This past Tuesday Annika had surgery to have a VNS implant. VNS stands for vagal nerve stimulator. The goal of this device is to interrupt the seizures either before they occur or during. We had to be at the hospital at 6 am and luckily the weather was perfect for driving that morning. The surgery went very well, and we were home by 3 pm.
Throughout the day the wind started picking up quite severely to the point where outages were happening all over. As I was feeding the sheep some hay that evening, I looked across the fields just as the power went out at the farm and all the other houses on the road. Fortunately, we have a generator that is powered by a tractor. Dad and I donned our headlamps and hooked everything up to power up the premises! It was a long day, but everything went about as well as one could want.
