Healing and Peace- Sorry to hear about your goat. My computer keeps shutting off. Will write more when I can figure out my computer. Have to take an online Trach and Vent class and with this computer thing it is making it impossible. Have a great day.

Maybe you've got a virus in the PC? Are you getting a lot of error warnings or a lot of pop ups?

Good luck.

Its a MacBook. I think it is overheating so I have it on ice packs. A real pain in the A.... I am looking for a new desk top. My last one started acting weird so I traded it for some handy man work. My experience is they last so long. My kids load up programs, down load from the internet, etc. The next one they are not coming near.

Pony has rubbed a few inces of mane completely off. I might just roach it. Cause she looks raggedy. Shame cause the reast of it is way long. she also rubs her tail. I am worming her every month now cause of the flies.

I am still trying to figure out my daughter and my X. I am a big procrastonator. If I dont see it , its not there. Cant believe X has been gone for 9 months, daughter for 6. I am sure getting alot of things done.

You said something about your daughter might be doing police work. My late husband my kids dad was the founding father of homeland security. A federal agent. He loved his work and died on the job. He was always trying to help young men that were in trouble to find there way and they really looked up to him. My daugher was with him when he said his last words and took his last breath. He was with her when she took her first breath. I feel very sad without them. My youngest son had a melt down. He cannot accept the fact that his dad will never be there for him again. My mom just keeps sending him gifts and talking to him everyday. But my son said he wants his dad to talk to him and buy him things. I am at a loss.

I'm so sorry Destiny, I know you've been thinking about your daughter and her situation a lot. Your late husband sounds like he was a real "HERO" it takes a special person to connect in such a way with others in the way he did.

That is the first I've ever heard anyone say "He took his first breath while she was with him, and he was with her when she took her first breath". I'm sure it is sad, not even a year isn't too long ago at all. I wish there was something that I could say but you know and I know there really isn't. I bet you just wanted to hold your son when he said that... moments like those you are at loss I'm sure. However, it is good that he is expressing those feelings, as difficult as it is to see and feel for the pain he feels, it is really good that he let's it out.

Oh how I know how they load differant programs and it seems the computers then get full of the virus's.. I had to put my foot down when mine were young because they were always messing with the computer and I had more problems with the computers when they were young... I'm sure it is from all the downloading but I didn't think Mac got the virus's.. I had one for a long time but gave it to one of the boys when he left for college.

Will talk to you soon, and about the pony in a bit, I have to get some work done now.. Peace to you, Destiny I know your thinking about your daughter a lot, and that's all so natural considering all.

Healing and Peace- Here it is 7:32 pm and too hot to ride. Will have to ride in the mornings. I have to face some serious studying that I need to get done before Tuesday. It is mostly review. My sister calls about some dream she had about someone dying of Lymphoma. She thinks it is going to come true. I hope not. How is your sons nose? What year is he in Med school? I really admire anyone that can put up with that grueling schedule. When I was young I could handle all that not any more. I hope tomorrow I can find the wisdom to write my daughter a letter she will understand.

I keep reminding myself to stop and smell the roses. My son found a package of seeds got a cup put horse manure in it, planted the seeds and I will be darned if they didnt sprout. He is a real farmer at heart.

To answer your question about my son's nose, the infection is completely gone.

No offense to anyone that might read this but here is the joke that his Jewish Doctor told him.. "What happens when a Jewish or Italian man walks into the wall with a woody? Answer - he brakes his nose... I couldn't believe it when he told me that the doc told him this joke.. but he has a great sense of humor so no big deal!

So far it appears he won't need the surgery because the infection was truly what was making his nose appear so crooked, the x-ray pretty much shows two clean brakes so looks like it will heal straight.

He is going into his 3rd year of school... he get's a bit frustrated trying to shuffle school, work, and being a typical 22 year old, but all and all he seems to fit it all into his schedule. He's a bit short this month for his rent because he had to take off so much time with the infection so I told him I'd help him out this month. He's a great kid but sometimes they all need a hand here or there... he didn't ask us for help with his rent this month but I could tell he was getting stressed about it, and his twin told us that he was short this month. So my husband told him not to worry about it, and that we would make up the differance he is short.

About your son and the seeds, can you send him down here, everytime I plant anything they seem to die, a green thumb I'm not!

Not too sure what else you can do to stop the pony from rubbing her mane off, it might be good if you just pulled it. It will help keep her cooler anyway, and it always grows back too. The rubbing her tail sure sounds like it could be worms.. but your worming her so not sure what it could be other then maybe a habit now.

One of our TB's that we had turned out in Ocala came back with her tail short and pretty bad looking and we found out that a mini-donkey was nibbling on her tail.. how nice huh!

I think once you start writing the words will come to you as to what you really want your daughter to know....and what your feeling. My nephew had called me the other day and he said he was trying to write a letter to the mother of his baby but he said it started off real nice, then once it got to the end and he re-read it he said it wasn't so nice so he said he threw it out, and figured it just wasn't time to write to her yet.

Hope you have a great day, I'm off to the beach.

Healing and Peace- How funny the ENT doc I was going to recommend is Jewish. I have known him for 28 years. Glad to hear your son wont have to have surgery. I was worried about that. Sounds like he has been through enough suffering.

Thank you for diagnosing the pony mane problem. I didnt even consider the heat was buggging her before I read that. Now you have given me permission to cut her mane off.

The tail biting thing is very annoying when it happens to a horse.

The reason why I dread writting my daughter is cause I know her mind is made up and she wont listen. All she wants is to hear is what she is getting out of a situation.

Hope you enjoyed the ocean. I am dreaming about living elsewhere.

Healing and Peace,

I want to thank you again for your efforts at bringing peace.

You wrote about the healthy consequences of caring for animals, and I completely agree with you. I've also found working in the soil to be very therapeutic. You mentioned not having a green thumb, but you might surprise yourself one day.

I began years ago with houseplants and then started gardening. I've completely transformed our backyard, filling it with trees, bushes, and various kinds of flowers. I can spend hours outside, when I feel closest to a Creator. As the years pass and the seasons change, I learn all kinds of lessons about life.

Hope you're doing well. Letting go and focusing on the bigger picture of life, as you counseled. Have my beautiful daughter, my career, home, health, family, and friends, and this board - where I'm consistently learning how to be a better and bigger person, I hope. Thank you for your leadership.

Peace and love to all of us!

Sincerely,

Mary

Ahhh Mary you don't have to thank me for anything, really!!! I know your a kind person, and you have shown that to me a few times in the short time of being on the site.

I love working outside and tending to the plants.. All the tropical plants do great.. but that's because they are pretty hardy to begin with I think, it's the veg's..and garden plants that I just seem to have such bad luck with....this year I picked a differant location on my property to plant them and boy they did worse this year then ever before.. the good thing is I can start all over again with the whether we have...I'm pretty sure it's just the direct sunlight all day that they were getting, maybe just too bright, and may have burnt the plants.

I really should get a book or even read up on planting online first though. The egg plant is doing great, but that's it, as far as the veg's.... we have pineapple plants and they do great althought they seem to thrive with the direct sunlight, I started with them about 7 years ago now, and always have fresh pineapple in which we can go out anytime of the year and grab one to eat. Which is great. I wish, I could say the same for the veg's., and the rest of the plants.

I'm going to give it another try but like I said, I'm going to pick a differant location and read up on planting a garden. Maybe I'll be asking you for some tips, and Destiny's son as well!

Peace to you, Healing and Peace

Destiny,

You know, and most of us know that it is the one that is giving the money to an addict that the addict wants to see, talk to, and be around.... So you know it isn't about you, or your daughter knowing what is best for the baby when it's born. Your daughter most likely isn't going to tip the boat that is providing the money that's for sure especially where she is, and may be for a while.

Saying that much you also know that only last for so long before they burn out the one they're recieving the money and care packages from. If you don't mind me asking is the father of the baby an addict as well?

Healing and Peace- The babies daddy was convicted of Drug Trafficking. I tried to call him and he told me he didnt want to talk to me and hung up. He has hit my daughter before. I dont like him. But I wrote my daughter a letter and told her that if she doesnt care about what I want which is to take care of my grandson then I have to leave the situation in her hands and let her go. Told her if she needed anything then to contact the drug trafficker and his mom. Told her when she gets out if she looses her baby, gets beat up or thrown out by this man not to contact me cause I have had enough. I doubt it will sink in.

I cut the ponies mane off. She looked very happy. something must be in it that is bothering her. Now I can put medicine in it like flea and tick shampoo and dandruff shampoo. Then I find in her Pee hole an electric wire??? So I called my handy guy and left a message.

Still havent studied for my job. My computer shuts off and the program they sent me audio doesnt work. I have been reviewing a med surg book I have in the mean time.

Happy Trails.

Destiny

I'm so sorry Destiny, I know this your daughter's situation is difficult on you, knowing she is having a baby soon.

Not too long ago I had to call DCF on my nephew and his girlfriend because they were both using drugs and I could clearly see they weren't capable while on drugs to care for her. Nor was she safe in their care. If you know for sure the Daddy is still using you may end up finding this is an option for you to make sure the your grandson is cared for.... Here they don't just take the baby, they always try to get a family member to take the child in, as it is best for the child to remain with a capable family member of the family.

Does pony by chance have a fungus, I thought it about it last night and that could be causing her to itch her tail and her neck.

Will talk to you soon, H & P

I called the prison this morning and spoke to her counselor. He said she applied for a program where she can keep her baby with her. But first the sent a form to her county of residence to CPS to see if she could do that. Considering the fact she has lost 2 kides on 2 different occasions due to her drug use I doubt it. But I will know for sure by Friday. I also called Child Protective Services in her county. I left a message with Child Protective Services in the county where she is in prison as well. I am going to get adoption papers and ask that the baby be signed over to me. This story has more twists and turns than a stripe on a candy cane. I am through discussing it with her for now. She lives in a world of lies and fantasy.

I am going to try Head and Shoulders on the ponies mane. Still havent studied for work.

I am glad you had the sense to call CPS on your niece. The poor children cant do it themselves. CPS will send kids to family members but only after finger printing, background checks and home visits.

Destiny,

Your unborn grandson is blessed to have someone looking out for his well being. I understand the lies, and fantasy world they can live in... I'm glad you called CPS and are trying to protect the baby from the harmful effects bring raised by people using drugs. There may be a day that both of the parents (your daughter and the daddy) may decide they are done with the drugs, and it is certainly possible for your daughter to get clean, but in the mean time you wanting to make sure your grandson is cared for is to be commended.

About your pony, does she have any tiny bumps under where her mane where it would fall on either side of her neck, in the croup, girth area, or from her coronet band up to her knees? If she does in any or all of those areas, it could be, and more then likely it's a fungus, sometime you might even see them on the face. I've used Vicks vapor rub on fungus and it gets better, as long as it isn't a severe case that hasn't gotten out of control and is all over her body. There are a lot of differant shampoo's that they make to treat fungus but sometimes if it is really bad you need antibiotics as well because like in humans a fungus can become a skin infection. If it's not bad, and you just see little tiny bumps here and there in any of those area's the vicks will smother the fungus and it allows it to heal. It also helps soothe the itching at the same time. You don't have to use a lot of it at all, you can just use a Q-tip to touch the bumps with it, and that would be enough. However you have to do it everyday after baths. It takes about a week before you will see some improvement. Then you just use the vicks every other day, for a a few days, and it should all heal up.

When do you have to take the test?

Meant to say, under her mane, where it would fall on either side or even on both sides of her neck.

Healing and Peace- Hi. I decided to get an attorney today. I am filing a guardianship case against my daughter to get custody of the baby when he is born. Her husband is nominating me. I am travelling 500 miles to the prison this weekend to talk her into signing him over to me. I dont really give a damn to hear any more about her hair brained plans. Call me unsupportive but I cant back her up. Once the document is signed by a judge I will sent it to the hospital, prison and CPS. The county will investigate my back ground and home so CPS will accept it.

I had seen sores inside the center of the mane that was rubbed off. It was bright pink with crusts. I dont see it anywhere else. She just looks happier with the mane off. She bowed her little head, closed her eyes and rubbed her head on us in appreciation.

Destiny,

I feel your being very supportive in behalf of your unborn grandchild, you don't have to be supportive of your daughter's "idea's, hair brained plans, or her world of lies and fantacy's", I certainly understand your concern is for the baby. Your daughter one day may wake up, and sometimes it takes exactly what you are doing in order to protect your grandchild for them to open their eyes to the fact that your not putting up with her dysfunctional thinking, and/or actions.

I know you said the jail is a long drive for you to make, so be careful, and take care of you while making this trip.

I hope you both are doing well and happy.

Healing & Peace- I had to work all day. I will have to work every Sunday. Visiting is only on Sat. & Sunday so it will be tricky trying to figure it out.

My X wrote me a letter to send to his daughter. Just more drama that I dont need. So I need to sit down and write him a letter telling him not to contact me anymore. He even wrote in the letter that he knew I didnt want to forward the letter to his daughter. Shows you how inconsiderate he is. He gets out of prison in 2 months and I have been putting telling him not to contact me ever again off.

My job gave me the info I couldnt download on my computer to read so I could pass the test.

How is your job and horse back riding going?

Caraway- Hello stranger. My daughter is in state prison and pregnant. I am just going out of my way to get involved in it. Maybe I shouldnt. I have enough on my plate. I need to tell my X to stay out of my life and think I finally have the nerve to do it. He wrote me a letter about his daughter who hasnt had anything to do with him in a few years and that was enough to push me to my breaking point.
