A Bittersweet Beginning

We have not received word that our imminent placement has been rescheduled, so we're currently preparing to receive our first Little Darling at 11:00 tomorrow morning. Wish us luck.

Concurrently, we're preparing to have Carmi put down. She's been ailing pretty badly lately, and she's now exhibiting symptoms of either severe dehydration (and throwing up any water we get into her) or neurological problems. The vet's closed tomorrow, so we'll have to muddle through tomorrow somehow and I'll be taking her for her last ride Tuesday, barring a miracle.

I suppose we'll be distracted tomorrow...but we've waited long enough with enough anticipation that I think we'll be able to maintain our concentration.

Here's to the beginning of a long-foreseen chapter of our lives. I'll provide appropriate details of the adventure as they become available and appropriate.

Sorry to hear about Carmi, may your memories of her comfort you when the time comes. Also good luck with the placement (assuming it really takes place at this time).
