Playing Nurse

Well I'm not going to lie, it wasn't a wonderful weekend.  It started off well when Molly Anne and I got Mills up and walking around 4:45pm on Friday for the first time since his surgery on Thursday morning.  I don't know if I've ever been so happy for him to get up and walk!  I was SO relieved.  He hung out outside with us for a little bit on Friday afternoon then we got him back in to rest.  He needed that outside time.  Nurse Molly Anne fed him his dinner pebble by pebble!

Friday night Mills and I slept in the guest room so he could be on the carpet and get up easier if he needed to.  He was so much better than he was on Thursday night so I finally slept which was a good thing.  

Saturday morning we hung around the house and didn't do much which is basically the theme of the weekend.  

Saturday afternoon we unwrapped his bandage and he started licking the wound right away.  Well I ran to get a cone from Petsmart and all was good, we thought it was working.  So we finally left the house for the first time and went to dinner.  We tried a new restaurant at Waverly called Taziki's and it was tasty!  Kevin's parents were with us so we went for a special treat of ice cream afterwards!  Molly Anne was excited!



Saturday night Mills was up a lot again and was fighting with the cone.  I still thought it was working.  Well we were all dressed and ready for church and this dog was reaching his wound even with the cone on.  I felt so defeated and SO OVER the whole thing!  Yall, it's been a rough 2.5 weeks with Mills and his injury!  We ended up not making it to church because we couldn't leave him licking it.  Molly Anne and I jetted to Petsmart and got him the even bigger size.  She liked checking out all of the fish while we were there!

(Mr. I know I'm not supposed to be on furniture)

So yeah, Molly Anne gave Mills his "blue hat" and yes, this one works.

You know who has also been wearing it when Mills has been supervised!

We tried to grill out last night but we had a storm come through that lasted forever so I just cooked everything inside.  It wasn't as good but still a tasty summer meal - burger, heirloom tomato slices, corn and roasted zucchini and okra!  

Hope everyone had a good weekend!  I'm going on a little trip out west this week!

Poor sweet Mills. Poor YOU GUYS! It's so tough when they don't feel good - hope everything settles down soon.
