She is now back 100%, working and driving. They did not have to shave her whole head. There's a scar, but her hair hides it. My primary care Dr. also had a similar tumor removed a couple years ago, he's also back 100%.

Hoping for the best for your daughter!
Thank you. They are going to operate early Monday morning. which is a good thing. Nothing is worse than laying in your bed and your surgery is scheduled for the afternoon. She has had a severe case of Alopecia a couple of times and lost all her hair. So she has a collection of wigs. And I think all of this will bring it on again. Right now they have her heavily medicated to keep her calm. I am tryinjg to keep a on my face.

I better not let any doctors see Myrtle's eggs.
Thank you for the laugh. Are the pullets from Mrs Broody's babies? Are they laying eggs already?

This morning we are going to go for a walk and then this afternoon we are going to prop ourselves on the lounge and watch The Lorax in 3D

No--these are the 5 Lohmanns I bought on July 23rd to increase the egg count since the Rhode Island Reds we bought earlier in July are only laying 3/5 eggs/day (there are 10 of them) and so many of my friends want eggs. Miss Broody's batch are only 2 months old--they hatched the 17th of June. I will have a funny story just for you, Addie, either later tonight or tomorrow morning--or maybe I should wait until Monday morning to give you a giggle to distract you during your daughter's surgery.

I am looking forward to Monday. I will definitely need a laugh by then.

Monday's Chicken Chronicles will be dedicated to you, Addie. I'll do my best to write it in such a way you will laugh, and hopefully, throughout the day, chickle and smile, oops, chuckle and smile.
