Jake had to reenter Mayo Clinic Methodist Hospital on Thursday night.   The incision was infected.   They reopened and cleaned the site on Friday morning.    Now he is recovering in the hospital probably until Tuesday.     We left home with no plans of being away for very long.    I came back this afternoon--two  whole days later.    That shower sure felt good tonight. 

I am going back Sunday evening so that I will be there when the doctors return on Monday to make sure I know how to handle the new situation.   When it rains, it pours.

Versatile Nursing Assistants

I can even get help from the nursing assistants.   I  got three of them to help me.    They go out to help feed the cow in the cow hospital.   Then they go along to feed the rams who are confined to a small area together getting to know Bailleys.    Jake, the real patient, caught us coming back to the house to let them off before I put the cart away.    Who could ask for anything more?
