52 Weeks of Happiness: Week 3

June 7, 2011

This week I am so happy and grateful for our health. Thomas and I have both been sick with a terrible chest cold. Thomas is back to his good ol’ self and I am definitely on the mend.

Another important family member was injured this week. Our dog Teddy was attacked by the dog across the street. I took him into the vet as soon as it happened and am so glad I did. He ended up needed surgery right away. He had to have a skin and muscle graft as well as 30+ stitches… a lot for an 11 pound pup!! The vet was really concerned that the grafts wouldn’t take and he would need more surgery but everything looks to be healing really nicely!! He has really come around the last two days, up and walking, eating and wanting to hang out.

This is an old photo of Teddy. Right now he has a naked (and very nasty) looking bum.


It’s interesting how you can go from a healthy house to 3 family members feeling under the weather overnight. I am so grateful that we are all on the mend and happy that we are almost back to normal, whatever that means 🙂 !!




  1. Your poor puppy!!!! I’m glad everyone is feeling better!

  2. It’s the worst when our kids are sick. So glad you’re all on the mend!

    Would love it, if you’re interested to join in on my Friday – A Family Lives Here posts. Here’s what it’s about. Here’s are some current posts.
    We post every Friday! Cheers!

  3. How’s Teddy? That is horrible. I hope the neighbor footing the bill and their dog is having a very long snooze?!? Glad you’r all feeling better. G wants to go golfing again soon with Brad…he had a great time last time. C
