You had a busy day, Daniel. Nice that you had some roof helpers come by. Funny how when a person gets tired, or something is hurting, that steps always seem higher! Sorry to hear about your cold nights coming up... that's not good cause that means it will be at least that cold here!

Made it through milking, but left tail drag marks behind me.  A different tired than usual....this tired runs deep.  I figured it would be like this, but the easier day tomorrow should help.  Speaking of steps Bill, they give me more trouble with my legs being on the weak side.  I'll build back up, but it sure won't be overnight.  1st time I've ever been in a hospital overnight as a patient, so 6 days was forever to me.  So glad to be home.  Teresa made tater soup & hot fudge sundae cake tonight.   Yep....I ate too much!  :smilewink:

I made it through this morning milking better than yesterday.  All my joints are hurting a lot now though.  Sure miss my arthritis meds!  Even my knees hurt enough it makes it harder to go up/down steps.  Up many times each night due to back pain.  I figure I'll either get used to it more, or whine more.  Hopefully I'll start getting better sleep.  That will help a ton.

  Eating breakfast, then showering before my trip to the Dr.  Then stops for water heater elements, block heater for the old IH payloader, and more that I wrote down somewhere! LOL

Daniel I am PRAYING for a good report today from your Dr. today and also that he can give you something to take care of your pain so you can get some much needed rest. Hang in there my Friend.

No real news as he couldn't access the rest of my blood tests due to his computer system being down.  Nothing for my pain unless I want to use pain killers, as normal stuff is out.  For now I'd rather tough out the pain, as I don't like pain killers, and usually they don't like me.  Had to up my rat poison (warfarin) to get my INR count up higher.  

  Had a very busy day once I got home, as I had 2 block heaters to install.  One in the MF1130, the other in the old Hough 30 pay loader.  Also had to tighten up a steering knuckle bearing on the loader.  Finally got it all done as the sun was going down.  Cold wind out & getting to the low teens tonight.

  Today I felt better than since before the hospital stay.  Sore all over, but feeling pretty darned good considering.  :thumbs:

Sounds like you did pretty well today, Daniel. Hope the pain subsides soon.
It was windy here too. 14 degrees now. Not going to get much warmer than that tomorrow, with wind gusting to 30 mph. Sure not normal for this time of year. I had my insulated coveralls and my heaviest winter coat on all day. Never did that in November before!!
Hope things keep going well for you, and you get good results from the doctor!

13F here after milking, wind chill of 3F.  Hard to get out of bed this am, but drug my carcass out & got chores done.  Not planning to do much today with the cold temps.  Running the corn bin fans this morning to match the grain temp to outside temps.

Been tired all day.  Not been a good day, but not so bad either.  Equipment cooperated at least.  Tomorrow will likely be another "take it easy" day with just basic chores, except to drive a couple T-posts where a wooden post busted off, allowing bred heifers to get into the alfalfa field.
