    Hey everyone...I just wanted to check in. I have so much going on here. I have missed chatting....and WILL be back soon. Here is a few things that going on here.

    My mother is 69 yrs old. She was put in the hospital last week..congestive heart failure. They cant seem to get her heart rate stabelized...and because of that she has fluids backuped around her lungs...kidney..and pancreas. She is haveing a heard time breathing..and she has COPD. So this fluid issue is makeing the COPD even worse. She cant keep food down, and is now down to 100 pounds.
    She really needs your prayers. We all do.
    then...last weekend, I was coming home form my sisters....and hit a LARGE dog...like, golden retriever size..with my Chevy S 10. I was on the highway, and was doing about 60 MPH. It was at night...and this dog came up out of the ditch, right in front of me. There was no way to miss the poor dog. And No, he didnt make it. My truck sustained quite a bit of damage. I was not hurt...just shook up pretty bad. I was alone when I hit the dog....at night, and my cell phone did not have a signal...so I was not able to stop untill I got to the next town. I feel REALLY bad for not stopping..and checking on the dog. I have been sick over it.
    What I thought was the flu...is actually pneumonia. I have been taking breathing treatments daily...and trying to still get everyone here taken care of. I can visit my mother, with a mask on. Oh, fun....NOT! My DH mother is going in for surgery on her legs..she has clots...so I have been trying to help get things organised for them as well...they live 1 1/2 hrs away.
    Let me tell ya...when it rains..it pours.
    For thos who want the roosters....I WILL send them..as soon as I get ONE day to breath. they are doing great, and are healthy. Please...bare with me here....as soon as I get a few things settled...I will get them in the mail.
    Thanks for listening to my long ranting. I just want everyone to know...I didnt fall off the face of the earth...im here...I think..LOL

    You have had a hard couple of months, huh? Well, you know your chicken family will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. You try to slow down to get yourself healthy. It seems to me that you have a lot of people (and chickens) depending on you right now. [​IMG]
