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.
