Well I've fought with the internet people and the bank today and now I can't find where I was posting for Jim, but here's the newest.
After 4 weeks he is still face down or left side, but now supposed to get up every hour for a few minutes. AMEN ! This is good because he has been going CRAZY ! The books on tape/CD have barely kept him sane. He has had me FILL a notebook with things that need done or that he has thought through as to how they should be done.... He can see fair out of the left eye that just had laser repair so moving around the house is o.k. now. The re-constructed eye is just light and dark, but the Doctor is still positive and encouraging. He is still talking two more surgeries to get the job finished, but he says they are not as severe as this one was.
I mowed with the Ventrac again yesterday between rains, that really is a powerful unit, I still prefer the Cubs but even around the house looked like a hay field again. Hoping the rain gives us a break and some of the boys can put up hay this weekend. At least two have committed to coming home this weekend. 4th of July is always one of his favorites, so this will be kinda rough on him. The Dr did say if we were very careful of no jarring he could come down stairs and sit on the patio for a few minutes. The best time of day on the farm is usually sitting on the patio looking over the valley as the lighting bugs come out at night and the animals sounds all change over as they settle in and the whippoorwills start calling back and forth. Jim has desperately missed that, so we will try it tonight. Jim's already saying some of the cows will have to go. We usually let the butcher ones go all summer on "free grass" but there just isn't going to be enough good hay this winter.
I'm way late with my day so till next time,
