Our goats (Daisy and Millie) are gone now. Both had CAE and Daisy started wasting away this year (probably not related to CAE). It was ignorant of me to bring goats home without doing some basic research — and demanding a blood test. I just went with what I knew back in the 80’s when I last cared for goats.
Georgie is gone too. Medication and diet changes couldn’t stop his thyroid problem.
Tim Ferriss’s podcast with BJ Miller is required listening. Dr. Miller specializes in palliative (a word I only learned this year) care. The bullshit ends when a human enters the The Zen Hospice Project where the doctor practises. The doctor’s description of the flower ceremony at the hospice left me weepy.
The end is coming up on me faster than I’d like, and this podcast is a good reminder that I need to focus on the right things. What will my final thoughts be? They certainly won’t be concerned with a fucking server in New Jersey.
