It's learning to look past life's imperfections

Its All Fun and Games Until Someone Gets Hurt

Erika, Chris, Isaiah & Evelyn had a few days away at Patoka Lake with Chris’s family.  They were having a great time swimming


& playing


A bit of napping

evie naping

And preparing to go home….

Chris’s parents dog for some reason “snapped” when she pet it good bye


This is the result……

Don’t look if you have a bad tummy

Weekend mix 079

He tore her lip half off and it was hanging!

They immediately left for the hospital, & got lost in the dark.. They were able to flag down a state trouper or hwy patrol (we’re trying to find out who it was to thank him!) who escorted them to waiting staff &  plastic surgeon at the hospital in Jasper Indiana

The E.R. staff was fantastic, helped them with the kids and could not have provided better assistance

Weekend mix 078

This is the next morning…her entire face is swollen, puncture/tear through the top lip into the inside bottom lip.  Her gums are purple….her nose they thought was broken but its not….she’s a mess…kids scared. Chris, bless his heart held it together and did what was needed…. stayed calm on the outside and freaking out on the inside. 

Me?  I want to shoot the dog.

She sees a local plastic surgeon tomorrow.

Yes, it was a Memorial Day Weekend to remember

  1. Oh my goodness, that is awful. What is being done about the dog?

  2. If they keep the dog that will send a bad message to the ones involved in the incident. I hope they do the right thing and turn it in to the pound for rehab.

  3. Oh my God, I'm so sorry this happened. I do hope they put the dog down. As much as I love animals, there is no reason & God knows this can happen again. Praying she heals well & soon & for your peace & sanity ((HUGS))

  4. When I opened this up, the first picture to pop up was the first lip picture. So sorry. Hope it does not scar to badly.
    I would be tempted to load up too.
    Next time it could be one of the babies.

  5. Thanks all, Passing on you good wishes to Erika....the dog was turned into a "rehab" center and they have 2 wks to see if he can be worked with again. No, the kids will never go to that home if they take him back!


Hey! Thanks for stopping in I love hearing from my bloggy friends!
