Hold On

I am willing Lucy to hold on for just a little while longer.  My old girl was down last evening and I thought it might be the end.  Hurriedly putting the other goats in their stalls, I went to check on her.  She had struggled to her feet and was slowly making her way to her room.  Good old girl.  I could only spend time petting and sweet talking her; there's nothing else I could do.  There is no good time for the death of a favored animal, but this is an absolutely awful time.  With company coming today.... 

Even with advance preparations, I'm never as ready as I should be...let's face it...for much of anything.  There's still a lot to do before my son and his daughter and my nephew and his wife get here.  I would do anything not to go to the barn today.  Hold on, Lucy.

I'm so, so sorry that you AND Lucy both have to go thru this. Hopefully it will be painless for her when the time comes...and not totally heart-wrenching for you, but I know it will be.
