Right now if I can’t get me lawn mowed soon (been raining every day) I am going to have to bail it for hay, or get a herd of goats, maybe I could spray it with roundup and then burn it off.

Damn Jim. Take care of yourself. I totally understand the cane and walker thing. One thing I love about the new house is that everything I need is on the main floor. Sure, there's 3 bedrooms a bathroom and rec room downstairs but if I'm sore, I don't have to go down there. By most evenings, my legs are done and have little strength so I have to use the walker. The new house is plenty big enough for one.

Today, I will finally get the motorcycle loaded up and out to the new house. Aside from a few odds and ends, that and a freezer are the last things to come over.

Canadian eh!!!

Trouble is I need my right arm for support with my cane. Back to the walker for a while
That's terrible, Jim.
Heal up my friend.

I feel like I could use a cane or walker today.
Feel like crap.

Oh, the joys of getting old! After hearing your story, I'm once again pondering the thought of avoiding the opportunity.

I hope you heal fast my friend.

Jim when I was in the hospital for several months I was talking to a nephrologist about my lack of range of motion in my right arm (that fistula blew out 8 times and my surgeon told me to use it as little as possible) the doctor said that I would have to fight to get that motion back by going to the point of pain then a bit more and I would slowly get that range of motion back, it hurt a bunch but it worked. Hope for a fast recovery.

Thanks David and everyone.

I have some exercises he gave me and will be back for PT Monday.

Everything hurts. Have a bunch of bruises in places I didnít think hit anything.

Iíll be ok, just have to take it easy for a while.

Folks like my dad used to tell me “getting old ain’t for sissies “, i’m 68 with arthritis in my joints, And it’s even eroding away the lining of my eyeballs, which will eventually cause them to rupture and leave me blind, kidney failure, heart arrhythmia sand foot problems, so it seems to hold true.

Jim falls and bangs himself up, ruger having mighty scary issues.
You both make me just want to hug you, and stop whining about simply being tired taking care of folks just like you.

That said, I took my happy ass to bed for a good nap.
With ear plugs.

Got tickets to the Gary Railcats minor league baseball game tonight.

It's BACON night at the ballpark, which is located a couple blocks from the heart of the city.

Pirate girl thanks for the offer of a hug, but as long as my wife continues to put up with me I am golden, she is why I am still here, I was not going to do dialysis, I was just going to let nature take it’s course, and I refuse to have a kidney transplant (I would rather some kid or at least a younger person get that kidney. The reason that I decided on dialysis is that my wife’s father had just died, a few years before our youngest son had died, and I could see that she was overwhelmed at the thought of me leaving her alone, so I sucked it up and began dialysis.

I sure never knew all of that.
Your wife is very loving, and you are very brave.
God is blessing you with strength.
Keep the faith, He's going to take care of the rest.

Pirate girl , not so brave, just a realist, there are things in everyone’s life that they have no control over. They think that my kidney failure was due to me taking ibuprofen for my arthritis, even though I wasn’t taking anywhere near a maximum dose, now my arthritis is attacking the lining of my eyeballs and causing erosion which can eventually lead to rupture and blindness, wonder what the odds that with all the folks on ibuprofen that I would get that side effect.. so we never know what tomorrow will bring,

I went to dinner with numero uno son and granddaughter.
Working the 11p-7a tonight.
Not anything thrilling to report.
I expect I'll have a quiet night with my little shadow man keeping me company.
He cracks me up.

Bronchitis again. To an Urgent Care place this morning. Nebulizer treatments and drugs for the next few day. Had the same dang thing two years ago in the summer. So frustrating.

Doc heating and air conditioning both dry the air, if you notice that your breathing is better when you take a shower a vaporizer or humidifier might help, when I get congested I will go in the bathroom, turn on just the hot water in the shower to steam the bathroom up , it really opens my head up.

I have a good bout of arthritis in my knees.
I fear that at some point the ibuprofen, or acetaminophen will be my demise.
I do real well with a half a percocet, but no, can't have that.

Tore up a small 4X4 brick patio and dug a new ditch about thirty feet. Hauled the dirt over to make a new garden bed on the north side of the yard. I'll back fill with gravel.

Found that the old 3" pipe had broken so it filled with dirt. I appears a low spot stayed full of water and last winter's super cold spell broke it. This time I'm going 6" and setting a bit more slope.

I've got 30 feet of run with only 8" of drop. I should have 30"

But with large pipe I think I can run level for 20' and then drop.
