THE LAND OF OZ
Good grief! Didn't realize it's been 5 months since I last wrote in this blog. Lots of things have taken place since the last entry.
Gary was on some heavy chemo and it was making him so very sick. I was afraid it was going to kill him before the cancer did. But, it put the cancer in remission. He chose to stop taking the chemo after the PET scan showed no uptake. We both know the cancer is still there and will rear it's ugly head at some point in the future. We will enjoy whatever amount of time we have left together.
We decided to downsize and bought 22 acres in SE Kansas. This place is just 3 hours from family in Mo and just minutes from Rainbow Meadows Equine rescue. We have become good friends with Karen and David. The four of us have a lot in common and enjoy each other's company.
The place in OK is sold already. Thank the good Lord. We now have a much smaller house for me to take care of. The 3 dogs are here as well as Miss Kitty and Pepper the silly goat. I placed one of the horses we had in Ok and we brought the 2 blind girls as well as our original 4 horses. Of course all my donkeys are here too. We had a huge barn built, it's not finished on the inside but we will do that this Spring. The house needs some finish work also but we are old hands at remodeling, lol.
All in all, we are very happy here.......well, we could have done without the snow we got last night. But, the pond can use the water.
