BB my prayers are that your life will  calm down, there's a Chinese curse,( so I have been told ) -- May you live in interesting times.  I think that you are way overdue for  time that is relaxing.

Oh Barb it just seems that one thing is sorted then another turns up for you to sort. I feel for you, hopefully you'll take time for you. (((Hugs)))Hopefully Katie will calm down,it is hard on her and you and your Mom.
Today the sun was hot so I did some sun printing, was quite pleased with the results.

BB, I'm so sorry for all you and Katie are going through. I hope it all works out well.

Thanks BJ.  9 hours later.... I'm off to get her.  Very thankful for the tollway built about 10 years ago that makes the trip to the  hospital door to door in 30 minutes.  20 of which are on the roads getting to the toll way entrance!!!

Oh BB - my heart goes out to you, and especially to Katie. How sad that she panics so easily. I am sure you are the calm in all of this to help her get through it all. What a blessing you are to your family. I can imagine how worn you are getting, but I know you keep going and are doing what you need to right now, just be sure you take care of YOU too -- it is not selfish it is survival!  HUGS my dear friend.

Ally, the wombats need to be quite a lot bigger before she can put them out in the runs.  By the time they get out there, she pulls back on contact with them so they aren't too attracted to humans and then they get released into the bush or a sanctuary depending on the level of independence they have gained.

Just had a quick run to the hospital with Katie.  One of the sents came out completely and the other came out about 5 cm more than when she left hospital last Wednesday.  SO.... they admitted her at 5 pm, had an x ray at 7 pm, we left at 8 pm and before we got home, the surgeon had rung her to say he'd seen the x ray and the stent that is still in is in the right kidney and seems to be doing ok, so no need for him to fix it under sedation tomorrow.  (I think he was going to do it in his lunch hour!!)  SO......... just need to go back and get her at 9am!  The level of drama, tears and worry packed into the last 8 hours should be packaged and reused NEXT week!!!!  We just can't get through to her that she dosn't need to panic until there is something to panic about.  Never mind.  Tomorrow is also a day!

That's really neat BB. Thanks for the link.

That is a different wombat which I held isn't it? So Sue is still doing the wombat rearing. Does she have the pens outside working now as she was hoping to put the owls she rears.

Aw! The owl died! He was so fluffy when we saw him. Will check out the site you have posted.
