Beautiful Weather The End of August!

Every day for the last couple of weeks the weather has been perfect!  Sunny, not humid and so pretty!  What a weekend!  It certainly was a busy one!  Saturday we had dinner and spent the evening with my son and his wife and enjoyed every minute.  Sunday was another busy day helping them with their yard at their new house.  Can't imagine it has only been a short time since they moved in.  It is a wonderful home already!  Yesterday started off great with the beautiful weather again and cleaning up their yard.  I was trimming shrubs and Blake was cleaning up the mess I made.  We all decided to go inside to cook a late lunch and drink some water.  I was the last and putting down the electric trimmers caught me by surprise when my finger caught the trigger catching my index finger on my left hand with the blades throwing blood all over the sidewalk.  Those trimmers are meant for branches not fingers!  I told Fred of my plight when I got into the house and he began to clean off the blood and wash it up.  I was sitting but after Blake got me some juice and water I soon woke up and noticed they were all not where I last remembered.  I had put my head between my knees but apparently it didn't matter because heat, lack of water, blood or whatever it was made me realize I am not so tuff.  Fred was holding me and Blake was calling the ambulance.  I convinced them I didn't need and ambulance but they convinced me to go by car.  A couple hours later as we walked out of the ER I found my pride was severely damaged.  They monitored my heart, EKG, tetanus shot, bandaged and ran blood work thinking since I was out 3 minutes it might be something else.  Gladly it wasn't.  What happened?  I am the one who takes care of everyone.   Feeling so bad I ruined a day of work on such a beautiful day and no one had been fed yet, I looked around to see my wonderful family who took care of me, cooked my dinner afterward and were happy to help me when I needed it.  Thank you Fred, Blake, Mindy and even Daisy who gave me some kisses.  I am so lucky!!!  This is Roberta who is on EBay.    Ebay link:                Roberta is Adopted

  1. Oh, Carol--I am so sorry to hear about your ordeal! How very scary. So glad your family was there to take such good care of you. :) I have a story I think you'd get a kick out of...about 13 years ago, my husband went to the ER because he was having chest pains. He was in his 20s so I wasn't too concerned, and it did turn out to be nothing. However, I got so lightheaded and nauseous from worrying about him that I ended up passing out in the hallway at the ER, banging my head hard on the floor, and getting admitted myself! Talk about damaged pride! The nurses said they could her my head hit the floor from way down the hallway--fortunately, no concussion. But we did have one heck of a hospital bill! So glad you are alright. Sending big hugs to you.
