One week left

Hard to believe that there is only one more week of summer for Ella Rose. It has been a great summer, but Ella is ready to go back. She might be tired of all the family bonding.

I haven't posted in over two months! Our summer is going great. A little busier than I would like, but we are enjoying it. Ella has gone to TCU Cheer Camp, McLeland Tennis Camp, Kids Camp, and has Art Camp left. Emilee has done Kids Camp, Camp Ellie, and has VBS coming up.

Carter Update from Jason

Sunday Carter Update 5/29: After Carter's pain med dose increased yesterday, he slept well last night. Much like yesterday, Carter slept most of the day. Moving him seems to cause him even more discomfort. He woke up for brief times today, but not even kissing his feet could get any smiles from him. His hospice team is seeing signs that Carter's time with us is likely more limited than we would like to hear.

Jackson Herdman: 1999-2011

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge, there is a land of meadows, hills, and valleys with lush green grass. When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are young again. Those who are maimed are made whole again. They play all day with each other. There is only one thing missing: They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth. So, each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly looks up! The nose twitches. The ears are up. The eyes are staring. And this one suddenly runs from the group. You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.
