Stories from real life and then pictures of chickens. Who does that? Oh, yeah. I do. Lol..and I have special chicken and goat feeding shoes….so this title po(o)pped into my head.
My dad went into the ER yesterday with chest pain. He had three episodes of pain in the last five days. The first time after walking for 2 1/2 hours while my mom went shopping. The second time after raking leaves and doing yard work for hours up at the lake. *eyeroll* When he had the pains yesterday whilst taking it easy he thought he should go into ER. It was scary, but they got him in fast, hooked up to monitors, drew blood for tests and started watching him. Gave him nitro for the pain. It only worked for a few minutes. To make the story shorter he stayed overnight, had a stress/echo-cardiogram this morning and nothing looks amiss with his heart. Further bloodwork shows a probably inflammation of the sternum. He’s home, now and must rest. He hates to rest and he hates to be sick. He’s all hooked up to monitors in the hospital, feeling terrible, freezing, shivering so hard he shook an IV out of his arm….and he’s saying “This is stupid.” Meaning “I have always been in control, why can’t I control this?” And apologizing for inconveniencing mom and me. Phoooey. I told him “Dad, this is what we do for each other. You would do it for me, I am doing it for you.”
*Shakes head* Dads. Ya gotta love ’em. He’s home now with pain meds, and antibiotics in case an infection was starting along with the inflammation.
So…here’s how I relax. Taking pics and posting them. Of chickens. These are the eight Lemonpepper babies, with their names. Hoooo, boy. 😛
Ok, that’s it for today. Curry is the hardest one to get a picture of. She is very shy. But the feather patterns are amazing. Never fear, I won’t give up trying to get pictures! Ha! 😉
