Tonight we managed to bake cookies without a complete meltdown. Colton is getting the concept that the cookies will come out of the oven. He waited patiently tonight for his "coo coo".
The saga continues with our dog. Since July 27th, we've made 6 or 7 trips to our vet, one midnight run to the Animal Emergency Room, had several bandage changes and filled multiple prescriptions. Yesterday we took her back in for a second surgery to drain her ear. The Vet sent us home with "anti-anxiety" medication (at this point I'm not sure if it was for me or the dog:).
