This will be my last post for awhile until I get my computer and internet hooked up on the island. Yesterday Ron and I drove to Grand Junction to pick up the Penske truck. We also picked up some furniture, bedding and other essentials that we needed. As we were there our real estate agent called and said they she would be bringing by some people to look at the house so I rushed home in the pickup to straighten up a house that is in chaos. Needless to say I was worn out by the time the potential buyers left. Ron decided to take Rainy to the store with him to pick up a few things and when he got home Rainy saw a cat in our yard and took off to chase it up a tree….one of her favorite past times. A few minutes later she came home and the skin had been ripped off her muscles on her left front leg.
We threw her in the pick up and rushed her to vet which was closed because it was well after hours. Fortunately I know Dr. Sorensen well and his practice is attached to his house so I pounded on the door.
He and his daughter that is home on a break from Vet School immediately got to work and when it was all said and done she received 23 staples to close three huge lacerations on her leg.
She was drunk and sore but was so happy to be home.
To say I am overwhelmed would be a huge understatement. I still have so much to do and now I have to keep an ever watchful eye on my baby as I work to keep her quiet and to keep her from trying to rip out the staples.
I spent the night with her sleeping on the floor to be there with her through the long night.
I hope the next post I share is one of great news and fun photos. In the meantime Eileen is coming over to help me watch my mother, watch Rainy and to help me pack and finally another set of muscles to load up the truck.
As soon as I am online once again I will update you on the grand adventure of my little family.
Prayers are needed and welcomed.
