Hi White Beard,
Yes, it sounds like you are a very proud father! Your daughter's hobby farm sounds great! I'd love to have one some day. My dream is to have horses, but I'd also like some goats, and maybe a cow, not to mention the dogs & cats. I could never eat one of my animals though! I get way too attached! My uncle keeps pestering me to keep a cow for him on my future farm that he could slaughter & I refuse. I keep telling him that if he wants to do that, then he has to keep it elsewhere! I may have mentioned it before, but not in a while: I am a biology major, and I now officially have only one year left of undergrad! (It doesn't seem possible!) Then hopefully, I'm off to veterinary school. I am definitely going to take at least a year off after I graduate in order to cope with everything going on, but then plan on continuing so that I can fulfill my dream! I have wanted to be a vet for as long as I can remember, and really the only thing that potentially stands in my way now is this eye. I'd love to be a large animal vet, I have a really passion for working out on the farms, although I'd love to work with any & all animals.
No new news about
my eye lately. I am still waiting to hear back from my doc about
the conference he went to & whether that generated any new ideas. If I don't hear back from him by the middle of the week, I am just going to try & make an appointment, so that he'll have to talk to me!
Still waiting to hear back from a consulting PM as well & then I am seeing a rheumatologist at the end of next month, although I doubt that anything will come of that. We've got some other ideas on board as well, but they are all basically acts of desperation that I am hoping we won't have to pursue. Things have really not been so great for me lately, but I suppose that is nothing new. Hopefully with the increases in the fentanyl patch that we decided upon, we'll find out once & for all whether or not my brain lacks the proper opioid receptors or I just don't absorb the medication, although unfortunately, I suspect it is the former. I wish I wasn't so hard to treat!
