The Yea! part is that Gracie gets her stitches out today. No more Elizabethan collar, no more putting her in her crate backwards, no more trying in vain to get the little pup to calm down. And, we can give her a bath. She stinks.
The Whoops! part is this. Remember when Mini-me was sick and throwing up last week? Remember when we took her to get tested for strep? Remember when the rapid test came back negative? Remember? Well, they told us they would call with the lab results on Thursday. When they didn't call us, I assumed (there's that word) that she was negative. They usually don't call with a negative. Imagine our surprise when they phone rang at 9:30 this morning. Yup, she's got it. After we've had Flower here the whole weekend. After Mini-me has shared my Diet Coke. After we spent all morning at church yesterday and all evening at GrandPatty and Papa Ken's house with cousins and friends who are like cousins*. Whoops indeed.
*We will gladly pay the copay on all strep visits in the next week. Offer expires Friday. Hurry! Act now!
