Talked to Ray a few days ago. He and Becky were coming down this way yesterday for something unrelated and since they've been hitting haunted houses all over the place, they wanted to know if Jim and I wanted to go to one/some with them.
During the phone call, two things came up. First, that little chihuahua they got and doted on like a baby (from what I can gather, I never saw it)? I'm confused on the details, but apparently it fell out of the truck and smashed on the pavement, Becky lost her balance trying to catch it and wound up landing on top of it, and it died.
Second, Becky supposedly has cancer... some tumors on her stomach or insides or something (Mike might have more detail on this). I asked Ray twice and both times he says that they were tested and came back positive. They want to take them out but with that aneurysm it's a risk, so they're meeting with the surgeon next week to discuss options.
So last night we did meet them at our local Walmart and went to a really lame haunted house with them---wasn't scary, but it was fun so I'm glad we went.
It was nice that you got together last night, even if the haunted house was lame. LOL
I'm sorry about the dog. I never met it either, but it sounded like they doted on it. Losing it must have been very upsetting for them, particularly it dying that way, with Becky falling on it. She must feel responsible for killing it. How awful.
And about Becky, what's next? If it's true (and we really do hear so many stories ... ) it's just terrible. I feel bad for her. I hope they can do something for her.
