Mission Critical



It's been pretty tough being less than 100% physically. It occurred to me that there's a lot of stuff around the house that I'm responsible for. A goodly number of jobs have been pushed into some ill defined future. My efforts have been concentrated on the things that must get done. Mostly, those are things that need doing before hard winter sets in. Here in the North Country, that could happen at any time.

Fortunately, I've family members who'll be helping with some last minute things. It's a big relief to me. They'll be able to clear up the last of the mission critical projects.

My doctor expressed concern that my leg infection has yet to clear. In fact, it's still pretty darn painful. On the bright side, my x-rays show that there's no infection in the bones. That's a huge relief as it's quite difficult to deal with such infections Right now I'm waiting to get into a wound clinic for further treatment.

Hopefully, they'll be able to set me to rights soon. There are a lot of house projects that, while not critical, should be done.

  1. Man, I do hope those folks can help you out. Gotta be aggravating to have a lot of things that need doing and not be able to get to them. Take care, my friend!

  2. Spent the last year between 40-70%. A rude shock for my dearest having to take on many of the heavy chores. Friends and family do what they can. Priorities and responsibilities need resetting when health issues become chronic. Hope you heal enough...

    1. I'm taking care of myself. My lovely wife has issues of her own and can only do so much. Glad we have friends and family.

  3. Last year, I 'tweaked' my hip lifting a lawn mower and TWISTING (not good !!) thus causing bouts of 'Omigawd - this HURTS!' just walking around. Hopefully, it ended several months ago, but I still have to watch out stretching for things just out of reach.

    So I can relate to the discouragement of having to cut back on your activities. I hope it will get better.
