Another stay in the Hospital.

Hey everyone,
I am sorry for being absent for so long. But health issues have taken their toll and the only think I have been doing the past few weeks is staying at home and sleeping a lot!
A few weeks ago I was able to get some work done on the Hen House, But Terri came out and did most of the work. And it's almost done!
Tomorrow I will be going back into the hospital for a Hart Cauterization (SP?) and if every thing works out, I should be home tomorrow night. If they have to place a stint in, I will stay over night and come home on Friday.  They think the chest pains I have been having may be caused by a partial blockage of an artery.
One of the Med's that they put me on has a side effect of the worst headache  I have ever had. And I have taken some personal leave until it's taken care of. So out of work for the past 10 days and I hope to go back on Monday!
Just wanted to get a post in to keep you updated!

The Chicken are still going strong! Another 11 Eggs today and the total from 1/1/13 is 451!! From 12 birds!!

No Progress

The best laid plans of Mice and Men!?

In my last post, I showed pictures of the wood and Pallets I got early this last week. And because of the cold and Snow, I did not get the wood out of the truck until Saturday afternoon. I was going to spend some time in the CH, Finishing the wall and getting some of the bird netting up. BUT....!!

As I got about half of the wood off the truck (storing it for now on the front porch), I started to get some chest pains and shortness of breath. I stop working and sat down to relax for a few minuets to see if the pain would go away. And it did... But as soon as I got back to the wood, The pain came back. As I got the last of the wood off the truck, I was in a lot of pain and really short of breath. I came into the house and laid down on the bed. The pain did not go a way this time and I called Terri to tell her I was going to the emergency room. She would not let me drive myself and took me in her car instead.

To make a long story short, I spent the whole week-end in the hospital. They ran a few tests and did not find anything wrong with my hart, but my blood pressure was elevated and they put me on a moneter to keep an eye on it.

They sent me home tonight and want me to stay home from work until Wednesday and I will be going in for more test later in the week. The think that the pain was caused by the "Acid Reflex" I have had for years. And that is what the other tests will determine.

So no progress on the CH for this week! I will spend tomorrow just resting and try to catch up on the sleep I missed out on in the hospital (They would wake me at all hours to draw blood and check vitals). So I did not get much sleep while there.

So I need to get cracking on the CH later this week and get the Chickens moved over as the weather is really playing hell with the old coop and Chicken yard. The tarp I put over the top of everything has been torn off by the high winds we had the other day and the rain did not help either! But the Girls are still putting out the Eggs! Terri took care of them and collected 23 Eggs from them while I was gone! This years totals are up to 266!

That's about it for this post. Talk to you later!
