In His Element


After a trip to the ER and a week + of the 'COLD FROM HELL',
Ron is back doing what he likes best.....
pruning the daylights out of everything within reach!!


Here he is pruning the Hemlock that was crowding the Moon Maple
 and the Japanese Bloodgood.

*************************

Ron had to go to ER because of chest pain he was having 
while working in the garden 10 days ago.
It was NOT a heart attack.
They figured it was angina pain which went away after a shot of nitro.
All is well now.

  1. I'm relieved to hear that it was "only" angina. Tell him to take it easier!

    1. Better than a heart attack, Craig. I have my eyes on him all the time when he is out in the garden. Hard to hold this guy down when he 'thinks/wants' to do something!
      We can deal with this angina thing....we have to, right?

  2. Angina, scary, Ron, if you are outside, sit on the ground, and use the nitro spray, If inside,lie down and use it. Cold air, walking into a head wind, excitement, panic, danger, or spicy food can all trigger it, You will know when that heavy dull pain lasts and lasts, Take care, dear friends, of yourself and each-other. Hope Sophie is there with heaps of TLC, just what the Dr will order for sure.Hugs from down here, getting into winter mode, the "merino" inner, under and outer wear in full strength now. On the farm down south. 0 Celsius at noon the other day, way too cold for May.

    1. We both carry out nitro spray everywhere we go. this was the first time Ron had used his.....mind you the 911 person suggested we do. Now we know and are not timid in using it again. It really works quickly to open up those affected arteries....amazing.
      Sophie was there right with Ron when I saw that he needed help in the garden. He was sitting down and she next to him. It was sweet to see.
      We are fine now, just needed a 'refresher' in the use of nitro spray.

      Oh it's getting chilly there!! But I see you have all the Merino lined up and ready to wear!! As do we for most of the year here. You just never know.

    1. Yes, all is well, Martha. With heart disease there are a few things that take getting used to......like knowing your limits and knowing what to do should something arise. Now we both know.

  5. Now you guys need to just cut this out (and I'm not talking about the trees). Like Ron, I LOVE pruning the daylights out of things!

    1. Ron really does take it easy in the garden. He was filling the wheel barrel with dried leaves and taking them to the compost area. Now we know what to do should this happen again, Mitchell.
      Oh YOU pruners are all alike!! lol

  6. Take it easy, and best wishes!

      Are you sure you would trust an OCD pruner in your garden, Joyce?

  10. Nitro is a good thing if you need it. Note to others: Not to be used willy nilly by friends not dxed.
