Haven't been on here much for the past few weeks. DH went to the Dr for pain and ended up having an emergency operation to remove a section of his bowel and his appendix. We are new to the "major operation" thing and I have to say it hasn't been all that much fun. Poor guy is getting really frustrated because he isn't regaining strength or stamina very quickly, but at least he should be good as new once he heals. I guess it's a good thing that it isn't time to do any planting yet. Before he went to the Dr, we had cleared and rototilled our big garden space, so that's done. Now we just wait impatiently until planting time. At some point I will have to get rows/paths, etc ready - not looking forward to doing that by myself!
