Friday the 20th

Today was a fairly nice day. Gary came out and helped me load the chipper in the truck. Went to his place and chipped up a whole bunch of branches. He had a lot. We should have done them once in the spring. Guess we weren't home enough. I can feel it tonight. I need to tear the chipper apart tomorrow and reverse the blades. They must be getting worn out as it doesn't do as good a job as it used too. Have to get the manual out for that. I looked at it once. Thelma still has some pain but think it is getting better. Had an email from Bob G and he said darlene is holding her own. They put a trach in so they could take the tubes out of her mouth. She is still on Dialysis. Wed it had been 14 days. The doctor thought maybe by Christmas she might be able to go home. That would be a nice present for the family. It will still take a while for her to get her strenth back. Well that is about it for tonight. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli


  1. Guess I'm confused. I thought dialysis was for kidney. Didn't she have a bypass. Will continue to say prayers for both Thelma and Darlene. What did you do with the mulch from the branches. Our former neighbor had one of these and it was nice to put around in the flower beds.

  2. Where do Bob and Darlene call "home" now? Is it still Texas? That would be a great Christmas present if she's home by then. Is Thelma's knee pain all the time, or just comes and goes? Will continue to keep her and Darlene in prayers.
