04-07-2010 Evening

I got a little busy today and I know I'll pay tomorrow but I sure did have fun today. I mowed our yard, mom's yard and tilled where the green beans are going. I'll do some other stuff there like Okra and whatever Denise doesn't want in her gardens. I did cheap though. I hooked the rotovator up to the tractors and took it out 5 feet at a time, it may be 6 but we'll say five just to be safe. Fixed the power steering on the tractor, installed a fan in Big Ugly, unloaded the rest of the sand for the grandkids, the Megan and me planted an apple and a cherry tree. Me and Denise carried the wrought iron table and chairs on the back porch.

   I couldn't help but remember so many memories wile doing mom & dad's yard, it took a little longer than it should. I miss him. 

  The vibration of both the tractor and riding lawnmower eased the neuropathy while I was riding but when I got off, another story. I was taking a break with National Geographic called to say they would not be using me this time but maybe next time. I think my voice and health may have played a part in their decision. She said maybe next month. That is really good though as it will allow me time to heal. The show will be called Beyond and Back and should be good. I'll be watching to see if any of my friends are on it, especially Lou.

  Tonight I am again tired. Slowly each day I get a little farther along. I've been getting into trouble for doing yet if I do get back up I must do so attempting. Today has been a no pain med day again. In part to where I remembered the sunblock on my neck the I took my shirt off, rolled it up, and used it as a scarf. It still swelled but not as bad and the pain is lower.

  Tonight has been quiet so far. Last night someone knocked at her door 3 times and then came back here. It was late but I was up fairly late but both were around the same time frame. I really don't think they got what they expected when I walked out with a Carbine rifle, so they decided to move on.  


  I thought I had posted last night but I see I didn't. It is so weird how this stuff effect the brain.  

I woke up this morning then went right back out...twice, lol. Yesterday they delivered the frige and it did fit through the door with some work. Two different guys plus the owner of the company. They worked hard to get it through.

 I stayed outside all but the time they delivered the fridge. I've started carrying a pad to help me remember what I wanted to do in my pocket. I think it's called Chemo Fog. Why I get the things that should have come in December or earlier I have no idea. One note I have left myself is to wear sunblock on my neck. I burnt it pretty bad yesterday and it swelled and throbbed, and still is this morning. The pain is pretty rough but not enough to warrant pain meds. It is local and isolated so I can ignore that if I am preoccupied.

 My neuropahthy was bad yesterday, and that was remembering to take my pills. I did however have to ride the bike to the hardware while they delivered the fridge because my driveway was block so I now know I can ride no matter how bad it is. The only thing would be my balance. I don't think my ignorance of jumping off the tractor helped any, lol. It felt like 120 volts went through each leg when I landed. I done that several times. There just isn't any easy way to dismount the tractor.

  I woke up this morning with the same film and pain that I do every morning but this time I noticed and watched what I spit up and hacked to get up. It is dried blood and some puss later. I'm not sure what the film in my mouth is but the stuff in my throat that prohibits me from speaking and causes a lot of pain is dried blood. I go to Rathfoot tomorrow and I hope he can see what is going on. Not that I really like a scope up my nose and down my throat but he numbs it, and I'm getting use to it. I keep remembering what Lone Wolf told Denise  many years ago, "Never say never rather say I'd rather not, we may just have to one day do what we said we would never do".

  I'll post later if something
