yes, a night or two!

Today I took Charli in for her "pre-op" appointment (for her eye surgery next Tuesday) and one question they asked me was "Has Charli spent a night in the hospital before?" "ummm, yeah...a night or two!!!!"

We are a go for surgery on Tuesday, probably around 7:30am at the hospital. Generally they do them at the surgery center (at the eye clinic) but for one reason or another Charli's will be done at the hospital. We expect her to do great, and have wonderfully beautiful eyes by the end of next week!! (her eyes ARE beautiful, but they will be even better!!)

And, in typical Preister fashion - many things must be going on in our house at once in order for us to fully function! Kasper (the white dog) seem to be pretty sick, or something. Our vet thinks that he has had one (or more) seizures. Unless they continue on a very regular basis, it doesn't sound like there is anything they can do for him, as far as medication goes. Hopefully this was a one time thing, with no long term effects. Poor guy.

I don't even know what to say after that...so I will go into the pictures now!
shy smile! (you can see my sore eyes:-( )

Sending you good thoughts and prayers.

My favorite ? they ask for admitting a baby in the hospital is, "Do they have any tattoos?"

Thanks for the new pictures!
