Yesterday, while working on the squash beds, I was thinking ahead to working on the beet and carrot beds today. Braveheart (front) and Nostrildamus (rear) both allow me to pet them, and even skritch their ears now - but only after I've provided them with kibble in the morning! Forgetting completely that today was our … Continue reading Forgot about that…
Okay. I think this is going to be a difficult post to write. To recap for our new followers (Welcome! Thanks for joining us!); about a year and a half ago, my husband ended up in the emergency room for what turned out to be pulmonary edema. He spent the night in the hospital, was … Continue reading Broken. Like our system
I headed out to water things this evening, but got distracted. Junk Pile and two of her babies were out! I ended up lying right on the ground, in hopes that would make them less intimidated by the tall(ish) human. Creamsicle took full advantage of the situation. What a silly boy! Tabby didn't come any … Continue reading Get a little bit closer, and a follow up

Most appointments were being cancelled - thankfully, not hers - and they were only doing phone appointments. The clinic is still doing "walk ins" … Continue reading A hint of what this August looks to be like
And it only took 2 years and 5 months. My husband got a letter from the pain clinic in the city today. He has an appointment for next month! Which will make it almost exactly 2 1/2 years since he was first put on the waiting list. It took 2 years and a new doctor … Continue reading Good news!
It was a sleepless night last night. Even with painkillers, I still hurt all over. That, on its own, would have been fine. What made it difficult is what I could only describe as a total rebellion of m body! You've probably heard of restless legs syndrome? That's when you're lying in bed, trying to … Continue reading Recovery day
Doing my rounds this morning is, for the most part, getting easier as the snow melts. There are just a couple of shaded areas where sheets of ice and formerly hard-packed snow suddenly giving way under my feet, have made walking somewhat more dangerous! It also means that, while the water between the house and … Continue reading Water, water, everywhere, and in recovery
