Back Home

After a bad case of pneumonia which required surgery to drain the infection and a week long hospital stay, my Mom is finally out of the hospital. It will be many weeks before she is back to her old self, so she is staying with my sister is Missouri. I went down to the hospital in Columbia, Missouri, last weekend, and stayed with her until she was released on Thursday. I dropped her off at my sister’s, and then headed home late Thursday evening. It was so good to get home to Harland, Kitty, and Muffy.

Chaos had occurred in my absence:



But toliet and paper towel rolls were soon turned the correct way and all was well.

Thank you for all your prayers and good wishes. They mean a lot to me and my Mom.

I’ll be back soon with updates on both Daisy and Donald, plus other doings here on the farm.



Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    Oh well, sounds like he has other great qualities! Or was it the kitties who played with the TP? Hmmm……

    Really…I’m so glad to hear your Mom is doing better, and glad she has you and her sister to care for her while she was sick and is now hopefully on the road to recovery.

      Exactly Alica. I got home about midnight, but I got the TP roll fixed before I went to bed. 🙂

    I’m so happy to hear that your dear mother is doing better! I prayed for her healing, and will continue to do so!

    Oh for goodness’ sake! How could he have lived with that TP roll backwards!! That’s just unreal!! Unless… Could it have been? No! Not Muffin! I hope Harland doesn’t mind our teasing!

    Have a Happy and Blessed Easter!!

      Anything is possible with Muffin..would’t surprise me one bit if he was responsible.

      Thanks Jeanne, and Happy Easter to you and yours!
