Pupdate: T-Bone Surgery

Well, my boy had surgery!  I took him to Athens, GA on Monday, April 10th for his consultation.  They went over the procedure and all that good stuff.  He was to have a CT scan that afternoon to get a better look at the ear canal and make sure that there was nothing else going on in the ear.  I kissed my boy goodbye and headed back home.

Side note - I held it together while I was in the office, but totally lost it when I got in the car.  😭😭

On Monday evening, the vet called to say the scan looked clear other than the mass in his canal...which was fantastic news.  He would go into surgery the next afternoon.

Tuesday - They called in the morning to say he did good overnight and was fasting to prepare for surgery.  Apparently, he was a bit grumpy and didn't like being in a kennel, so he was being vocal...so that got him a few extra walks! LOL  They called again when he was taken back and my nerves went crazy.  We waited, and waited, and waited some more to hear how it all went.  Ha…

Girls Trip

I've been meaning to brag blog about my most recent Las Vegas trip!  Me and 3 of my dearest girlfriends had a girls trip - no boys allowed (except for at Magic Mike, of course...lol).

We had a busy schedule of events...and we thought we were still much younger than we are ;)

Here's a quick snapshot of our events:






That's about all I can share - What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas!!!
It was so much fun to get away - just the girls.  We have a couple nights away here and there, but this was the first time we flew somewhere and spent 4 days away.  I'm so lucky to have such awesome friends that can and want to travel.  Counting down the days until we do it again!!

AND...CF doesn't stop when you travel...Cayston came along for the Vegas fun too!! I didn't bring my vest but had my Aerobika on hand.
I think my lungs have finally recovered from all the cigarette smoke in Vegas.  I know it's not the ideal place for a person with CF, but you got to live a little!  I…

Pupdate

Just another quick pupdate.  T-Bone's appointment on the 27th was postponed (I was going on a trip and wanted to be sure I would be home to take care of him).  We were going to go this Wednesday, but with all the crazy weather going on down this way, I postponed again until Monday (4/10).
So, we will venture to Athens, GA on Monday and see what they have to say about surgery.  Send my sweet boy well wishes, happy thoughts, prayers, good vibes, or whatever you want :)






Making Progress

It seems like I start later and later each year with fundraising for Great Strides.  Why do I procrastinate?!

I'm happy to report that we are just under a month away from our walk in Augusta, GA (May 6th).  So far, we are at $7,500!!!  I'd love to beat our total from last year ($13,375)...I think we can do it!!
