Bear

Prior to leaving for the River- Bear threw up blood again (4:30 a.m.). He has tonsillitis (3 times the size they should be). He is on an antibiotic and appears to be recovering well- he had a good time at the River.

While we were on our cruise, we took an excursion to Grand Cayman to swim with the Stingrays. This was the only thing my mom wanted to do on this trip, so we made sure to take her. She absolutely loved it, and so did we (although I was a bit timid). I finally uploaded these to FlickR for anyone that wants to see them. 🙂

Met with the minister- working out the ceremony, picked the music (above is song after vows- there will be 3 songs sung and instrumental to walk in), got pedi/mani’s, Linda is tanning, Karen is not!, got new earrings, slimmed down the menu, ordered food, made announcement, so we are almost there…

“Face Of Love”

until tonight 
 my heart was just half full 
 i'd never known the fruit which fed the soul 
 but now i see what may put to rest my longing
 for i have seen, the face of love
 the grace of god, the face of love
 in silence i feared my heart 
 would remain words unheard 
 inside a separateness of skin 
 but now i know that the skin just veils the soul
 for i have seen, the face of love 
 the grace of god, the face of love
 so take my hand and knowing 
 with it i also give my heart 
 wanting never to be separate again 
 let eternity begin
 if you were flame 
 i'd allow myself to be consumed completely 
 were you wind i would wish you pass through me 
 but now i know that the skin just veils the soul
 for i have seen, the face of love 
 the grace of god, the face of love

Update: He is still receiving fluids at the vet (IV & subcutaneous) and still receiving a shot for nausea. Our vet was there today and did diagnosis him with pancreatitis. A big concern is many dogs who have this develop diabetes (are you kidding me?)

He did eat some last night and today, Jan sat with him today so he was not alone- still very lethargic but I think we are over the hump…again, thanks for all the prayers. He has 2 happy mommas tonight!

Still very sick (“not out of the woods” per vet) but better than yesterday so keep those prayers coming…thanks for all the texts, calls and prayers- they mean a lot.

This little guy jumped into the front garden and ran around from side to side and back to front and then stuck his head up like-did you see me run? Then he went out and laid down in the grass to chill- until I went out to mow and then he hide in the flower garden out front. Made me smile!

The cicadas will begin emerging from the soil in early to mid-May, depending on how quickly weather conditions warm soil temperature. Current conditions could prompt the emergence to begin May 10 to May 12 in the Kansas City and St. Joseph areas.
Cicada nymphs will open half-inch holes in the soil surface as they emerge. Some may build three- to five-inch tall mud chimneys above their holes. Wingless nymphs will climb up on trees and other objects, shed their exoskeletons, and become adults with wings. That leaves brownish paper shells that resemble shed skins attached to trees, porches and posts.
Adults will climb or fly into trees. Males will join together to form choruses to attract females. Or consider it a jam session with instruments. Male cicadas rapidly flex two drum-like structures in their abdomens called tymbals. The flexing produces a click, and the clicks come so fast it produces a raspy hum. They sing during the day with the loudest drone rising during the hottest part of the day.

The cicadas’ emergence will mark the only time this century that a 13-year and a 17-year brood are arriving at the same time in Missouri. And it will be another 221 years before these two broods come out to mate at the same time in the state.

These pictures are from our back yard- they are loud!
