What's Good for You Isn't Always True

Backyard Friend

Photographed 6/06

It's a curious thing when things don't go as they should. We spent all day Friday in the emergency room at St. Joseph's because I had a sever reaction to a hepatitis-B vaccine. It was supposed to be good for me but,alas good plans gone awry and yet another trip to the hospital.

I'm OK now after some medication to counter the effects. I missed my dialysis on Friday and had to make it up at 6:30 Saturday morning. Friday caused fear - I had all the symptoms of a Heart attack - fever, nausea, tight chest and shortness of breath.

Thank you all who sent notes of well wishes.

That chipper little squirrel and I both are glad you're back.

Mark, I'm so glad you are doing well. What a scare that had to be! Prayers for continued good health coming your way, too.

Your squirrel is very inquisitive, bet he was looking for you.

What a cute squirrel.
I've been away and am just starting to catch up with your posts. Looks like loads of great pics to see! :)
I sure am happy you're doing better and it was a reaction to the vaccine, not a heart problem. Sounds like things are improving, over all, and that's good news. Keep faith, Mark. Things are looking up!

nicola, Yes there are two who have discovered this new food source and make the 18 foot climb to our deck to raid it when we're not watching. They also found and are enjoying are strawberry plants on our deck!
