Ok Brad, you and I, with the health problems, but you are too young for them! Oh wait, I don't know how old or young you are. lol.. I'm old. I was actually diagnosed with Fibro, then with MS, and I just said, treat me as a symptom shows up. I don't take anything for either, ha, just have surgery when needed though. Being out of my neck brace has been great.
So, I have my bad days, and I have my good days, but I always..most always..not after surgery..get out to my girls. They always make me smile. I think they actually help me do better with all that is going on in this body. Of course my family is right there too, I have a wonderful husband right here, and it sounds like your dad is great! He knows that this makes you happy. You are very blessed to have such a dad. I never had the opportunity to know my real dad.
I also had a hen last year that had bumble foot. Boy, was that something to deal with. My husband held the chicken, while I did the surgery and wrapping. lol...she ended up doing really well after. I was kind of proud of myself.
Well, I think we are all here for each other. So thankful to get to meet new folks on here. I...LOVE...chicken people!! They are the friendliest! I'm also thankful for the help I get on here. You sure have done your fair share of giving help to us! Thank you!
Take care, and if you want to share your health problems, go for it..or if you would rather just go out and talk to your girls about it, then that works too. lol. I know I do. They know when I'm having an extra bad day, I tell them, " ya know, it isn't easy to walk out here today, but here I am, and here's your food, and thanks for listening." lol... They do talk back don't ya know... The whole time I'm out there, they talk to me..of course, they want food. But sometimes, I swear, they just get excited to see me. I like to think so anyway.
So, take care, and maybe you and I will get the chance to meet! Hope so!!!
Ok, went back in time on our thread. I saw your post about your health and your age.. You are young. I have kids older than you. So your back and your heart. I told you way back then that we were twins with the health problems, my back, neck, and heart also. I've had two heart ablations. And just like you said, that's life. But, I was doing pretty good at 21. I'm so glad you have your chickens! You have a great attitude!
