Dogs have an impeccable sense of pain within their owners. When I came home from the hospital, my chocolate lab, Molly, stuck her snout behind my back and was attempting to lick my wounds where I had surgery. I suppose it’s okay to admit it, we are crazy dog people. I have two labs, Amelia and Molly. My parents have two, magpie hahahaha. I’m sorry, I just laughed out loud at my iPhone’s auto correct. Her name is Maggie, not magpie. The fourth lab is Olivia. Since my mom is in town helping me get around, so are the other two K9s. A true animal house, but they make me happy.
The hard life.
I am hoping to get out of the house again this week. I’m not going to lie, I am so excited to go to Target so I can cruise around on their turbo motorized wheelchairs. This is a must do!
Mom and I also might go see a movie, if I have enough energy. I am still very tired, and the pain is still there.. but the pain serves as a constant reminder of how lucky I am to have survived that car accident.
