Hi everyone. Happy weekend to you.
I almost didn't post today, but luckily I had this post basically finished in advance and I figured it would be worth posting to keep my mind busy. Yesterday my hubby took the day off. We went out in the boat and took the dogs with us. The current was really strong when we returned to the dock to pull out the boat at the end of the day. Miss Maddie started to jump out of the boat when she thought we were up against the dock. Her front paws landed on the dock, but just then the boat jerked away from the dock, and she went down into the water.
In this process her belly slammed into the dock. She's a tough cookie, and she swam to shore. But she wasn't quite right. We took her to the emergency vet and discovered she had received a slight tear in her bladder and some water went into her lungs.
Luckily the tear is small and should heal without surgery, but she is being sedated and will be in the emergency room "doggy" hospital for several days. If you could keep your fingers crossed that everything continues to heal as expected, that would be much appreciated. 🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞
We spent the whole evening and until almost midnight at the emergency vet and left waiting for more information. The middle of the night phone call luckily came with good news, as did this first thing this morning phone call, and I am relieved. But I will be happier after a couple of more positive phone calls.
OK, onto the post I had already written.
This month Elle' challenge at Art Journal Journey is Books, Cats and Tea. For my second look let me share a couple of book themed pages I made in January of 2017 when the theme at AJJ was Every Journal Page Tells a Story.
