New Beginnings

I haven't posted for a few days, the new term began last Wednesday so back to work for me after a pretty hectic holiday time. Preston (the puppy we were caring for) became very poorly again after Christmas. We decided he had a condition that beagle pups are prone to, a form of meningitis. We took him back to the vet and told her our thoughts, she didnt really agree with us but with speaking to other vets we were pretty sure and asked her to treat him for it (Steroid Reactive Meningitis) the only treatment being a high dose of steroids, being weaned down as he improves. Well after 2 jabs and a day of tablets he was back to normal, albeit a little quiet/tired because of the steroids (we werent complaining about that!) Anyway we kept him with us until his check up today and now he has gone to be with his new owners (our youth pastor and his wife) They are going to change vets, there is another one in town who apparently knows about SRM. We were sad to see him go as we had grown quite attached but we knew it was the right thing and he will be coming to stay on occasion.

The twins began pre school this week, just one morning a week to begin with. my daughter didnt really want them to go but on their visit to the Montessori nursery they loved it so much and I am sure she will appreciate the freedom, at least until the new baby arrives

Oh, poor puppy - it's so hard to see them sick and they can't tell you what's going on. The twins are sure cute!

Just a little something from Judy said...

Sorry about your puppy. When they hurt, you hurt.

Your twins are so cute! I am sure their mother will appreciate the little break she gets when they go to preschool. Can't believe they are growing up so fast.

It is always a pleasure to visit your blog.
