The worst day of my life...

Christmas was really nice. My cousin Rich and his family came over to celebrate with us.
Friday evening my brother and his family from Modesto came over and they stayed until Sunday. We had a KILLER prime rib roast that I got from Costco and Heather told me how to cook it. Corinne stayed here for a couple of days, her mom is coming to get her tonight.
Yesterday was one of the saddest days in my life. Corinne and I went to see Marley and Me and I pretty much cried through the whole movie. After that we went to Mobo's and bought home some sushi because Brodie had a doctor's appointment. They took an x-ray and told me that Brodie has bone cancer. If I have her leg amputated and put her through chemotherapy she might last a year but they strongly recommend I do nothing and they will keep her as comfortable as possible until she's not comfortable any more. I can't remember the last time I have been this sad. Every time I look at her I can't stop myself from crying. I always try to cry when there's nobody around but this time it's just not working.
Heather has been so busy but she came by tonight and made an awesome dinner of sea bass with a macadamia nuts, tangerine and avocado salsa she also made some basmati rice and asparagus. The other day she made seafood crapes, eggplant and my favorite roasted potatoes.
Susanna called in sick this morning so I ended up stuck in bed, Corinne and I were going to spend the day at the boardwalk because she's leaving in the morning. I like to stay in bed and rest once in a while but when you hear bad news it gives you WAY too much time to think.

I'm so sorry Tammie about Brodie; poor little dog and poor you!!! what heartbreaking news to get :(

I'm glad you had a nice Christmas though

I did hear Marley and Me was a good movie; I read the book and I remember when I picked it up to buy it, I knew it would end sad; I remember crying at the end of it

I hope you and Brodie have as many good days as you both can have together sharing some special times and making memories for you

betty
