Happy Halloween, well not really

My Grandfather is doing well, he even took a few steps yesterday in physical therapy. Mentally he is still upset that he has to stay in the hospital. Yesterday he asked me to wheel him over by the door so he could leave. He still doesn't know that from the hospital he has to go to a rehab. I don't know when we'll break that to him.

Yesterday we also found out that Parker has a mass cell tumor. He had a biopsy last week and it came back positive. He will have surgery next week to remove it. We won't know more untill the doctor removes the entire lump. This morning vinay's Mom called us crying she was so upset.

We will still try to make this a happy Halloween for Olivia. This afternoon we are going to the hospital in her costume, so she can show off. And later we'll go trick or treating around our neighborhood. I think Liv will actually like answering the door better.
Please pray that health and peace come over this family we are really in a tailspin from this week!!!

I am glad that your grandfather is doing better physically. I am a nurse and it is normal for older people to have some confusion after surgery. That will clear up with time. Sorry about your other family member. I will be praying.

Liv's costume is so adorable.

Glad Grandpa is doing well!!!

Soooo sorry about Parker!!!!!! My heart goes out to you!!!! My sister had a 2 year old boxer the same color as Parker and she was diagnosed with the same thing last year and it grew extremely rapid. They said it was unusual in such a young dog but common for the breed. I hate that you and Parker are going through the same thing.

I will be praying for all of you.
