1. The still very much limping bear bait has another appointment with the veterinary orthopedic surgeon for next wednesday.
2. Josh is still sick. Coughing, stomach pains, nausea, red eye, pale, some kind of new hearing over sensitivity, and most surprising, very little appetite. I mean, Josh is my kid, we try to eat away anything and everything. (Might be a little jealous over that last symptom)
3. The husband. Well, the good thing is that he is foloowing doctor's orders. I admit I did not have much faith in him. He has surpassed my expectations. He is stayng on his not burned butt. He is keeping his french fried footsies elevated. The left foot appears to be healing. I called the wound care nurse to come back tomorrow to have a look at the right foot. That right foot. It's gonna be the end of me. The right foot has a bigger burned area. It's been worse since the initial blistered stage. I don't like the look of the goop that ends up on the bandage. Sorry if you're quesy now.
I wrote a carefully crafted email/letter to two people at the local audubon society in an attempt to get both an inside scoop on where the dead birds are in this area and also maybe some free publicity in an exchange for allowing them to use my images. Tomorrow I'll follow up with a phone call. Fingers crossed!
