Saturday Daisy Update

Daisy is still doing okay and seems to continue to improve, albeit, very slowly.  She’s still on antibiotics, and I give her a shot of bovine tylenol when she starts to droop and drag her feet.  Seems like she can go about two and half days one one dose of that.  I’m pretty confident that she’s going to survive this.  I don’t worry about finding her in a bad way when I leave the house in the morning.  She’s lost a lot of weight and is very thin, too, but her appetite is really picking up.  I think she’ll be back to her fat and sassy self in no time.  (She’s not really sassy.  She’s very gentle.  In fact, she’s the one the children learn to milk, because she’s so gently.  She is usually fat, though.  Maybelle, on the other hand, is sassy.)

About Jennie Cooper

I'm the mother of eight children, the wife of a retired soldier, and a newly minted farmer. I spend my days fairly productively, home educating our children, raising large quantities of food for several families, and volunteering in our community. I read entire novels a page at a time in the comfort of my bathroom. I tell people I'm Catholic just because they find it so shocking. I think there's nothing so exciting as a thunderstorm coming in. It doesn't bother me at all that my dog barks outside my bedroom window all night. And I rather enjoy being 40. I didn't think I would, but 40 is pretty good.

    Happy 4 month birthday beautiful and precious Evelyn. I am asking Mommy to give you kisses and hugs from a Grandma who wishes so very much that she could meet you and hold you and kiss you and just plain old snuggle a precious little bundle of joy.
    Love you Evie,

    Evelyn is just perfect. What a beautiful baby!

    I am glad Daisy is doing better, and I hope you are all better soon, too. It’s hard to be the mama and have everyone depending on you when you’re not feeling well.

    Hi! We just finished listening to the second Benedict Society book. The kids loved it. My only complaint would be that throughout the book, they talked about the importance of not being like the bad guys, who stop at nothing to achieve their goal, no matter who gets hurt. But at a crucial moment, Benedict himself betrays someone in his trust. We talked about it afterwards, but I felt they could have left that out of the story and preserved Mr. Benedict’s good character. There’s my two cents!
