Mark, very very warm thoughts to you and Sammie.
It completely bites that this has been such an unrelenting ordeal, but it's so clear that your love and support have made such a huge difference in getting through this.
(((HUGS))) and all the love in the world to both of you.
God sent angels down to earth in the form of dogs with notes saying 'don't judge, just love.' They ate the notes but keep trying to deliver the message.
