We are having kind of autumn here.

Goodafternoon everybody!

In general it is going okay here. Only thing we worry about now is Jan´s health at the moment.
Finally  got him to go to the doctor last week. Well, doctor listend to his lungs)because of his caughing lately)but said his lungs were in pretty good order. So that already was a relief. But he is retaining lately quite some fluid in his belly, he has medication for it but at the moment thay don;t seem to work enough. that is causing the pressure on his diafragma(if I remember the word well).which causes the troubles.
All by all he has trouble because of it, so the doctor made an appointment for him with his specialist in hospital. Jan would go there somewhere in December, but that was too far away. Now Thursday morning he will go there. I think I will go with him.
And then I hope the specialist will have a solution and explanation.
I feel so terrible for him, you know and I can do nothing to make him feel better.
Let's hope he soon will feel better again and can do his walks and volunteering again and such.
And I always have to guess how he his feeling, because he is no complainer at all. Almost never says anything about how he feels or what is bothering him. And when I ask his answer is almost always:
" oh, I am okay, not feeling too bad". That's about all I get.

I just keep myself busy with normal housework and every now and then a bit of gardenwork, if the weather allows it. Slowly I have to prepare the garden for autumn and winter.
Last week or so we are having not very good weather. Temperatures don't come higher than around 17-18C, this week it will be even lower, some days something like 15C, which isn't great.
In the weekend we had quite some rain, and in between some moments of sunshine this week there will come more rain and also strong winds.
All over the world it seems that weather is acting crazier than ever.

We are getting used a bit to the fact that Brodski is no longer with us, but still there are moments  expect him to come in the kitchen, or greet me in the garden. It doesn;t matter, it will soften with time, and on the other hand, we don't want to forget him completely, don;t we?

Well, this was the little update. Thanks for all your sweet comments.
Take care of yourselves and be safe. Till next time!

I'm so glad to see you here, and that you are well. I feel so bad for Jan. Hopefully, his stay in the hospital will bring some healing and good news for him. It's hard to watch our loved ones hurting and know that we can't make them better.

Our weather is a bit cooler too. Although, today and the next few days will see temps reaching 80F. Then it will drop back down into the seventies. Autumn is coming whether we are ready for her or not.

Take care of yourself my friend. I miss your morning smiles. You have a super day, hugs, Edna B.

It takes a while to get used to not having a pet. Since Sam is gone as well now I catch myself on the way out out "See you later,Sam" or coming home wanting to shout "I'm home, Sam". Only to remember that he's gone. It's very quiet without him. On the bright side .... my black jeans have no fur I have to brush off ,lol. I hope they find out what's wrong with your hubby and he feels better soon
Hugs Snowy

Oh Kyra,

So very sorry to hear that Jan is going thru this ill spell. I hope that the specialist can find the trouble and it can lead to faster healing. I know how it is when someone says I am fine when they are not. Frustrating to say the least.

I know you miss your fur baby so much. I don't think that we ever forget them as they take a piece of our heart with them.

I am dreadful at commenting lately. Please forgive me and big hugs to you and Jan... xxxx Beth

Wow, I'm sorry to hear you describe what's going on with Jan but I can actually relate! They will figure it out soon and then he'll be a happy camper again!

On Sunday night the 10th, I asked my Grand daughter to get me to the ER. I was throwing up pretty heavy for me. They did some Xrays and a CT scan, and then admitted me. From 3 am on the 11th until 8am on the 16th, I was lying in that hospital bed with a tub through my nose down into the stomach that was suctioning out the stomach. IV's O'plenty but nothing to eat or drink all those days. Then on the 16th they did a Laparoscopy surgery and unkinked the small intestine and let everything run free again. All that time of no food or drink except when they pinched the ("roto rooter" my name for that tube) so I could take my regular medicines with a cup of water so it could do it's thing in the stomach and 1/2 hr later they hooked the rooter back up. And all that time I had to get up and go to the bathroom walking that IV pole with me.

They have called it a 'small bowel obstruction' and I'm good to go. 5 band aids on my tummy and a loss of 9 pounds later.

I sympathize so much with Jan. Give him a hug from the US and tell him I'm praying for him.
