Been Sick But I am Back
Tuesday, July 26, 2011
I have been sick for 4 days.Altho it has been a rough few days it was not life threatening nor heart related. I went to ER on Friday with some minor stomach pain which turned out to be nothing. Pain stopped after we were there for awhile.Tests showed nothing. But once again I proved why I stay far away from ER’s hospital s etc. I picked up some kind of bug and landed me in bed for 3 days unable to get up except for bathroom. One minute I was freezing and next I was sweating. It was good for my weight. Thankfully the worse when Bill was off work.
We were reminded again how lucky we are to be able to take care of ourselves and also have family that can help if needed. There was an older couple in same room as me on other side of room that almost had Bill in tears. He had just been released from hospital after having a stroke a few days ago.She was driving them somewhere and she hit something and split her chin.She had to have 7 stitches. They had no way to get home.She wanted to drive and then he wanted to. Neither one was suppose to be driving anyway. Bill went out and told nurses he would drive them home and walk back to hospital as they only lived maybe ¼ mile away. But they said they would figure something out. They we head the poor thing crying and asking her hubby why was all these bad things happening. Bill was really fighting to hold the tears in.They finally came in and told them they would call a cab and they would have to get someone to get their car.they reassured them that security would watch their cars. We told nurse again we would do it as I was released but she said she was worried about the liabilities of it. What is sad is that this is so common here.Older people who will not give up driving and have no family around to help. Bill and I have always said we will give up our keys but it will be hard. When I passed out last year I wasn’t allowed to drive and it was upsetting. Not that I needed to drive.It was just the thought that I couldn’t if I wanted to.
But I am still going to check and see what services are available before we need help so we will know what is out there.
The pool is gone. The young man and his son came and busted but to take it down.next they will get the deck.It makes me feel better that it will be enjoyed by a hard working young couple. Bill is getting excited about redoing the back yard, There is a lot of work. The back fence has to have all those white boards Bill put up to keep dogs from getting in our yard and hurting Roxie. It is going to look really good but will take time. Bill’s time table ranges from gunho to hoho. But he gets it done. Will only be extending butterfly garden a small amount. Which is all I want.As long as it and gazebo are how I want he can go to town on rest of yard.
Here are some pool up and pool down pics
Ok No pics now.Trouble getting them to upload will try again later with a blog of just pics.
Needless to say I am very far behind in my sparking. bear with me and I will catch up. Have a great day.
