Today ends my week in San Jose, California. I fly back home tomorrow morning after a very cool week of California sight seeing and an awesome SEO Conference hosted by Search Engine Strategies. This was the first SEO conference I have attended and it was well worth it! While a lot of the presentations were entry level, the ones that weren't were awesome! I've learned a lot that I will be going home and applying to various sites I deal with on a daily basis.
On Monday we arrived with the whole day to go sight seeing. Luckily for me, the co-worker I came here with used to live in San Jose and knew his way around and all the cool places to go. Monday we spent the afternoon in San Francisco. Tuesday evening we went to Santa Cruz to see the tide pools on the ocean front - what a cool place! And tonight we drove into the Silcon Valley to see the Google complex and Apple corporate headquarters. I know it's just a bunch of buildings, but it was too cool!
The week has flown by and has been exhausting. I look forward to getting home to Jason and Portia and my pups, all of whom I have missed a lot! And I can't wait to come back to California again when I have more time to really sight see and have Jason with me.

On her second day of eating full meals she began to vomit a little again. We took her in for a blood test to ensure the pancreatitis was not erupting again. Thankfully, it was not. The vet believes now that she is eating on her own the feeding tube that is in her throat is agitating her as she eats and causing her to vomit. So tomorrow morning Lois Lane goes back in to the vet to get the feeding tube removed - yay! I'll update more tomorrow when she gets home and we see how she's doing. She never reacts well to the anesthetic they use to put her under so I'm sure she'll be loopy for the first day or two home. Then hopefully she can get back to her usual, crazy self.

In other news, Monday morning I head off to San Jose, California for a Search Engine Strategies conference for work. I'm very disappointed that Jason can't come with me as planned, though still excited to see the Silicone Valley and very stoked for this conference. It will not only help me a lot at work but also with my side business. I'm going with a co-worker that used to live in San Jose, which is cool because he knows all the good places to go. Due to the time difference we'll get there fairly early Monday and will have time to drive out to San Francisco and a few other places as well. I'm taking my Nikon D80 and hope to get lots of cool photos!

Lois is on anti-nausea meds and we have to clean out her feeding tube 3 times a day. She's on a very strict specialized diet and we have to be extremely careful that she doesn't get into the other dogs' food or get any people food or it could cause a relapse. We'll have to think of a new feeding schedule to accommodate everyone, but we'll get it worked out. I don't care what it takes - my Lois Pain is home! :D
