A visit to the Phoenix Zoo with the family
Some of you know and some of you might not know, my hubby Mike is a 4 year liver transplant recipient. Our Son Scott was the living donor. They both checked into the Mayo Clinic Hospital the same morning... They took our Son in first and took 60 % of his beautiful healthy liver and sewed him up and sent him to intensive care then took in my Husband Mike and totally took out his damaged liver and put our son's 60% piece into Mike. As soon as the Doc.'s hooked it up it started working perfectly... In the coming weeks, Scott's would regenerate rather rapidly and the piece in Mike from our Son would grow to a healthy size and after 2 months both Father and Son's livers would be normal size. Amazing isn't it?
What has THIS got to do with Our Door Wednesday?
Well every year the Mayo Clinic Hospital sponsors a reunion. This year they heald it at the Phoenix zoo! They had a BBQ for us then set us loose at the zoo! We had a great time and it was a beautiful day!
The luckiest man who received part of his son's liver...

Everyone petting the amazing sting ray's at Sting Ray Bay
The sting rays are healthy, happy and playful and very soft.
This sting ray was eating a shrimp from my fist.
It was a beautiful day and celebration of happiness and wellness.
UPDATE on Agave Plant:
To see the first post click here...
Today the bloom stalk is 6 feet high and growing every day!
I also took this photo of the first look at the blooms emerging.
A neighbor told me that I won't lose the whole plant, just the part that the bloom stalk is coming from... the ones at the feet of the mother plant will continue to thrive... Whew...
Here is a photo of the children at the feet of the Mother Agave that is going to bloom.
