This is my cousin's dog, Mello. (Or Melo, I can't remember...) He's the sweetest chocolate lab I've ever met, and he's super loving and excitable. He also is a big ham, and will pose for picture after picture (if you're holding a treat!)
Well, in 24 hours my mom will be in surgery, having her kidney removed. I feel nervous, of course, but also just anxious at the thought of all of the family being there, and me having to relay and interpret information for my grandparents. Luckily, my good friend Meg will be there to make things not so crazy. Most of my friends have been incredibly supportive and I am so lucky!
Here is a link to my mom's caringbridge site again- she should update tonight with some more information, but send her some good thoughts!! www.caringbridge.org/visit/judysmith2
