I'm Back, for Better or Worse...

And in this case, for the worse...much worse.

I realize that I've missed blogging and communicating the things that are going on at our house.

Even if those things border on tragic.

Sadie has been battling some eye trouble for the last couple of weeks.

This is a picture of her yesterday.

This is today after having her left eye removed due to glaucoma. It was either lose the eye or put her down.

Sad. Dramatic.

Is it too much to say even a bit traumatic for all of us?

In the end, she will be back to her happy, healthy self in no time and we won't even miss old lefty. Here's to a happy, healthy cyclops.
And to more blogging!
(This picture is from the first day of school 2005. Rachel figured out very quickly that Sadie was a decent substitute for playful brothers...she covered Sadie in kitchen towels and toys that morning.)

Glad to hear from you--and I love your new background!

Oh my goodness!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This makes me sooo sad! Poor little Sadie! I can't even look at the picture, makes me so sad. Hope she has a good recovery. You're such a good doggy mom. :)

P.S. Good to FINALLY see something on here! Miss you guys.

That poor dog. They always look so forlorn with the cone around the neck. Does she seem to be doing better without the bad eye?

I thought about you guys and Sadie all that weekend and tried to catch you during the Leadership meeting. I hope she's doing well. :)
