Well Hello everyone! It’s been quite the rollercoaster ride the last few weeks. Dad is doing much better now and at 85, after 2 emergency surgeries last week, is now in physical therapy. He is much healthier than most people his age so we are thankful that he was strong enough to withstand a difficult time. Thanks to everyone who has been concerned and have sent along their well wishes and prayers for him as it appears that they have worked well and he will be back to his normal routine in a couple of weeks!
Ever been to Thailand? Well, our good friendÂ Dr. Patrick Mahaney of California Pet Accupuncture and wellness has and he takesa a few moments to talk with us about his experience there and the state of the animals living in Singapore, Bankok, and the Phi Phi islands. Listen to the show for the interview and check out his column at the Examiner!
I will be appearing at the Book Expo of America in New York City at the Javits Center for the Mom’s Choice Awards for a book signing on Friday May 29th at 2PM at booth #345 and on Saturday at 3pm at the Main Author Signing area at 3pm at table #19.
