This poor dog.
She is still pretty sore from yesterday's surgery, but generally I think she is on the upswing. However, she has to wear this cone so that she doesn't disturb her stitches and she HATES it. That is an understatement, to say the least. Look at the way she just hangs her head when she's wearing it. That look KILLS me. :(
If we are sitting with her, and can watch her, we'll take it off just to give her a break. Her spirits lift immediately. :)
Dave was under the weather last night, but is feeling much better today. Unfortunately, I've been feeling pretty crummy today. Between being up at night with sick kids and a recovering dog, as well as not sleeping well because of this cold that I have, I was worn out. So Dave watched the kids. I took some medicine, went to bed this afternoon, and slept soundly for two and a half hours. When I woke up, I was so out of it that I thought it was morning. And the thing is, I bet you anything that I would still be able to sleep tonight.
Poor Caroline. I think that she might be coming down with the stomach flu. She asked for me to put a bucket by her bed tonight. I stayed in her room with her for a while, and she was able to fall asleep. However, I'm a little anxious about what lays in store for us tonight. :(
On a lighter note :)...Evan has a little Christmas serenade for you. He sings this song, Santa Claus is coming to town ALL THE TIME. He seems to take after his Grandpa Orton in that he loves to sing...
