Poppy and a few animals

Good grief! I am so far behind with reading posts and posting. Maybe I'll just pretend I'm not, and start here...

We were at the hospital at 6:15 Monday morning. Poppy came through his surgery fine, and honestly, I think they must have prescribed happy pills for him. He has not been this cheerful and happy and talkative in years.



Saying hello here and still looking a little high from the anesthesia. I'm sure the nurses in the recovery room were glad to see us leave. It sounded like a party going on from the time he started coming off the anesthesia until we got out of there. Folks coming off anesthesia can sure say some funny things!

When I asked Eli if he wanted to play in the Goat's lot, he grabbed his bear. Wanted to carry back-up this time.





Smokey watching from his post...




I said once, no more big bones but on Sunday, Poppy brought home surprises...



One for Eli and one for Weetie...



These floors will never be the same.

I'm really in need of something fun and interesting to talk about. Maybe when spring and gardening time gets here...

Thank you for stopping by.

Love,
Henny

  1. I'm glad that Poppy did well with his surgery and woke up happy. I hope he stays happy when the anesthesia is totally worn off. Have you ever see the video of the man waking after surgery and doesn't recognize his wife? He tells her how beautiful she is and goes on and on. It's really funny and really happened. If you haven't seen it, you can Google it as man waking from surgery with wife. It popped right up when I did the search. I wanted to make sure it was still available to watch.

  8. Glad Poppy made it through with flying colors! Keeper loves his stuffed toys as well! Did you say you wanted to talk gardening? :O) I have been planting seeds like crazy. I have pretty much got all my peppers, tomatoes and eggplants in seed trays. Oh some Swiss chard and artichokes too. When do you start your seedlings in your neck of the woods?

    1. Thank you. Oh I love to talk gardening! :) Would you believe I have never started seedlings! I honestly don't know how to use my little greenhouse. First I need a little greenhouse heater. Buying the plants is so expensive. We bought two heavy duty drop cords but I'm using them for a light in the baby guinea's pen. Once this cold weather is past I can use the drop cords for a heater. I'm dying to try seedlings. I've been reading! :)

    Best wishes to Poppy, and please give Eli a pat (and for that matter, Weetie and Smokey!)

  11. So glad Poppy made it through surgery! That is so cute that Eli wanted to take his bear for protections from the hay-headed goat. Smokey is growing into a beautiful cat! I am getting kind of ready for spring to even though I would love to see one snow fall before then. My daffodils opened up during theses warm days when have been having.
    I love you!

  13. Wonderful news to read that Poppy's surgery went well, and now that's behind him.
    Eli surely loves that little bear, and sweet Smokey high on his outpost :)
    Yes, I think we are all looking forward to warmer days.

  14. Hope the recovery is going well for Poppy! AND for you too! Being a caregiver is tough some days...maybe he can cook for you during his recovery:)

    1. It can be tough! :) He actually warmed up a bowl of chili (by himself) in the microwave for his lunch today! I was busy outside. Thank you.

  15. So glad the surgery went well and what a bonus -- maybe they gave him happy pills. The dogs look so happy with their big bones.
