|We've rented this contraption that Dh can put his head down/into; instead of having to strain his neck as he keeps his eye healing.|
Apparently, if you catch the problem quickly it can be a quick fix; but Dh didn't catch on and it got worse and worse.
|I looked to a table to set his contraption on, that was would be exactly the right height and was so blessed to find exactly what I needed at a thrift store--Praise the Lord for providing such a random need we had!|
His eye is healing well, or so his doctor said at this weeks appointment. Dh is doing a tiny bit better each day, but it is really a very slow process. By far, the very hardest part is that Dh can't lay down and get a good nights sleep. He is exhausted and his back, neck, and hips are killing him. Thankfully, his eye isn't hurting him.
|Can you see the mirrors under the pillow? He can have his head down and still watch tv with it.|
|In the winter I enjoy noticing all the animal signs on the trees and on the ground.|
Grand Rapids, Michigan (where I live) had between 3-10% sunshine this whole month. I think the news said we had 3 or 4 days when the sun was able to break through (briefly) the thick cloud cover. We are just east of Lake Michigan and all that lake makes wonderful big clouds that blanket our skies making for day after day of dreary gray bleakness. My SAD lamp is getting tired and depressed! overworked!
|Agnes and Henry in dog crate|
Agnes Decides To Marry:
Agnes has chosen Henry. Unlike our other two cats, Agnes came to our home when we happily had our Great Dane, Sophie. Sophie adores Agnes and Agnes Sophie. Agnes was walking around meowing in sad mews so often we took in the stray kittens to comfort her while we mourned Sophie. The very first day we brought Henry home Agnes laid down beside him in the living room. The past few weeks her love has grown. She has now taken it to the next level---she has moved into his dog crate!!! She has been spending hours in there---with him!! She is also eating his food, and he watches horrified and unable to respond! It is really cute and he can't do anything about it; she has decided!
|Henry, this visit from Agnes wasn't to his liking!|
|Dh made a table, with a hole in the middle, to sit beside our bed. He can miserably try to sleep or put a laptop on the shelf under the hole to watch a movie.|
