Luke, our friend and neighbor, talked to his boss and got the Pres a little job! Well, although yours truly was skeptical at first about it being "light duty and nothing strenuous," it really is. And yes, it was cleared with the Cardiologist.
Each morning the Pres goes off to work returning late in the afternoon which has given yours truly the time to clean up the yard, plant some annuals, some seed and fix a few things that just needed fixing as well as ripping out briers here and there.
Then in the midst of it all there was a bridal shower to attend, a First Communion for our nine year old granddaughter, and going to visit our eldest grandson who we hadn't seen in a few years. Then we delivered a yard of top soil to my son's after he came out here and shoveled it onto the trailer, knowing that the Pres cannot do anything strenuous. Thus far, he's holding his own and has no A-Fib. Of course, the longer we can keep that at bay, the more chance his heart has to rebound and become strong enough for surgery not too far down the road.
This week, the Pres (accompanied by yours truly) goes for another Echo-cardiogram and then next week, we are hoping to touch base with the surgeon who will give us "the good, the bad and the ugly" .
In addition to all those things, we took time out to have a 20 foot retractable awning put on the South side of the house. While we were shopping around and comparing prices, Luke and Laura suggest a local place who does a lot of the commercial awnings. Talk about customer service!! Sure, their price was a tad higher, but the quality of the workmanship and end result can clearly be seen!!
Speaking of workmanship, it seems that "Red" really enjoys Percy's Place, which was a real mess after the Winter. At least now, he's got a few plants coming up and the majority of the leaf litter has been removed by yours truly.
Anyway, that's what we've been up to here in
stay in touch,
