Sleeping last night I was almost off the bed, my lovely wife had moved over pushing me almost off the bed. Waking up I thought I would not wake her and go around to the other side getting back in bed on the other side. Bad idea, I fell stepping off the engine box part of the floor at the foot of the bed. My left leg knee and left foot hurt, nothing broken, just hurts putting weight on the foot and knee. I woke her up when I fell.

I stayed inside all weekend and went to Dialysis on Monday and Wednesday. Tuesday we went to Carlsbad hospital for a blood draw. Today (Tuesday) even before leaving town I got a call with my direction for the week concerning my INR (blood thickness) continue what I am doing (my warfarin) two days a 5 MG pill the other days 2.5 pills. On dialysis days they give me Heparin is an anticoagulant (blood thinner) each treatment.

Afternoon 108 Degrees,
We were having an hot uneventful day until about six o’clock last evening.
Watching there was an explosion and “stuff” falling on Buster. Going outside I found the propane gas line and uncovered leaking gas, I shut off the valve on the tank stopping the gas from leaking. I tried to call the telephone number of the gas company but no answer. The fire department was called and they were able to get a telephone number of someone at the gas company to come out. They will come Monday morning to repair the line. It did take a while for the propane gas company man to arrive.
My left leg is getting better, not completely, the ball of my foot still hurts and the nee is still tender.
