A bit of family time needed....

Meet Ollie - he's our new grandpuppy. ( about 10 weeks old in this photo) He is a groodle - a cross between a golden retriever and a poodle. He came visiting last weekend and was just too cute.



There hasn't been much time for anything this week as my 17 year old son is in hospital. He has had to have some surgery on his jaw which has been quite major. He was operated on last Monday and won't come home until Saturday. Then we have to feed him blended food for 6 weeks. It was his choice to have the operation now - but it has meant that he has missed his very last week at high school and also his graduation and school formal. He also gave up going to 'schoolies' at the Gold Coast. ( For anyone overseas Schoolies is a time for students to let their hair down a bit(?) after finishing high school. )
My week has been spent visiting and travelling. The hospital he is in is situated in the city, and parking is a real pain. The good part is that the hospital is air conditioned and with our hot temperatures at the moment it is a good place to be.
So I have taken a bit of a break from things just to support my boy - next week we will be at home a lot so hopefully I can catch up on things.

Tell your son I am very proud of him. To take charge of his life and take care of his body. My son graduates this year also, so I understand all that he's missing out on but a man's decission. Good luck to him and take care mama, it's hard but will work out.
Happy Thanksgiving.
P.S. your puppy is adorable!!
