Angry Today has not been a good Day

To start off one of the pulleys on the deck of my lawn mower froze up, then they have to call the rescue squad to pick up my grandpa to take him to the hospital now they are doing dialasies since his kidneys were trying to shut down, then when I get back home I go to get in my truck and there is a flat tire, so I get the tire straightened up, and I get the new pulley on, I get most of the yard cut and the other pulley locks up and breaks the belts, so I say the hell with it and Parked the mower, I changed the oil in the race truck and go to start it and the Starter dies, so I Had a spare one sitting around so I put it on, and now the weed eater want crank

I know the feeling Larry..One weekend about 6 years ago ,I blew up a motor on friday night in my mustang...So I go home thrash most of the night and put my spare motor in ,and Saturday it grenades too..Sunday morning a friend calls wanting me to drive his car...I know it's been a bad week so I say no ,but thanks.I stay home and mow my 4 acre lot ,I like 2 rounds of being done and I hear knocking in my pull behind mower and I jump off the 4wheeler to turn it off and a rod comes through the block about the time I reach down and about broke my hand. I went and sat on the couch and didn't get out of the house again till monday..It'll get better ,just hang tough

Thanks bill he has been in the hospital all but about a month since he went in in January, and had come home 4 times but only stayed about 3-4 days this last time he has been out for almost amonth, and this morning I go over there and he could not get out of bed and he hates rescue squads but he was begging for one to come get him, I just talked to my grandma and he has just started a 4 hour session of Dialasis

Larry that dialasis can be a tough deal. Hope it all goes well. As long as he keeps fighting, it should work out!!
