What a week!

Sorry I haven't updated yet. This week has truly been an emotional rollercoaster for our family. Easton is doing great and the sweetest baby boy ever! I couldn't ask for an easier baby. He is very laid back so far and only cries when something is wrong. And as soon as you fix the problem he is happy again. So if he cries it is usually because he is either hungry or needs a diaper change. I am so blessed!

This week has been pretty rough for us though. Our baby Sage had a major episode of multiple seizures on Tuesday. She has been fighting for her life all week. It has literally been an hour by hour wait and see. Her seizures lasted off and on for 10 hours before they were able to get her to a stable condition. Chris and I spent the week getting up early in the morning to transport her to and from the emergency hospital back to our regular vet. And then taking her back again in the evening to the emergency facility. She is doing much better today and they have gotten her on her oral meds now that she will be on the rest of her life. It has been a really rough time for Chris and I as many of you know how much we love our dogs and they truly are our first babies. She most likely won't ever be the "same" dog anymore as the medication will slow her down a bit. But I have no doubt that our love for her will not change and if anything she is just going to be more spoiled now! Grace has been really taking it hard this week. Today she isn't wanting to eat so I am anxious to get Sage home so she knows she is ok. I will keep you all posted and once things slow down I will write in detail all about our precious baby boy. He is truly a gift from God and we couldn't ask for a better baby. He blows me away with how sweet he is. I am in total aww!

Please keep us in your prayers over the next few weeks as this medicine takes its course on Sage. We are praying that she responds well and stays seizure free.

Here are some updated photos of Little E. I will post soon.
