No time for a post today as the farmer is not well. It came on quite suddenly last evening when he began to sweat heavily and to feel sick and very dizzy. He went to bed but feels no better today if he tries to get out of bed. He tried to eat scrambled egg on toast, but was immediately sick after a couple of forkfuls.
So long as he lies still he is quite chatty and I must say he looks a lot better today than he did last night. I have managed to get him an appointment with the doctor on Thursday afternoon. In the meantime I am making sure he drinks plenty.
I have been doing various farm jobs and am sad to say I am finding them quite difficult. Things that I found easy and enjoyed doing a few years ago are suddenly very hard going.
The friends whose cattle we keep for winter came and fed up and bedded down this morning. I dealt with the hens, feeding, watering and letting out into the fields. I fed and watered the farm cats and fed the wild birds. Then I took Tess for a morning walk. During all this it was pouring with rain so I can't say I enjoyed it much. Now I have one last load of ironing to do and things will be back to normal.
I am hoping that the farmer will be too by tomorrow. He does have problems with shoulders, neck and ears and is awaiting an X ray and CT scan at the hospital, so I suspect this is somehow connected. He looked dreadful last night - pale and wet with sweat. Today he is back to his normal colour and as long as he lays in bed he says he feels fine - so we shall see what tomorrow brings.
