Fall is here

    It is official that fall has arrived. The year is flying and I really don't know where it has going. It is going way to fast whether we are ready or not. It is going to be cool this evening again. My grandson is here mowing my yard hopefully for the last time of the year. He is going to portray Johnny Frye for the Pony Express 5K Run with Fergie again this coming Saturday. He likes doing it. 
    I went yesterday with my dil and grandson to Children's Mercy Hospital for his physical therapy treatment. It will either make them wore out or bouncy off the wall as the saying goes. It really wound him up. He got some new exercises to do before he goes back. He was swinging from the ropes before we left and dropping on a mat. I can see what my dil meant by somethings after watching. The physical therapist says that he has lived with the problem for a long time and has now come to the point where he gets physically sick. They won't address his hearing issue until she gets through with him. If I get another opportunity to go, I will go with them again. He sure knows his way around down there. I would get lost. The people that work there that I met were awesome and so caring.
   Hubby was really sick yesterday going both ways. He was still keeping soup down today. They said that his color was better, but yesterday was bad.  Somebody brought a bug into the nursing home. Why do people either come to work sick or visit a patient that way is beyond me?
   My craft show wasn't that good Saturday. There was just way to much competition. I did come home and go to the Southside Festival with my daughter and her family along with one of her friends that I hadn't seen for a long time. The only thing that my youngest grandson wanted to do was ride the ponies. At least they had a bigger horse for the bigger kids to ride. After seeing how they did the vendors, that is one craft show I wouldn't do. You would have to have a tent which would be hot. Theirs is a 3 day event.  It was an enjoyable evening.   I didn't spend much money. 
    Tomorrow is the eye doctor appointment. We find out if they are going to do injections into hubby's eye or if it will require surgery. Both of them scare me because I don't even like putting drops in my eyes, but I do so I can't imagine what it will be like that they are going to do to him.. I don't know what he would do if he lost his eye sight. I am praying for the best. 
   My grandson is through mowing the yard so I need to bring this to a close so that I can take him home. Have a wonderful rest of the week and enjoy the fall weather. Take care.

Shirley- Those sound like some treatments your grandson gets. It is funny that they can go one way or the other- either tire him out so much or make him bounce off the walls.

I am so sorry you hubby was sick. I don't know WHY sick people come to work or visit either when they know that most people in the facility have low immune systems to begin with. It's just crazy.

One of my friends does a lot of craft shows and she said that people are just not buying like they have in the past. She used to sell out and now she has tons of stuff left.

I certainly hope they don't have to do surgery or injections into your hubby's eyes. That would be horrible if he lost his sight.

I hope you have had a good day, Shirley. Keep your spirits up and stay well. Love to you- Diana

I just ache for your grandson. It's hurts us as parents and grandparents when there's not much we can do to help them. Just as with your husband..I hate that he has to go through this. Please know I am thinking of you and yours and praying for all of you. xoxo,Susie

Hi, Shirley - Just checking in. Your plate is full with so much going on! Hopefully your hubby will be back to baseline soon (as we nurses always say). =) Eye surgery these days is quite amazing, and they work hard at making patients comfortable…so try not to worry and just love him like crazy and look forward to your next laugh together. Hugs to you! Nancy
