Thank goodness this is not me, but it does not make me feel any better to see this on my daughter's ribs. It came up on Thurs . morning and she went to the doctor who was stumped and gave her antibiotics and told her to come back on Sun. if not no better come back on Sun. So on Sunday she was no better and a little worse.
He gave her another antibiotic to take with the first one and made her an appointment to see a surgeon on Tuesday if no better. Well she is no better - only worse so we went to the surgeon this afternoon and he put her on a table and numbed it -then cut down deep inside of it and poked his hemostats down into it making channels and pulling out infection all the way down her ribs. He put these fabric straws down deep into it and showed me how to do it if they come out. He drawed dots on her skin and told me IF the red passes those dots by tomorrow when I change the dressing to take her back to the emergency room for inter-venous antibiotics. If the red is going down then she has to go to the wound doctor on Thurs. They did take a culture to make for sure if this is the right antibiotic for this bacteria????
Of course I am worried sick- and neither of us have any idea how it might have happened as she did not hurt herself -she just woke up this way?????
So, each day really is a Gift.

While reviewing my day and observing the creations and creatures that share my life the verse to this song popped into my head:
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all
These are some of the things that have inspired me today as I worked. I started out with my normal outdoor chores and then took Crystal's weed eater and trimmed a little around her terrace garden she is working on and then I trimmed down a hilly growth that I have dreams of turning into something useful???
This is the spot were I have worked. It does not Look bad but it is so steep I have trouble standing up on it. First I weed ate it and took a break. Then I went back and took the lawn mower to it to cut it down to some rows and then I took my tiller to try to till the bottom row- only the ground is so hard that my tiller just bounced up and down off of it???
This is a close up of where I went back and took the madic and hand dug it -OR - attemped to dig it??? First I ran into a tree root that was growing in the same direction that my row was going???????? Then I ran into a rock wall that I could not dig up - so I will have to remember to take a break there????? Finally I just collapsed from exhaustion and pain?
This hill may have defeated me today -but we will see what becomes of it in my future? Not excluding the fact that is is in a deer pathway????????????????????????????????????
My arms is almost useless- it is so tired I cannot lift it without pain and Mr. Fibromyalgia is so darn mad at me for what I put him through - but hey, I hate him as much as he hates so so I guess we are EVEN. lol
Of course I do have my co-horts who try to keep me out of trouble. But they find as much trouble as I do ?? Daisy has recovered from her Giardia and Indy managed to get kicked by the donkey and ended up in the creek covered in water and mud while my head was turned? But that is life in the country-thank goodness for the country life . I even saw the donkey "Licking" Crystal today as she attempted to sit on the grass and cool off??? lol

This is such a beautiful time of year when all of nature springs to life and seems to revive us from our winter woes.
This beauty was a gift from a friend who lives in California and she sent me several of the bulbs last Fall. I put them in the basement -praying that they would survive and low and behold here one of them is ???? It truly amazes me every time I walk past it and admire its beauty and I did place it where I walk past it Several times a day and appreciate her kindness of sharing something so lovely with me.
I completed another pair of baby booties for the Sewing Guild Christmas Community Event. The way time flies by me I am just trying to stay afloat. ~smile~
It is already June here and still very cool and rainy! I tried to start a fire last night and could not get it to burn . I just could not seem to hold my nose right at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

Have you noticed that life just rushes by much too fast? Some where between chores and garden and life I have managed to pull off some baby items.
It's not because the are any in the family but because in this coming December my Sewing Guild has signed up for a Group for Girls who are expecting for it's community donation. We donate items and then the girls take training and such and earn points which they can use to "purchase" our items.
I had to replant a row of beans in the garden as the first planting did not come up -the man at the seeds said it was because it had been so cool and rainy that the sees rotted for many people. I also got four banana pepper plants from him , since I had enjoyed those that I pickled last year so much. I had put them on little personal pizzas . Probably not the healthiest for you but everyone deserves a treat occasionally. ~smile~
