Today is a little better than yesterday. Yesterday morning my daughter took my husband to the ER. He was having strong pain in his stomach and around to the back. After a few tests they said he had Pancreatitis . They admitted him put him on morphine and intervenes for fluids. They kept him overnight and then this morning they said he needed an MRI with Dye. Of course they don't do that at the hospital where he was at. So they discharged him and my daughter had to get a permission from a Gastro Dr to have it done. I think he will be having the test Friday morning if all the paperwork is correct. He is home now and napping. I pray tommorrow is better and that everything comes out good with his MRI on Friday.
I am wishing your husband better very quickly Sassy. My husband had pancreatitis and was just 2 hours from death when they got him in the hospital, and saved his life, it was a very scary time!!

Covered and winterized the pool, split and stacked some more wood, (had to use the wood stove this morning, so I know the weather is changing), replaced the vacuum lines on the wife's trike and took a short ride, started on the pole barn to cover the backhoe. Tomorrow it'll be winterize the 2 motor homes, and head downtown to get the idiots at the county office to correct the fact that they show 10 acres of my property as belonging to someone else. :mad: :mad: Is there anyone out there that does their job? I'm beginning to doubt it.

This morning I am getting ready to go do my part in a clinical trial. I am a participant in a study developing a new vaccine to protect against severe (sometimes fatal) gastroenteritis caused by a bad strain of E. coli. Of course, I don't know if I really got the vaccine or just a placebo.

Best of Luck with that... God Bless you @TravelinMan

Been getting delivered a bunch of stuff I ordered from here and there, a new leash for my dog, moisturizing bath, Murphy's, leggins, and so on. I enjoy getting these little things over getting bills. I bought my dog a birthday bone and vest that should arrive today--not her birthday today but what the heck she can still have her bone! I bet she will enjoy that!

Found out or rediscovered my health insurers will send someone to pick me up for free for appointments to the health facility. That was good to recall. I had forgot they do that. You have to wait longer but what the hay. I made appointments for a CT Scan, diabetic eye exam, a new hepatologist, and a mammogram so far. Now to call the healthcare transportation line and arrange for rides. I made one arrangement so far for a ride and that was easy enough.

It's a nice morning here. It's 60 degrees and I have the window open to get some fresh rain air. I love the smell of after it rains.

Not a great day for me yesterday..Doctor is sending me for thyroid tests..(can't get them done until Monday)..he believes I have a debilitating incurable (but manageable) condition ☹..anyway have to get the results of the tests before it can be confirmed!!

It rained very hard , and I was caught in it, kept trying to hold my hood on, but the wind was winning...everyone's brolly's were getting blown inside out.😀

from the surgery I went to the supermarket for the week's groceries, and being Friday it' was absolutely packed. Took me 15 minutes just to leave the car park!!

Anyway the good side of the day is that I finally managed to buy the new Limited edition chocolate that my daughter has been asking me for, for weeks..which despite the adverts hasn't been in the shops until now!! 😇

Gearing up for our Thanksgiving weekend. It's raining now but it will be turning colder. My daughter is making the turkey dinner on Sunday with her hubby's family and also we will be celebrating my grandson's 11th birthday - should be fun. I am up at 5:30 every morning and I check my stuff on computer (forums, etc.) in the peace and quiet before everyone else is up. I enjoy reading posts here from different parts of the country. Hope everyone has a great day and if not then remember, this too shall pass. Seize the day.

Hollydolly, sincerest good wishes for everything to turn out OK for you and hubby.

This year we had a great crop of crab apples, so yesterday we made some Crab apple jelly. I haven't made this for many years, but it looks to have turned out OK.

It's a beautiful Autumn day here, but we've a lot of work to do at the house. We dumped some rubbish and went to the shops in Banff to get new curtain rail and a pulley to put up another clothes line. That should keep me busy this afternoon.

Trivia: The first president of the Canadian Pacific railroad came from Banff in Scotland.
Banff in Canada is named in his honour.

Hollydolly, yes, you can still buy clothes pulleys. Several DIY shops here have all the parts or you can buy the complete thing. We have one in the utility room, but in today's case, I was only looking for the pulley blocks for a clothes line. Mrs L just wanted one at the rear of the house to hang out small towels etc..

We have a "Hills" rotary line in the garden. These are the "standard" rotary line here as they are sturdy enough to stand the frequent strong winds.

It's still quite pleasant here, but getting cooler as the sun goes down. I've just brought in some logs for the fire and it will soon be time to light it. Stay dry.

Another lovely Autumn day here. Blue sky, bright sunshine - but cold. There was a light frost last night so maybe time to move some of the plants indoors.
However,it's me that's indoors papering parts of the bathroom. It's driving me mad - the paper doesn't seem to want to stick. I've prepared and sized the walls, mixed the paste, let the paper soak etc. but the paper does not want to stay on the wall. Maybe big nails are the answer!
