Good morning Kitty.  In the two wintry days here now.  Mowed our

lawn yesterday, that's 3 lawns I've mowed already. 

My sister wants to meet up at the farm sometime, maybe next week.

I will have to know at least a day ahead of time, not always easy with

obligations here and the weather. 

Got the garbage done and got eggs from daughter. 

Brandy has trouble with one rear leg, probably arthritis.  She has

Glucosamine in her food but don't think she's getting enough.  Have

increased her capsules from 500 mg to 1000 mg daily.  See if that

helps.

Have a good day.

Hi Kitty and Ernie~

Hold onto those leftovers!  We will all be up for dinner!   Sounds delicious. We had ahi tuna grilled with some veggies. Appetite has been a bit off since surgery.

In home PT today. Think I get the surgical wrap off. Allowed back on to sleep aide so a better night.  Pulse oxy still a bit low. I have a spirometer I’m supposed to blow into every hour.  Seeing a Pulmonologist next month. And on we go..  hugs Susan

Good morning Kitty.  Sorry we lost your post.  Glad you are enjoying time

with your kids.

I managed to resolve the fuse blowing on our loader backhoe.  The 50 watt

utility lights the dealer installed to light up the backhoe are an overload for

the 20 amp fuse.  I could run all but one of the forward pointing 37.5 watt

utility lights.  Called the service manager and he said I could go to a higher

amperage fuse and wouldn't void the warranty.  I know the wires will stand

the little difference.

Planning to meet up with my sister down at the farm next week, on Wednesday

or Thursday when it's supposed to be good weather in the Northeast.

Have a good day.

Good morning Susan.  Sounds like you are improving.  Sorry you

are having trouble breathing.

We have made it out of these two wintery days, now back to Spring.

I've mowed 3 lawns already.

Having trouble with ticks on Brandy.  Got a new collar even though

it's 3 months early and she's still getting them.  I tightened it yesterday,

though hated doing that. 

Enjoy your day and heal quickly.

Hi Ernie,

Very tall grass here.  If left to his own devices, Finn would eat every long blade of it!  I have a feeling the HOS has a contract beginning May 1.

Not so much trouble breathing, but sometimes a lower pulse oxygen number. I spoke to the Director of Nursing and she said sometimes these young physical therapists get the patient all riled up about numbers. When in fact, many older people have lower numbers and navigate well. 
 

navk on my vitamins, B12, D3, yada yada and spinning through the condo in my Walker.

Enjoy the weekend!  Susan
