Kelly, I so enjoyed your entire post! I do love hearing about sweet Georgia, and all her "moods". She is a lovely, funny, girl. I can't wait to see the video and pictures of her actually playing fetch for the first time in a year. I would have had tears of joy as well if I were in your shoes. ♥
You have certainly had a long and trying summer. I think it's so sweet how much Georgia loves your Mum. Georgia will probably protest the change of going home, but I'm sure will settle back into things easily and quickly. Poor girl with the eye infection....dear oh dear! I'm glad that has cleared up nicely.
I too am looking forward to seeing your artwork of Georgia. I still need to check and see if the DNA kit has arrived. It hadn't at last check.
The best news of all is your Mum's recovery. For you, I'm sure it's comforting to know that the nurses will still be coming by so someone will be checking on her frequently and there to give a hand if needed. She has made an excellent recovery, and the fact that she is now bathing and able to drive is a milestone and a good indication that she is well on her way.
You are a terrific daughter!
Thanks for the update. It's wonderful to hear the happy news.
Irene, how is Jack managing with this extremely hot summer?
I'm so pleasantly surprised at how well Oliver is doing. He was actually playing like a puppy over the past couple of days. We've had a bit of a change in our household as well. I am quite "single" after 11 years, by my choice. Fortunately Oliver and Henry seem to be rolling with it rather well, which is a load off. Normally Oliver would pine terribly if his "Dad" left the house even for a few hours. Oliver seemed more concerned with my whereabouts after my trip out west in June, so when the change started to occur in early July, Oliver was just happy that I returned. Henry also frets when all of his "humans" aren't at home, but he too seems to be fine with it.
Many items still have to be removed from my home, mostly clothing and stuff in the garage (that has been there for 10 years). I'm going to be purchasing a new bed soon, and going from a King back to a Queen. By doing this, I'll have room for "steps" for Oliver without me tripping over them. It's been an interesting year.
I also recently had a birthday, and an impromptu Birthday party at my house, that wasn't planned at all. One of my friends brought over his JRT, "Little Man" whom Henry adores so the two of them played for hours. Oliver wanted none of their shenanigans, but the house was SO happy, loud and full of merriment. We're all older now, so the whole event was over by midnight but my sons, my dogs and me all had a wonderful time.
