Good Morning,

It is 7:06 AM and you may be wondering why there isn't a completed Blog already.

This is Mary writing here: I insisted Dad go to the dr. yesterday because his left foot and leg are so swollen. Really, it is almost twice the size of his other leg, both the foot and about half-way up the leg. The dr. didn't seem too concerned (but it's not his leg!)and he wrote Dad a prescription for an antibiotic which he is taking. He sees the foot dr. next week and the dr. said to have him "look at it." I want Dad to see another dr. and get a "second opinion." I am trying to work that out now. So please think of us.

I'll be back here later. Dad is resting, sleeping soundly so I am glad he can rest. We have his feet propped up, but I really don't think it will help this.

So long for now. I plan to be back later today to let you know how Dad is doing. He loves all of you very much.

"Daughter Mary"

Good Morning. From DAD
This is Dad writing this at 10:05 A M . I have rested all morning and I know that I do need it. I keep my golf cart at the foot of the stairs to the basement, it is very handy, a few minutes ago I drove to the mail box for the Mail and our paper. I don't want anyone to worry about me, I am a strong old man, and I do not intend to let this hinder my work in producing tomatoes, roses and smiles.

Mary is taking perfect care of me, even brings my food to my bed side, come on I am going to take another nap.

Good morning DAD and Mary...

I write with tears on my eyes. I feel so badly for DAD. It is good you got him to a doctor and even better that you are looking for another for a second opinion. Do give him a hug and tell him he is in my thoughts. ...Sara's Mom

Thank You for the update. I'm praying that all will be well! That is a concern for sure!

I'm so sorry to hear that you had to make a trip to the doctor's. I'm not surprised to hear that you are still getting about! But, try and take it easy for the next few days.

Chewy and Oreo are sending you lots of smiles and kisses.

Dear Dad, Ms. Mary, and sweet Prince:

As I have had a similar issue most of my life, this is what I have been advised: Elevate the legs and feet as much as possible, using pillows or a wedge when lying down; take breaks from walking or standing as much as you can, elevating the legs and feet. Limit the intake of liquids to 2 liters per day if possible. And if you do not have one, get an EKG. This test will determine how your heart and the heart valves are functioning. Many times there is nothing to worry over, but it helps to know if there is a valve idiosyncracy, murmur, etc. I do not take any drugs for this and am still very much alive and kicking ;) as you see. Sending love, PRAYERS & PURRS to you all, as ever, from Jamaka and fams <3

Dear DAD and daughter Mary,
Thank you for going on line and sending us smiles in person. Thank you, Mary, for being realistic and writing to us.
I agree with Joan, Mary and the rest of the gang to get a second opinion.
Be careful walking. Mary can clip a rose for you to enjoy. You don't need to walk to them.
You are the Prince for a day or two. Enjoy the pampering and please, please keep you leg up and rest. We know your strength, and Mary does, too. Do your best! I hope xbold coffee is not off limits for now. We love you. Aloha...Sara's aunt

Dad, I came over from Sara's blog, wondering why she thought you needed a smile. Now I know and I'll keep you in my prayers. I hope the leg gets better really fast! I agree you should go get another opinion right away!

I stopped by from Sara's blog! Please take care of yourself so you can grow beautiful tomatoes! The world can never have enough of those! :)

Dear DAD and Daughter Mary,

I also came from Sara's blog and knew that you needed some smiles. We will keep you in our prayers and cross all our fingers and paws for you.
Eva is a sweet little girl so I'll tell her to cross paws for you right away.
Take care! We can't wait to see those beautiful roses and tomatoes from your garden.
