FAREWELL and THANKS for loving me...
FAREWELL and THANKS for loving me...
I hope as I start to type this...I can finish. I have started so many times. I photograph life.....this was Barbie's life up until an hour or so before she left me. Doesn't she look good ? She was so beautiful. Liv ( Boered ) and I had planned on talking on the phone for some time and it just never seemed to happen. Well....oddly enough.....it did happen on Monday afternoon, October 16, when I was up on the goat hill. I told her that I may have to call her back, as there appeared to be a problem with Barbie. When I walked into the barn Monday afternoon, Barbie was laying down. She was always up and very excited to see me. I said "come on girl, get up Barbie".......she slowly stood up. I crawled into her pen area. She was so thin. I realized that I had to bring her home again as she just didn't seem herself. I did not know why she was down, as the day before she seemed just fine and dandy.....except so thin. I carried her out to the field....on the phone with Liv....I told her I had Barbie in the field with me as I found her laying down and not acting herself. While I was on the phone with Liv....Barbie let out a loud "baa".......Liv said "oh Lisa...I don't like the sound of that"..... I told her Barbie just needed to go home with me and then she'd be just fine. She just needed a little TLC again on my couch. She said she did not want to upset me....but that was the sound her beloved Neo and Freddy made when they were dying. I told her I thought Barbie just needed me to take care of her once again at home. I could fix her. Liv asked me to take Barbie's temperature once I got her home. She said a "low normal" for a goat is 101. She said her Neo's temp got as low as 98 and then he died half an hour later. When I got Barbie home....I had her stand in my yard. She tinkled...she ate a few dried autumn leaves in my front yard and a couple bites of grass. She just stood there and looked up at me. I picked her up and brought her in the house. I made her a plate of grass and leaves....fixed her a real baby bottle full of warm water and even put a spoonful of sugar mixed in. She seemed like she could not get enough to drink. She also would nibble occasionally from her plate of grass by her "sick bed".... I took her temperature as Liv had asked me to do. Remembering how low her Neo's temp had been right before he died....I just held my breath. I took Barbie's temp three times.....before I called Liv back. Barbie's temperature was 94.1 all three times. I took her outside two more times....she ate grass a touch when we went out....looked up at me again so I carried her back in. I was beside her on the floor the entire time. I decided to take her outside once again to see if she would go to the bathroom. I carried her out...stood her up and she stood for one minute....fell down and cried as if in such pain. I swooped her up, brought her back in and down she went back on her "sick bed". The entire time she was on the floor...she was covered with this afghan....her head on a pillow to support her little neck. My face was directly in her face as she did not want me far away. I constantly had my hand by her head and face....telling her many many times how much I loved her....telling her she was the most beautiful goat ever born on the goat hill....and telling her she was a beautiful princess. She seemed to like that...I could tell. I called Liv and told her what Barbie's temperature was......94.1. She was startled...I could tell. I think at first she might have thought my thermometer was off....but I put a baggie over the thermometer....put it in my mouth and took my own temperature. Mine was 98.1. I knew the thermometer had been in Barbie's bum......but I didn't care. The baggie was over it when I put it into my own mouth. I knew the thermometer was right.... I had to get up to go to the bathroom twice...at first she stood up quickly and yelled ( baa-d ) loudly....until I came back. When I came back...she would lay right back down and wait for me to lay beside her. We both got back into our position....as if to wait. The last time I got up to quickly run to the bathroom.....she did not get up. She just yelled in a very faint "baa"......I hurried back as fast as I could. I would stroke and stroke her and continued to tell her how much I loved her......she never quit staring me directly in my eyes. If I would move to one side....her eyes would follow me. If I tried to give her a little space....she moved slowly until her face was touching my face once again. She could not get close enough to me. I have never been through anything like this before....except with my Mother in 2001....but this was so different. When my Mother was dying....the nurses came in and told my sister, Barbie, and I that someone was keeping my Mother alive. The nurses said that sometimes a dying person will not die

Yes another post-it. I felt as though I needed to stop and look at the people that surround me, they have all made a difference, the friends, the foes, the ones who are just there. I would like to take some time to thank some people. If you are not included here, don't think theres a reason, I just don't have time to write one for everyone. Today was good, I am getting better, happier. Karen Huezo: I've known you for almost two years, and boy was there never a dull minute. You are probably one of my best friends, and also one of the most reliable. I can talk to you about anything and you will understand. We think alike and I swear if it wasn't for the obvious differences I'd say we were sisters. I don't know where I would be without you, and when I say that, I am absolutely serious. You have brought so much to my life, music, jokes, memories and theres much more that would take me forever and a day to describe. I can go on and on about why you are important to me, but I don't have that much time, so I'd like to say Thank you. Thank you for being a part of my growth. PS: I can't wait for the pot and pan fight :) Kim Chau: Oh Kim darling, where to start...Well you are deffinately a unique friend of mine. Probably one of the nicest people I've ever met. You are so adorable ^_^ You know just how to make me laugh, and I'm glad you are a part of my life. Though we met on flickr, I feel like I've know you for years. I love watching your growth through your photos, I look at your first 365 photo, plain and simple, and now, intruiging and with a purpose. You are deffinately a great friend to have, and I am honored to say your my friend. So thank you, for being my friend, and inspiration as a photographer. Oh and for promising to give me a little asian-photographer baby :) Brenda Wierzbowski: Hmm Brenda, Brenda, Brenda...you are the most perverted person I've met, and I love you for it :) You are a very blunt person, and I appreciate that, you don't beat around the bush or lie like some people do. You have taught me so much, and I know you can relate to most of the stuff I've been through, and I'm thankful for that. With that being said, Thank you :) Sarah Mourssi: I've known you for so long. And there is so much to say. You can make me laugh no matter what, you make my heart smile :) You have seen me at my worst and helped me deal with it. You always focus on the positives in a person, never negatives. I thank you for being the one to show me that you shouldn't dwell on negatives, just move on. Thank you for everything, thank you for the three years of happiness, basically thank you for being you and making me...me. Ryan Klimek: You are one of my first friends. The longest friendship I've ever had that has remained strong, I've know you since the days of finger-painting, by this I mean kindergarden. You are another person who never sees the flaws in a person, only the good things. You know me better than anyone, and you can always tell whether or not I'm faking a smile. You have been there for everything and you are the best friend anyone could have. Thank you, for everything. Iga Szymanski: You are one of the strongest people I've met. You have been through so much, yet you are still the nicest person I will ever meet. You are willing to give your all in everything you do. You are an inspiration, that no matter what goes on in your life, you can overcome it. You know how to handle anything and everything, and thats remarkable. I don't know how you have so much patience and generousity in your heart. I know I will never meet anyone else like you Iga, and I hope you and I will always remain friends. You are a great friend Iga, and thank you, for being an inspiration, a great person, and my best friend. There are plenty of people I thank and have yet to be named, but as I previously stated, there is only so much time in a day, and to name everyone would take forever. So to everyone I've met, that I have associated with in some form, Thank you. SOTM: Almost Lover- A Fine Frenzy thank you kim! :) edit made my day: midnightxsun17 (7:28:09 PM): okay we're in an empty apt and we both have our own forts and we're like glaring at each other and olive randomly runs around the room chirping and holly is like...lagging or w.e you call it and kim is all KITTIES!!!!!!! and then they run out the room and he chases them out and all we hear is a giant scream and a meow and a chirp o_O
