In the interest of full disclosure

Good morning friends. It is another beautiful day here in Tally town.
I have things I want to talk about today. Tom has a hernia !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He has had one for a while now. Maybe two years. Of late it has gotten worse. He will have to have surgery. When and where is the question. Another big question is how to pay for it. We have no health insurance. So it will come from out of pocket. It (the hernia) has started to affect what he does.
So it will have to be pretty soon.
Another thing I want to tell you is that since Sunday I have been having dizzy spells. I had my first one while out feeding the coons at dark thirty. It was a trip trying to get back in the house.
My blood pressure is fine so it is not that. I have had 4 more dizzy spells since Sunday night.
So life has not been as fun the last few days. Any way I just wanted you to know why I had not blogged since Monday. I feel pretty good this morning so I think it is pasted.
Don't worry about me it is just part of life for me. I was an alcohol syndrome baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you for your comments. I love company I do not have to clean house for!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love you all lots, Bambi, Happy and Fern


  1. Oh I am sorry to hear about Tom! That is not good! Be sure to take care of yourself also. I miss hearing from you and thought you were just busy out in the yard. Take care, my friend! Keep smiling!

  2. Fern, we do worry about you - and hope these dizzy spells pass. And that Tome can get his surgery - from what we hear, it's painful to have a hernia.

    Lunch break's over - back to work.

  9. Hi Fern

    So sorry to hear you and Tom are having health problems. I had a rash of dizzy spells last week and that was no fun. Hope you feel better soon and can enjoy the nice weather. If you can go the this link:
    you can see the quilts I have made, including once I just finished with my mom. If you can't get the link to work, email us at and I will send you the link.

    Have a great weekend.
    Heidi, Tucker, Daisy and Leo

  10. Yikes! Sorry to hear about your health issues.
    Hope you will all be on the mend soon.


  11. Hope Tom gets some relief from that hernia!! And your dizzy spells!! Some friends and I were just talking this evening about a mutual friend who had the same thing happen to her. As it turns out, she had inflammation of a nerve which goes from your ear down into your neck. After a course of antibiotics, she's feeling much better and the dizzy spells are gone. Hope you can get some relief, too - keep us posted.

  12. Fern you take good care of you and Tom! Try not to overdo only have one you ( and one Tom!)

  13. Fern
    Sorry to hear about Tom and you!! Hopefully things work them selves out so that Tom will be able to get the surgery soon, You take care of yourself, do hear me???? just take it easy!!
