I am working on a hat for my nephew for Christmas. He got a pretty crappy present from us last year (it would have been good if he owned a guitar like we were led to believe he did) so this year he is getting what every teenage boy wants from his aunt. A knit hat.
Apollo says thanks for all the well wishes. He is getting there and hopefully when we cobble together a little cash (having our dollar at parity hasn't brought down any prices on food and gas) we will be taking him in to the vet again to switch his medications which should help the disease management more and prevent another crisis if he gets a flu bug or has stomach issues again.
