My wish came true




Well today Al woke me up to a wonderful thing---my wish came true for snow. Even though we don't have as much as up north,
it is still fun to see. My batteries were weak, so the pictures didn't come out too great, so they are charging while it's still snowing. I really want to go out and play in it, but the drugs are still hanging on after yesterday.

My epeduram went great except I got nauseated before they took me in and was in pain, so they called Al from the lobby and the doctor said it was okay to take it with a very small sip of water. Al thought they had finished already and the injection had made me sick, so he returned to the lobby to wait it out. Since my withdrawals are still kicking, I cried like a baby and they ended up giving me Vestid because I didn't want to feel a lot of the pain while they did the ededuram. It's totally different than the one they give you when you have a baby and ouch, it hurts the entire time. My back feels like a million bucks, but it's still numb and the effects won't kick in for about 2 weeks, so I have to take things easy and no lifting during that time. My blood pressure has dropped from 198/126 to 144/102, but my pulse rate is still high. I still haven't gotten the results of the ultra sound and blood work, so Dr. G said to call his office today---hope the snow doesn't close everything down.

Well, I am going to decorate our tree with the mom and dad, and grandma and grandpa ornaments, then finish up my nativity tree. I went to Goodwill last week and you would not believe what I got for $.99---a Waterford crystal tree ornament still in it's box. Tia if it were a snowflake, I would send it to you, because I know you collect them.

I hope all of you have a great day and are enjoying the Christmas Season. My head is spinning so going back to lay down for a little until it passes. Love and hugs to all of you. Pat

The snow was lovely wasn't it? We recieved THREE inches.....and our wretched power went off. HA!
Hate that.
But Miss Priss built us a fire because the boys abandoned Mom and Little Sister to go "sledding" and to have "snow ball fights" with friends. Hubby had to go to work.

We survived it though. HA!
I think every other front yard in Baton Rouge had some sort of "snowman" in it. So cute!

We were all very happy. I didn't hear any complaints from anyone in town.....as you know it's a rare "treat" to get a snow like that.
