No news is good news...

Once again it's been ages since I've posted.

Work has been crazy busy (nothing new there) and last weekend Mum flew over to visit us. Mum's visit unfortunately has not gone as planned. Within 24 hours she got really sick and wasn't able to leave the hotel room for 3 days. Yesterday I flew back to Sydney with her to get her admitted to hospital and get things sorted out. We would have done it in Vanuatu but the expats there have a motto, "if you're in pain, get on the plane". It's preferable to recieving health care in an under resouced hospital in a developing nation. So right now I'm back in Sydney and will be here for about a week until Mum's a bit better.

In other news, everything with me and Ben is going well and Choco is getting bigger everyday. I had to take him to the vet in the middle of June because he got sick and was throwing up. The vet gave him a vaccination against parvovirus and said that he had gastro and weighed him and he weighed 5 kilos. Last week (six weeks later) I took him back to the vet for a booster vaccination and the vet weighed him again. He weighed 10.5 kilos. In six weekis my baby has more than doubled his weight!!! I think he's gonna be a big boy. He's also started losing his teeth and getting his "big boy teeth".

I have also managed to work out this Facebook business... I'm a little bit addicted really. It's amazing who you can find on that thing!

Not much else is news at this point in time.

Once again I promise i'll try to lift my game and post more often.

Hi, Michele sent me. So glad to read your dog is doing better - I have dogs as well, and it's always stressful when something's wrong with one of them.

Hi Yaeli. Whew...glad to hear you're OK, and glad to hear that you're there for your mom. Please know that I'm praying for a fast, full recovery. You're a good daughter and a good person.

You are not only sexy (I guess, because you said so), but you are foreignated. Now I have to call up Google maps to find out where is Vanuatu or Xanadu, or wherever the heck you live when you're not doing hospital runs.

(I am here from Michele's place.)

Hello, here via Michele's, I hope everything goes alright for your mom. I understand the addiction to facebook -- I'm more so to Myspace than Facebook, but I do check both about once an hour anymore :)

Hope your mom is feeling better, Yaeli!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'll try to come back if my life permits. Added you to my blogroll. :)

Hi, I am so sorry!! I didn't mean to "call you out". I just thought that there may have been a mistake or something over a Michele's.
I read your profile and we have LOTS of similar interests. I'll have to come back and read more.

Hope your mum is better very soon.

I guess I would try to follow that advice as well. Don't want the cure to kill me!

Have fun in Sydney and thanks for your comments, I do appreciate it.

I can't find ANYONE on Facebook. Maybe its because I'm an anti-social jerk. :)

I'm glad to see that your dog is doing better. Wow...that's a lot of growing in a short time. I was also relieved to read in your latest post that your mom is doing good too. Hope that things continue to get better and a little less busy.
