Today for art class, Olivia continued on her self-portrait on canvas with acrylic paint. Mixing up a skin tone wasn't easy, but I think she came up with a very natural color.
Our Lusy was sick last week (coughing up blood) and went to the vet Friday. They kept her for a few hours and put her under anesthesia so they could look down her trachea and take x-rays. Her heart was obscured by a dark area on her lungs, but when the doctor listened to her lungs, they sounded clear. Very confusing. He sent the x-rays on to a specialist. It seems she has a fungal pneumonia, and so gave her an injection and now we're giving her antibiotics. She's to go back in a few days for another x-ray to be sure it's clearing up.
And tonight we're expecting a bit of snow! We celebrate the Nativity of Christ on Wednesday Dec. 25 / January 7th (old calendar)...so it would be really nice to have a white Christmas for us Orthodox Christians.
