Teresa, You are wonderful! I could never thank you enough for the help and comfort you have been to me. I am doing better today. I am just trying not to think about it. I have too many other things on my mind such as my kids, my husband, my pain...These things keep me busy. Well, it's not so much as I am thinking about the pain, it just can't be missed. And then there is the pain medicine. I can't think straight. I am GOOFY! I know we will miss my little baby. IT was fun having a little puppy in the house from the day it was born. I had never done that before. It surely hs been a learning experience. Thanks again for all your help.

Love and hugs, Jenny
