More Doggie Drama

Romie decided she needed to go back to the vet last week, as if her recent cow incident wasn’t enough!  I started to notice something was wrong when Romie started rubbing her eyes a lot, and then I noticed that her eye was all red and had a hazy look to it. 
I called the vet, and (of course) they advised me to bring her in that day.

Seven came along for the ride to be a supportive big sister to Romie.

It turns out that Romie got some sort of a scratch on her eye, and she has a Corneal Ulcer!  Poor baby!

When she’s unsupervised, she’s supposed to wear this cone.  She’s also back on anti-inflammatory meds and eye drops 4 times a day.  Her prognosis is good; there doesn’t seem to be any complications.  Romie should be as good as new in a few days.


  1. Sweet lil Romes, look at that cute underbite! I love your pups!

  2. Have you seen the movie Up...Romie is wearing the cone of shame....Made me and my kids giggle hope she is better soon.

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
