I am not sure how much longer Trip will be with us. The cancer has caused him to eat and drink so little that his doctors now think it will be a matter of days at most before he leaves us. I spend most of my day now at his home and with other friends who have taken on the task of caring for him. Lori Lauver, DVM (the woman who has trained with him for the past seven years) has cleared out her appointments this week to stay with him 24/7.
His executor Jim Alburg and close friend Lois Yukins are coming in over the next 24 hours.
It is with some uneasiness that I sit here at his dining room table updating this blog. This morning it was time to go through dozens of his emails and fashion a reply to everyone. Still, there is a lot of caring from friends going on here. I could only hope for the same.
