Lisa shares Daysy's Cinderella story (and some before and after pics).

on Dec 20, 2012

The scene between Lenny and I was a very tough scene to watch, because there are two things that have happened since. The first was the cycle that we did right after unfortunately failed, as did a third cycle after that one. We however have sought further professional advice and will be doing another cycle with a few modifications in hopes the recipe will give us the outcome we hope for. I will continue to do acupuncture and be as healthy as possible in the meantime. The second is about our beloved boxer, Puffy. If you have been following me on Twitter and reading my blogs, you will know our little boy in the scene succumbed to a brain tumor and died on November 20th 2012 while being held in our arms. He was like our son, so this was incredibly hard to watch. He seemed so happy, beautiful, and full of life. R.I.P. my sweet boy! He is now on a rainbow bridge waiting for the day we will be reunited.
 
We spoke about the plans for our Star Island home. Little did we know our plans to demolish and rebuild the home would be so controversial. In spite of the building crumbling and being situated 30 inches below flood level, a group of preservationists who have never been inside the home to see just how bad it is are trying to fight us on it. Over 20 pre-1942 homes have been demolished just this year, but they have chosen to make an example out of us. Fortunately the laws of Miami Beach protect homeowners like us, but it just seems underhanded how these people are trying to change the laws retro-actively. I will keep everybody posted on our progress

Thank you to all of those who have supported me throughout this journey and motivated and inspired me. I appreciate all the advice, messages, constructive criticism, and praise. Without all of you we would not be here, and I hope I have touched one of you in one way or another. I hope all of your dreams and wishes come true in the New Year and may 2013 grant many blessings to all of you!
