My doctor from Portland came down for a clinic day today--yea for not having to drive to Portland Overall they're happy with how I'm doing. No graft vs host still. The legs---may be several reasons. Any of my myriad meds, my anemia, etc. He thinks it will gradually resolve as I'm able to get off meds and just get better overall. He and his nurse practitioner both feel a blood transfusion may be in order, they both mentioned I didn't have my normal sparkle. I'm okay with getting transfused, but I do think some of it's just adjusting to the idea of being chronically ill. While I was gone, I had a goal--to go home. Now I'm home, and there's no real goal except "you'll feel better in a year or so". Gee, thanks. Somewhere in my mind I had the idea once I got home, I'd be able to go back to my normal life, and the reality is I just can't and that's very hard to adjust to. But enough whining! I think the heat accelerated the development of the eggs under my broody. She had 6 eggs, and day 21 was yesterday. They started hatching on Monday eve, by Tuesday noc she had 3 chicks. Wed she left the nest. One egg had pipped, so I brought them in and put them in the incubator. One hatched yesterday am, I left it in the bator all day and put it under Momma last night. Today I get home from my MD appt. to cheeping--another pip! It's cheeping away as I type. I'm hoping it hatches today so I can put it under Momma tonight. I need to candle the last egg and see if it's a keeper or not. So far, out of the 4 chicks, 3 are pullets and one is a splash, so I can't tell. Loving the sex links! Dark Cornish momma still has 10 chicks, all doing well. Honey's been building me some breeding pens, they're done except the front/gate. I'll try to get pics up when he's done. I stole the cattle panel/hoop house idea from Blooie and modified it some, they're perfect for breeding pens!
