This week has been long and stressful so I’m thrilled the weekend is here. Although it poured rain this week, we decided to pack up our trailer and head to the coast. That’s the beauty of this little RV…we can pack it in a jiffy and hit the road. Sometimes short journeys feel like long distances when they take us away from our daily routine.
We saw the surgeon yesterday morning who changed Lucy’s bandage and gave me some good news. The swelling in her paw has gone down enough that it now resembles a real paw! For over two weeks it’s been unrecognizable. She believes Lucy will be able to walk on her paw again, without pain. Lucy may limp, but that might only be because it feels awkward to her. I believe our prayers have been answered already in that she’s improving and her pain is greatly diminished. My heart tells me all of your prayers played a large part in her recovery and I am humbled by your kindness. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
She wears this little boot when the ground is wet. She’s getting used to it but isn’t happy with it.
We’re spending the weekend at the coast less than 2 hours from home which might as well be halfway around the world.
The air is filled with the scent of salt water and Eucalyptus trees. It’s magical to stand on the bluff, listening to the crashing waves and watch the sunset.
The temperature is cooler by the water so I packed several pairs of boots and brought my new fedora. I love hats and this one has tons of attitude! It feels very “Casablanca like” and is a classic shape I will wear year after year.
Being by the coast is a balm to my spirit. I didn’t realize how badly I needed this escape until we got here.
Thanks for reading and being the kind, supportive women you are!
Have a fabulous weekend!!
