Lance I have no real answer for you. I am so glad Ember has been doing well. I worry so much about every thing with Junior. He has been battling a URI for months now. We are back to antihistamines as he gone though 3 antibiotics the last was zithromax. He is a little better now. I was real worried.
I am sure a Ember will be just fine.
