Just an illusion. But I expect it is plenty frustrating while you are illuding.
Illuding? There. I made up a word just for you.
I hope you soon will be up and around and good as new.

I spoke with FFred this afternoon, he sounds much better, but still a faint image of his former self.
I asked him if he'd been on the forum much, reading 'his' threads. He said he'd only been on twice since he got home 3 days ago, said it was too exhausting to get over to the computer, get set up, get the internet online, get logged onto the forum. By then he is tired, and then just a little bit of reading does him in.

So, for awhile, Fred will be online only a few times a week. He told me he had to sit down to rest after bending over to pick up the Dog food dishes. Then had to be careful setting them down, they were heavy to him, and he'd get dizzy.
Sounds like he needs to kick over the bag of dog chow, and slice a cut in the side of the bag with a machete. Let the dogs have a buffet for a few days.. :shock:

Fred also told me he was told that for every week he was on his back in the hospital, it will take a month to recover what strength and stamina he had lost.. So he's looking at late fall I think before he's chasing the sheep around the pasture again !! :lol:

OK, I'm back to the shop, we have beautiful weather today, so I'm enjoying having the shop doors open and not wearing a jacket !!

I'm sure Fred is enjoying seeing a brilliant blue sky and warmer temps, but like an 'Arnie' movie.....if there wasn't total destruction, that dim glow will soon become a robust blase.......just needs some time to heal. :D
