Yes, we have some real beautiful days at the moment, with temps here at the coast of around 20-23C and lots of sun.
Pity that today it is a bit too windy, but hey, we shouldn;t complain for now.
It is a pity too that later this week temperature will drop considerably, something of 13-15C only. If we compare it with the weather now, it is a big difference.
Last week wasn;t a nice one. Filled with runds to the pharmacy, calls to the doctor, etc. Fron last Sunday evening on Jan had an obstipation trouble, which isn;t a nice thing to have. a few times he also threw up, although he didn;t eat anything. With his medical background I worry about those things a bit more than normal, so I called the doctor on wednesday morning and asked the assistant if the doctor could come by to check on Jan.
In the afternoon he came and after a check and some questions etc. he prescribed two tablets, that Jan should take in the evening, before going to sleep.
So I went to the pharmacy and in the evening he took the tablets and just at that moment he had to throw up so the tablets got out. Ghee, now we had to wait till next morning. I called the doctor again, explained and he came again the afternoon. He now prescribed an enema. It was one we could do ourselves. So again to the pharmacy. And in the afternoon we did the stuff and oh it started to work a little bit. Still, there was some light at the end of the tunnel.
Next morning called the doctor again to tell about the situation. He advised to do another enema that morning. and he even came over later to check, if it went better. And we were happy to say that slowly there was progress, he was happy about it too. Prescribed again the same pills from earlier that week, just in case. So I again to pharmacy.
But during the day Jan had more and more normal bowel movements(is that the right expression?), and he didn;t need to take the pills.
I am happy, that all seems to be quite normal again. He lost some weight, because for a few days he didn;t eat at all, I can imagine he didn;t feel like it.
Now we have to get him on his feet again, so to say.
You can imagine, I didn;t get much sleep for some days, and with all the running around etc. I was a little bit pooped out. perhaps even more by the feeling sorry and worrying than by other.
It is a good thing that just now we have this lovely weather, so Jan can be outside a bit, take in some sunshine etc.
What a story, isn;t it?
It took about all the time of this week, okay, I did some small things here in the house, did a bit of shopping, just the most necessary, and didn;t have much energy for anything else.
I really hope to have some nicer rambling next Sunday and that i will have a new kit for you.
I think I will sit for a little while in the garden, now that the weather is still nice.
And later hand some apple pieces in the rose arch for the parakeets.
Also some breadcrumbs for the blackbird family(they have two youngsters to feed).
For dinner I will make some lambs steak and self made french fries, possibly with a bit of salad and as dessert some strawberries with cream! Yeah, time of strawberries arrived, yummie!
Okay, I wish you a wonderful week and see you again next Sunday.
(and yes, I will check, if the post is published now LOL!)
