Let’s see, where should I start? I guess with last weekend. We spent a total of four days in Olympia selling all ten of our puppies! We sold the last three boys on Sunday afternoon fairly quickly.
Tuesday morning I scrambled to get Timothy in to see Dr. McCurry. More about this later.
Tuesday after violin lessons we nearly ran over a lone duckling. He obviously was separated from his mommy. Before I knew it, Lydia was out of the van and back in with this little guy in her lap. Then, off to the farm store we went to get the necessary supplies for his care.
After much research on how best to care for him, and an encouraging hand feeding routine, he suddenly passed away over night on Thursday night.
On Thursday and Friday, Lydia and I were in Seaside having a wonderful time.
Saturday night as Daddy and the kids were returning home after some errands, Anna ran out to greet them, and was struck by Daddy’s one ton truck. They said they heard quite a few thuds and lots of squealing and crying. Anna limped home. We spent the rest of the evening assessing her condition, and prayed a lot. After speaking with an on-call veterinarian, we decided that her injuries didn’t appear to be life threatening. We chose to wait to take her into a closer veterinarian office on Sunday morning.
Ted dropped Kyle, Lydia, Caroline and Victoria off at church while he and Valerie took Anna to the vet. We were so blessed to hear that after a thorough exam, the vet didn’t think she had any broken bones. We are all praising the Lord for this apparent miracle!
Timothy and Joseph and I stayed home from church, as Timothy and I have struggled quite severely with allergies this week. I took Timothy to Dr. McCurry on Tuesday morning, as his eyes looked like he had pink eye. He has also been so stuffed up that he cannot breathe well at night. Dr. McCurry thought that he did have an infection in his nose, and possibly pink eye. So we have been medicating him all week. My eyes also seemed like they could be showing pink eye symptoms, so we decided not to spread it around at church.
Sunday afternoon we got a call from a realtor wanting to show our house tomorrow (Tuesday). So the rest of Sunday and all day today we have been deep cleaning. We invited Zachary and Grace over to help us and they were a big help.
Oh, and in the midst of our craziness today, both of the last two puppy owners came to pick up their puppies! So we are completely finished with our first litter of ten healthy labrador puppies! Thank you Lord!
We leave in the morning for Tillamook for our week of camping. So it has been a very busy day of cleaning and packing. Still more work to do early in the morning, so I better get to bed!
