There are other things that bring on hacking attacks as well. He had been looking forward to cutting the grass. He thought it would be nice to do something other than sit in his recliner or at his computer. We had some nice weather this week. He got on the mower for a short time. Big mistake. Hack hack hack.
|He wanted to do this so badly.|
Another breathing issue has to do with neighbors burning. Our property is surrounded by people who own large plots of land. They burn their woods regularly to keep down undergrowth. They also often burn limbs and trash. This week there was a pretty large burn on one side of us. Rudy had radiation appointments, so there was no avoiding going outside twice - to get in and out of the car. Our house was enveloped by smoke. For some reason, when neighbors burn on any side of us, the smoke often settles on our property. It's crazy. Rudy's still paying for what that did to his breathing.
|The wind begins to shift and the smoke started making its way towards the house. |
We had to leave soon after this photo was taken and by that time,
it was so smokey around our house, you could hardly see.
As for today... thankfully, the rain has cleaned the air. It's not warm or pretty, but Rudy was able to go to the car and back without a hack attack.
