Been Awhile

It's hard to believe my last post was a month ago today. In fact it now has been two months since I had my colon surgery. I saw my surgeon on December 9th and he was pleased with my progress with the exception of my lack of activity. He felt my energy level wasn't where it needed to be and encouraged me to do more walking. I've really had to push myself even though at times I didn't fell like it.
I don't have to see my Doctor until sometime this next March. Hopefully my strength will return by then.

Yesterday I used The Solution on the lower two thirds of the motorhome and at the end of the day I certainly felt like I had done a days work. I'm not ready yet for climbing my ladder to finish the upper third. Also I need to climb up on the roof and clean it but Sandy says no way we will hire someone to do it. We also raked leaves, well mostly Sandy, yesterday and it won't be long we will be burning the many piles now that the burn ban has been lifted.

Our weather here has been great the last two days even though we had a good rain both nights it cleared during the day to allow those outside chores. Speaking of outside chores I rode the big tractor mower last week and mowed the three acres next door. I also mowed our little area. Mainly this mowing was mulching leaves and pine needles. Now let me tell you that event laid me up the next day as my guts were screaming from the torture I put them through riding that bumpy tractor.

Until next time. . . .MtnAire Travlers.


  1. Glad you are getting to feeling better. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you both.

  2. I don't think the doctor meant that kind of exercise!!
    Be careful, you don't want to damage something.

  3. Good to see you are on the mend. Sherri and I are just shopping and getting ready for the Holidays. This will be our last year of big spending on the kids. I hope they understand.
