A Call For A Medic

It was a call for a medic this morning. Our old goat ( well she isn't that old but she is abit old) Granny May had broke her leg. Mom checked all the goats this morning and sure enough she found Granny May with a fractured bone.

Dad cut up some splints from his wood. I guess you could say that I was the nurse and Mom was the Doctor. I ran inside to find some good holding tape. I couldn't find any so I was going to ask Dad where some tape was.

Dad had some in his pocket. I ran and got the splints and tape. Dad and I were having a conversation about the situation and Mom in the goat pen was yelling "this is an emergency" I gave the splints and tape to Mom so that she could put them on each side of the leg and the tape will hold them together. The first set of splints were to short and they weren't wide enough.

Mom said that I had to ask Dad to double the size and make it wider. The request was promptly explained to dad, as I was running back and forth back and forth to Mom and Dad. We finished the leg and it looked very nice. She is able to walk on it but she's limping.

I did all the dishes this morning with abit of help from Mom. She dried a few dishes while Jesse came up and grabbed the case of water that we had bought yesterday.
Today I am making Brownies. The Dynna boys are known to eat them ALOT, and fast.

I am going to hide a few so that I can save them for company or later after the boys are gone.
