I think the past two weeks have caught up with me just as I headed back to work Sunday morning.
There was the preparation for our team training at Canine Companions for Independence even before that, but the studying and classes and then three trips to the hospital have left me spent.
I’m glad it’s now my weekend because I need some rest.
Paige and I were up early Sunday. We realized with me going back to work and her heading to the hospital to be with J.P. meant Karina would be crated at home for hours on end. We didn’t want to do that, so we took her to the hospital with us. She was very good.
J.P. is also doing much better, and I hope he’ll be getting discharged soon. He’s no longer vomiting, and his gastric bug seems to be subsiding. With all of that improving, his sodium levels are almost back to the normal range.
The chance to get everyone home together sounds absolutely wonderful. I might even get to run again.
I had the chance today to do a bit of blog housekeeping. The Gallery page now has the three videos from the series WESH-TV did at Canine Companions. I’ll also be adding more photos to that page in the days ahead.
WESH-TV also did a short piece Sunday on the graduation ceremony at SeaWorld. I’m hoping they post that video so I can embed it, too.
I’m looking forward to getting to see more of J.P. and Karina together as his condition improves, and I hope Paige and I can get things wrapped up with Canine Companions so we can take Karina in public with us.
It’s been a journey with a lot of ups and downs, welcome memories and others I would rather forget, but it was all made better by amazing people — both longtime friends and new acquaintances.
We saw again that there are people who will never let you down and others who showed that when the going got rough, they were ready to help in anyway possible.
I hope I can return the favor or pay it forward in the future as we all navigate life’s detours.
