Mica Update...just had a visit with him in kitty ICU. He's much more active & lively, but has lost a ton of weight. He hates his cone! He's keeping the inside of the cone very clean as he try's to get to the catheter. His urine is still pretty red, but much lighter than what was coming out yesterday. They still think he'll be able to come home tomorrow. I have to say, the care he's gotten and the people working at ASH have just been wonderful. They were recommended to me by my vet. I hope you never need pet emergency services, but if you do, I'd really recommend them.
Yesterday youngest Native and I went to the farmers market. She saw a young woman (about 26 yrs old) standing there with this book in hand and vendor both full of copies of her book. I watched Gabs watch her. Turns out she wrote this book when she was just 11. Gabs loves to write and really wanted to stop so we did. She shared her story with us. She wrote the book and tried for years to get it published, her ex boyfriend told her the problem was she wasn't smart enough to have a book published. So guess what she did? She👏 got👏 her 👏book 👏published. It's sold out a few times on Amazon now, she is doing some pretty amazing things, donating parts of the money raised to different organizations, and also she donates her books to school libraries. It's an amazing story book with educational fun facts. She resides in Florida and I love that she is out and sharing her book and story, at a farmers market too! PLUS OMG HER EX SAID SHE WASN'T SMART ENOUGH AND NOW SHE IS DEDICATING A BOOK TO HIM BECAUSE SHE PERSISTED ANYWAYS AND GOT HER BOOK PUBLISHED AND GIVES BACK AND SHE IS MY SHERO. You guys, don't let anyone else's negative thoughts dictate your future. Naturally we supported her, thanked her a bunch, bought a copy and left so thankFULL knowing Gabs will carry this inspiration with her. I hope she remembers this day always.
Find her book on Amazon, support her, share her story with your sisters, mothers, cousins, friends, brothers, grandparents, sons and daughters and the world!!! .
Veterans are arguably the greatest our nation has to offer. It is only right to give back to those who have given their lives for our freedoms. For every Pristine Package serviced, one wreath will be donated up until the deadline. I strongly encourage everyone to donate so each hero has a wreath to express our admiration for their courage, honor, and bravery. #veterans#america#military#wreathsacrossamerica#giveback#swfl

Unbelievable: The "If you ain't first, you're last" team, headed by Arthrex Sr. Director Pete Denove, had started in the second wave almost an hour after the "Arthrex SpeedBridgers", and yet, they passed us before one quarter of the race was over! In this photo, Pete explains to us: "Guys, you gotta understand: Jerseys are weight, and weight slows you down!" Okay, I totally made that up; Pete never shared the secret to his team's success with us.
