As many of you know, Rodnee is a VERY active mini-dachshund. He loves playing, running and chasing birds & squirrels. Yesterday morning he hurt himself, but we could not figure out exactly what was hurt (we knew it was something with his hip or back). He seemed better by mid-morning so we did not take him to the vet. Yesterday when I got home from work he could barely walk inside and was shaking from him mid-back to his legs. He ate dinner & drank water, so that is good.... this morning there was no improvement. It is like his back legs were giving out.
Brian took him to the vet today and he slipped a disk in his back, which means he will be on crate rest for the next 3 weeks. This will be an extreme challenge because he will want to run outside, go up and down the stairs and jump. The vet gave him some anti-inflammatories and pain medication, which will make him feel better when he really is not. Please pray for Rodnee's recovery. Brian and I are beyond thrilled that it is nothing major, but keeping him calm for the next 3 weeks will be difficult.
Brian and Carrie have been married since January 2004. We love the Lord and are blessed with wonderful friends and a supportive, loving family. In July 2009 we welcomed our first daughter, Addison Rose. She is a spunky, fun toddler and we love her so much. Sweet McKenna Noelle was born on Christmas Day 2010. Having two children 17 months apart is a little crazy, but that is our life and we would not change it for the world.
Our families theme scripture is "Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18
Our life since getting married has been an amazing journey and hope you enjoy reading about it.
