In all my befuddlement – and excitement about chocolate cookies – last week, I forgot to mention that Mr. Moo had surgery. While my cousin was spending last Friday night glamming it up and looking beautiful in Roaring 20’s garb…
…I was sitting at home soothing a very drugged up pooch, a boy who was not only high on pain meds but was voicing his feelings of confusion and betrayal with constant whining.
He wasn’t the only one who was thrown for a loop on this one. The doctor had pitched the procedure to remove a fast-growing growth like it would be a quick in-and-out operation, not the knock-him-out completely all-day ordeal that it turned out to be.
We both pulled through, thankfully, but I was pretty sure that leaving my buddy at the doctor’s office unexpectedly was going to have me reaching for anxiety meds! A week has now passed since the surgery and the Moo-Meister General has one more week before the next traumatizing visit to the vet, this time to get his sutures removed. That, I’m hoping, will be his last visit for a while. I don’t know if my heart can take it!
This week in 2014 has been pretty uneventful. It’s been a disaster, actually, if we’re talking about how much progress I’m making on my New Year’s
Resolutions, um, goals. However, as I sit here now, pondering my week of non-progress, and look out the window at the landscape, I see that nature has once again given me something to smile about. This week in 2014, I share with you three of our regulars, a mama doe and two of last year’s babies, taking a break in an aesthetically pleasing fashion…
My wish for you, this week in 2014, is no unexpected traumatizing events, no shaved bellies, and nature giving you a lovely little gift that makes you smile, too.
Enjoy the week!
