Poor Bubba

So we found out today that our Bubba most likely has cancer. They can't diagnose it for sure unless we do a surgery to remove the mass in his lung. The doctor said at his age (11) the surgery would only give him a few more months so we are not going to do it. We are looking at 3-4 more months with our Bubba.
Just to say a few things about this dog is very difficult. He represents nearly everything that Joe and I have done together. He was our very first baby and the best dog ever. Of course he was a little psychotic here and there, but that just made us love him more! It is strange how being posed with such a horrible loss I realized last night how incredibly blessed I have been! I have an amazing husband and an incredible son and we have been able to love 3 great dogs too! We may have gone through tough times with infertility but that just seems so insignificant now. Here we wait for our poor Bubba to leave us yet also for our beautiful daughter to join us. I guess that is why they say life works in mysterious ways. I would have loved to have had a picture with Bubba and all of our children, but we just don't always get what we hope for and I know I need to be thankful for all the amazing things I have right now.
Sorry this post rambled, but it has been a very tough week and focus is not my best skill these days.

USCIS fingerprint appointment

September 2nd is the next big day in our long adoption wait. We got an updated home study this past week from our new home study agency too. Quite the hassle this time around, but it is done! After this appointment I think our adoption process will be very quiet for several months. I'm guessing we will get our 171-H in a few months after the fingerprints but other than that we won't have much going on. I guess I should be thankful that we won't hit the update everything faze for about six more months. Then the scramble will begin again.
