Gotta go feed silage, much as I hate to.  Doesn't take no time, but just making myself begin is the trick.

While your lazing about, make up a list of things to do Friday! Hope you're much better by then!

Man how getting older really really changes your body's reactions to problems.  Flu has always been miserable, but back in the day, I could work through it, and had to.  Today is so different, but luckily what I MUST get done each day is very minimal compared to before the cows left.  It's been 17 months since my body started a revolt against me, and life has been a whirlwind of change.  All the while trying to attend to my parent's needs.  Brian (TD&H) started his life changes about the same time, and I am amazed how he has come back.  He's making me look bad!  I am so happy for him!

  As far as a list of to do things Kenny, I'll know more as the day approaches and will accept help!

Yeah! It's takes more out of you and more time to recuperate. I've been lucky to not had the flu for a while now.

I'll be probably see Brian either out there or at the motel. Try to get out there about the same time as he does Friday!

I sent my boss a text asking him to call me when it was a good time.  When he called I was nervous, but Dewey told me not to worry at all, and just get better.  He said my place at work is secure.  What a huuuuuuuge relief!  The fact the worry is off me will make it much easier getting over this.

  And guys, no rush Friday.  Get there when YOU want to.  Go to Denny's first!

Once they start removing parts it doesn't take long before there are none left!

. I say this as I,m scheduled to get my gall bladder out on Apr 29.

Had mine removed two years ago. Didn't realize how much it had been affecting me until after it was gone. 

Next thing to go will be your good looks. :D ​              Rick

I'll be stopping off at Hadorn's bakery again, so I should be at the field about 7 or 7:30, with donuts.

Feel free to text or call me with the list. That way we can get things going and you can mosey down when you feel you can. Seems most of us Fridays morning arrivals have already been there a few times. We can sort things out. Just show up and soak up the good weekend and enjoy it.

Take it easy. At least the boss isn't a jerk about it. I used to work for Loomis Fargo. I went in and got the money and brought it out to the armored car. I threw out my back while carrying the money and had to crawl back to the truck, load it, and then get in. I had them drive me to the hospital from there. Boss wanted to fire me for not staying the whole day. Not sure how good a job I could have done laying in the back of the truck.

Saturday, right! I must be more tired than I thought.

 

If I'm needed Friday, I'll try to get off work.

Daniel, The difference between us is that you were able to fly back into work a lot faster then I did. It has taken me months to get back to where I am. You were back to working a lot faster then I was because I set at the house for months not doing anything while you were finishing up the shop and repainting a tractor among other things. It's taken me a long time to get back to where I am. Take a couple more days off work to get healed up and then get back to it. You have to give your body a few days to get over this or you will take forever getting over it, if you don't end up in the hospital before it's over..
