It has been four months since my last post, so I know you are wondering what in the world is going on with old Bob.
As some of you may or not know, I was diagnosed early this year with pulmonary fibrosis. Not good, but not necessarily bad. There is no cure, but the prognosis is that I still have hopes of staying on the top side of the sod for a few more years. How many more depends on how slow, or fast, it progresses.
I am not worried, nor am I going to dwell on it. I have just turned 85 and am still going strong, at least in my own estimation. However, I have slowed down. I tire easily and get short-winded. To that end, I am taking a twelve week session of pulmonary lung rehab. Three times a week, I go in for an hour of workouts that are designed to mak my breathing easier.
The workouts are going quite well, and I haven’t fallen off of any of the machines yet. 🙂 The staff that is working with me at Shannon Medical Center are very friendly and professional. They know what they are doing. I am actually having fun and I look forward to each workout. I twist, jump, skip, and roll……. and that is just getting into my workout clothes. 🙂
As you can see, I still have my sense of humor and that is a big help. I think they say, “a laugh a day, keeps the doctor away”, or something like that. 🙂
The point of this is that this will probably be my last post. Time will tell. I intend to keep up with my photography as best as I can. I now photograph from my car exclusively. Drive-by shooting, you might say. 🙂 (credit my friend, John English for providing that bit of humor). The camera is starting to get a bit heavier. Anyway, I will be still posting the results to my gallery, that you can access by clicking that little button at the top of this page.
I want to thank you, all of my readers for your support through all the years.
I will close with this photograph that I captured just this morning. A Great Blue Heron photographed here in San Angelo near Lake Nasworthy.
