I have had visit from my in home nurse everyday this last week, as well as 2 therapists, everyday.
Yesterday was such a nice cool and cloudy day, and I felt so good, I went to work on reshaping my fish pond.
When it was dug, the plant shelves were way too narrow and sloped inward towards the water, which made it difficult for my plant pots to remain in the upright position and they kept falling in the pond.
So I removed all the plants and rocks from the right side of the pond, drained the water down to the bottom of the shelves. I then took a long board and rolled the liner in toward the pond, which exposed the bottom of the shelf.
I then dug the edge of the pond out another 6 to 8 inches, and leveled the bottom. I cleaned it up real good and then rolled the liner back over the edge, flattened the liner on the shelf so now it is wide and level enough to place my larger pots.
Now I have only the left side of the pond to do.
I took it slow and had enough oxygen line to reach every where I worked. I couldn't believe I had it in me.
Mary was so proud of me, not because of what i had accomplished, but I had the will to even attempt it, because she has been so used to seeing me in such a depressed state.
I owe it all to the good Lord responding to all the prayers from my family and my super good, loved friends here on GardenGuides.
Ya'll have a wonderful weekend, whats left of it, and thank you all for being such thoughtful and loving friends
Since my last blog, I have been admitted 2 more times in the hospital. Once for 2 days and another for 3 days. They are doing all they can. Today as long as Mrs Dash don't get me so upset I feel really great.
As some of you guys told me, with a little water, some of my plants are showing some life.
Thank all of you so very much for being such good friends.
This is the 5th time I am trying to post a blog. I was released from the hospital again Friday, the 7th of Aug, after 6days of confinement with another bout with pneumonia. The docs took care of it and made several changes to my meds, including different pain killers and a couple of electronic devises, which seem to help.
The bacteria that I have in my lungs is called 'Pseudomonas aeruginosa' It is resistant to all antibodies, and very deadly when in the lungs and/or the bloodstream.
I asked them to change me from Hospice back to in-home health care. Which they did. Hospice kept me so depressed I had about given up.
My beautiful wife, Mary, was spread so thin, me being 70 miles away, and taking care of her 83 year old Mom. That she forgot to water my plants, both in and out doors, so I have lost most everything, including most of my fish in my little pond.
GG has not let me post to any threads or blogs. So I am trying once more.
