It is kind of a damp, cloudy, bleary day around the Acreage today. I went and visited Elaine in the hospital, cleared up the hay shed for hay delivery tomorrow, took Brooklyn for a walk and swim, and could only find this poor little Blue Spruce to photograph. My heart was not in it-...kind of a downer day.
Elaine has now been in the hospital for one week, with minimal improvement. They have ruled out tumours or cancer as a cause, thank God! All other systems seem good. They did do a stomach biopsy just in case of a yeast infection.
They are back to Parkinson's Disease as a cause and suspect that they may have overdosed her on the medicine. Cutting back has allowed her to eat (for the first time in three weeks). This is a BIG improvement, even though it is just a few bites.
There is still no word as to when she might get out, certainly not before she can walk more than a few steps.
Sometimes life can get a little down on the Acreage! I must remind myself to be like the tree, big load and no bending.
