Brighten this day right up

Wow. Thank you SO much for all of the love and support regarding our baby, Sienna. It means so much!!!

Between dealing with extremely cranky, disobedient kids on the hottest day of the entire year, getting an anxious night's sleep worrying about Sienna, breaking my third camera by dropping it again, and our electricity going out...it has not been the greatest of days.

BUT.

I do have some fantastic news! Sienna has been discharged from the hospital three days earlier than expected. The surgery went very well, and they still have high expectations that she will return to normal with a few week recovery.

It is still pretty sad because her entire back is shaved, she has a 6 inch incision, and her hind legs are still dragging behind her (this will be normal for awhile...but such a terribly sad sight nonetheless). Poor thing is just so frustrated that she can't walk and play with her brother. :( We can only hope and pray for a quick recovery!!!

On another happy note, I'd like to end by sharing some photos from our very happy Independence Day weekend (prior to the Sienna-incident of course). Two dear friends got engaged...and we were able to be there for it. So fun!!!

Hope you all had a great weekend.

I am so happy to hear that Sienna is doing well. I would have definitely spent the money on our baby too! Enjoyed the photos!

AHHH. I just caught up on blog reading from the long weekend. Poooor Sienna! I'm glad she's doing better, and hopefully you've recovered too, Mom.

When we first got Roscoe, we had to have emergency surgery to have some of his teeth extracted. (They were out of place and infected from being abused by his previous owners, those TERRIBLE people). My jaw dropped when I heard how much it would cost us; but we felt the same way! He was a healthy dog and we weren't going to allow him to suffer! Pets are like kids!
