He went to the office between 8 and 8:30 a.m. Ilene was next door helping Lori with her yard sale and she saw Tim walking to the office in pretty good shape. But, by the time he came to the house around 11:30, he was not walking that great, even with my help.
I fixed his lunch and then he laid down for about 3 hours while I went to Walmart. After he got up, he went back to the office while supper was cooking, but he came back about 45 minutes later. He sat in his recliner to do some reading before supper. We sat in front of the TV while we ate so he could watch the news. He began seeing double. It left, but came back while we were out under the car port watching the birds. It left again before we came back into the house around 7:30. All afternoon his walk was not that steady.
I asked him how his devotion for Mallard Ridge was coming along. He said he is having problems reading and maneuvering on the computer because of his eye sight. So, you know he is straining his eyes and on a normal person, that causes fatigue, so I'm not surprised he was having problems with double vision and balance. He let his brain become too tired! Yes, I will have to make sure that doesn't happen again! He won't heal if he doesn't let his brain recuperate!
I did send a note to his oncologist about requesting a CT scan of his chest, abdomen and pelvic area since the melanoma is in his brain. He is coughing quite a bit, too, which makes me wonder if he could have something going on with his lungs. I voiced this concern to the doctor. Hopefully, he will agree to doing a CT scan.
I took a ton of pictures today of the birds. I put up some new feeders and suet cages and even a hummingbird feeder. Plus cleaned out the bird bath and filled it with water. But, I'm only going to post a few pictures. I'm pretty tired myself and ready for bed!
