Charlie’s Recovery – 23 Days Post-Op 12

Hello, Friends!  I had wanted to post yesterday, but I was kind of in a shitty mood, and so I thought it was a smart idea not to get on the blog and start rambling away about how life sucks sometimes.  Moving along, today is a new day.  My second last day off before I go back on Friday… for a day! LOL!  Then off again Monday and Tuesday and finally back to work next Wednesday.  It’s a lot of fun with the dogs (all five, yes 5), there’s never a dull moment that’s for sure. If you missed reading […]

Charlie’s Post-Op Recovery – Day 16 11

Today we are now 16 days post-op for Charlie and he’s doing fabulous.  He honestly feels like he could probably run a marathon, I’m sure (my opinion as a crazy pet-parent).  He’s got spunk and this renewed energy.  But, so far he’s listening to his limits i.e. Mommy yelling.  He now has his stitches out (yesterday) and he’s very happy about that.  He spent one more night in the cone and this morning, he is cone-FREE.  Pet parents reading know that this is such a triumphant moment.  Cone-wearing is always such a shitty thing, for both the dog and the […]


What’s Up Monday / Weekend Recap / Charlie Recovery Update 17

So what fun did y’all get up to this past weekend?  We had some mediocre, summer weather this past along with a lot of relaxation, cleaning, packing, seeing Jeff’s Mom in rehab, seeing old friends Saturday, good eats, good company and of course, time with the boys.  In a nutshell, of course.  (Meanwhile, I just went on a run-on sentence there, there was nothing brief or nutshell about it – lol) Jeff went up late Thursday night to his parents, which was basically only a place to rest his head, so he could go out on Friday morning, up to […]

Thursday Thoughts & #ThrowbackThursday 4

It’s Thursday today, but it doesn’t feel like a Thursday because we had a statutory holiday yesterday (Canada Day) and so today, it feels like it should be the beginning of a work week but alas, thank god it is not.  Only today and tomorrow until the glorious weekend.  I live for weekends, don’t you kids?  Yesterday, we didn’t end up visiting Jeff’s Mom in the rehab facility.  She was placed in isolation due to being sick so hopefully she’ll be feeling a bit better come the weekend and we can perhaps visit her on Saturday or Sunday afternoon.  Instead, […]
