Not much to share so .....

I'm going to show you some things I'm going to show the new cherry tomatoes that I'm growing in the efforts to be self sufficient ....

Also I made 2 lots of tomato sauce the other day, 1 was spicy and the other was more a sweet ketchup.Today I weighed in at 201.9, which isn't bad by all accounts since I started the DDC2 challenge at 203 pounds, so that's a loss of just slightly over a pound, could have been better but I'll take it.

My throat is still sore and makes me cough a fair amount so keeping her nice and lubricated by drinking bucket loads. Exercise has been a little none existent for the last couple of days with the sinusitis, breathing has been an issue as you could imagine. Now with mum back in the hospital, well, the corridors are really long .....

Yesterday when I got to the hospital, mum was still in emergency waiting for a room to become available, since she needs to be isolated due to the shingles still being contagious, she needed a single room, she still hadn't eaten or drunk anything but water since I had left the day before, remembering that I took her to the hospital at approx 4pm and I arrived the next day at 11am! Lucky I stopped off to get her a feta and spinach twist from the bakery. Once I knew her heart rate was back to normal I proceeded to buy her a coffee, well actually 2 coffee's, she loves her coffee. As I was going back to her room, the ambulance drivers were like 'it must be my lucky day' and 'oh thanks for the coffee', of course I laughed about it. But before I even made it to mum's room, the nurse said she couldn't have coffee! They had tried for hours last night to get her heart rate back to normal and weren't taking any chances with the coffee. Fair enough, so it became the ambulance drivers 'lucky' day. After all I couldn't drink 3 coffee's! I think they were astonished that someone would bring them coffee, they had nothing to do with me, hadn't saved me or my family from some horrific accident, but you know what, they probably did that morning or were going to some time that day, a little bit of kindness goes along way I think.

Well that's it for me today, or until something else happens today that I think is blog worthy. Have a great day and read you soon

Sorry to hear about your sore throat. That is the pits. Get yourself some tasty cough drops. One of the benefits of living this day in age is there are tasty cough drops to be had. None of those nasty ones, unless you dig those.

Sorry to hear your mom is in the hospital again too. :( I hope she gets to feeling better very soon. Poor lady. :(
