Spring Break

Our Spring Break started with Robert. While he was here we had noticed that sugars eye was a little goopy. By the next day her eye had a gray like film on it. We took her to the vet who immediately sent us to an Ocular Emergency Room with her. Long story short, she had eyelashes that were growing into her eyeball. Poor girl had emergency surgery but was home that same night around 11pm. She had a cornea transplant. The things they do now with dogs amazes me. Our baby girl never cried ONE time. The doctors have been telling us over and over that we have the sweetest bulldog they have ever met. She is an easy patient. She got lots of love and I think the surgery to her was worth the extra attention she got all week. It was like a baby waking up every few hours to give her meds. And she couldn't be with our other dog Tippy. So she got lots of one on one time.

We had been thinking about surprising the kids and taking off to Destin for the remainder of the Spring Break or to the Hill Country...but all plans ceased when sugar had surgery. We couldn't leave her so we spent Spring Break at home.

We did crafts. The girls made this cute Easter Egg garland:

My hubby built me a garden out back....

The girls went to a painting class...

And we went to the Sam Houston Museum. My model student, Ellie, wanted to go see it after learning about him in school.

We heated the pool all week so the kids did a lot of swimming.

And we had sleepovers, air soft gun battles, and tent sleeping out back....

We tried to make the week as fun as possible. Frank took off the whole week to spend time with the kiddos so we had lots of family time.
And again...lots of this...

Spring Break 2013 in the books!

Poor Sugar! What awesome parents you are! Jax just had a corneal ulcer/scratch from some weed stuck under his third eyelid. Looks like your little nurses were taking great care of Mr. Suggs.
