I Am Alive

Sorry I have been MIA for the last week.  We have been so busy.
I will catch up tomorrow with everyone’s blogs once S has gone to work.
S’s Mum & Dad arrived on Sat.  His Dad went home Sun but his Mum stayed until today.  S had the whole time off work so the three of us have been VERY busy.
Also Frankie, who has NEVER been in a kennel but is FULLY vaccinated got really sick through the week.  We took her to the Vet and found she had Kennel Cough.  The Vet told us that young dogs (as well as old dogs) can still get Kennel Cough if they come into contact with it.  We do take her to the dog park a few times a week and last week there was a dog there who’s owner told us her dog had a cough and their Vet told her to stay away from the dog park for 14 days but she didn’t think it was necessary!  So I’m guessing that’s where and who Frankie caught it from.  Poor thing has been coughing so much that she vomits all the time.  The first night she was up ALL night coughing.  I felt so terrible that I couldn’t fix her.  The Vet said we are still fine to take her to the dog park once she is better but we will be responsible dog owners and keep her home for 2 or 3 weeks.  I would HATE someone else’s dog to catch it.
Shes a little better and is on antibiotics as well as cough mixture.  We have to take her back to the Vet in a week to make sure shes getting better.
She is an outside dog and only ever comes in if we have storms but today it has rained so much and she looks so miserable that I brought her in on the tiles.  As soon as I opened the door and told her to come in she picked up her teddy and ran to sit on the mat we put down for her when shes inside.  It was such a pathetic sight!

Sending Hugs To ‘Beautiful Curves’

Bloody hell May is turning out to be a bloody terrible month.
Please pop over to ‘Beautiful Curves’ and give her a huge hug.
Life can be just so unfair. There are just no right words.

2 Years

Two years ago we turned Zak’s ventilator off. Two years ago today our beautiful boy struggled to breath on his own. After 7 hours of fighting hard, many cuddles and kisses from him Mum & Dad it all become to hard. He went to sleep peacefully never to wake again.
He is missed EVERY single day and loved more than I ever though was possible.

Our Afternoon At ‘Zak’s Place’

Wanted to thank you all so much for all your kind comments for Zak, S & I. It just amazes me how there is so much support from so many people who I have never met. To think we all live all over the world but we can be there for each other like we live 5 minutes down the road.
We had a really nice afternoon. We met all our family where Zak’s ashes are scattered and let 2 blue balloons go for him.
We also had some flowers and S and my sister took them down to the water and then we went and had something for dinner. It wasn’t morbid or depressing. Just nice to be with family.
S just wanted you to know we got a beautiful hot pink balloon for Chloe. I will email you all the extra pics we took. Here is just a couple.
M-A we also got Piper, Laine, Houdini & Grover a balloon each. I cant begin to tell you how tangled all these balloons get in the back of our car. 🙂

15th May 2006 – A Much Wanted & Loved Baby Boy Was Born


Zak would have been 2 years old today. He would have been opening up loads of presents, having a party with family and friends, running around with his cousins, eating too many lollies, blowing out candles and eating cake. But he’s not. He’s not here where he should be. He’s not playing with new toys. He’s gone!
I feel sick, sad, angry, pissed off BIG time and guilty.
Today we are off to the beautiful beach where Zak’s ashes were scattered. We are going with my family. We will take some balloons and then we will wonder down to the BBQ tables and have dinner together. One little person will be missing but definitely not forgotten.
Happy second birthday beautiful boy. You are so very, very missed but talked about often and loved always.
Love Mummy & Daddy
