Update...

As some of you may have noticed, 
I have been missing in action for the past few days. 
A kidney stone, a few days in the hospital, and now I am back home, minus one stone.
I just wanted to let you all know...
I hope to be hanging out the window again soon.


I took this picture of the Male Downey Woodpecker the day before I got sick.

    1. thanks karen, being back home has been good, a little of a slow go. no one wants to be in the hospital, especially during these covid times but the stone was stuck and needed to be removed surgically. i am feeling better/stronger each day and look forward to getting back to normal!! xo

  9. Hello Debby, I wondered what had happened to you. So sorry that the reason for your absence was a stay in hospital and a kidney stone. I have heard they can cause excruciating pain, so Feel better soon. I love your striking photo of the male Downey Woodpecker.

  16. I hate to hear that! I know how painful they can be! The first time I had one, I didn't know what in the world was wrong and I was in SO much pain. Hubby took me to the emergency room. Now I try to be careful but of course you can still get another one. I hope and pray you are feeling better this weekend. Take care and get lots of rest. Sweet hugs, Diane

  17. Oh, my dear friend, I am happy you are home, but kidney stones are not fun. My husband has had those and I know they are super painful. I will be praying that your recovery goes well.
    My husband was retested and I was tested for Covid yesterday. He is still recovering from Pneumonia. He was in the hospital for 3 days. He was tested for Covid but came back negative. He had a CT scan that showed the classic Pneumonia for Covid. So we were tested yesterday. This is a strange one for sure. He has done pretty well. We have been in Quarantine for 10 days.
    As always, I loved the photo of that beautiful bird.
    Sending prayers, love and hugs your way!
