Bosco is coming home today! :-)

Thank you all for your comments and thoughts for Bosco yesterday. :-)

The surgery went well. The Dr. said Bosco’s ear was actually a lot worse than he thought it was and the surgery absolutely had to be done. He said due to this, the risk for infection is a lot higher. He won’t have any hearing in his left ear but will be able to sense vibrations. Bosco had to stay there last night and was on morphine for pain.

The Dr. just called a few mins. ago and said Bosco ate for them and seemed comfortable so they feel comfortable sending him home later today. (Bosco will not be happy to find out he will also be leaving with a cone that he will need to wear for 2 weeks.)

I am just so glad we took him to the Dr. yesterday so that he can start to feel better. Bosco has always had ear infections (I don’t think he ever went longer than a month without one), but this time was much different. He started to scream if we even walked by his left ear .. sometimes from 2 feet away .. because he was scared that we were going to bump into it or touch it. He screamed when the Dr. just lifted his ear to look at it yesterday. It was so sad.

Thank you all again for thinking of Bosco. :-)

Please keep Bosco in your thoughts today

Please keep Bosco in your thoughts today .. he is going to have a serious surgery later today to remove his ear canal.   He has had a chronic ear infection that has calcified his ear canal, which has prevented any fluid / wax from getting out as well as not allowing the medicine to get into his ear. The Dr. told us surgery is the only option to treat him at this point, and without treatment, the infection could spread to his brain or even cause meningitis.

Some randomness for your Thursday

Hey guys!

Long time no talk, huh? I really can’t say I have all that much to share with you – life has pretty much been the same old, same old. I still just wanted to pop in and say hi though! :-)

I shared this picture of Bosco on Instagram the other day.  Isn’t he the cutest?!

I ordered this everything bagel spice last week and have used it on eggs, veggies, and salad so far .. it has already become one of my favorite spices EVER. SO delicious!!

I can’t wait to try it on shrimp and chicken!

Last weekend I made some cake batter bars.

These have been my go to dessert to bake for the last year or so. If you have never made them, you need to change that immediately. Trust me.

One day last week I got pulled over for talking on my cell phone. I know I shouldn’t have been on it and I really don’t talk on it too often when I drive. The cop informed me that talking on a cell phone while driving results in a ticket of $200 – $400 and a mandatory court appearance. (yikes!!!) The cop thankfully did not give me a ticket for this, but instead gave me one for an obstructed view (for a car air freshener that I had hanging). He obviously did it to let me off easy (the ticket resulted in a fine of $56 and no court appearance needed), but I was still really upset that I got pulled over at all. Oh well, live and learn. I can say that I haven’t talked on my phone while driving since! :-)

The next day my sister thought it would be funny to post this on my Facebook wall.

I, however, did not find it to be all that funny at the time. :-)

 

And just for laughs ..

Throwback Thursday ~ Take 2

Hey guys!

How’s it going? I mentioned that Pat and I have been helping my mom clean out her house in order to put it on the market soon. Last weekend we spent most of Saturday there and we got so much done. Although I didn’t go to the gym at all last weekend, I most certainly got a workout in – walking up and down flights of stairs all day long is no joke! I spent lots of time looking through old pictures again and thought I would share more of them with you lovely folks. :-)
