Furry daughter (aka Daisy dog) is feeling under the weather. She had surgery on Wednesday for the removal of bladder stones. Xrays revealed that she had 3 of them, and they had to go. The vet sent one home with me, and I couldn't believe the size of it- and it was the small one. I'm not sure what to do with the stone she sent home with me- maybe Daisy should put it under her pillow so she can get a buck from the Bladder Stone Fairy?? (distant "black sheep" relative of the Tooth Fairy, I guess.) She is feeling pretty miserable. Some of you may remember she had a platelet disorder back in the fall and almost died. So it has been a rough year for her. She is 10 1/2- I am starting to wish they had Medicare for dogs. Because the vet bills are killing me.
She likes to put herself in her kennel for a little retreat.
Youngest daughter spent the day yesterday making an apron of her own design- such a talented little cookie (she looks a little angry in the photo- I think it's just her seriously-mom-can-we-get-this-over-with face). This morning she left for Pittsburgh for a practice meet for her Bible Quiz Team and will return tomorrow night. Yep, the nest is empty more and more these days. Hubby and I will go to a graduation party tomorrow. Tonight we will stay home, rent a movie, and babysit the ailing dog. Romance, people, this is real romance. Certainly real life. And you know, it's all good.
Have a great weekend.
