Blackjack is growing up!


It’s Blackjack’s 2 week birthday!   Can’t believe how fast he is growing up.  He’s already running around and being a little goof!

Maggie built a lovely milking stand for us…  Buttercup loves it.  She hops right up on it and is ready to milk!  She loves the twice daily grain snacks…  sometimes she gets a little fruit from the house or leave off the trees…  anyway you slice it, she loves to come up to the screen porch and milk!

Had a bit of a rough week…  ended up in the hospital for 4 days while I was treated for blood clots in my legs and in my lungs!  I started feeling a little weird, breathless and just super tired last week and thought perhaps I was getting a cold or something but nothing really developed.  Well, finally by Monday, I thought, something is just not right and finally got myself to the ER.   Pretty darn good thing I did because I ended up being admitted and I could have had a heart attack or a serious stroke!!!   Pretty much saved my life.   Also got on some medication for my diabetes and I can honestly say, I feel like a thousand bucks right now!   Ready to take on life again, Sherri 2.0!

Gotta behave a bit, relax a bit, but come Monday I’m suppose to start walking daily and getting my energy level back up.  Can’t wait.  A little bored just sitting around and taking it easy!

Just a few fun pictures from the week I was kind of gone!   Hope you all missed me!  I sure missed you all!!!

Momma tolerates him nursing a bit as long as she has really good snacks in her bowl!   And she’s tied up… and you are watching carefully.   She just really doesn’t like him that much.   At least she’s not biting him anymore…   that’s something!
