From this valley they say you are going
We will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile
For they say you are taking the sunshine
That has brightened our paths for a while

Come and sit by my side if you love me
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
Just remember the Red River Valley
And the one who has loved you so true.

Mina coughed and gagged some last night, but overall we both slept fairly well. I’m back on the couch to be near her at night. This morning she ate like a horse. Actually, I think she puts a horse to shame with her appetite.
