* Possum is sick

After his trip to Nashville he was admitted to the hospital on Sunday for IVS. He spent the day at home on Monday & Tuesday, Joel surprised him with a new puppy yesterday. I think everyone knows about their Dog woes. Last night Possum took a turn for the worst and now is back in the hospital. Pray for Possum..
