Rehab Time

Yep, he was transferred to rehab late yesterday.  I called just a bit ago, and he wasn't too happy, they didn't have his diet info yet.  I'm not going there today, he's doing really good, and it's supposed to be bad storms late today.  I'll plan on going tomorrow.  Not sure who will go today.  Also not sure how long he'll be there, he's still so weak.

I was just sitting here about 15 minutes ago, and don't know how, but this baby tarantula spider just squeezed into the corner of my door!  This is a steel door set into a steel frame!  Did NOT know there was any space there.  I put it outside with my bug catcher, didn't want to hurt it.  One time I saw one about a block from my house, stopped, caught it and put it in a cup and took it back to the house and put it in the breezeway.  It stayed around a long time, lots of stuff to eat.

Well, that's it,,so yall tc, and

Doing Great!

He's still in ICU today but hasn't seen the doc yet.  Had had scrambled eggs for breakfast, and done physical exercise sitting up ,,, when I talked to him a bit ago.

As for me, i'm taking the day off, and resting.  Didn't wake up til nearly 8:30, and I know I will nap today too.  Even tho you just sit,, when you're there, it still wears you out.  I think it's not having my chair,,,lol.

Can't talk about anything else because that's been my life for OMG,,, 2 weeks today!

Lot of Time Gone

Gosh, not sure when I posted last.  On the 8th, I took my son to San Antonio for some injections in his spine.  We got back about 2 PM and he wasn't feeling good and headed on home.  Right after 8 his fiancée called and told me he was in the ER....About 3 hours later, they flew him to Round Rock ER still not sure what was wrong.  He did have double pneumonia, but his chest cavity was full of air or something.  They didn't find the 1 1/2" tear in his esophagus for 2 days, and finally did surgery from 10-2PM Thurs. nite.  All that horrible stuff had leaked out into his chest, and also into his lungs.  He has barely made it, but is definitely getting better every day.  He's still in ICU, but came off the breathing machine totally Wed. or Thurs.  (I'm kinda lost in time).   I'm staying home today to get some rest, his Dad is there and his fiancée will be too.  He pulled the tube out of his nose during the nite, but they left it and will do a test to see if things are going down right, now.

That's all I can do about the last 11 days.  Been at the hospital most of the time, and had taken my tablet but wasn't using it so I left it home.  Our dotter brought jigsaw puzzles, and that was the perfect way to pass the time.   I've ridden with his Dad, and was leaving home about 7:30, getting back about 10.  I'm doing a load of laundry, need to go to the grocery, and that's ALL i'm gonna do.  Kick my feet up in my chair, nap, and stare at the walls,,,lol.

Class on Doodlebugs,,,

Here it is


Just for you LottaJoy.  They go backwards, always. 

This is what they turn into.  A dragon-looking thing.  Pretty neat, huh?  I didn't know that til I got my young son a little book on insects.  The doodlebug is the larvae.

Thank you for being interested too, and let us know if you do call them something else.

Still Here


This looks like one of those ant hills in Africa, only in miniature, about 3” high.  I know they build up before a rain, but NEVER saw one like this.  Couldn’t get low enough to show the height good.

Doodle bugs still there, and more little ones.IMG_0095IMG_0096

They’re NOT gonna run me off!  lolol.  I need to shake their pebbles off, but,,,darn, can’t do it.
