Our Weekend

Not too much went on this weekend. It was, for the most part, a normal weekend. Friday, a girlfriend of mine came down our way (she lives about 45 minutes away) and Chris, Cassi, and myself went out to dinner and then grabbed a few drinks. It was really nice to be able to get together.
Saturday was a busy day for me. I was pooped! Early morning Jennifer dropped Isabella off for me to watch her for most of the day while she helped Kevin. Saturday was Kevin's big Shoe Show (I'm sure she will be posting about it on her blog soon. Go to Jennifer's Blog on the right side of my page). Anyway, Bella and I hung out for awhile and watched her favorite cartoon, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Later in the morning I had to take Roxi back to the vet. It was not a good appointment. The doctor is growing VERY concerned because she simply won't eat anything. She's still very sick, coughing and sleeping A LOT! The vet kept her for the day to give her fluids and run blood work. Isabella was not happy about this. All she kept saying was Roxi wants to come home and Roxi's sick! :-( After that Bella and I were off to the store. For those of you that don't have kids, it's not easy totting a 2 1/2 around and groceries! But I'm sure you learn to adapt. By 2:30 we were on our way to Cleveland to Kevin's shoe show. I was very impressed and thought Kevin did a terrific job! I've never seen so many sneakers before (not even at a store)! Later that evening Chris and I went to enjoy and nice dinner, just the two of us. After dinner we went to see my parents. Since my dad's surgery we had not seen him. He's doing okay considering....just VERY tired! By 11pm, Chris and I crashed. WHOA, what a long and busy day!

To update you more on Roxi, like I said she stayed at the vet's all day on Saturday. He took blood to check her white blood count. He explained to us that a normal dog should be around 16,000. Roxi is at a whopping 66,000! From that we grew very concerned (not that we weren't before). I asked the ultimate question, "could she die from this"? The doctor said yes! :-( He also is very concerned that if she does pull through this, more then likely she will have permanent damage to her lungs and possible problems the rest of her life. Chris and I have tried everything to get her to eat, but she continues to loose weight everyday. The doctor has given her 3 shots of antibiotics and 2 or 3 things of IV fluids. He also changed the antibiotics for us to administer to her. Please keep Roxi and us in your prayers and pray that our new baby pulls through this!
