I just recieved the dreaded results.....

.......and it's not good. I have Sarcoidosis in my lungs. I go next week for a CT scan of my chest for a better look at how extensive the involement. Robin works very closely, in ICU, with a great pulmonologist and is going to talk to him about my case. I will have to go see him soon. I went to the eye Dr yesterday and had a very thorough exam and my eyes are not involved. Thank You Lord!! I also get a new pair of the coolest glasses coming next week...afterall something good has to come from all of this, right??? I already wear glasses and was long overdue for an upgrade!!

Here's my new deck that my wonderful husband built me last week. The pictures don't do it justice!!
I plan on getting a lot of use out of this!!!

And here is a pic of the new paint job on the garage. Remember it was blue...yuck. I still have a little trimwork to do but we did most of it last week. Also some window work to be done. Thanks to Leslie!!! She was such a good help. She just shimmied right on up in that loader bucket like it was nothing for 3 days of painting. I was in it for 2 days and I am scared of heights!!! While we were up there we spotted a big black snake crossing the road but our big ole protective man took care of us. I was still scared though even being up so far off the ground!!

I just love this picture of my harvest!!
Life on the farm is very busy these days. Milking 2 goats or should I say 1 1/2 goats. Violet has been very sick with an overload of parasites. I know you are thinking that I should not have goats if I can't do any better with them than this, but we had wormed her the way we were taught and it wasn't enough and they had an opportunistic time right after the birth of the baby. She ended up at the vets office 3 days after the birth. She went off feed and is barely on her way back now. I am so afraid that she will dry up on me but I am really working with her. I only get about a cup each milking from her but almost a half gallon from Saphira each milking. With Saphira we wormed her as soon as she kidded so we could nip it in the bud with her and the parasites and it seems to be working well. I can start to keep her milk tomorrow!!!! Boy do I have plans for it too!!!!
