Why I haven’t posted in a few weeks


Things of been very hectic around my household the last few weeks.

First, my fears about Peterbilt’s injury were confirmed (see Golden Showers post https://houseoffarts.wordpress.com/2013/12/02/golden-showers/ )

Peterbilt was confirmed by the vet that his ACL in his right leg has torn and that surgery was inevitable. Yay! Just how I wanted to spend $3,000! Not on a vacation or anything to escape the -50 windchill…

The picture I just took of him is of him sleeping on our bed, not knowing that this is the last time he’ll be able to jump up on furniture for several weeks.

His surgery is tomorrow. Prayers please!

Also, after a series of falls on New Year’s Eve, I’ve had to put my Dad into a nursing home.

I haven’t gotten much into my parents with this blog, but my dad has had Parkinson’s for about 10 years now. His disease has progressed to the point where he can no longer be safe home alone. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. I’ll spare you the gut wrenching details but this is situation is still ongoing. My husband has been my rock through this whole ordeal and even the Bulldogs have pitched in to help by not whizzing in the house or eating any shoes in the last 2 weeks. Hey, I’ll take anything I can get at this point.

So, it may be a few more weeks before able to get back to the blog.

Happy New Year everyone and stay warm.

  1. I’m sorry to hear about your dad, Sarah. And your dog. 😦

    Sure not a good holiday. Hang in there and prayers coming. Tell Justin hi. Not that it will make you feel better but we hit minus 7 here in KY this week. The last below zero temps were in ’96 and we went backpacking at minus 19. Hard to imagine doing that now. Hope the pup gets better quickly.

    • Thank you for the prayers, Paul. Yes, this was also our coldest weather since 1996. The force is strong with Peterbilt. God may have given him tendons with the strength of over-cooked spaghetti noodles but you cannot break his spirit. Stay warm down there!
