Ted is doing much better. He did receive a call from the Heart Center , that he will be getting tested to see if his heart has been scarred from the chemo. They are booked till December. But Ted sees the bone marrow drs. next week. I think they will schedule maintenance chemo again and a breathing treatment. I am so thankful to all of you who have sent us good wishes and offered prayers for us. It is working, thank so much, beautiful people.
I would like for you to pray for our neighbor please. Gary is the man that has been mowing for us, since Ted is not allowed to mow this year. Too many molds and fungi. Gary loves to cut wood and stack it for his fireplace. He was cutting wood today and tripped and broke his hip. He was taken to our local hospital, then transferred to Indianapolis , and they will do a surgery on his hip. Please pray for him, he is a good man , has been so kind to all. Thank you. XO

Thank you Linda. Life is so unpredictable. I am grateful God has helped my Teddy get better. Now I am so worried for Gary. I heard the sirens and saw flashing lights on the road, as I was washing the windows of our car and truck. I told Ted to call Gary...his wife answered and said they were there for Gary and told us what had happened. I think Lynette was home for lunch. I thnak you for all the kind words and prayers. Know that you and yours are in mine also. Blessings, xoxo,love you, SusieDelete
My water comes straight from my well. I don't see many water towers here.ReplyDelete
Adam, I honestly do not know why there's water towers unless it's in case of a water shortage ..I need to look that up. We have a well out here in the country too. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh no!!--poor Gary!! Let us know how his hip surgery goes, ok? Glad Ted is still feeling better. Oh my gooodness it must be getting brrrrr....cold there your way! We still have the air conditioning on here....sigh. LOL! It's not as bad as the middle of hot summer tho....and the humidity has lessened. Hope y'all have a great weekend my friend!ReplyDelete

God bless & prayers for you all.ReplyDelete
Thank you Winifred. You are so kind and we are grateful. Blessings to you , xoxo, SusieDelete
How sad that your kind neighbor fell and broke his hip. Sure hope he goes through surgery well and heals quickly. Falling is so scary. Glad to hear that your Ted is doing better and I hope and pray that continues. Like you, I am not looking forward to a long cold winter...I love warm days! :)ReplyDelete
Hi Honey, Thank you for the good wishes. We are thankful and our dear neighbor will be too, once I tell him others are caring. Ted has warned him of cutting wood alone.His wife said he called her, he had his phone. I think it's Gary's vision, he has had eye surgeries. Stay warm dear girl, I am trying not to think of winter. :) Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
I will pray for your neighbor and hope all goes well with his surgery. Hopefully someone else will take his place helping you all out.ReplyDelete
Ma, We had told Gary not to mow last week, kind wonder if he would have been here instead of in the woods ...can't tell he just loves to stay busy. Such a good man. Thank you for the prayers, i will tell his wife people are praying and truly care. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
WOW, yep when it rains it pours. Love the pictures and prayers continue. Danged sad about Gary too. I hate it when the active folk are stopped in their tracks, but he will be back at it I pray!ReplyDelete
Sherry & jack
Thank you Jack ans Sherry. Prayers are the way we can each other. Gary is a kind man and will be upset not to be working. He's always busy, just loves it. He's retired. His dog passed away two months back and he was not into getting another yet. His wife was home fro lunch and he called her from the woods. Thankful he had his phone. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh dear! I am sorry to read about this misfortune that has come on your wonderful neighbor Gary. Yes, I will pray for him to recover completely from the broken hip.ReplyDelete
I love this time of year and the coziness of home, but I don’t enjoy thinking about what comes next. 😏
Prayers and love...
Oh sweet Vee, you sound just like me. I love autumn and dread winter. The older I get the less I like it . Thank you for praying for our neighbor, such a good man. We appreciate all your kindness. You are in my prayers Vee. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
It's changing here, too. Good news on Ted and good wishes for Gary. Happy weekend.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much Jeanie. Our neighbor will like hearing of any prayer or good wish for him. He is truly a great fellow. Has been so kind to Ted and I. Finally Ted is starting to be better. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Saying a prayer for Gary along with those for you and Ted. Life can certainly change in a split second. xo LauraReplyDelete
Thank you Laura. Yes, in the wink of an eye, Gary went from cutting wood and stacking it , which he just loves doing to maybe never getting to again. But with prayers and God's blessing of a recovery, he will be able to saw trees up again. He has been cutting out the dead ash trees in the woods. The Emerald Ash Bore has killed all the ash trees here. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
We're seeing the weather get cooler here, too, and for the first time I realized the days are getting so much shorter.ReplyDelete
Continuing prayers for Ted and now for Gary. My friend Miriam fell in her living room six weeks ago and broke her hip, too. She was in the hospital for a couple of days for surgery. She still uses the walker outside, but she's scooting around and walks two to three miles every day. Hope that Gary's recovery goes as well.
Carol, Reading about your friend Miriam is encouraging for our neighbor Gary. I pray he does heal completely. His wife still works. I will help them in any way I can. Thank you so much for your prayers for Ted and Gary They help. Blessings to you, stay safe, xoxo, SusieDelete
We have wind gusts up to 30 - 35 MPH and heavy rain but we made it to church, 5 years ago we got SNOW on October 27th and it stayed till late Spring. Be interesting to compare our winter Photos this year ! Take care, God Bless, Gary an Anna MaeReplyDelete
Thank you. Gee, last night was fierce winds. 40 to 45 miles an hour. Scary. I really hate when it snows on trees that still have leaves. LOL. Take care and stay warm. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Susie, I said a prayer for your neighbor, Gary. I'm sorry to hear that he broke his hip and will need surgery. That's so nice of him to be mowing your lawn right now. I'm so glad to hear Ted is doing better, and I will continue praying.ReplyDelete
I love when you talk about the farmers working in your area, cause I appreciate them so much. And did you get the rain that was expected? Susie, there are fires here in California, and it's so scary. The winds have been so strong lately, and there was a fire that started about three hours away from me. So many people had to evacuate from their homes. Please say a prayer that no fires start where I live. Thanks, Susie, and have a blessed week.
Oh Sheri, I have been praying for all of California. It's breaking my heart for everyone. You are always in my prayers. :) I am asking you to always be on the safe side...do not hesitate to leave if it's necessary. I thank you for praying for my Teddy and our neighbor. We all must pray for one another. Blessings to you and your family. xoxo,love you, SusieDelete
Oh No. Get well soon Gary.ReplyDelete
Rick, Thank you. Gary is a great fellow, Ted and I will do anything we can. Ted just can not be outdoors in the harvesting dust and dirt...due to molds and fungi, as he had a bone marrow transplant...so Gary helped with mowing this year. The mowing season is over, but Gary loves gathering wood..just to be doing the sawing and such. You would honestly laugh if you saw the size of his chopped and stacked wood pile. :) Gotta love a hard working man.Delete
Beautiful photos. Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Thank you sweet Pilar. I miss you honey...I will be visiting your blog soon. Please take care and hello to your mom.Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Thank you Susie! Hope to see you soon on the blog.Delete
I am praying for your dear neighbor. A good neighbor is so very special in today's world.
Continued prayers for your sweetheart.
I enjoyed the photos. And High Fives to those farmers who work so hard to feed America and the World.
Thank you so much Carla, for all the prayers. Teddy got a good report this morning...those prayers are helping. The farmers had a bit of a rough start and now they want to get their crops in before big rains or snows. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, SusieDelete
Sorry to hear about your neighbor. Hope his surgery went well and he is recovering. My mother had hip replacement surgery when she broke her hip after a fall. I have osteoporosis as a result of my chemo treatments, so I worry about falling in case I break something!
Hope Ted's new heart tests can be scheduled soon. Sometimes, these long waits for tests can be worrisome.
Lovely photos! I remember all the beautiful fall colors from when I spent 6 years in Wisconsin. One of my friends lived in Indiana and I went to visit her over one Christmas. Can't remember the city, though. It was close to Lafayette.
Ted's heart test will be the first week of Dec...the soonest he could get into that heart center. The Dopplar he has showed his heart squeeze was back to where it had been before chemo. Thanking God. Yes honey be careful , if you have osteo. My sister has it and she is getting shorter and that compresses her organs. Can lead to troubles. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh my goodness! I do pray that all will be well with your friend Gary. Maybe there will be some cancellations and Ted can get in earlier for testing Susie. I do hope he is doing well and feeling the prayers of many. Many he will probably never meet on this side of heaven. Our weather has been nice and crisp in the mornings but warm during the day. Still running the AC and praise God for it! I hear the temps are to be cooler the weekend. We shall see.....I hope that you have a wonderful week dear lady. Hugs and blessings, CindyReplyDelete
Cindy, I think Ted's heart test will be fine the first week of Dec...that is when it was set up. His Dopplar showed his heart squeeze is where is was before chemo. Thank our Lord. We had good results this morning at the bone marrow clinic. God is good. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, SusieDelete
Yep....things are changing. Temps are cooler, crisp feeling in the air, heater in the house on and I have already started taking to running the heated seats in the car! SHHHHH, the truth of that is it just feels great on the back!!! I love this time of yr but I am afraid that when it turns cold I will be rethinking all that!ReplyDelete
Pam, Some times the heat in the car after it has sat in sun feels so good on my achy joints. LOL. I am hoping we have a mild winter...but maybe some hard freezes to kill the bugs and germs. :) Bless you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Susie, Winter will be here soon for sure! I too am not ready for it. Bless your sweet hubby. I am having chemo every two weeks now. We do what we need to prolong our lives. I will continue to pray for him and you!ReplyDelete
Jann, I pray God will be with you and lead you thru to good health. It's a rough world, I would not one without our Lord. Ted got good reports this morning, his hemoglobin is actually in the normal range...first time since last Nov. when he was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. It's been a long year. But today I actually left lighter as we left the clinic. Blessings and prayers to you my sweet friend, love you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Praying for your neighbor, Susie, and also for Ted's tests. AND I am praying for you, too, because being a caretaker is NOT easy.ReplyDelete
Your pictures are lovely and, like you, I am not looking forward to cold weather at all. xo Diana
Diana, We got a good report from Ted's dr. today. His hemoglobin was 13.5...the best it's been since being diagnosed. They took labs for another"who's who "test, that is to see how much of Ted's marrow is the donors. They want it to 100 % It was 96 % last check. They changed up two meds. Ted will be taking those steroids for a couple more weeks, then he will start his baby shots. We had agood day getting to the clinic, no detours.Delete
I hope we do not have a harsh winter, but fear we might, because the last two were not bad.
If you ever see me driving around looking lost, you know I just could not take any more. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, Love you, Susie
Beautiful pictures Susie, yes indeed, winter seems to be arriving early everywhere this year! It was 7 degrees here this morning, brr! So thankful to hear the good news about Ted's reports, thank you Lord! I will certainly be praying for Gary, your neighbor, such an unfortunate accident for him, praying he heals quickly! Blessings, hugs and prayers!ReplyDelete
Thank you Marilyn. All the prayers are helping us and I know that Gary could use them too. He is a kind man. Oh no , I do not want to see ant single digit weather temps. Yikes. I am cold not and it's 68 in our house. LOL Blessings to you and yours, stay healthy. xoxo, SusieDelete
It is freezing here. Only in the 20's barely. This is January weather not November weather. I hope this is not a sign of what our winter will be like. Hope Ted is doing well.
It is possible to grow an organic garden all year if you have a sufficient light source for an indoor garden. Plants need plenty of light in order to grow properly and there are bulbs that can be purchased to provide indoor gardens with the appropriate amount of light to have them thrive and produce a fruitful bounty.satta kingReplyDelete
Use caffeine filled body scrubs on the areas of your body in which cellulite is a problem. These scrubs can help to break up any fatty deposits in the area causing you the problems. Look for an exfoliator that has caffeine, avocado oil and can be used generously in the area.ReplyDelete
By darkening the area where the cellulite is, you are making it look smaller. Even out the skin's surface by exfoliating the skin before the tanning lotion is applied.ReplyDelete
