Half the year is almost gone now. So much has happened so far this year. I will be happy to just relax and enjoy the rest of the year. Where to begin?

January- we got another puppy, Darby. She is a mini Schnauzer and weighed 2.2 lbs. when we got her. Seven weeks old and the cutest puppy ever! Finished up my physical therapy on my knee replacement and went back to work. Working 3 days a week, 4 hours a day for now.

February- I was having trouble with GERD and ended up having a barium swallow to see if all was OK. Everything was OK. I was one of the hostesses for our DAR meeting this month. Darby got her 1st grooming and puppy cut. 

March- The CAR went to the Austin Nature and Science Center for a field trip this month. Was lots of fun. Mike had "stabbing" chest pains; trip to ER at Heart Hospital of Austin. Nothing fatal that day, but recommended follow up with cardiologist (April 18th). Austin Bomber blew himself up in front of our vet's office. Darby was supposed to go to vet that day, but I called and cancelled because Mike went to the ER. Went to Houston to visit Kelly's grave. She would have  turned 25 years old. Took Darby to the Bark Park; she loves going there!

April- Brakes on the Blazer are going out and need to be replaced. Mike is working on them. Daddy fell twice in one day and ended up in the hospital for several days. So hard being here when things like that happen. Hail storm damaged my new truck's roof and hood. This the day that Mike changed insurance companies! Figures. Went to the cardiologist. Said on paper Mike is very low risk of heart attacks due to him being a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, doesn't drink. Decided to do 2 tests to be sure nothing out of ordinary- scheduled for early May. Heather turned one this month! I painted a toy box for her. Sweet, sweet girl!

May- Mike did the testing for heart. Stress test with contrast and CT scan of heart. Results abnormal. Cardiologist appt and they want to do an angiogram on the 17th. When done, they decided that stents wouldn't work for him and recommended by-pass surgery. The quadruple bypass was done on the 22nd and he stayed in the hospital until the 28th. Michael came up to the hospital and sat with me while Mike was in surgery. I had never been so happy to see someone I knew! Took Darby to new groomer here in town. She did a fantastic job and Darby looks so cute. Worked a car show that my work was sponsoring and gave away "freebies" to the people that were there. 

June- Family reunion in Tennessee! I can't wait to see everyone.

So that brings you up to date on us. Still hanging in there and still kicking. 

Hope this finds you doing well!
