Today's picture is of the fire bowl on the patio but as you can see it is more like a gold fish bowl after all the rain we had yesterday!
Not a very exciting day here yesterday I am afraid as I just played catch up most of the day. We did have a phone call from the hospital saying that Pete's blood test results were back after only 3 hours. His blood count is at 75 which is not good as he should be more like 160 - 180. Another phone call at 8.30 this morning told him that he is booked in for 3 units of the red stuff tomorrow. So yet another thank you has to go out to all the amazing people who regularly donate blood as without them, and his fantastic nurses, Pete would have been dead a long time ago.
He did start out to work this morning, got there, sat in the car and then came home again as he felt too sick to go in, which is unusual for Pete (he has only had 2 days off sick in the last 2-3 years). One of the side effects of anemia is nausea which he had this morning. He only really gets it first thing and it then passes off as the morning goes on so he will be in work at lunch time, he is already feeling a lot better and is currently playing on the Wii. We suspect that he is actually pregnant and the Doctor is hiding it from us as he has also been put on Folic Acid tablets! Lol
In total contrast tomorrow night I will have to deal with a hyperactive husband because after he has a transfusion he goes loopy and generally winds up and irritates everyone for a few days which puts us all in a fantastic mood - so roll on the weekend just need the weather to pick up now!!
