Finally, I am recovering

I would like to apologize for my neglect on posting to our blog. I have been fighting Pneumonia for the last week. Fortunately, I have been able to stay out of the hospital. We had a supply of medication left over from Dodie’s bout with pneumonia a few months ago, so I gave myself breathing treatments with the nebulizer. This, along with Dodie beating on my back to break up the congestion, has finally cleared my lungs enough to allow me to function again.

Today was the first day I have been able to be active. Derrick, my lawn guy, came and mowed the grass for me. I’m still not strong enough to mow the two acres in this Florida heat, but I did accomplish a number of chores that I have been neglecting.

Last night, I grilled a couple filet mignons for dinner. We enjoyed the steaks, along with baked potatoes with all the trimmings. I even prepared some Béarnaise sauce for the filets. There is nothing like a great steak to make you feel better after being sick.

Hopefully, I will be strong enough tomorrow to start getting caught up on everything that I have been neglecting.


  1. Welcome back to the world! Norma asked me just yesterday if I had heard from you. I will be flying to Toronto tomorrow to visit my older sister so I will be exposed to some heat and humidity myself!

  2. Its good to be back.I can't stand to be idle, but I have had absolutely no strength.
    Have a great trip to Toronto and enjoy your visit with your sister.
    Regards, Paul
