Bayley Update

Bayley is doing great. We just got home from the vet's and she saw no problems at all. He weighed in at 9.6 lbs. :) He's a growing boy! :D He got the last of his shots, and I'm glad to have those behind us. Today's his birthday---four months old. :D

Holding My Breath

I'm afraid that my Bayley Baby hurt his back on Friday. He's probably not seriously hurt, but he definitely is not himself. He's walking, doing his business, etc., but he's not attempting to walk or run any more than he has to. That is a good thing, on the one hand, but on the other it's also a huge red signal to me that something is wrong. The other thing is that I'm crating him and he's not objecting to that at all. I have a call in to the vet to see if I can give him some Pred as a precaution to lessen any swelling or inflamation that he may have. He's only four months old, and I just shrivel up inside to think he may have back problems so young. All of you dog lovers out there send up some prayers for my precious pup. He's already stolen our hearts completely.

Computer Challenges

I've successfully spent the last four hours in getting the router to work on our computers. I would rather go to the dentist than have to figure computer 'inner-workings' out! However, I WAS successful and am now composing this new post on MY computer (which has been dialup only for the last 6+ years). :) Now, maybe I will be able to post more frequently, share photos with my family and friends more often, and just in general be more relaxed about time spent on the computer. We've been in the process of switching from satellite to DSL for the last several weeks, and I am so much happier with DSL than I EVER was with Hughes satellite. The Hughes tech support gang were probably as sick of me as I was (am) of them!!! :D Now, I'm downloading and installing Picassa for my photos. I tried it once (a long time ago) on Randy's computer and just about had heart failure because it sorted EVERYTHING (including CSA notes). Decided that would be way too involved to help him adjust to, so I just removed it. Now I'm excited to see if I will be happy with it for just my pictures. edited 8-5-09 Still have computer issues...get one problem solved, and create a whole slew of others. :/ I think I'll go back to 'BC' (before computers).
