sigh...little tom hobbit needs a lap today so i can get some work done. it is harder to be mean and just boot him off when personally i don't feel like moving anyway....ahhh tom, you may just become an excuse. tom is starting to scare me, he is way too much like peter and after all of these months, i still miss little peter alot.
jess is a worry right now, she is a chronic URI carrier. she started with another cold late last week and was started back on her usual meds. both julie and i thought she looked not too bad on sunday and it seemed that the meds were doing their thing. but monday morning when i went in to see her, she was an absolute mess. her sinus's are draining purulent discharge and her eye looks like someone poked it with a stick. i switched her oral meds and added a steriod antibiotic eye ointment instead of just plain antibiotic ointment and maybe this morning she looks marginally better and maybe that eye is slightly less inflamed. geez, usually when a resistence is built up to long term meds there is some warning, like not getting better, not jessie's version of of plain "holy crap!' anyway, we are going to be in trouble if jess's URI continues to build resistence, we barely keep her managed as it is, we will be sunk when the meds stop to work. luckily her appetite is still really good.
i just got back from a quick morning visit to say hi to all of the guys in the barn, swinger was less swingy, spritely's leg is looking good today, gideon's eye looks better too. ellie wanted a quick belly rub before she tackles her outside the barn day, percy was hoping i brought a second bottle, gee sorry babe. and tunie was contentedly eating her breakfast and waiting for everyone to get out of her barn. it is so happy and peaceful out there in the morning.
better get moving, i have alot to get done today.
