This has definitely been one of the hardest days I've had to experience in a while. After checking on our family dog yesterday, I was sure he'd be ok until today when we could take him in to the vet. This morning he was in so much pain. He was out of it, and crying a lot. It broke my heart. We loaded him up and Andrea and I took him to Big Spring to the vet there. After waiting about 30 minutes to see the doctor because we were a walk-in, Dr. Burt examined him briefly and laid down the news.... He had tumors, one had ruptured, which were causing him to have trouble walking, and maggots had gotten in there. It would take a lot to clean him all up, and even then, because it was tumors it would cost a lot of money and it wouldn't even be giving him a clean bill of health. He was 14 years old, so the vet suggested we just put him down. I knew that was what was going to happen, but it seriously broke my heart when they told me. I had put that he was my dog when I filled out the paperwork, so I had to sign to authorize the euthanasia. Talk about the HARDEST thing to do EVER. I never ever ever ever ever want to have to do something like that again. Andrea and I cried, and pet him constantly while they administered the shot. I've never had to witness one of our animals pass away.... this killed me. I'm still sad and I miss him so much already. He was so awesome.... =(
We love you Deets, and we miss you so much! Please watch over us from Heaven!

Welcome to our blog! After a year of TTC, one round of clomid, and making an appointment with an RE in Lubbock, God decided that He knew all along when we would have a baby! Our baby boy arrived on March 31, 2011, and we have loved watching him grow already! Apparently fertility is a funny, funny thing, and we are happy to announce that our baby girl was born on April 18, 2012! Follow along on our crazy ride with two under two!
I'm married to the man of my dreams, and I couldn't be happier! We welcomed our son into this world in March 2011 and feel beyond blessed to have him in our lives! We were even more blessed by the arrival of our baby girl in April 2012. We are loving life, as crazy as it may be sometimes with two under two!
