Just being silly!



So, I haven't blogged much. I think I'm not the only one that can say that!

The kids are well - have been for 2 weeks! Yippie! Scott had a long week at work last week, but he did great. I cooked him a special supper Friday night: Parmesan crusted chicken breasts, mashed potatoes and baked green beans. It was fantastic, if I do say so myself.

I had an incredible surgery day on Thursday:

1) Reconstruction skin surgery on a bulldog. She was missing about a 5" of skin on her inner thigh. I used a rotational pedicle flap to close most of it, leaving a hole about the size of a silver dollar. I was pleased but was sure hoping that I could have closed it the entire way.

2) 4 month old puppy who had eaten a towel. An incision into her stomach, duodenum and jejunum yielded my prize. The puppy is now doing great.

3) An adult Lab who cut her face on metal (I think). Her nose was split through the frenulum and split her sinus cavity, while pulling the tissue off of her maxilla. She also had a broken tooth. That one came together really well - I was very happy with it.

Anyways, we are getting ready for Kate's birthday party next Friday. She will be 4 years old on Wednesday! We love that girl with all our hearts!
