it started with a cabin check because I haven’t been out there in a couple of weeks. so I hiked out there in the morning before I started my afternoon shift. the fridge was off..all the food had gone bad. I turned it back on to freeze it all up again and will go back out this morning before work to empty it out. in retrospect..this was the least of the days unhappy events.
as a nurse I find myself in sad situations frequently..yesterday was one of those days where every where I went into there was something going on that made me feel sad.
saints was not having a better day..the staff ran out of water before mid day. the well has never gone dry before the end of june and we are still in may. global warming is becoming personal…I think the melting snow pack was not enough this year to see us thru another month of water here.
annie is still sick and not eating, zoe has rubbed on something and her vulva is swollen and inflamed. we had the vets out because I thought she was prolapsing but thankfully she is not. Crosby is in pain, due to a miscommunication she hasn’t been getting her pain meds since we moved her back outside..she is back on them now so hopefully she will feel better in a day or two. Harley and aggie had vet checks..Harleys insulin dose is going up again so we still do not have good control and aggie who I thought had blown her knee apparently has arthritis in her spine. she can’t take NSAIDS for pain because she is on steroids. the vet said to keep her on the tramadol and see how it goes.
when I got home last night the pump was still running even tho the water tanks had been switched and filled so this means there is something wrong with the pump again..i will called the plumbers today.
and finally my sweet precious ellie was digging around the back fence and got her foot caught in the wire. she freaked out started struggling and screaming. by the time kevin reached her she had pulled the fence down on top of herself and had cut herself to shit all over with that old barbed wire.
that was the last fence to fix and in 10 years I haven’t done it..it is a big expense..too many other costly things were higher up the list…and I waited too long until ellie got cut to shit.
not a great day.
