We have autumn here, not really cold in the mornings, but cooler than several weeks ago.The leaves are falling, summer flowers are still blooming, and Ginger Boy has a thick winter coat and sleeps inside most nights.
The Red, and the pink Alstromerias have had a second spurt of blooming.
Down the driveway, the Cherry trees are losing their leaves fast, and glorious colours, I could see a quilt design right there somewhere.
Life continues …each day, slowly and steadily, as surely as sunrise and sunset… we are off to Wellington on 20th May for Hugh’s appointment with the specialist at the Spinal Clinic. After waiting so long, I hope for a miracle, they do happen, maybe it will be his turn.
This week, I needed a short holiday. A private room, with full room service, warm blankets on arrival, and everything a girl needed. PUO, and BIBA, the usual acronyms for “pain of unknown origin” and “Brought in by Ambulance”. Severe pain, unable to walk, even with Hugh’s spare crutches, so a few hours rest , ( I was in the plaster room , were they already thinking of something serious?!!!)..pain meds, an X-Ray to rule out a pelvic fracture!!! They could not diagnose any particular thing that contributed, so if I could totter to the bathroom, and get on and off the bed when I tottered back, I could go home, Well, I did say to myself, very quietly… 4 hours rest is better than none at all. the pain has almost gone, and I am taking each day VERY slowly. Friends have phoned, and offered any and every help imaginable , Joyce and Hugh have taken up the reins for a few days. All is well.
