John's cellulits is NOT going away, despite topical creams and 3 rounds of different antibiotics in the past month, both oral and 2 in the butt. In fact, the cellulitis is growing again.

So, when his class is over at noon, he will drive himself to a hospital and request IV therapy. This is incredibly stressful, having your love in a hospital hundreds of miles away. I checked Travelocity last night and I could have secured a flight to Chicago tonight for $220 RT that would return me here Monday morning. When I told him about it, he was adamant that I not come. That we don't have the money, that it's not fair to Normie to leave him, that he can handle it on his own.

Ugh! Men!

In other news, I get to meet Wife #2 for the first time in 3.5 years on Sunday. She was the one with John when they adopted Clyde and Normie was her pick, despite John not wanting a Terrier or a puppy. When he called her Sunday to break the news of Clyde's death, my heart went out to her and I told John that if she wanted a Norman fix, I would be available for her to come by to visit while he was gone for the next month. She left a message on the home machine yesterday and last night, we set Sunday afternoon as the time she'll come over.

I'm wondering now how to make this less awkward.

It should be less awkward if you don't focus on the fact that she's his ex. Treat her as you would any friend of a friend.

Hmmm, maybe you know someone in Chicago who would be available to check on John, maybe even visit him at the hospital?

He's not exactly IN Chicago. He's in a suburb North of the city--- Buffalo Grove.

He might be right, but it still SUCKS! :-(

As for W#2...like anais said, treat her like a friend-of-a-friend and focus on the dogs.

Anais also had a good point about possibly knowing, well, um, shrug, I dunno, SOMEONE in Chi-town who could help out? At least you'd know he wasn't alone.

Hmmm. Really, she said everything that needed to be said. I guess I'm just adding an extra HUG and moral support.

Hugs are important.

I'm sorry about Clyde.

Maybe if you have some good doggie photos you could scan them for her or something.

If Normie is missing Clyde, it might do him good to see her too.
