Tough time

Well, Bob is on the road to recovery. Sometimes it seems like things come in a pile. Yesterday we spent a good part of the afternoon at the ER at Deaconess Hospital. Bob's leg swelled up big. I was so afraid of a blood clot. After an ultra sound, x rays and exams by several doctors his leg has muscle damage from him dropping a bale of hay on it a couple of weeks ago and pinning it against the bucket of the tractor. Now it is just time. He is walking better today. He has used a cane a little but the walker is folded up. I don't know what I would have done about the chores if John our neighbor did not come and help me with the things that are tough for me.

He has been feeding the cows and doing the watering. I am so grateful. Consequently I have not had time to work with Sage. Just put her in and out every day. I took her an apple yesterday and today she kind of mugged me looking for apples. She likes horse cookies but is crazy about apples.

To top it all off today coming back from the mail box I was walking west and one foot went north and west and the other south and east. I didn't fall but have kind of a sore knee. I am glad no one was watching.

Tomorrow must be better: Blessings.


  1. Thanks for the update. That is very scary, but I'm so glad it was only from the bale and tractor! Hope all is better soon, Lea.

  2. Lea I'm glad things weren't any worse for Bob but girl you be careful! You sure don't need to be falling. :( blessings, marlene

  3. I hope Bob heals up fast - and you be careful! I wish I lived close enough to come help with chores.

  4. I hope Bob gets better soon. Oh that's got to be scary. I am praying for you and Bob both.
