Ellie (Eleanor Rigby)

Yes, we decided on this name. Her first complete day at home was great after we found her under the love seat in the family room where she was hiding. Sydney is sooo excited to have a buddy! Here's more pictures.

Miss Kitty

Well, that's the name that the animal shelter gave her. She was found with a broken, infected front leg that had to be amputated. She is an absolutely perfect Siamese kitten, only 3 mos old! We're still looking for that perfect name for her. At this point I like Eleanor Rigby and call her Ellie, but Mia thinks it's too sad a name. I also came up with Heather Mills, but after we all got done laughing hysyterically, we thought against it. (After all, she's trying to fleece our favorite Beatle!) Here's a couple of pictures of her. Don't think for a minute that only 3 legs slows her down much!

Weight Loss Surgery

I had my 1st appointment with the surgeon this week. Dr. Suh (pronounced "Saw") seems very nice and everyone who has had him was VERY happy with him. Next week I am going to the required seminar Monday evening and on Thursday I have my required psych evaluation. It's a little scary and very exciting all at the same time. Thank goodness I have my very supportive family and my friends from Kaiser to help me through it all!
