Elvira is apound over weight, and I'm waiting to hear test results on Nikita who has lost 3 lbs. in a month, for some reason, and is very skinny.

I'm still concerned about the recovery of my ankle, and being able to walk right on it, but it's time to begin to move forward, as best I can, with my life.

I decided it was not possible to attend the Blog Paws Critter Blogging Convention, in August, considering the uncertaintly of my situation, both physically, and financially, and will plan for next year, and concentraite on other avenues I have to reach out, and connect, and network.
