Morgan tested positive for anaplasmosis (and she has Lyme disease) when she went for her heart worm test.
So, she has 84 pills to take... 4 a day for 21 days.
Ticks in the woods... that's for sure. We all get tick bites and have been lucky until now.
The chickens are locked up today and probably tomorrow since we are supposed to have two days of lots of rain. The ticks can play while the chickens are away.
I haven't been posting about the rain and hail and generally cold weather because it's making me sad... after three more days of rain we are supposed to have some sunny days. That would be nice.
I have been trying to remember the words to old rain rhymes that have been running around in my brain this morning:
Rain, rain go away,
Come again another day.
Little Callie wants to play.
It's raining, it's pouring,
The old man is snoring.
He fell out of bed, and bumped his head
And can't get up in the morning.
There was a rhyme about rain going to Spain, but I can't remember that one. I always liked the rhyme about not getting out of bed on rainy days. Makes sense to me. Morgan is asleep. I want to be.
