just be extra careful . ER IS NOT LIKE ITBUSEDVTO BE. You don’t walk in get sewed up andvtheyvsendvyounhome. They can’t even stop a nose bleed. They were supposed to cauterize my nose. Today this is a chemical thing rather than laser or burn thing all it is a wood stick like eat is used for COVID test but fabric end dipped in the cauterizing fluid. A person could do it at home. But the ER DOESNT have the stuff nor a certified person to do it. My sister said they didn’t have a nurse or doctor atvthe ER so they had to go and drive to the hospital . Forex rays . I can’t tell you how many times I was cut or bruised playing hockey and football , got patched up and went back and finished the game. A memorial one was a serious dog bite in training K 9 dogs just an accident. An officer took me to the ER IN the K 9 car . The ER DOCTOR SAID THEY WOULD HAVE TO REPORT THIS TO THE POLICE the officer is in full uniform and says” I am the police get this guy fixed up we have more work to do.Wow! K2, your wife is one tough lady.
I have built a small wall to add a bit of support to the Cornish hedge between me and next door. It was just the bottom corner by my garage that needed doing. No room to actually get in there, yet, but I managed to dig out two barrow fulls of dirt etc before making the shuttering and dropping it into place. I bought six 25kg bags of ballast and used the two I already had to build what I hope will be a sturdy wall of about six inches thick. No cement mixer so I mixed it by hand in a large garden tub, the same tub I was carrying concrete in when I broke a rib. I will give it a couple of days before I remove the shuttering, then I hope I can get down the side of my garage and cut back the undergrowth. There is just enough room if I stand sideways, so I musn't fall over....
I’ll call sister later and see how she is doing . I wish I could help do something , just sit and chat if nothing else but we’ll see later how she is doing . This isn’t going to be easy . I’ll offer her my cane so she can continue her walks as that’s a big part of her exercise program . I know she is not going to like that. . She may need to get a cane with the claw end for extra stability . It took a bit to get used to mine especially in the winter but I have an end that looks like a hole saw for icy conditions.
