And the hits keep coming...

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a lovely holiday last week :)
Just wanted to do a quick post to why I have been pretty much MIA...

Apart from the holiday festivities/family time taking up most of my week, we had a few more "scares". Doesn't it just seem like bad things always happen in multiples? I swear, I thought we were past it after the health issues earlier this month, but looks like we had more in store.

After a snow storm occured, and then it warmed up and the snow melted, we discovered a huge issue with our house (joys of owing an old home ;) and water was practically pouring in through the second floor bay window. Total nightmare, which we are still in the process of getting fixed through the insurance co.

Then, the worst day ever happened. Just a typical Saturday...and the weather was actually nice, so we took Deedee to the park, like we have so many times before. But this time was different...as soon as we got in, a huge dog came barrelling at her (to play - not in an attacking way) and completely pumpled her. She screamed so loud, it broke my heart. Aaron and I rushed over so fast, but I knew something was wrong...she wouldn't stop crying.

We immediately went to the vet hospital and it turns out she has a broken ankle. Bigger problem - the fracture is into her growth plate. She got a cast put on for Saturday and Sunday, but had to go back and sleep over Sunday night to see the orthopedic surgeon for a consult and CT scan this morning - and about an hour ago it was determined she needs surgery to have a pin put in.

This whole thing has been so upsetting because she has been so scared. I hated not having her home last night - Aaron and I didn't know what to do without her, and now she will be gone even longer because of the surgery. I probably have an ulcer now from how sick I've been over it.

Prayers for my little fur baby for fast healing and that she will be home very soon! <3 <3 <3

  5. I am SO sorry for you! There is nothing worse than having your pet hurting. Two years ago Jamo was attacked by another dog. He had his face all bit up, and it ended up getting infected. He had to have surgery and had a tube running through the side of his face to drain the abscess. It was awful, remembering it makes me totally empathize with you. Prays to you and your doggy!
