Been doing some online research, and seems I'm doing far better than most, so I guess I just need to do what I have to, then get plenty of rest.  Usually I find it harder to rest, but this whole thing has changed that.  The cold out also wears me down faster too.

Daniel, glad to see you are feeling better.

 

Thanks David.  I have found that a nap each day helps me feel a lot better, either before lunch, or right after.  Today I milked, then went to town for 24 bags of sweet feed.  Then home for lunch, then a nap.  Woke up, fed out 3 rolls of hay, then being it got up to 50F, I got the difficult to remove starter off the Cat pay loader.  Taking it to a specialist to get it fixed.  I could do it, but he has tons of parts, so rather than back & forth for parts, I'll just pay him to go through it.  Fed my silage this afternoon, then we went out to check on Mom & Dad.  They are doing pretty good. 

  Doing anything at all is lots of pain at times being I can't take arthritis meds, but I'm getting a bit used to it.  My Dr said I could take pain killers, but I'd rather do without, as I don't need the side effects that go with them.  

  I gotta say, I kinda liked getting greasy today!  :smilewink:   But tired I am, and will be for some time.

Sounds like you are pacing yourself real well, Daniel! Hope they come up with something to help out with Arthur!

Glad you had a chance to "get greasy", Daniel. Good to hear you are taking some restful naps too.

Take care, Bill

Very sleepless night, but drug out to milk the cows.  Taking the Cat starter to rebuilder in a few minutes.  Need to stop by my fuel supplier for a new diesel fill handle/nozzle.  My 1130 park let go while filling, and it broke the nozzle off the handle.  Luckily it didn't hurt the pump or hose.  Surely will nap later today.  Nothing pressing to be done except feeding this afternoon.

At least this came during the slower part of the year, should give you a chance to slowly develop new habits.

Yes, that was a blessing as far as timing.  I just unloaded the 24 sacks of feed, and I am extra tired, so came in for a rest.  My starter will be rebuilt tomorrow or the next day, but no rush really being I got the old loader running well.

They're hollering 30+mph winds Sunday, so I got up on the new shop roof to finish putting all the screws in the 3 sheets my friend & his stepson put up the other day.  They just put 3 lines across of screws in each sheet over 22' each, so high winds could have damaged it.  I gotta say, I just found out my stamina is looooow!  It wore me flat out before I even got done.  But I finished, then climbed my butt back down.  Gonna rest till milking time.  Josh is off tomorrow, so I have plenty ahead to do as it is.  I'm calling a local guy I know to see if he'll come finish this roof for a decent price.  I can handle the walls easy enough, but the roof stuff is too much for me, and will be for quite some time.

Good to see you thinking about taking care of yourself. Roofs are hard on GOOD legs!
