How does time just fly by so quickly? The last two weeks have just literally flown by. But when you stay busy I guess that is the way it goes? No wonder I am just getting Older Every Day??? ~smile~
I have dressed Crystal's wound every day-pulling out the salt strips that I have to insert deep inside of the wound and putting new ones in. She has been a real Trooper. I mean how would you like to pour salt in a wound?? The hospital decided it must have been a brown recluse bite and the infection is still pouring out .
I Finally got some warm weather - here it is the 3rd of July and the last 3 days have been warm enough for me to leave the window open at night. It has been so pleasant. Three nights ago it was a perfect temperature with a slight breeze blowing and a full moon. I took the pups out at almost midnight and we sat in the swing and just enjoyed the most perfect night I have enjoyed in a long time.
I am still fighting with ticks galore -every time I go out in the pasture to do anything. Then a week ago I got attacked by a rooster. Now normally I would not think much of it but he was on a shelf high above me when I went in to feed and water and he weighs right at 7 pounds so he is no light-weight. He came down on me full force and caught me on the head and temple and almost took me to the ground. I was stunned and stumbled out of the little hen house . I do believe he gave me a slight concussion because since I have had 3 before I know the symptoms - this blinding headache has been my main complaint the entire week but the "Rooster-Egg" he left on my head and the bruise on my temple have been reminders. I still have a terrible sore head and am careful combing my hair or washing my face. I did rig up a single dwelling cage for him outdoors beside the henhouse since he wants to bully me and I do not want to get hurt any more than I have too.
My doctor sent me to a physical therapist to help teach me exercises to help with the arthritis in my neck and back. He taught me two last week and then I had a fibro flare that has made me miserable all week long. So, up and on we go.
Maybe Crystal will continue to improve. I sure do hope so!
