Must Be a Miracle

I have good news to report today!! My grandpa is officially breathing on his own and talking!!! I titled this entry "Must Be a Miracle" because with everything that was going on with him nearly all of it was bad news. For him to talk and breathe on his own is an achievement! His lung infection is healed, and both lungs are working :) Thank you for the prayers!!
As far as zoo news, the dolphins are great! The girls are in the back pools as we wait for the calf to be born, which could be any day!!! fingers crossed!

Hola Mis Amigos
So to keep you all updated: life's been a lil crazy lately... as my last entry mentioned, I finished at omaha. After finishing there, I went to Fargo and VERY much so enjoyed my short time there!! I was able to see a whole bunch of people. I just wish that I could of seen everyone. So far at the Minnesota Zoo, it is going very well!! I love watching the dolphins, so this is perfect!!! Still looking for a full-time job so no change on that front. So if you hear of any, let me know! Dean is 10 hours away in the far west North Dakota. At the end of the summer, I will have seen him 3 times over the summer. But as far as everything else, my grandpa is in critical care. So far he has deteriorating kidneys, a shocked lung (breathing with one lung right now), heart damage, swollen from fluid build-up, and an intestinal infection. This is all because of a surgery to fix an artery near the kidneys, where they had to slow them down and then start them up again. If anyone prays, please send them his way. Our family appreciates it!
<3 fingers crossed
