    Absolutely! And medical battles are always easier to fight and deal with than the idea of something totally unknown going on inside your body! Prayers!

    Rachel, I am sorry you are going through this. [​IMG]
    I have just gotten on after a week or so, I don't mean to ignore anyone.

    I had a bad experience with the windows ten download. it killed it.
    So my son made me a Frankenstein from several old ones but it is slow, so I am reading but not doing much replying.

    Take care everyone. Blooie that is a great photo.
    I hope she had a great day.

    As always, thank you all so much for the prayers. They went ahead and pulled my PICC line on the advice of the University team. They also changed my antibiotics yet again. I haven't heard CT results but no news is probably good news.

    I hope you're able to get some rest while you're there Rachel...is that a lot to ask from a hospital stay? Maybe, but still I hope.

    Hi All!
    Rachel, Thank you for the updates! Just tell them you missed them sooo much you *had* to come back for a visit! Will be praying for the Master Healer to intervene!
    Meantime here are the promised photos.

    @hbhoffman - I have a question about the no-waste feeders. I can see how it works; no problems there. My question has to do with "dead spots;" places that the food settles into that the chickens can't reach. See, we have huge humidity issues here; for 30 years I have had to deal with rabbit food that goes moldy in 3 days during warm weather, so I wondered - how often do you have to clean this feeder out?

    Hb, thanks for the pics. I've read where folks just shake the bucket each day or so to re-settle the feed, do you have to do that?

    I wish I could come up with a giant size version of this for my horses! They waste so much hay. We've tried big galvanized water troughs and they minimize waste, but invariably a horse puts a foot in one and gets stuck, and cause they're horses it's usually 2am and makes a horrible racket. We've been using hay nets the last few years but they're not always easy to fill and they still waste a lot. Any ideas?
