The wind is howling and the rain is beating against the windows – again. The whole week has been like this and it’s really getting old.
Dark and dreary, rainy and cold – it was nicer in March than the last day in April! That’s why I made a trip to my favorite greenhouse yesterday – Countryside Greenhouse, Orchard, IA on Hwy. 218, 5 miles north of Floyd. I had a nice reprieve from the nasty weather and now when the weather turns nice, I can go right outside and start planting.
For those wondering about Faye, I am learning that kidney disease is a continuing process of highs and lows. Last week she didn’t eat for 5 days and I thought we would lose her by Sunday. This week she is acting almost normal. She loves to go to the barn and I have discovered several more foods she likes. The toxins that go through her body instead of being eliminated by the kidneys make her feel very sick and we all know how we feel about eating when we are nauseous and just too sick to care. Because the kidneys are not functioning properly, they are not removing the toxins and that makes her feel very very sick. Our journey continues. Thanks for your prayers.
