Well I'm still running back and forth to spend the day with John and Suzanne is holding down the home front and taking care of the donkeys, cats, feeding John's wild birds and must not forget Charlie, an old heeler someone probably dropped off in the neighborhood and he managed to find the rescue. He'd deaf as a post, cataracts on both eyes, and has settled in quite nicely. We'd like to take him into the vet for evaluation, but haven't had the time yet. I doubt that he is chipped, he looks healthy and since Suzanne has been taking care of him, he seems to think she's a pretty good friend. Suzanne put out flyers in the neighborhood, but no one has asked about him. He'll have to stay in the dog run, the cats would have a meltdown if he came in the house......!!! LOL
I think John is doing good, of course he doesn't. He went into a rehab center yesterday, in fact the nurses at Banner were thrilled he was going into one of the top 2 rehab places in Tucson. He had only been up once in the hospital, and yesterday when he got to rehab they didn't do anything except put him into bed and ask him a lot of questions. Today was a different story.
He had a shower and stood up by his bed twice and was pretty steady on his feet, although he complained a lot. No cast, or brace or anything, just bandages and they are pretty minimal.
I don't know how long he will be there, but if determination counts for anything he be doing as much as he can to get out of there I'm sure.
Boaz is one of the donkeys that has a problem with summer sores, fly damage and anything else that can cause sores that the flies love. Speaking of flies is everyone else having a bigger fly problem than usual? They are absolutely horrible this year. I hung 2 new fly traps out in the last 3 days. When I got home from Tucson tonight I checked on the 5 bags I have hanging. The new ones are small only suppose to hold 20,000 flies. The one I hung 3 days ago if full, the one I hung yesterday is about half full.......!!!! Can't imagine what it would be like around here without the fly traps and the predator wasps, that parasite fly eggs, which kills the developing fly maggot..........!!! YAY............!!!
