How does a wooden cupcake, a door knob, and an ant bed fit into these pictures?
Its really quite simple--or not!
We now know they lead an emergency room visit.
Yesterday, being Friday the 13th, proved to be a unlucky day for someone.
Our little guy was playing with his wooden cupcakes, and dropped one onto Chris' foot. She hemmed, and hawed about going to the doctor. Is it broken or is it just a bump? Does the black and blue mean it is really broken or, again, just a bump? Chris said she was fine, and went about the day.
Chris always works with the pups in the backyard with our homemade agility equipment. (In the pictures above CoCo is having her try on the jumps). OK, well, let me set this up right.
Chris was working with CoCo, being so little we don't push her. She was standing next to a jump and CoCo was in line ready to jump. She was ready to deliver a treat to CoCo. That is when it all went south. Seems Chris was standing near a ant bed, and they decided to feast on her foot. Yep, she was being bitten by several ants. She tried to swat them off her feet, and twisted her knee. Reeling from the pain, she hit her head on the door knob on the way into the house. The deciding factor to rush to the hospital was the shiney swollen foot. She was complaining her foot was on FIRE!! After a four hour hospital visit, we know nothing except she is in pain, and she did get bitten by several ants. The X-rays are still pending due to all of the swelling inside of both her foot and knee. She was having an allergic reaction to the ant bites. Can you say crutches, a walking shoe, knee brace, and a SHOT! You can guess where! She can breath with extreme caution, until Monday when the doctor is supposed to call to confirm the extent of the injuries.
Tim may have wrote this whole long thing about this horrible day, but let me tell you, I'm ready to go hike the foothills! But....Tim won't let me!
In our home, we celebrate Easter, and of course we decorate some eggs.
We also do something called, "Floor Time." It's nothing more than teaching, and playing with your children on the floor. Last year, my daughter filmed the pups while we were getting ready to color eggs during floor time. Look at how little Brando is! The star pup in the video, is her Biewer Yorkie, James Cagney. From our home to yours, we wish you the very best!
