Fruit Trees and Kara Update
Now the weather has improved, I have made a start on planting out the fruit trees in what is going to be a mini orchard
There will be a mix of apple pear plums and cherry trees in this area with the bee hives
little seedlings are making an appearance in the green house
Swiss Chard and the free Dianthus seeds that came with my magazine the other week
Another couple of weeks and I will be taking down the insulation in the greenhouse to increase light levels and just put seedlings under fleece if needed at night.
She has been having her dressings changed every 2 days and her foot is healing well, she is still on pain relief and antibiotics, today at our visit to the vet they told me all the results were in and unfortunately its bad news, Kara has grade 2 metastasis cancer and they think it has invaded her lungs, as she has a bit of cough and seems to gag, also her activity levels have reduced a fair bit, we were offered a referral to a vet were they can give her chemo and radiotherapy, I declined the referral, her prognosis is not good and it would only extend her life by a few months they cant cure the condition, we took her on to enjoy her retirement,
Here she is today resting her foot in the spring sunshine, as long as she is comfortable that all that matters I don't want to end her days to-ing and fro-ing to vets for treatment.
She may be with us another year or just a few months we don't yet know.
They are going to be keeping a close eye on her.
