I'll do more extensive posts once I have pictures, but this weekend was a bit crazy, so I'll do the quick version. My parents arrived on Thursday...just in time for Chris and I to leave for an infant care class. It was great to have them around, though, because there was a LOT of prep work to get done before my shower on Saturday. Fortunately, I don't work on Fridays, so we were able to shop, and clean, and generally exhaust ourselves.
Saturday was more exciting, for both obvious and not so obvious reasons. As we were getting ready for the 1 pm shower, Chris took Harper for a walk to try and burn some energy. Shortly after leaving, he came running back in with a poop-bag full of blood. He immediately took off for the emergency vet hospital, both because it was 8:30 am, our vet was closed this Saturday, and it seemed like an emergency. I initially stayed home, but by 10:30 was worked up enough that I had my dad drop me off to hang out in the waiting room with a panicked Chris. Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, we didn't learn anything new. We just spent over $700 for more blood work, and x-rays, and medicines. We also are heading to our vet this afternoon for a follow up. My mother said, "At some point you're going to have to decide when this is too much", but my response could only be, "Well, I don't want that day to be today." We made it back to the house around 12:30 pm and RAN to change as people were already arriving.
The shower was great, and I'll have a longer post on that. My parents and Chris's mom stayed over night, and my brother and sister-in-law (and Brutus the dog) stayed through dinner, so it was nice to catch up with all of them. Sunday...we did a little cleaning, a little shopping, but generally just passed out from too much excitement.
So, there's the quick run-down. Hope ya'll had a good one!
