Is This A Test???

Do you ever feel like life is a test?
Last week was stressful to say the least. Started out Tuesday, Benelli (our family dog) was very sick and needed to go to the vet.
She has eaten a sock and needed to have it surgically removed.
This required cutting her intestine open and removing the sock that was stuck.
(Please be aware of what your pet eats!!!)
She came home on Wednesday afternoon, but would not eat a thing.
Thursday morning Sidney (my youngest) woke me up at 4am in crying pain on her right side (appendices you might think)
So off to the ER we went. Arrived at 5am.
After several diagnostic tests it was determined Sidney has a kidney stone stuck in her ureter. OUCH.
Surgery then at 8pm got home.
Meanwhile while I was at ER, Mike had to take Benelli back to the vet.
She was given a shot of antibiotic and we were hoping she would finally start eating.
Oh, I forgot to mention Mike and I are supposed to be leaving for JBUGS Friday morning.......
After arrangements were made for Sidney and Benelli, Thanks MOM
we were off to Redmond, OR
It was nice to see Peggy, Lisa and the girls.
Forgot my camera so these were taken from my blackberry
This is a little pic of my booth in the making

Patti's beautiful bed!!!
Here is Peggy and Bill...They are great friends!

Toni and her daughter

Inside Lisa's wonderful shop..
Also guess who showed up to shop?
It was so nice to see her. She got some great treasures.
Here is Tess. She lives in Bend and has a gift for beautifying furniture~even got a couple of pieces for Farm Chicks

Yesterday Benelli had to go back to be opened back up. She was infected....Mike picked her up this morning and she is doing well. (thank goodness)
Sidney went back to the Urologist this morning and is also doing pretty good.
So if this is a test Lord I hope I passed!!!!!!!!!
To my delight I received the best email of the whole weekend.

Oh Julie, that's so much at one time--it's very good news they are all doing better! (My sister lost a beloved schnauzer to a silk Christmas wreath that was on the coffee table--but Schatzi did not survive . . . such a sad, sad day!)

Take care and see ya soon!
