Rufus had a rough arrival! He was sent to Megan's grandmother's house by accident, and she didn't know what to make of him. Now that he is here, we are enjoying looking through all of his stuff and reading about his adventures. Tonight we are going to give him a bath. Tomorrow we are going to take him to the cottage and insert his MiniMed pump.
August 31-September 2 2002
Rufus went to the cottage with us. We went for boat rides, on our seadoos, and he watched us swim and water-ski. He had a great weekend.
