Vet Visit and Other Tidbits
Jesse had his assessment with the vet. It appears that we do not need to remove the fatty tumor (just yet). It's in his groin area, so there is concern that it makes him feel like he has to go, but doesn't.
Just to be sure he doesn't have a urinary infection, we do need to get it tested to rule that out. The last time we took him to get his rabies shot, he swelled up like a balloon. This time (thankfully), he did not.
Unless the tumor starts to grow too fast and too big, surgery can be delayed. The poor guy was super stressed out on the ride there, and he typically is not.
It was high time to make a batch of homemade hot chocolate. The chill in the air yesterday caused me to dress in three layers.
Someone did me a favor, and hit the raccoon (sparing you the picture). It's smack in front of my driveway, out in the center of the country highway. You'd think vultures would have it by now, but nope. I was excited he was gone, but guess what else we have? Two more raccoons living in the big barn. Guess I'll be dealing with that this weekend.
The rest of the week, I am cleaning up around here. My "candle-light dinner" table is scattered with a sewing machine, craft patterns, and magazines. It's time to spruce up and put things back in place.
We are closing in on kidding time. We think Peanut will have two. I have all our kidding supplies ready, except nipples (in case we need them). I like Hoegger, but they are the slowest shippers in the states. I hope they get here in time. The last thing for us to make is a bucket of homemade goat wipes. Then we wait for the little cuties to start popping out.
