Stay out of the heat, the doctor said

According to the doctor, any time the temperature is over 85 degrees, Cliff is supposed to stay inside.  We don't have air conditioning, but the house IS about ten degrees cooler than outside.  And sitting in front of a fan helps a little... at least it dries some of the sweat.

Obviously, Cliff is going to do what he's going to do.  I've given up nagging and worrying (as much as possible) and I just hope the good Lord watches out for him.  There's probably a special angel riding on the tractor with him.

Wow I was out for just a short time around noon and it sure is hard to breathe in this heat. We do have air conditioning and I am staying in, it just too rough for me and the pup outside today.

I can see why you would be worried. He definately has someone watching over him. I really don't see how he can breathe out in this heat. That is what it was supposed to get here today. I haven't kept a check on it. Hope you can get some relief up your way soon. Helen

please stress how dangerous it is for him in this heat.  He does not need to be out in it.

sometimes its just hard to teach an old dog new things, know what I mean? Cliff is a worker; a hard worker at that. Hard to get him to change habits and lifestyle I would imagine. My FIL is just the same; 82 years old and still climbing on tops of roofs doing things he shouldn't.

well I hope Cliff listens to the doctor but he's a man and I'm sure stubborn. LOL. Just hope he takes care of himself.

You are so right....you might as well stop worrying.....I had to learn to trust C.Y. with his own health.

 Cliff has proven the Drs. do not  know all they advise. they are being safe, Cliff is an example of taking his care in his hands.  We pray he is Not to soon with these things, But he is happier!  Good luck~

Oh my.  I would have worried about CLIFF being out there in that heat.  Glad all is well.

Oh, Donna... I wish he would stay out of that horrible heat!  I wouldn't even go work out in it, and I'm (supposedly) healthy!  He is one strong man, that Cliff!  I pray there is an angel on his shoulder, and have no doubt that there is!
