Hello my friends, what a day I had today. I woke up this morning to an out and out snow storm. Terry lives 2 1/2 hours north of me so I called her right away as I was worried about the roads....she had already left. About an hour later she called me, the RCMP had stopped her and told her the highway was closed, she had to turn around and go home. By this time she was closer to my home than her own but they wouldn't let her through, she passed many cars in the ditch and 2 accidents. She doesn't mind driving in the snow, but didn't like having to turn around on the slippery highway. She called me after she was home safe and sound and I was so relieved. She told me the weather was much worse heading north and Bonnyville was having a blizzard by the time she drove into her garage. I promised her I would still keep my appointment this afternoon and would call her when I got home. It was only 10:30 and my appointment wasn't until 3. I was already showered and dressed for the day as we had planned on going out for lunch with a friend and then to Costco.
I enjoyed my morning coffee by the fireplace reading my newspaper. Actually it was a nice day as I was able to watch golf, baseball and hockey. Tonight my eyes are shaped like squares.....am waiting for Grey's Anatomy to come on, I love that show.
The snow stopped by early afternoon but I still had to clean my car off before I drove into the city. There were many cars in the ditch on the highway, must of been from early this morning. It was -7 and the wind was cold but the highway was melting and clear. Winter has come so early this year.
This was my car about 3 hours after the snow had stopped. I am hoping the weather is good tomorrow as I have to drive into the city for my cortisone shot....Unlike Terry I don't like driving in the snow.
Not much to report from my appointment, I need a cat scan, MRI and some kind of scope )sorry I don't know how to pronounce the name of it) but it's to check the bladder, liver and pelvic area. They want to find the source of infection before treating me.....are you ready for this, I have been put back on an antibiotic. Dr. John has consulted another doctor who feels we should do the test and know what we are treating before admitting me to hospital for IV antibiotics. So, here we go again my friends. I promise not to complain anymore. I will do what has to be done as it is what it is and complaining will not help me one bit.
I am not upset by any of this, as I love this time of year for sports. I have the World Series, Canadian Football playoffs, Curling trials for the Olympics and of course hockey season has begun. If I have to stay inside I will have lots of sports to watch which I love and also have time by the fire for reading ..... now what do I have to complain about. Terry will be here next week for a couple days as we both want to stock up on some things from Costco for the winter. All is well my friends and I had a day with no pain or discomfort....love it!
Good Night my friends and God Bless........:-) Hugs
