The Last Two Weeks In Bullets....

Things have been CRAZY around here the last little bit, so I haven't had time to blog. There have been some pretty serious things that have happened, and I had a LONG post about it all that got eaten, but, since I am the only one here with Lauryn for the next ten days it will have to be bullets!!!



  • 3/6 - I got a call from ReHab that Kent had been in a fight and had to be taken to get stitches in the back of his head. He was being teased but he was the aggressor, and didn't win.


  • 3/7 - I went to visit Kent to take his GED books to him, and it ended with him being mad at me because I tried to get him to talk about his part in the incident the night before. He didn't see that he had done anything wrong.


  • 3-8 Keith got told that he had to be in GA for training the 22nd for 2 weeks. This happens every 2 years, but he was in a class locally until the teacher cancelled.


  • 3/8-3/12 - The few days here was filled with doc appointments, and trying to get things squared away for Keith to leave.


  • 3/12 - Kent's team meeting was in the afternoon, and all was going well until we began discussing the fight. He promptly lost his shit when I suggested that he had not in fact worked through his anger/aggression issues as he was trying to tell the docs that he had. The incident had been reported to the head doc as rough horseplay. That bothered me because that is not what I was told happened. So Kent got pissed cussed me out, called me names, and ended up being escorted from the room. I informed the doctors that I was not going to tolerate anymore of these phone calls where I was going to be verbally abused anymore. Needless to say I was pretty pissed of about the whole thing. I told them to tell him not to bother calling me until he got over his crap.


  • 3/14-3/18 - I didn't speak to Kent all week because frankly I didn't want to hear it anymore, not to mention we were still very busy trying to get stuff done around the house and taking care of business that needed to be handled.


  • 3/19 - We got up and were just puttering around the house when the phone rings, it was the Rehab, I almost didn't answer it, but I figured it probably wasn't Kent that early in the morning. Come to find out I was right. I answer the phone to get informed that Kent has been transported to Big City hospital because the night nurse had over dosed his morning meds, and he was having breathing and pulse issues. I swear people I cannot make this shit up!! I freaked out and started screaming at the nurse asking her what in the hell happened, and she told me that someone would call me with more info and then basically hung up. I promptly called the main hospital and found out that he had been taken to the ER to be monitored after they gave him a Narcan injection to reverse the OD. I called Big City, and they told me that he was in the ER, and that the doctors hadn't seen him but they would be keeping him for at least 5 hours, and to call back in a few hours to check on him.... WTF??!! Long story short he went back to Rehab after 7 hours on the monitors and is doing fine now, but Keith and I have been discussing how to deal with this.


  • 3/19 - I live next to a barn that keeps horses. Most of the horses are pasture fed, and for the most part healthy. There is a male there though who has all my heart, and they have been starving him. They had him in a pen alone because all of the other horses are females, and they can't have him knocking anymore of them up, he already got his own mother, but they don't feed him or the girls on a regular basis. The girls have the grass, but all he had was dirt. We actually started going out every other day and taking him hay and water, not to mention picking grass for him. That morning I had gone to look on him and he just didn't look right, and one of the older girls was down in the pasture. I came home crying and told Keith that we had to do something. He told me to call and ask them if they would sell us the horse. I was stunned, he told me just 2 years ago there was not a chance in hell that I was ever going to get a horse. Well I called them, asked and they told me that yes they would sell him to us, and in fact had talked about calling us to see if we wanted to buy him since we had been taking such good care of him. So a few hundred dollars later, I am now the owner of a rescue horse who needs a lot of work. GAH!! He is very underweight and needs a lot of one on one time, but all that matters to me is that he is going to live.


  • 3/21 - Keith left to go out of town, and the 10 days began.


  • 3/22 - I am doing ok with the girl, the horse and the house. The vet is coming out to see Horse tomorrow to give him his shots and to maybe Geld (Neuter) him. I had to get 3 bags of special feed to start getting him fattened up. I am going to be working with a local rehaber to get him back on track.

So that has been my last 2 weeks in review... turned out longer then I thought it was, but I wanted you all to know that I was still here just busy with things. Hugs to all you out there!! Have a great week!!

You, my dear, are an angel! I teared up when I read about the horse. How can someone starve an animal? The next 10 days will fly by!

Carrie said...

Geez girl...I'm worn out just reading all of that!!! So proud of you on saving the horse! I'm an animal lover myself....

I think "busy" may be an understatement! I hope things get better with your son and the time until your DH comes home flies!

I love LOVE horses...have always wanted one, but never able to afford it. That's great that you're taking care of that poor guy. I'd love to see pictures!
