Riley dog

I had plans to write a lighthearted post this week telling you all about how sunny & warm southern California is (it really is!), with lots of cute pictures of Lincoln, but to be honest, I’ve been a bit distracted.

We found out last weekend that our little dog Riley has a serious heart/lung condition, and the prognosis is not great.
He’s 15 years old, so it’s not surprising that something like this would come up… but that doesn’t really make it any easier to process.

So, for now, we have him on some medications that seem to be helping and he’s had a few good days.  Hopefully, he continues to respond well and we are able to enjoy a few more good months with him.

The husband and I had what will probably be our last weekend of just the two of us.  It was nice and low key….

Lazy morning with a sleepy kitty…

A very, very delicious breakfast at Madeleine’s downtown…

Lounging on the deck and catching up on some important reading…

And of course, watching this big belly grow…

Today is baby boy’s official due date… hopefully he will be making an appearance soon 🙂
