Starting to feel normal again.  What is it about general anesthesia that just kicks your butt?  Well, stitches in the gum and roof of the mouth don't exactly make you feel pretty either.  But, much better day today.  Can begin to eat regular food again, just very small bites.

Our nephew James texted me this evening.  His wife's water broke, so they are now at the hospital with baby number five on her way.  Zuzu Phillips should be arriving around midnight tonight.

This week is Hook's first anniversary with us.  A year ago, his ribs were showing, he was sick with all sorts of infections and heart worms.  Today he weighs about 80 or 90 pounds, all muscle and happy as can be.  Who knew we would have a collie, a yorkie and a bulldog?

Ready for a cup of hot tea and bed.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams


  1. Keep healing well. A new family member with such a sweet name too. Hugs.

  2. You are finally beginning to be glad your surgery is over. It takes time. A new baby makes for a happy family.

  3. You'll be back to normal in no time.
    Wow, baby #5, congratulations on the new family member. I bet you'll be decorating cookies with Him before you know it.
    Hugs, Julia
