Yesterday I had the opportunity to walk the hounds and it was great. Beautiful day...Daisy and Millie are still recovering from surgeries a few months prior, but are doing great. Well, today after church it was too beautiful to not go on another walk, so we went. Halfway down the road I noticed Daisy was really struggling. Since she had that massive lipoma removed from her arm/chest she limps horribly. The vet said she would most likely have massive arthritis after the surgery, and she does. It broke my heart, but I had to bring her back home and continue the walk without her. I hate to see them get old! But on the same token, so grateful I have been able to see them get old! My sweet Sadie is having a rough time too...it sounds like she is getting water in her lungs. I have thought for awhile now she has congestive heart failure..I know she is 11 1/2 almost and it happens when they are old, but it breaks my heart! We really don't want to take her to the vet at this point, since they want to run 100's of tests...we just want them to enjoy the time they do have left. Millie and Daisy turn 11 next month and the vet figured Dusty was older than 11 when he had surgery last February, but we can't be sure. It has been so fun having them all close to the same age, but I am terrified of what lies ahead...I just have to try so hard and focus on living for today and not worrying about tomorrow. Easier said than done! I hope all is well with everyone!
I am finally a stay at home Mom. Luke and I have been married 12 years now and we were blessed with little Gracie on July 22, 2007. My dream has always been to stay at home and raise my little Gracie and now I can. I love our dogs Sadie, Dusty, Millie, Daisy and Peanut. They are so much fun. Luke is working at Vulcraft as a lead rigger and is a great Dad. I feel like I am the luckiest woman in the world!
