Heart still palpitating, sometimes hard. Need to get an appointment made soon.

YES! Get it checked! We need you as does your dairy!

Do I have to drive up there and drag you to the doc? Don't make me do that.

Had to get a freshly calved heifer with heifer calf in between loads just a few minutes ago.   Went to get the calf first.  It was sitting up like normal, but then I saw blood on it's back leg.  Lifted it up, and found something ate a hole into it's leg.  Big as a tennis ball out of the muscle. So I went to take momma to the barn first.

Momma gave me fits getting her in, but she made me mad, so she DID go in!  Going back to get the calf.  I may be able to sew it up, as the calf otherwise looks fine.  Lots of antibiotics if it does make it.

Broke the large needle stitching her up.  Got 4 stitches in, but needs at least 3 or 4 more.  Teresa is looking for another large needle.    Put calf in trailer to come on up for more stitches, and she stood right up!  There is hope!

4 more stitches in the calf, antibiotics given, fly spray applied all over calf & it's stall, and wound ointment over the wound.  Need to give her some dexamethazone  for swelling, regular antibiotics shots, and keep a CLOSE eye on the wound for any fly problems.  The calf took a bottle right away too, so all I have to worry about is infection.  Sure is hard dealing with all this, AND having to keep up with pushing/packing the silage, but I'm caught up.  Came in for a tiny break.

  BTW....after a dismal morning, I'm feeling much better.  Got a doc appointment for Tuesday.  :thumbs:

I was hoping you would not get an appointment because after I drug you to the doctor I was going to steal your front end loader

My work day is over, and I don't plan to do anything more other than rest.  Done enough for the day.  If it wasn't so hard to get at the starter on the 2nd diesel, I'd do it, but no, not tonight.  My remainder of the day will consist of a shower, supper, then a recliner, besides time spent in this office chair chatting with you guys.

 And the part eaten calf is resting comfortably in it's stall. Sure hope the poor little thing pulls through this.  I'll do all I can for it.

 

And Willie, keys are in it!  :D

Rest up! You need it after all you have done. I wouldn't be concerned if you took an evening away from here and did whatever!
