The morning sky
The doctor’s diagnosed Dad with pneumonia. The medications did not seem to help much. Back to the hospital he went. Definitely has fluid on his lungs, now concerned about congestive heart failure. Hoping to hear results from tests this morning.

Scarlet and Pittypat now are down to one bottle a day. Weaning time makes for fussy babies don’t you know.

Brutus the 3-week-old pup now has his eyes open and is eating like a champ.
Again excuse the poor quality photo, Brutus is so dark black you have to get so close to see his eyes, which makes for blurry pic with el cheapo camera.
According to the calendar Barb and Isabella (dairy goats) have 4 weeks to go before kidding.

Don’t forget -

I hope your dad is feeling better soon!

Thanks for updating us. You and your family are in my prayers, as I know it's very difficult to go through all these ups and downs when there is a medical issue. I hope your Dad can knock this back soon. Are you planning on going to the Fiber Festival? I hope to, so might see you there.
