Where to begin? So much happened between May and July, shame on me. Here is the obvious new thing...on June 20th I had my right knee replaced. A needed surgery that has become a very painful recovery. Two weeks prior to the surgery Niko and I travelled to Cali to find him a future home. He now resides in North Hollywood and has a job at Target. He has been gone for 6 days and it feels like at least 2 weeks.
