Sunny Days, Chasing the Clouds Away!

Sometimes a walk around the block is all you need to cure your blues... And if you happen to be walking with these two, you can bet you clouds will be chased away!

Penny Lane Update!

Yay!!! The surgery was a success!!! We are so thankful that everything went exactly according to plan. Penny is resting now and drinking some apple juice. She is extremely drowsy and probably will be for the rest of the day. Today will be all about resting and drinking fluids, tomorrow will be a little rough as that's when the real healing begins. Also,  a lot of the inflammation will have gone down so her ear drums are going to finally start vibrating normally (this is the hope!) So along with the healing tomorrow, Penny will be experiencing some really new and LOUD noises. This might be challenging and uncomfortable at first. We are going to try and keep it really quiet around here for a bit. 

She is such a little snuggle bug and that's all she wants to do right now, so I'm going to get back to doing that! Here are a couple pics we snapped before and just a bit ago...

"Hear" We Go!

We just watched our little tiny girl get wheeled back to the operating room for her ear surgery. To recap why we are having ear surgery, read THIS post. It is very bittersweet right now. We are so excited for our girl to hear like she should (or the best she can) but I hate that she has to go through this. Also, I am sad that her cute little voice and unique speech pattern might change. But the benefits FAR out way all that, so here we are! She should be out of surgery here after a bit and I will update you all. Thank you for all you support with this, y'all are great!
