Who's Your Daddy

Well Spunky Brewster's not the only little one around here. We've had quite a few babies born recently. Luckily, all were born without problems and momma's are good.  Fingers crossed the remaining cows will continue on this streak. One bottle baby is enough.  But Spunky is fun and doing well.

This is my favorite. Our only bull thus far so he better buck!


Here's the husband's favorite.  She's a cutie.


And our niece's heifer has a lil bull.


It's always fun to watch the babies play in the pasture. One of my favorite things.

In other news, the husband has an appointment with Dr Ward Thursday morning. It will be the first time we've seen him since he gave us the husband's diagnosis. And that feels like FOREVER ago. He'll get X-rays of his hip and we'll see how the bones are doing. 

Then next Monday the husband does his lab work for Dr DeLa Casa, his medical oncologist. Our appointment with him is a week from this Friday. The husband was told that Dr D is leaving so the meeting may be with the other oncologist at the clinic. Hate that Dr D is leaving. He is awesome and so thorough. We'll miss him.  But they said he was commuting from San Antonio daily.  That's crazy!   Just crappy that they leave.  The new radiation oncologist is cool though. So I'm sure the new medical oncologist will be fine. Or we'll just have to go see Dr D in San Antonio. ;)  We'll keep ya updated with what we learn at the upcoming appointments. 

One last thing, March is Myeloma Awareness Month! So I'll leave you with this fact.  Multiple Myeloma is the second most common blood cancer, after non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and represents approximately 1 percent of all cancers.

And don't forget about my MMRF Endurance event in November. Raising money and awareness for myeloma research! You can donate and support us here:

Thanks for all your continued support and prayers! We're blessed beyond measure.

Aww... I've been seeing more and more calves in the fields and I wondered how your herd was doing! Such cuties!!

(And sorry to hear about the husband's doctor, I'll keep my fingers crossed that somebody even better replaces him!)
