Update from Toliver

Hi friends, Toliver here.  My person, Forrest had a really good day today.  
He had some special visitors and video chats.  

FaceTime with Austin!  I miss seeing puppy Martin, but I hope that
he is doing good in his training with CCI.

Megan, Abby and Tina drove up just to visit us today.  I don't know who was more excited to see them, me or Forrest!  They helped me take Forrest for a walk and then we all had lunch together.

We had nice FaceTime with Scott and his family.  Scott is a courageous cancer warrior and it was
fun for Forrest and Scott to be able to encourage each other.  And....I got to meet a cute girl - Scott's dog Carrie!  I'm a little smitten.

Dr. Kumar says that Forrest has never looked or sounded better!  I think his improved noggin' looks pretty awesome.  Forrest's new Hickman IV port was causing him a little bit of pain today and the drain in his head is really bothering him.  But....great news - the drains are supposed to come out in the morning and we should be BrightWood bound TOMORROW afternoon!!!!  
I can't wait to be home!

Thank you for all of the prayers and messages you send to my boy Forrest.  Looking forward to seeing you all soon in Middleburg!


I got extra snuggles for writing the blog  :)


  1. So glad to hear the good news. Can't wait to hear all the amazing things Forrest does next!

  2. Look at that beautiful head, can't wait to see it in person!

  3. Great post, Tollie, and great photo, especially of you typing. I'm happy your person, Forrest the Great is doing so well, and will be home soon--you 2 have a lot of exciting adventures ahead of you. I don't do anything but sit around and look pretty all day, but my people like me anyway. Maybe we can meet for treats some day?
