26 April 2007

I will give you a break from the brat today LOL. It has been raining for two days and tomorrow it looks as if it is going to be reasonably dry so the horses have been in since Tuesday. These are some blossoms on an apple tree we have in the field. One of the few shrubs/trees/bulbs that survived the cold snap. I also noticed today that the Lilac bush has some new buds too which I am glad for because all of the original flower buds were killed by the late frost and I thought we would be without them this year. Not as many as usual but at least there are some.
I am greatly relieved and glad to report that my husband finally came back to me this afternoon. The doctors never told me how serious it was and we are very lucky he is still with us. We are still unsure what caused it maybe just a combination of things but he is his old self this evening and I am so glad. The doctor is very happy with the wound and I think he will be in for a few more days. They are also still monitoring him in case of a relapse. I spoke with his plastic surgeon tonight which made me feel a lot better, he is a wonderful man and Larry has been treated by him for the past 25 years since his accident. He has done uncountable surgeries to fix these pressure sores over this time. We joke with him that we have put two of his children through college and med school and are now working on the third one LOL.
I will be spending the day with him tomorrow again. I didnt get up there today because the stables needed attention, but his sister and nephew went up so he had company for part of the day which really put my mind at rest and took some of the pressure off of me.
Thanks everyone, I will be commenting to each one of you individually I promise, it is great to know that there are so many people who care. (((((Hugs)))))) to you all. G'Nite

Oh, Lori, I'm so behind in my commenting as I have had a very dear and close friend very ill in the hospital so tonight I thought I'd visit you and see your news. I wish you well.

Your photos are wonderful of the blossoms. Ours aren't out yet but it won't be long.

I've sure missed visiting your blog.

Oh, Lori, I'm so glad to hear that Larry is doing better. I'm sure that is a huge relief. Glad to hear that you got a break so you could take care of things at home too. Another relief I'm sure.

Hope the weather holds so your horses get out. I'm technically gone to the horse show. We moved the horses in today and I show in the morning in halter. That will be a trip. The horse isn't fit and only is about half trained to stand up properly but he's a beautiful horse so we'll see how it goes. He's never been away from home before so I could have my hands full. Then Rachel shows in the afternoon. Her first class at a class A Arabian show. She's having a case of nerves. But her lesson went well.

I hope you have a great weekend and I'll catch up with you soon.
