I’m very late today because Terry and I spent the whole morning in the Emergency room at the Delta Hospital, yesterday—-I know that isn’t today. But YESTERDAY set me back today! 🙂
You see yesterday Terry hurt his foot so right after he and I (he supervised) got the irrigation done and he rested his foot for a spell. (and I posted to my blog.)
He felt like we should go to the hospital and get his foot examined.
So off we went, got checked in and then waited. For two hours. Then it was our turn…really Terry’s turn.
After blood work and Xrays and lots of other things…we were sent off to get a prescription (by now it was noon and over three hours later.)
I took the prescription to Wal Mart…took us to eat, then went back to Wal Mart (one hour later) got the prescription… (for pain and swelling) Making it five hours from when we walked into the hospital.
Took us back home, where I collapsed into a very deep nap.
Got up helped Terry around. Then headed out and checked the rows—water is short now, so we MUST keep checking and making sure the water is going down the furrows not stopped somewhere along the way or plugged up from some weed or something.
Came back (it was so hot, Boomer wouldn’t go with me 🙂 ) and worked in my yard. I can finally say I have the whole yard weeded! It won’t last, but at this moment I am weed free. Tomorrow I won’t be able to say that! 🙂
Then it was suppertime, and time to change the water again. Terry felt good enough to go with me and hang out while we move water.
Today, Terry is much better. Can walk some on his foot, but still must keep it elevated and iced. And he was able to walk a short ways moving the dams.
So life is getting better again. We are on the way back to good health, the water is going down the furrows, the crops are growing, my yard is full of late Spring blooms, gradually fading into Early Summer flowers.
It’s hot here 97* yesterday (36c), WHICH I LOVE!!!
Everything is full of peace!
Life is good!
