The Latest

So many people have visited this blog over the last 48 hours! Thanks for joining the Chad-love network.

Chad is still staying close to home, completing his exercises and forging new information routes within his brain. Shannon is doing everything she can to facilitate his return to health. They are both trying to rest.

Shannon’s dad is in town now, and her mom will be back within two weeks. Chad’s mom and dad have been highly participatory throughout the surgery and subsequent recovery. All of the siblings – Shannon’s lovely sister Tori and Chad’s millions of siblings – have also been on hand to supply loads of love and support.

Many of you have wondered how you can help, and those of you who work at PetSmart (there are a lot of you!) will soon have an opportunity. Please mark your calendars for Saturday, April 11, 2009 from 2 to 5pm, and stay tuned! As soon as I get the word from Amber, I will post more information.

For friends and family not employed by PetSmart, there will be other opportunities to help. Someone suggested a topless car wash, for when Chad is feeling better. But Shannon thinks we might get arrested.

Feel free to post additional ideas to help Chad heal, and please post more comments for Shannon and Chad!


  1. Hey Chad and Shannon!
    I'm so happy to hear that you are at home now, Chad. I wish you an incredibly speedy recovery, we sure do miss you. The Pet Care Ops team is thinking of both of you and praying for you.

  2. UM.... can I just ask a question? Why does this label read "toplessness" Jaime? I saw it before and decided to check back and see if it has changed. Nope. :)
