I am happy to report that my dog, Max, is doing much better. He had a surgical procedure to install a drain in the lower part of his eye socket on Wednesday morning. They kept him overnight and I brought him home on Thursday. We have to give him antibiotics, pain meds and ointment every day. He is wearing an e-collar (which he hates).
Can you see the drain? It looks like a little coffee straw. That keeps the "goop" from filling in his eye socket and making his eye worse.
Here he is all spread out on the floor yesterday. He looked pitiful but he's actually doing pretty good. He has been playing, and even went on a walk yesterday evening.
The only thing left to recover is his eating. He isn't eating like he normally does. So, I bought him some different food and I'm actually hand feeding it to him. It has been exhausting taking care of him. It's like having a small child in the house again!
Since his eye is draining, I made a special spot on the sofa for him.........towel and all!
Now for the pretty part of this post.............
Remember I was tweaking my glass cabinet in the family room? I wanted to change it up slightly. I decided to just add some crowns and greenery to the mix. I removed the baskets and took out some of the pitchers.
Since this cabinet is on a busy wall with the fireplace and TV, I don't want it too cluttered. That's why I don't get too crazy with it.
I haven't started Fall decorating yet, but I'm happy that it finally feels like Fall today! It feels so good outside now. I plan on taking Max on another walk later on too. He loves his walks!
And speaking of cooler air, we have plans on building a fire pit in our back yard, so we need to get started on it very soon! Our vet bill ran over $900! Gosh, that would've given us a mighty nice fire pit huh?
Oh well, I'll take my dog over a fire pit any day.
Thanks for stopping by.
