Emma's Pick - Sick As A Dog

Well......I debated whether or not I should do a post about this. But I have to explain why Emma's Pick Of The Week is canceled this week (but it will be back next week). And why I basically closed the shop for a few days this week. And since I don't think I've ever met a sewer/crafter who isn't also a pet lover I know you will understand.

On Halloween, Emma slipped a disc in her neck. I know - my poor baby! Emma was seen at the vet on Monday and is now blissfully enjoying her pain pills. She's slowly improving but it will take a few weeks before she's 100%. So, she wasn't in the mood to do a photo shoot and a blog post.
It was also time for Max to have some routine "senior dog" tests so we did that on Monday as well. The test results were shocking.....especially considering the fact that Max is acting completely healthy. But they showed that he has an extremely large (almost the size of a football!) and very dangerous tumor in his abdomen. So, the next thing I know I'm rushing him over to a specialty surgery and emergency center an hour and a half away. He was admitted to the ICU and got surgery today. There were no complications and he should be able to come home soon.

Yup. My week has been kind of a blur. And I now fully understand the expression "sick as a dog."

I'll keep you updated,
