It’s been a while since I’ve posted…
Did I lose my desire for writing? No. I think I’ve just been in a rut lately and lost my motivation to upkeep my blog. A lot has happened in the past month or so, but things are finally starting to calm down.
It’s Monday, so I wanted to start the week off with a life update and to get back in the groove of posting again more regularly. Enjoy!
Since October life feels like it’s been nonstop.
I spent three weeks hand making our family costumes- which was well worth it because they turned out fricken adorable!
As you may know, right before Halloween I broke my hand.
A few days after my initial visit at Urgent Care, I met with an orthopedic surgeon who suggested I get surgery to maintain my hands proper biomechanics. Three days after that appointment I had my surgery (which is a post for another day).
The day after my surgery, we headed to Las Vegas for our friends baby shower. When we got home that Monday morning, we noticed a huge lump, about the size of a lemon, on the side of our dogs neck. My husband immediately took her to the vet where they tested the fluid inside. It turned out to be an infection from a puncture wound caused by our other dog. However, this was a blessing in disguise.
While she was there, the vet was concerned about other lumps that she had and suggested getting those tested as well. The results came back and they tested positive for cancer. That Friday she had surgery to remove three tumors. Fingers crossed that everything was removed and she is cancer free.
Everything was so hectic at first. Both the dog and I were healing with another crazy dog and an even crazier baby running around to take care of.
We were running around to multiple doctors appointments every week.
We lived off of crockpot meals for a while.
My dad and stepmom came to visit for Thanksgiving. Being the control freak that I am, I️ decided to make our entire dinner from scratch. It turned out great btw. <<<<<<
esn't stop just because you're injured and being injured just makes life that much more difficult. But I pride myself on perseverance.
This month has been anything but easy, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am almost fully healed and my dog is feeling better.
Who else is ready for the new year?
