Rufus arrived and immediately jumped in and started helping Seth and I paint our kitchen walls. We took a few breaks and had a snack. Seth took Rufus around and introduced him to his beloved Pooh bear and some of his other stuffed friends. We made a quick run to our local newspaper and left some literature about Rufus's visit with us.

Rufus went with us today for Seth's endo appointment. All went well. Rufus also had his blood sugar checked by the doctor. Seth and he did an A1c on him too! LOL! Both Seth and Rufus were delighted when the doctor gave them one of his birthday balloons.

Another day filled with painting in the kitchen, and playing outside. We actually had a sunny, warm day and Seth enjoyed shooting some basketballs and Rufus cheered him on. e were delighted to receive a telephone call from our local newspaper and will have an interview and photograph with them later this week.

We had a short day today as we sent Rufus on his way to the Pratt family. We called the Pratts to let them know he is on his way and should arrive tomorrow afternoon. Seth and Pooh bear were very sad to see our new friend go away. We are looking forward to the photograph and newspaper article which should come out in the next few days. What a nice memento of Rufus's visit.
