After this semester is over, I'll have to plan a "field trip" to Beths! CoopScoop...it's a date!
I'm rationalizing bantams by knowing I can use them as incubators. If they're in hanging cages, I won't have a fire ant problem with them hatching. I never had fire ants bother the rabbits.
I have to share this, even though most of you don't know me or my health issues. For years I've been diagnosed with a degenerative, non-treatable neuromuscular disorder. I've gone from being the hay-bale-stacking-feed-bag-slinger to unable to pick up a grown rabbit from the ground, and needing forearm crutches and a leg brace to get around. And I had only to look forward to ending up bed-bound and on a feeding tube.
Yesterday I got the results of my latest objective muscle strength tests. The latest attempt at treatment IS WORKING!!! I have gained strength in both upper and lower body, with huge gains in my legs. So I am celebrating! Confetti for everyone! (Biodegradable confetti, please! Fruity Pebbles!) I have not had good news like this in years! I've given up raising sheep, raising angora rabbits, gave up my macaw I brought back from Panama, gave up my dreams of doing field research....and now I may be able to pick some of my plans and dreams back up! I am on the most amazing high ever right now. So, someone do a happy dance for me. I'm not able to dance yet...but perhaps I'll be able to later!
