Things Are Looking Up

Grandson Skyler is home from the hospital. Looks like he got Mono from his brother Quintin so the two of them will be getting lots of rest for awhile. They are slowly getting their strength back. Grandson Justin had his second surgery Saturday. He won't be going back to school this year. He will be sent home this weekend with a pump attached to his leg to keep sucking out the infection, filtering the blood and pumping it back in. He also has a pic line for meds so he doesn't have to be stuck with a needle so often. He will get meds 3 times a day through the pic line. He will also have Home Health Nurse come 3 times a week to change his bandage and check his wound. He will have a tutor come 3 times a week to help him keep up with his school work. I am going up next Saturday for a bit to be there during the day to give his meds so Melody can go back to work. I will be able to spend some time working and painting on the cabin while there. Will also be able to watch Skyler for Megan when she has to work late. Everything seems to be working out with all our schedules and I get to be back in my beautiful mountains. I am trying to pack up things to take with me so there won't be so much to take later when I go up with the animals. Can't walk through the house for the boxes, things that need to be packed, things that need to stored, things that need to be sold, and laundry to fold, pack, or put away. I hate having this mess but am trying to stay focused on the end result.

Saturday was Flock Swap at Tractor Supply. We did really, really, well. We sold Robby and Olivia (goats) to the same farm. We delivered them and it was so nice to see where they will be living. So much more pasture space than they had here. We also sold some laying hens, rabbits, herb plants, eggs, and goat milk soaps. All in all it was a really good day. Miss having Robby around but we didn't want him breeding his daughters. We are now looking for a new buck. I want a young buckling so I can raise him to be gentle and loving like Robby. Olivia seemed really happy at her new home but Lil Vicki missed her mommy last night. Even though Lil Vicki has her own baby she still thinks she is everyone's baby.

Nothing was planted today. William wants to have a plant a small garden here and I am taking things to plant in the mountains. I have a lot of flowers and shrubs to dig up so I can take them with me. Just a lot to do in a few short days its a bit overwhelming. I know it will get done, I just need to put it in high gear and get er' done. Am very thankful for my many blessings. Hope your week is overflowing with blessings!

Glad to hear everyone is on the mend; it sounds like it's still going to be a long journey but glad you'll be there the help. Still saying a prayer for your family.

Glad to hear that the grandchildren are on the mend. It definitely sounds like you've got you're hands full for awhile. I'm so glad that you're finding great homes for all your animals. It must be tough but knowing that you've placed them well has to help so much. Can't wait to hear more about the new place!!!!
