Thank you for your kind words ,What a morning,I have wiped everything off of my laptop,have little idea how to get it all back..T.O.R.
Sorry about Jenny. Dementia is terrible. It does sound like you are making the best choices in this regard, but it doesn't change the fact that Dementia is ghastly.G'day folks, I cannot believe it has been so long since I last visited.Much has happened, Jenny's condition is now that I cannot continue her care as I am not qualified in Memory Support and so the decision has been made to hand her care over to a aged care residential home where she will be supported by folks trained in the ongoing care of Dementia. The place chosen is about one and a half hours drive away and my plan is to see her in the afternoon and stay overnight with our youngest daughter and then visit in the morning before returning home to the farm. The bond required turned out to be $730K ,plus ongoings,the sale of the 40% will not quite cover this cost,but both the girls are going to advance us funds which will be part of their inheritance or until I have to sell the rest of the farm.
These changes means that we have to cease trading as a farm business until the situation is a lot clearer with regard to her ongoing care. Jenny scheduled to enter the first stage on Sep 20 for 4 weeks of respite,I do hope she settles OK as things cannot continue the way they are.
Further to the farm ,it has not stopped raining and in the last month alone we have had almost 120 mls.Everything is so wet and any travel has to be on foot unless I risk getting bogged.Because of the increased milking ability of the new ewes the lambs are growing really well grazing the few drier portions of the farm....T.O.R.
