Dad has gone to the OR to get ready for surgery. We can expect it to last about 14/16 hours, so we are here waiting it out. I wish we were the only ones in the waiting room but we are not and the other family is not a pleasant one, if we make too much noise or try to talk to one another they get all upset and give us dirty looks, thanks for adding more stress to an already stressful situation, like we really need more. I hope they are not here very long, we are going to be here all night long and then most of the morning. I really hope all goes well and dad is out of the hospital soon. Wow, the people in here are awful. Hey Kerry just walked by, nice to see friendly faces. She was a nurse he had while in here the last time she was great, dad really liked her. Cathy will be here in the morning to see him as he wakes up from the anesthesia. He was able to visit the nurses on Ellison 9, so he was happy to see his girls, and see a picture of Ellens new baby boy...Owen Thomas Hughes. I think i am just rambling to get things off my chest and to feel better as the night goes on. I am more nervous than i was the last time, my goodness am I a wreck.

We are at MGH waiting for dad to go off to surgery for his new heart. I can't believe we are here and it is really happening. We can't believe how fast everything is happening, we got the call at noon and now we are getting ready to send him off to the operating room. Thankfully the nursing staff is great and completely understanding as the realize just how nervous we all are at this particular moment. We have seen many nurses and MD's that have come in and said hello, and wished him well and said they would see us all in the morning. We are hoping to have him out of the OR by morning but he is expected to be on the ventilator till Wednesday morning.

Titan had a night out last weekend...he went to dinner wif mom,dad,papa,Grammy and my dads mom and dad...mom calls dem da in laws, but she loves dem they just are not dog people so mom had some reservations about taking Titan, but the restaurant was an hour away and Titan only goes about 3 hours in the crate before he needs to go out because he is still very much a puppy. So off they went in the car, not the Jeep...daddy wanted to take the Jeep but mom said no, the Jeep is for Riley, he is the copilot of the Jeep that is his ride...way to go mom, I no like to share da Jeep...anyways where was again? oh yeah they left and mom says that Ty does very well in the car, he loves to travel which is a good thing cause mom takes him everywhere they go...he really is a traveling puppy. OK back to the story...so mom and dad arrive and papa and Grammy are already there waiting for them, mom loves to see papa get excited when she arrives, he just beams at their arrival. Mom gets Ty out of the car and he runs right over to his papa, who just loves him to pieces, he gives papa lots of kisses. Mom gets his food all set up and water too and he goes and enjoys his dinner as does everyone else. Dad said he was a very good boy. Dads mom and dad show up and guess wha,t they think Ty is adorable and can't get enough of him, mom is relieved that they like him so much. Mom says Ty just let everyone pet him and when they were done he just went and laid down, he didn't bother anyone. Mom was so surprised how well he behaved and listened, every time mom said to sit, he did, he would also lie down on command, mom was a very proud mom indeed that day. When Ty got home he was exhausted from being out all evening and slept all night, mom was thankful for a full night sleep, which is very rare in our house since Ty's arrival, but we wouldn't have it any other way...he COMPLETES our family.

Hi everyone how are you all today...I am great, I get to hang out wif mom all day, she no have to go to work till 2am. Titan was a very good boy this morning, that was until daddy went to work then he became Titan the Terror. I have no idea why he loves mom so much, hehehe. He loves to drive mom crazy or at least keep her on her toes. He gives her a run for her money. AnnaBoo is being a very good girl today too, she took a nice nap wif daddy before he went to work, then she laid down wif mommy as she tried to figure out her netbook. I on the other hand is always a good boy. I played for hours wif Larry da Lobsta mom bought me for my birthday...I love him he is so much fun and I found his squeeky, he has two of dem and I make him squeek, mom really loves this especially when she tried to nap....ahh you bought it for me so i can squeek all I want. Mom wanted me to tell you all that I am the bestest puppy ever, no really she wanted me to tell you.

Hello, my mom is wonderful but man can she be cranky...like today I nicely try and point out that she is with papa at the HOSPITAL and she turns up on my blog???? Hello mom....have we met? I am the one who blogs on MY blog not you, keep your paws to yourself over at your Blog...wherever it may be these days...you seem to have forgotten you have a very eventful life and forgot to blog about it somewhere??? Mom please leave my blog to ME, you can visit yours and leave some nice funny stories there about me and AnnBoo and Titan, I know your blog misses you. I feel better now....So mom came home today and found me and AnnBoo lounging on the couch behaving ourselves, nothing much going on, just enjoying the nice weather we are having, no heat or humidity just a cool comfy 70 degrees, ahh then it happened....she let Titan out of his crate. Now I love this little guy and I use the word little loosely because man he is growing! He weighs in at a whopping 32 lbs, at this rate he may end up weighting more than me and I weigh 86lbs. Anyways where was I ? Oh yeah mom let Ty out of his crate and he comes running into the living room full tilt, he runs right over and grabs my ears, HELLO they are not chewies...someone? anyone? please teach this pup a thing or two about listening to me? After he was done chewing on the very not chew toys in the room he took off after AnnaBoo, she was not amused either, but hey she loves him and puts up with it. She played with him for about 45 minutes then looked at mom as if to say "ahh I have done your dirty work now get me the heck out of here" meaning open the baby gate so I can get away from him for a few minutes. Mom obliged and she was allowed to hit the big bed all alone, she was very happy to lay downl exhausted and comfy. I was all to familiar with how this was going to play out now that Boo had taken refuge in the bedroom...I was about to be attacked by Ty...when all of a sudden he lays down on the floor and falls asleep. HE FEEL ASLEEP!!! Mom could not believe it, Ty was sleeping in the middle of the day, holy cowoly there is a God. Ty Ty slept for about and hour, he woke to tell me, not mom that he needed to go outside, mom doesn't care who he tells as long as he tells someone he needs to go...he has now been housebroken now for about 2 weeks and mom is the happiest I have seen her in months. Ty went out and came back in and was content to chew on Larry da Lobsta for about 90 minutes, mom was in heaven. She got to rest her eyes...not sleep, she was all to aware that Ty was awake and at any minute could turn and chew something like the woodwork, the carpet or computer cords. Finally it was 8 pm and mom was exhausted as she had not slept in almost 36 hours, so off to bed we went, and can you believe it, Titan was still tired from all his running and chewing that he fell asleep. Mom was elated and soon was on snooze patrol herself, leaving me and AnnaBoo to look at each other and say " what are we waiting for?" I fell asleep minutes later. Daddy came home 3 hours later and took us outside and gave us a treat cause mom was awake long enough to tell him that we behaved for her....we got some of daddy's waffle, we love midnight waffles w/dad.

Hello, how is everyone? I know i have been away but I have to keep Titan in line and boy, some days that can be challenging let me tell you. He loves to remodel the house first he wasn't getting enough FIBER so he chewed the woodwork and when mom thought she had him "regular" he went and chewed the carpet in the kitchen...oh i tell ya if he weren't so darn cute ??? Mom and dad love him to pieces, we do too but man can you please stop chewing on the ears? I have made this comment before but I gonna have to say it again...my ears are NOT chewies! We bought and gave you lots of bones to chew, so stay away from da ears! Annabelle was a little skittish of Titan at first not really knowing what to make of him and if he was going to be "staying" She finally realized he is "staying" so she better get used to him being there. She is fantastic with him, mom is so pleasantly surprised by how wonderful she is with him. Titan will bark, gnaw,chew and hang on her and she NEVER lets it bother her...she has amazed us all. I on the other hand, is feeling much better after my unfortunate adventure wif da vet and his FINGER....ahem ....I am feeling better and now i really get down and play wif lil Titan, he is a lot of fun. Mom says her house is now complete...dad agrees.

Hi everyone, Titan is fitting into our family very well. He can sit and stay on command, and he knows when it is time to eat. He is adamant about eating on time, wonder where he learned this? He is getting Annabelle to channel her inner puppy, and play with him for hours, it is really fun to watch. Mom promises more videos this week as she has the next 2 days off and all to herself, no overtime at work. Please stay tuned for more.....
