This month has been a busy month for us. Earlier this month Zella had to undergo yet another surgery for the removal of several large chalazions that were putting pressure on her right eye causing astigmatism (blurred vision). The surgery went very well and all of the chalazions were removed successfully. Unfortunately more have returned but are small enough that we hope will go away on their own with the help of warm compresses and Occusoft eye lid scrubs. These things have been plaguing Zella's upper and lower right eye lids for a little over a year now and she has already endured three out patient surgeries to remove them. We are told that she will more than likely out grow them but there is a chance she may not.
We have been enjoying this beautifully colorful autumn season. All of the leaves have begun to change and with the few storms we have had, some have even begun to fall. The girls have taken full advantage of this and have been participating in many funfilled leaf wars.
The sunsets have been absolutely breathtaking these past few days as well. My favorite sunset of all happened about a week ago. All of the pinks, blues, and purples in the sky looked like cotton candy.
I took the girls earlier on today to pick out the perfect pumpkin.
We visit the same place every year. We just love their corn stalk tee pee and the rows upon rows of pumpkins to choose.
The girls settled on a few "baby" pumpkins and one large pumpkin which we plan to make into our jack o' lantern. We may pick up a few more pumpkins this weekend so our "Jack" will have a few friends.
