    That sounds like he is on the mend Janet, and it is about time isn’t it? Our preacher had gall bladder surgery last week and was in the pulpit on Sunday…it used to be a week in the hospital. I hope you both get a break and can enjoy your spring.

    Good Morning Kathy, Larry and all..I guess I slept in this morning and it isn’t a good day to do that. The HVAC guy is coming today to do the semi-annual service on the heat pump. I have to get everything out of the laundry room so he can get to it. The old saying “if you don’t like our weather wait a day and it will change” is sure true here today. I went to bed in warm weather and got up with a north wind and chilly temps. DD is doing well we took a little walk around her yard yesterday evening. I have to get into the greenhouse some time today and get some transplanting done. I only have half a bale of potting soil so until I can get more that is all I can do. It doesn’t look like I can get much done in the yard today I still have standing water in some places. The cold wind will get rid of that. Have a wonderful day!

    The official name for Naked Lady is Lycoris, at least according to Brent and Becky’s Bulbs that hammered the proper names into our skulls:)

    Linda I am so so sorry that this is happening to you. But I am glad he came to you to get the help he needs, it is hard especially for a man to admit that. You are both in my prayers and don’t hesitate to come to us with your concerns and worries…that is what friends do and we are all friends.

    Good Morning Sue, Larry and all…I haven’t had time to read any of last night’s threads. I am so sorry that Melissa has lost her father but he is in a much better place now. I will keep them in my prayers.
    We had an inch of rain overnight so it will be too wet to work outside today. At least it doesn’t require a shovel:)
    DD is doing well, she is one tough cookie having been through so much in her life including breast cancer. Through all of her treatments she didn’t miss a day of work. My job now is to be sure she doesn’t over do it. I need to take her car to the shop for an oil change today, take trash to the transfer station and pick up a few things at the grocery store. I hope you all have a great day.

    I just finished some beef stew. Don’t have a thing in the house for dessert and that is a good thing:)

    I am glad you found a plumber you like. I finally found one this winter and he will be my first choice if I ever need one again. One time long ago I tried running a snake in the drain and it caught on something and I had to call a plumber to take the whole thing apart to get it out. That was a very expensive lesson.

    Hi Charlie, Gayle, Donna and all…It has been a beautiful day here but one of the weather guessers used the “S” word for Saturday. The weeping pussy willow is in full bloom, the forsythia is showing color and there are a lot of different daffodils blooming. It isn’t unheard of for us to get a light snow the first of April, happened once since I have lived here. They call it Mother Natures Fertilizer but I have a better name for that. Starts with an S and ends with a T. Nothing exciting going on here.

    Good Morning Sue, Larry and all..I guess I won’t complain about the chill outside today since at least it doesn’t have to be shoveled. I put DD into bed last night and took my phone to bed with me..no calls so I am hoping she slept better in her own bed. DGD will finally make it to school this morning, lucky for her she is about finished and only has a couple of classes now. I don’t remember going part time when I was in school but a lot of the kids already have enough credits to graduate. I have neglected the greenhouse the last few days so I hope I can get out there and catch up on that and I have to do some laundry or I will be totally out of clean clothes. Thanks to all of you for your kind words and prayers, I will keep all of you in mine.

    She is home, had a shower and is tucked into bed for the night. Nobody will disturb her sleep tonight so she will feel much better tomorrow. They did give her a good supply of pain meds but she probably won’t take a lot of them, she is one tough cookie!

    Two years ago I let some go to seed and it sprouted again last spring but as cold as our winter was this year I may not see it again so I started more.

    I didn’t get everything sugar free but I got her a good supply of drinks and stuff. Charlene the Jello Blocks are a good idea I will make some for her tomorrow. I am sure by the time they get home she isn’t going to be too interested in eating. She called about an hour ago that they were leaving it is a good two hour drive and they are in rush hour traffic too. DGD was supposed to work tonight but she cancelled that in favor of a good night without interruptions.

    I just heard from DGD, they will give her the meds at 3pm then discharge her. I know my DH spent a lot of time in the hospitals and he always said you never get better until you are home. I asked DD this morning if she would have the procedure done in 3 months and she said absolutely NO. She is going to be on a liquid diet for awhile so I am making her some chicken broth and as soon as I can get over there I will go to the store and get her stocked up on Jello, Sherbet, broths and whatever I can find that is sugar free. Maybe some sugar free mints. Thanks again for your prayers and good wishes, it means so much to all of us.
