Tripping Hazard

I woke up at 6 a.m. to Tim's yelling, "Vicky!  Help me!  Vicky!  I need your help!"  Oh man!  That is a terrible way to wake up!  Tim had been in the recliner and had decided to go back to bed.  When he got out of the recliner, the wire to the heating pad was around his foot.  When he got as far as it would go, he went down.  He said he hit his head and he hurt his left shoulder.  He was laying right in front of the doorway to the guest bedroom.  I checked his head.  There was no sign of a bump or anything.  He must have landed on his left shoulder as that was what was hurting him.

Finally after getting him up out of the floor, we made our way back to the bedroom so he could go to bed.  Well, needless to say, I was not going to be going back to sleep!  So, I got him settled and went into my reading chair and read my Bible and my devotional and one other book I am reading.  But the more I read, I started wondering if I should get Tim back up in case he had a concussion or something.  (I did notice this evening that he has a fresh scratch on that left elbow.  But, the shoulder is not really hurting him now.)

Well, at 7:00 he yelled at me from the bedroom.  When I went to check on him, he said, "Maybe we need to call 911."  I think his shoulder was bothering him.  I didn't really think that was necessary, but I said, "Let me call Sharon and talk to her about it."  When I called Sharon, she was on her way to work, but was just coming up to our exit, so she came.  She used a flashlight to check his pupil dilation and had him raise his arm and move it around.  She said if his arm was broken he would have been in terrible pain and would not have been able to move his arm around the way he was able to.  She told me just to watch his pupils for dilation problems the rest of the day.  Thank you, Sharon, for stopping and easing our minds!  I told her, as she was leaving, that I liked having a nurse on staff!  :D

It was such a beautiful morning!  Actually, it was a beautiful day, but the afternoon did get rather warm, but the humidity was still low, so that made it more tolerable.  I asked Tim if he wanted to go outside around 10:30.  I already had my brunch in the oven.  I asked him if he wanted to share it with me, so he did!  But he didn't even eat all of the little bit I gave to him.  I fixed him some ice cream with chocolate syrup on it and you can bet he ate all of that!

After we went back in the house, Tim laid down to take a nap.  And then I talked him into going to Walmart for a change of pace.  He was going to sit in the car, but I told him I was going to push him in the wheelchair, that he needed a change of scenery.  Well, by the time we got up to the self-checkout, he said, I feel like I'm going to throw up.  So I grabbed a couple of grocery bags and he proceeded to throw up in them.  Some young man came over to help pick up the groceries that fell from Tim's lap when he started puking.  He asked if there was something else he could help me with.  I asked him to go into the bathroom and wet some paper towels for me.  He knew the paper towels were out in there, but he went to McDonald's there in Walmart and got some napkins for me.  Then went to the deli and got a couple of sturdier ones.  That was so nice of the young man!

The puking ended as soon as it began.  I asked him if he thought it was a combination of the double vision and riding in the wheelchair.  He said yes because he felt like it was being car sick.  So, until the double vision is resolved, I guess I won't be doing that any more!  OY VEY!  What a day!

So, today, Tim ate about 1/2 bowl of cereal, 1 chicken strip, about 1/4 cup of mac-n-cheese, 1 ear of corn and some pudding.  He still didn't drink as much as I would like to see him drink!

This evening, we went back out and watched the birds.  I finally got some GREAT pictures of the hummer (the one that guards the feeder)!

Another beautiful day!

Tufted Tit Mouse hung around longer tonight than he has been!

Splish Splash I was takin' a bath!

I refilled the feeders today and dumped the old seeds on the ground here.

Do you see him? Just about dead center in the photo.  I was finally able to catch the hummer sitting in the tree guarding the feeder.

Compared to the picture below, he had his neck stretched out here.

Have I mentioned that I absolutely LOVE the zoom on my camera?!  :D

Talkin' around the water cooler.

And, that's a wrap for this Monday!
