Day by Day

Me and my Sam

What could have been a very difficult and stressful week ended up not too badly in the end. Todd's dad has been with us since last weekend. He had to start on chemotherapy for his prostate cancer that has metastasized to his bones. Fortunately, he tolerated his first dose very well and his pain is under much better control than it was last weekend.

Todd's brother Brad was also here for a good part of the week but has since returned to the mountains and will soon be on his way out to Montana for the summer. I enjoy having Roger and Brad here. We all get along well and they are easy house guests.

Guess who thought the new guest bed was especially for her? Miss Squeek!

This has also given us the opportunity to furnish our much talked-about guest room (aka Todd's office). I wish we had more space! But we are making do well with what we have for now. We got a really great twin bed and all the accouterments for a comfy stay.

As for me, my problems seem really minor right now but since this is my blog I will say that my leg is finally doing a tiny bit better. I think the numbness has improved in the last day. My doctor told me to be patient; my chiropractor told me to be patient; and my inner yogi told me to be patient. But it wasn't until today that things seemed at all better. I have modified my exercise and tried to be very mindful of anything that was uncomfortable. I hope this is a sign of good things to come.

Doc is handsome as ever. :)

Probably the most exciting thing that happened this week was getting the dogs groomed for the first time. Oh my gosh they look so incredibly cute, adorable and handsome!! We wanted our Sam to be cooler for the summer, and I thought that if I didn't take Doc too, he would look like a raggamuffin. They both look so so so good.

There is probably more to tell, but I can't remember right now. Life is intense; life is awesome; life is ever-changing. Happy to be here for it. Glad you joined me for the ride.


  1. I'll bet your boys look (and smell) great after their day of beauty. Love animal photos! <3

  2. Sammy, Doc and Squeaky look way too cute!! What a great family unit you guys have. Goldens are so beautiful.

    I'm not up on your leg, but I see it's almost back to glad to hear that.

    Sorry though about your father in law! I hope the treatments go really well for him and recovers as he should.
