Trip and News

Mom and Dad had a great trip over the Labor Day weekend

It was a scenic drive through the Salmon Challis Forest

Most of the drive was along the river

Who does this look like??

Yep! It is Brutus, Hazel's brother

Every day there was company in daughter's front yard

The deer were pretty tame

We are happy to have them back home.

Now for some other news

Mom is having eye surgery today 
It was discovered she had a macular hole in her right eye.
The doctor will repair the hole and then Mom has to spend at least a week face down. We have rented a special chair (similar to a massage chair) to help her with this. Although we might not have any posts up for a bit, we should be able to visit you all in a day or two.

  12. HI to Brutus - he looks very happy to see your Dad.

    We are sorry to hear your Mom has to have that eye surgery. Our Dad had a detached retina and they put a "bubble" in his eye - he too had to stay face down 24/7 for a week - no fun AT ALL!!!!!!! All paws crossed for your sweet Mom and lots of prayers.

  13. Looks like a gorgeous place to visit. We've never heard of a macula for staying face down, that seems difficult. However, we think a couple of pugs walking on her back might be a good massage....just sayin'
