Just remember, YOU are the farm's biggest asset, and you deserve maintenance and repair, too!

Bad bronchitis. Got antibiotics, inhaler, and steroids for my pinched nerve.  She also prescribed lots of rest, which I likely won't get enough of, but 3 out of 4 isn't bad.

Burning leafs can be very rough on the lungs and throat, maybe that's what brought on your issues yesterday?

I was very careful not to get in the smoke.  I stayed on the upwind side the whole time.  Now what did get to me a couple mornings ago was when I woke to sprinkles & unloaded the load of corn before milking.  The diesel fumes off the truck & tractor made me pretty much sick to my stomach, and my breathing became difficult.  Likely getting some fumes even inside the combine cab, but my respirator is charcoal equipped, chemical ready too, so I should be ok if my stamina holds out.

Tough hit, Daniel. Take care of yourself. My wife is fighting the same thing, same meds. But she has the option of staying in bed!

Wish I had that option, but not a chance.  I'll have to work through it.  I wasn't aware that bronchitis could take you to the ground like it did me.  I thought I was tougher than that, but guess not.  I did get off the concrete & finish the day's work though.  Not doing too bad today as long as I don't push myself.  

  We should finish shelling corn after lunch. Shelled a load this morning, now I'm going to vote, then we'll finish the corn.

"Corn 2014" is officially at harvest completion on out farm!  :thumbs:   Bad thing is, I pushed myself too hard today getting things buttoned up, and now I am feeling sick.  Have a low grade fever, and sickly stomach and stresses put on my mind.  Just not my day.  BUT, it's good the grain is in!  Go see my regular Dr tomorrow for more input on what all is wrong with me, flu shot if he can give it to me at this time, and see if he can tell what's up with my leg.  After the Doc visit, I have to feed the cows, then drive 50 miles to co-preside over a dairy meeting that won't get me home till late in the night.  I'll feed here in a few minutes, then rest all evening.

I sure hope you find something out tomorrow. Try and rest up this evening best you can. You have to be happy that the corn is finished for this year, another thing off this years list.

Craps, changed into sweats after finishing up feeding.  Took a lot at my lower leg as it's hurting worse, and it's swollen up.  The whole calf is tight and a light red.  What worries me is a possible blood clot, as this started after I slept in my recliner all night due to coughing from the bronchitis.  I'll know tomorrow.
