Several folks have met my ornery wife and also know she has had some surgery recently and then another one today. She will have one more before this is done. Today was knee surgery. My wife takes pain really great and amazes most doctors. However, she admitted today that as she woke up in recovery, she hurt...bad. She asked and got morphine. I had a 5 1/2 hour wait through surgery, recovery and getting set in the room. On top of that we both had to get up at 4:00 this morning in order to get to the hospital at the required time. Yes, it has been a long day but fortunately she was doing good when I left. I'll just let her rest tonight and head back to the city tomorrow. I've even fed her animals and done some chores she usually does. I told a couple others so may as well post it here too. Sunday morning we got up late and although I looked and did not see any deer close I went onto the front porch to check the temperature. That is when I saw the deer. Holy cow! A herd. They just stood by the driveway and watched me. I called to my wife and we both watched through the window. She counted them as they crossed the driveway. 21 deer total. Yes, we feel blessed. I also had 4 by the house just about 10 minutes ago but they are gone now. But, I want to thank all for your concerns over the ornery one. She will appreciate it too.
