Good Day: 16 January 2022

Good day friends,

Hope everyone had a good night’s rest. If you are only going to bed now or a bit later, wishing you a peaceful night’s rest.

It was a beautiful cool morning outside with a slight breeze. Hopefully today will be a bit cooler than the past few days.

Yesterday evening my brother and my niece took me to Mugg & Bean for Coffee and Cake. I took a photo of my Capuchino but forgot to take a photo of the Belgium Moose Chocolate Cake 🤦🏻‍♀️. I can tell you it melted in my mouth. The cake was not too sweet and paired perfect with the Capuchino.

Update on Dad

My brother is going to visit dad today. I phoned dad this morning to find out how he is doing. He sounded very good. We have to take him for a hearing aid though. He has trouble hearing and that is very dangerous he only gets bits and pieces of a conversation and then he makes and makes the wrong assumptions.

I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes for Dad. We really appreciate it. He is on the mend and it is due to all the healing vibes everyone sends him.

Lian took me out for breakfast this morning. It is a charming little Bistro. The food was outstanding and also the service. They were very busy and we decided to rather sit outside with a cool breeze. I want to take Dad there for coffee and cake when he is stronger. I want to take my camera with next time and ask them if I can photograph the interior and exterior of the restaurant when it is not too busy.

Good Day: 14 January 2022

Good day friends,

Hope everyone had a good night’s rest. If you are only going to bed now or a bit later, wishing you a peaceful night’s rest.

Well yesterday was my birthday, not a very exciting one though. Morné got me an L-Bracket for my camera and a Starbucks water bottle. Now I can tick of a two more things off my Hiking and Photography Gear List.

Starbucks Water bottle😍 and my L-Bracket for my camera 🥰

It is a beautiful warm morning outside with a slight breeze. Today is going to be another very hot day and I will be hiding indoors until it gets cooler outside.

Tonight we are going to braai outside.

Garden from my favorite spot in the garden

When we went to the nursery on Sunday, I saw something that gave me the inspiration to go and get out my old enamel serving bowls that I never use or have used. I got them from my aunt when they moved into the retirement home. The ones at the nursery are much fancier. I don’t think the birds care about fancy and neither do I. It must be practical and serve its purpose. I made my own version of a hanging water bowl, these days it is so hot outside and the water evaporates fast. Food they can get anywhere but not water. I hope my feathered friends enjoy their new water bowl. My next garden project is to make an extra feeder for them.

Update on Dad

I visited Dad yesterday morning, he is looking great and full of jokes. They are still trying to figure out the best combination and dosage of his medicines. His feet keep swelling and they need to get that under control.

They took out the catheter yesterday while I was visiting, he made a joke and said he must just remember that they took it out. We still don’t have any idea of when Dad is coming home. Maybe they can tell me today when I visit.

I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes for Dad. We really appreciate it. He is on the mend and it is due to all the healing vibes everyone sends him.

Today will be my first birthday since Dad went on pension that we won’t go out for tea and cake to celebrate it. Instead, I will go visit him in hospital. Oh well I’ll just add it to the list of things we must do as soon as Dad is strong enough.

I visited Dad yesterday afternoon, he is looking great and full of jokes. They are still trying to figure out the best combination and dosage of his medicines. His feet keep swelling and they need to get that under control. Dad’s Blood sugar was high yesterday and now they must try to get it back to normal again.

Dad told me that he can’t walk properly without assistance, his legs feels like jelly. When Dad comes home, he will be staying with me for a while until he is strong enough to be on his own again.

Good day friends,

Hope everyone had a good night’s rest. If you are only going to bed now or a bit later, wishing you a peaceful night’s rest.

It is a beautiful warm morning outside with a slight breeze. I had a very busy morning so far. I started doing the laundry, today I am washing the bedding too. I watered my plants to give them a bit of relieve for this hot day. I moved my Hydrangeas to a shadier spot with less wind also. Now I am sitting in front of my computer writing and posting until the washing machine sings and I can hang the laundry. Then the cycle begins again until all the laundry is done. Tonight, I am only making a salad with Gamon for dinner. It is too hot to stand in front of a stove.

I had a busy morning so far. I put out the trash and then went to Dad’s flat to sweep and mop his floors. Snuffels really made a mess of the floors the three days he was alone in the flat. Now Dad’s flat is clean.

I washed my hair and now I am writing my blog posts for today. I must still eat breakfast and drink my antibiotic. Today is the last day on Medicine. The only think I will use daily from now on is the inhaler till it is finished.

Update on Dad

I spoke to dad yesterday, he is feeling much better and says he is ready to come home. I am very excited. Now we are waiting for the doctor to give the green light that, I can go fetch Dad.

I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes for Dad. We really appreciate it. He is not out of the woods yet but we are getting there.

We picked up Willow’s toys because they predicted rain for last night…. Not a drop…..

I woke up yesterday feeling much better. I decided to take the day off from the computer, cellphone and posting on my blog.

We went to the nursery to buy potting soil and then Morné spotted the Habanero plants. His one died, we have been looking for Habanero plants for a while now. I bought two new big plants and I told him this time I will look after them.

I was looking at all the beautiful flowers but with Willow around I won’t be able to plant things in the ground she will just pull it out.

Update on Dad

I received very good news yesterday. Today they are moving Dad to a general ward. He is off the oxygen and is going on short walks. As soon as the doctor are happy with Dad he can come home. I am very glad to hear that dad is making so much progress.

It looks like the Universe will smile down on me and make sure that Dad is home for my birthday on the 13th.

I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes for Dad. We really appreciate it. He is not out of the woods yet but we are getting there.

Good Day: 8 January 2022

Good day friends,

Hope everyone had a good nights rest. If you are only going to bed now or a bit later, wishing you a peaceful nights rest.

It is a beautiful morning outside. The sun is shining , birds are singing, and it is very warm already. Today is going to be another scorcher. Tonight when we are going to braai outside I want to put the sprayer on for Willow. She enjoys playing in the water and I feel so guilty for not taking her on walks. She must be thinking that I don’t love her anymore.

Willow brought all her toys outside since Snuffels is staying with us.
Snuffels still visiting with us. He enjoys the grass and walking around.
Willow enjoying the warm sun…. Snuffels doing what he does best. Sniff sniff sniff….

I had a very bad night and Willow was by my side the whole time. When I go to the bathroom she goes with. When I get back in bed she lies snug next to me until she gets hot and then move to the floor. Normally during the day she will sleep on the couch, but since I got sick she sleep next to my desk. When I get up she walks with me. When I go to the pet shop next week I have to get her a new toy to say thank you for looking after me.

Update on Dad

I phoned the hospital to find out how Dad is doing, the nurse told me that dad’s infection markers is coming down and he is doing much better. He has started making jokes with the staff and that is always a good sign.

Dad is going on short walks all around the nurse station with assistance. He is sitting in a chair for at least 2 hours a day. I am very glad to hear that dad is making so much progress.

Unfortunately I am not allowed to visit Dad. It is killing me but, I have to get better and stronger for when Dad come home. Maybe the Universe will smile down on me and make sure that Dad is home for my birthday on the 13th.

I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes for Dad. We really appreciate it. He is not out of the woods yet but we are getting there.

Malva haven’t stop blooming since Lian bought it for me.😍🥰

I Went to the doctor yesterday. He is worried about my lungs. It looks like Covid did a number on me. He send me for x rays this morning and gave me all new medicine. I must take it easy and try not to be to active.

I had a shock this morning when I realized that the first week of January 2022 is nearly done and that I have “missed” a few days. I am writing my posts on Auto Pilot…..

Second round of Medicine…. Hopefully this time it works.

I am sick of lying in bed so I sit in my chair in front of my computer and watch some YouTube videos, edit a few photos if I feel up to it. I also started with my Gaelic lessons again. I can’t believe how much I have forgotten in the 3 months. Busy refreshing my memory again before I continue with the new work. I do everything at a snails pace. When I get tired I go to bed and sleep.

Update on Dad

I phoned the hospital to find out how Dad is doing, the nurse told me that dad’s infection markers went down and he is doing much better. They did start him on a new antibiotic yesterday and it seems to be working.

Yesterday they also started taking Dad for short walks and he must sit in the chair for at least 2 hours. At least there are some light at the end of the tunnel.

My brother will be visiting Dad again later today. Unfortunately I am not allowed to visit Dad. I have to get better because there is still a long road of recovery ahead for Dad.

I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes for Dad. We really appreciate it. He is not out of the woods yet but we are getting there.

Good day friends,

Hope everyone had a good nights rest. If you are only going to bed now or a bit later, wishing you a peaceful nights rest.

It is a beautiful morning outside. The sun is shining and there is a fresh breeze in the air. Today Morné and Lian start working. It is also back to normal for me today, writing posts, edit doing laundry and looking after the four legged children. Morné took care of everything while I was recovering from the pneumonia. I am still taking it easy though.

Snuffels, dad’s dog has been so sad and for the past few days I opened my safety gate in the morning and let him in my house. In the evenings I take him back to Dad’s flat. The first day he marked everything, and I cleaned up after him. Since then he has been very good. When I am sitting at my desk he is sleeping on the doggy bed I put down for him.

Update on Dad

I did not visit Dad this morning. I did phone to find out how he is doing.

The nurse told me that dad had a peaceful night. Dad’s HB levels has dropped again and they are giving him 2 bags of blood today. I asked her what the problem can be and she told me that she has no idea. If I don’t get the chance to go to the hospital today, I will phone back later to find out how Dad is doing.

I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes for Dad. We really appreciate it. He is not out of the woods yet but we are getting there.

Good Day: 2 January 2022

Good day friends,

Hope everyone had a good nights rest. If you are only going to bed now or a bit later, wishing you a peaceful nights rest.

It is a beautiful morning outside. The sun is shining and I woke up with a Grateful Heart. I am grateful for all that I have. I am grateful that I woke up this morning and could walk to the bathroom. I am grateful that I can brush my own teeth and dress myself.

On my way to visit Dad, I noticed all the people walking and I started feeling guilty for not taking Willow for her walks. I am looking forward to start walking with her again as soon I am better and not getting so tired after a few steps. When I go visit dad I have to sit halfway just to catch my breath then continue to ICU where I sit again before entering. Can’t visit Dad huffing and puffing.

Update on Dad

I am very happy to report that Dad is doing much better. I visited him this morning again but he was sleeping. He had a physio session early this morning. He told his nurse around 9:30am that he is tired and is going to sleep.

The nurse told me that dad had a peaceful night and that they turned down his oxygen this morning. All his test also shows improvement. His color also is improving. The blister on his lip is also smaller.

I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes for Dad. We really appreciate it. He is not out of the woods yet but we are getting there.

Good Day: 1 January 2022

Good day friends,

Wishing everyone a Blessed and Amazing 2022. Always be grateful for what you have and spend time with your loved ones.

Hope everyone had a good nights rest. If you are only going to bed now or a bit later, wishing you a peaceful nights rest.

When I woke up this morning it was raining. What a welcome sight, this means that the water tanks are filling up again. Our Heavenly Father are always on time.

Raining on New Years

Update on Dad

I am very happy to report that Dad is doing much better. Yesterday they called in a Dietician because Dad did not want to eat anything. She prescribed some meal replacements and Dad’s nurse said he is happy to report that Dad is finishing one after the other. Dad had some dried blood blocking his nose and that was why he could not get sufficient oxygen. Johan, Dad’s nurse told me this morning that he saw that Dad was trying to inhale but nothing happened. He then had a look and saw the blockage. He cleaned Dad’s nose and since then his breathing improved a lot.

When I visited him this morning he was sitting up and we talked the whole time. He did lose a few days and he told me they moved him last night. I asked him how do he know he was moved, he told me the clock against the wall has moved. The last he recall was bed 24 and he has been moved to bed 6 since Tuesday. I read him all his Christmas Messages and Get Well messages again. Dad is talking about all his “work” that he is missing out on and that he will have to get caught up when he gets home. He has a pink file with the weather forecasts in from 2014. Every day he makes a note in is dairy of what the weather was like that day. I will keep notes for Dad until he gets home.

The Doctor said Dad still has a long way to complete recovery, but Dad is doing great and everything is improving nicely. Today he is getting his first of 6 B12 injections.

I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes for Dad. We really appreciate it. He is not out of the woods yet but we are getting there.

According to the weather forecast, we are having a wet and humid Summers day. With a maximum temperature of 23°C and winds up to 21.600 km/h.

Good Day: 27 December 2021

Good day friends,

Hope everyone had a good nights rest. If you are only going to bed now or a bit later, wishing you a peaceful nights rest.

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas weekend. I can’t really tell you anything about mine though. I was sleeping most of the time.

Well, Dad is still in hospital. According to his doctor he had a heart attack early last week. That means he either had one before we left for Beaufort West or while we were on the farm. Dad never said a word. He still keeps saying that he is couching due to the “hay fever”.

I phoned this morning and the nurse says dad is doing better. He is just coughing a lot and they are putting him on stronger antibiotics.

I wish I can go visit him but I can not even sit up straight long enough to drink a cup of coffee. Today I am drinking the last of my antibiotics. I am still coughing but not all the time. Only when I talk or move to much….

According to the weather forecast, we are having a cloudy and humid Summers day. With a maximum temperature of 22°C and winds up to 21.600 km/h.

Good Day: 24 December 2021

Good day friends,

Hope everyone had a good nights rest. If you are only going to bed now or a bit later, wishing you a peaceful nights rest.

Today I am fighting very hard to keep the tears away….

I went to the doctor yesterday and he said that I either have pneumonia or covid. He send me for a proper test yesterday because according to him the rapid tests are not accurate enough. I am waiting for my results. My fever keeps playing games with me. Up and down the whole time. I am on a trip from all the medicine, so please forgive me if my sentences don’t make any sense.

Lian, my youngest took dad to his doctors appointment yesterday and then phoned me to say that the doctor said dad must be admitted immediately. He has fluids on his lungs and heart failure. He was also tested for Covid but I got his results this morning it is negative. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you…..

We will not be celebrating Christmas this year while dad is in hospital. We will do it when he gets home. I am not allowed to go see him at all and it is killing me. My dad is my biggest supporter and is always there for me, and now I can’t be there for him because I am sick in bed….

According to the weather forecast, we are having a very hot, cloudy and humid Summers day. With a maximum temperature of 30°C and winds up to 25.200 km/h.
