Good afternoon prim friends. I don't about you, but I enjoy visiting blogs that are cheery and fun...however, mine has not been so lately, and for that I apologize. Life has been pretty rough around here the past couple months, and the weekend was no different.
My sweet hubby has been having a very tough time with the chemo this weekend. He was so weak and couldn't eat or drink much at all. We left early this morning to head back to the chemo lab, so that he could get rehydrated and get some more anti-nausea meds in him. He should be feeling much better in an hour or so.
If you recall, I had mentioned before about my Rooster Hoss...who had some injuries to his comb as a result of the mink attack. I brought him inside and he was crowing up a storm Saturday morning and looking so good, I thought it was time for him to return to the coop. I placed our other rooster in the barn to enable Hoss to re-establish himself....he seemed just fine. I went back out about 1/2 later to check for eggs and check on him. He was walking around the coop. I bent over to search the nest boxes...heard a strange sound behind me...turned around and poor Hoss was flopping around on the floor...I quickly picked him up, and with one last breath...he died in my arms. I am not certain what happened, but I have read that it is not uncommon for sudden death to happen to male birds....and perhaps the strain of the entire attack, recovery and reintroduction were just to much for his little heart.
Let's hope the rest of the week goes well! I really need to stay at home and get some things done...with Chris' chemo last week and today, I am so far behind. I have orders to get out and work on.
Through it all, we are Praising God for His goodness in our Life. We have so many blessings, and although we've hit a few bumps in the road recently, things could be so much worse...so we thank our Lord for his kindness and for looking over us with his Love.
Have a lovely week all....I'll try to blog again in a couple days.
Bless you all once again for all your kind comments and prayers...Chris & I appreciate each and every one!
