Pupils & Puddy-Cats

We had a fun afternoon... at the ER! NOT!

Todd was grinding a piece of metal down in the basement this afternoon and a piece of the grinder's blade flew off as he was cutting through the metal and flew up and under his safety glasses. It struck him right in the left eye!!

Since the ER in Elkford is not open on weekends, we drove to Sparwood to get it looked at. The Dr. arrived after about 15 minutes and used the Slit Lens Viewer they have in the hospital and removed a small fragment of foreign matter and inspected the cornea. Everything is intact but his eye is slightly scraped and irritated. In order to view any foreign substances in the eye properly, the Dr had to put in a dye... hence the yellow stain below Todd's eye...

After the ER visit, he immediately went out and bought a face shield to wear for the remainder of the job! Good thinking honey!!

And after almost a year and a half of having no pets, I couldn't hold off any longer. As of Monday, we will have a new addition to our family....

Meet Teaca....

She's an adorable tabby cat that we're going to pick up in Lethbridge on Monday afternoon. She needed a new home because he owner had to move to Vancouver so she's going to come and stay with us!!! I am elated! I can't wait to meet her!!!
