Rough Week

This past week has been really hard. I had my ACL replaced on the 17th. I wasn’t too worried because Matt had his done last year and he didn't really have much pain and recovered relatively quickly. I thought I would be the same. boy was I wrong! the first day I was okay, loopy and on lots of drugs, but I was okay. each day after that the pain increased and by Thursday I thought I might shoot myself to get some relief, but I didn’t have to because by Friday it started getting better. On Saturday however our cute dog got really sick so Matt took her to the vet. they took her blood, but didn’t show that anything was wrong. They sent her home with no explanation as to what was wrong and said if she got worse to call. well she did, but we couldn’t get her our of her dog house to take her down. She weighs 80 pds. and Matt didn’t want to hurt her by trying drag her to the car. He said that as soon as she came out he would take her. but she never did. she passed away in her sleep last night. It has been so hard for Matt and for poor little Olivia. Girl is the first thing she says when she wakes up in the morning and the last thing she says before going to sleep. the other night we even caught her saying it in her sleep. she loved her girl. well hopefully next week will be better and my next post will be of a happier tone.

Deb, I'm sorry you lost your beautiful dog. I remember how cute your pics were with your baby and her Girl. Then on top of it you were in physical pain too! How hard. I hope that things get better!

Deb that bums me out so much for you! And for me! I wanted to run the mud run with you so bad. At least you're taking care of yourself. If for some amazing reason you are up to running still (not at all expecting that) let me know. I'll go as slow as you need me to!
