That seemed to have worked... this Wonderful Pantry Gathering is beautiful and I totally enjoyed creating it.
But then along came more pressing issues and I haven't been back to create for a couple of weeks.
I've been going to Kelley's Island Every weekend since May, spending much needed time with all my Boater friends at the Casino Docks & friends who have houses on the Island.
He's Learned to Fetch, Sit, Stay, Heal, No Bark, No Bite. Still working on Come & Shake. He's totally house broke & barks to go out.
He had his first vet visit a week ago. He amazed me as well as the vet with his best Behavior...The vet complimented me on how well he was trained for such a young Aussie...then she proceeds to tell me that he's actually only about 3 months old not 4 months like I thought & had only lost one of his razor blade baby teeth.
He weighted in at 25.2 pounds..trippled in size in just 4 weeks. He got his shots & his dog tag...with his appointment to be nuetered on July 24th.
Mama Kitty isn't intimidated by Cody at all but Miss Tasha still wants to be boss over everything including Cody...so he chases her every chance just to show her its pointless. then they both sleep with me as if best of friends.
Puddles is still with me but his health is being stolen by his old age I'm afraid...but he gets lots of lovin from everyone around, storing away all those warm memories for a time that is soon to come.
For the past 13 years I've spent Two really special events on KI, 4th of July and Islandfest, but this year I decided to stay home with my family for the 4th of July. I had a blast but I must admit I did miss everyone on the Island. We had a huge party to Celebrate with tons of great food, games, swimming, camping Fireworks & just plain fun. Hailey & I set up the dining canapy, made camp beds, brought out lanterns, the Mini DVD Player and spent the night listening to the rain drops patter above us while watching a Movie.
Ethan decided to take a little walk with his aunt Tonya and well his Aunt Tonya decided ti was a good Day to let him play in his very first Mud Puddle....OMG...he has the best time....He won't remember it other then this picture but I got that smile and laughing memory tucked tight in my heart to share with him when he get older & this Picture!
That brings me up to date...and the 2nd Holiday, Islandfest this weekend, I won't be spending on the Island this year.
Today I had Sinus Tumor/New Tear Duct Surgery. I did my best to hold off on having the surgery till fall but it took two surgeons who had to work together so they scheduled it because they felt it needed to be done so that there would be no further damage to my right eye. Orginally the surgery was to check the tumor and put in a new Tear Duct that had been damaged by the tumor. As it turned out the Tumor was totally blocking my airway so it was removed. All hope by my primary Dr, my Sleep Apnea Dr, my Eye surgeon, my ENT surgeon and me..this will heal properly, opening up my airway so I can breath better finally & use my breathing machine to help w/ the sleep Apena.
The pain is horrible right now and there's still alot of bleeding but I've got high hopes this all goes well.
A month ago I finally got my nerve Blocks on my lower back & they worked. I've got one test block out of the way on my neck, the 2nd test block on my neck is July 24th & if it to works then it will about a month to six weeks & I will be able to get the real thing done on my neck...I can't wait.
Cody came into my life at just the right time..once I got the lower back blocks I was able to walk for more then a couple minutes.. Now Cody & I walk no less then an Hour total all day. I've lost 13 pounds since my nerve blocks & that has really helped my back....
I have finally been able to start replacing the teeth that have gotten so bad and broken off. So far I've gotten 8 teeth gold & porcline crowned. Now I can move forward and get the Implants in teh front where the two teeth fell off at the roots. I'm not looking forward to another surgery or the long time it takes to finish them once started about a year but in the end they will provide me stationary teeth that can be added to should others beside them break off. So I'm excited to get started.....
My 45th class Reunion was 3 weeks ago and it was great fun seeing all of my old Classmates...
I think that sums up the past few months that I've been missing ..they have been good months..some pain twisted in there but not without rewards...
Thanks for stopping by ....hope you enjoyed catching up on things.
Until we meet again may your days be filled with Sunshine and many Happy Moments!
