Hi everyone! Happy Mother's Day! I hope all of you are having a great weekend and getting to spend some quality time with your families and friends! Things have been busier than usual around the farm the past few weeks. On April 16th my little friend Missy started having seizures. She was given a new flea medicine on the 14th, Comfortis. We are not sure if that is what started her seizures. She was not having any health issues prior to the flea medicine. Seizures are listed as a possible but not usual side effect. She has had a pretty rough time of it. The seizures went away for 4 days after we started her on phenobarbital, then they came back worse than ever. Continuous seizures, so we had to rush her to Chattanooga to the Animal Hospital. They added Keppra and upped her dose of phenobarbital. She has been seizure free for 6 days now and is finally adjusting to the medications. She couldn't walk for almost a week, which is a side effect of the meds. She is so happy to be able to walk , stand and get around without having to be carried. I am very happy to have her able to walk. She has gained weight from 13.5 lbs to 16 lbs! Another side effect. We are not sure yet if they are going to try to get her off the medicine after the flea medicine wears outs of her system or wait awhile. I am just so happy to see her happy! Since she rescued me almost 5 years ago, I do not know her health history prior to that time!
I have finally had a little time to work on some new Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses blocks! I never tire of designing these! I have also added a "Starter kit" to the ETSY shop. The kit includes everything you need to get started with these blocks! I decided to use my first block in the kit! It is still one of my favorites.
I hope yall have had time for some stitching! Happy Mother's Day!
Thank yall for stopping by!
