Jan, I shiver to think of what you must go through. I still tear up thinking about my old baby. I was looking for the old carrier today and didn't find it. I am almost happy I can't find it as that tangible reminder would probaby make me cry again.
Catlvr, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your husband! Pets can really help heal us in times like those. I remember a good cry I had into my kitty's sweet fur after I had a miscarriage.
I am anxious to post pics. Tomorrow is the big day!
