The Sunday Post #1

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

What’s been going on?

This week started off with a carry-over from last week. On last Thursday, my husband Craig checked in to the hospital for what was intended to be a 4 hour out patient surgery to repair a torn meniscus. It turned into a great deal more than that!

I started this post earlier and wrote down all the many things that we went through before I finally got him home again. Unfortunately, that got lost between the computer and the tablet! So we’ll just take the shortcut this time.

Before all was said and done, Craig was put on oxygen therapy, discovered he had A-fib and dealt with a bit of pneumonia! Talk about a mess!

On the Brighter side of things:

If you’ve been reading this blog for more than a few months, you know that we recently mourned the passing of our beloved pet. We weren’t sure we needed another dog, but it turned out we needed one. See, Odie was Craig’s Emotional Support Animal and did a great deal to keep his blood pressure down. So we needed another dog that could do the same thing for him.

A neighbor of ours had a small Shih Tzu/Pekinese mix dog that was about 5 years old that he had offered us. We contacted him on Thursday and brought Coco home with us!


She is just the sweetest little girl. We need to take care of a few problems (Fleas and matts) and get her shots for this year. But she is just what we needed!

We discovered that she had been being hand fed, so that is what we are doing. While I’m typing this, she is moving from one chair under the table to another! Expect more cute pictures as we go forward.
