It is never a dull moment here at the Sanford's. There is always drama here! We could never survive the goings on here if Jesus wasn't in the midst of all of it. Last week, we had an appointment to get the dog spayed. Well I almost re-scheduled the surgery because someone needed to stay home with her the following day. We stuck to our appointment, the Vet did the surgery and just as he was closing, blood came out through her nose. He had to open her back up again and see what the problem was. After an xray he found, something, maybe metal in her upper colon, which means we needed to pray that it passes through. After raising six kids, never has anyone swallowed something that has put them in harms way.
We've been checking poop for days, haven't found any metal objects but quite a few hard plastic pieces from one of her chew toys. It was such a stressful few days knowing our 6 month old puppy was in so much danger. Jerin took the news the hardest, but she slept next to her crate all night and Sierra spent the whole night moving around her trying to find a comfy spot, as Joseph would say.
Folks say, OMGosh how do you do it...It's only because of our Faith that we can go through so many trials and tribulations in our daily lives...For those without Christ...my question is HOW DO YOU DO IT? We cry, we pray and then watch God do his will. Did I tell you, both of our hamsters died in the same week, the same week our Grandmother and favorite Aunt died too. There's been a lot of talk about death around here, which really opened the door for discussions on life after death.
