Hi everyone! I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weather! Almost a little too hot for me today. Almost. Ken didn't think so-he decided after his blood transfusion this morning he was going to mow the grass!!!!! They said he would feel better afterward, but my goodness! I tried every way from Sunday to get him to let Matthew do it when he got home from school, but to no avail. There was no stopping him. Just goes to show you; you can't come between a man and his John Deere. Matthew did all the push mowing, so all Ken had to do was ride. But he did the whole yard start to finish, including airing up the tires on the mower and fixing a light on the street sign. I was surprised he did so well. He was quite tired afterward and is now sleeping like a baby :)
After his spell last week, where his blood pressure dropped to 60/40, they have been monitoring him closely. After a little hydration and the transfusion today, he should be feeling better in the coming days. I'll let you know.
His brother is making the trek down from Wisconsin this weekend as well as his sister Laura so hopefully he will feel well enough to visit with them. I don't know how long this “blood high” will last. We'll see.
Thanks for checking in,
