traciveek I walked into the living room and this is what greeted me. I promise, this is NOT staged. She simply LOVES sunbathing. 😎#DaisyTheDaschund #DoxieLove 5h

traciveek I wanted to take a picture of my pear, to let you know I was going to have it for breakfast, in case you were on the edge of your seat, wondering. Hee hee hee... #NotReally I just thought it would make for a pretty picture. What say you? Since we're talking breakfast, what did you have? I'm always looking for inspiration as it's not my favorite meal. Thanks! 7h

traciveek I thought it would be cute to show you Daisy's "Where's my part of your dinner?" face. Gertie & Sebastian decided they were being left out of something. This is the shot I ended up getting. Too funny! #LifeWithDogs #Family #SaturdayNight 3d

traciveek That day you were learning how to make pasta, and you turn around to see your daughter holding the extra dough that she shaped into a heart for you. "Hey mom, I love you!" #MyLovebug #RGTembrace #SurprisedByMotherhood #tbt 5d

traciveek We got to see Gertie!!! She's been seizure free for over 6 hours!! Only 6 more to go! There were lots of kisses, snuggles, hugs, praises, prayers and tail wagging going on! Thank you all for your sweet words and prayers! We're not out of the woods yet, but we're a lot closer! Love, the Veeks xoxo 2w

traciveek Update on our Gertie in the comments...Please keep praying, friends? 2w
  •   traciveek We received a call from the doctor and Gertie has had a couple more seizures, which isn't good. She needs to be seizure free for at least 12 hours in a row, every time she has one the clock resets. If she has another one they will put her on heavier medication which will mean we'll have to look at her quality of life and possibly decide to put her to sleep so she doesn't suffer. We're ok with that, but we want to see her pull through. We haven't been able to see her since we dropped her off this morning and it's been very hard. We are already feeling how quiet the house is without her and expecting to hear her bark at things and all we hear is silence. We are praying that the Lord would heal her, that we would be able to see her, even if briefly, and especially if she doesn't make it through this. We are hoping she will stop seizing so we can bring her home and care for her here. We just want a little more time with her if this is her time to leave us, and we're ok with being a bit selfish about this. She is, after all, a part of our family. Please pray for our Gertie-gert, and our hearts? Thank you so very much. The Veeks xoxo 2w

traciveek Our sweet Gertie is in the hospital. We awoke early this morning to her having siezures every couple of minutes. I cradled her in my arms as she siezed the whole way there. I felt so helpless not being able to help her. Will you please pray for us? This is difficult, she's a part of our family, and we don't know if she'll get better. Thank you. The Veeks xoxo 2w

traciveek When you don't realize you're going overboard making sure your grown up girl has her space, and she replies with this... #Family #SurprisedByMotherhood #RGTembrace #CollegeLife 1mon

traciveek Can I brag a little? I've been stressed to the max trying to make this #college thing work. It is HARD. This was a big project (a restaurant concept proposal) I had to do in addition to the regular stuff and 2 other classes (one of them being English). This turns my sad tears into happy ones. #GonnaBeAChef #ChefTraci #HappyDance #RealLife #StudentMom 1mon
