

Mocha (our dog) will be going in for surgery tomorrow. We found a lump on her neck 2 1/2 years ago. A needle biopsy said it was probably cancer, but we wouldn't know unless we had it removed. Since we aren't into doggy chemo or radiation and it wasn't causing her any problems we thought it best to leave it alone. It has slowly increased in size, but now week to week I can tell it's getting even bigger. She had a vet appointment today and I made the decision to have it removed. I'm scared she's going to scratch it open and really hurt herself. It doesn't appear to cause her any pain, but as big as it is it must be uncomfortable. I'm praying it's a smooth surgery and that the pathology comes back benign. Even if it is cancer hopefully she'll have a good recovery and be around a bit longer.
