It Sure Is Winter ....

 The weather here has been truly every kind of winter condition. Snow, ice, sleet, and plenty of wind.  Cold freezing temperature also.  Just when I was hoping for an early spring .

  This is just one of the snows . It has snowed more and more coming. That arctic cold is coming our way also. Kind of hard to stay warm at times. 

   I will give you an up date on Ted. He is still at his son's house. Going to doctors  and having Physical Therapy.  He saw the eye specialist on Monday and was taken off some of the meds and the eye drops were lowered.  The shingles in his eye make him have really bad pain at times. He has found that ice packs help with that somewhat .  A couple of Tylenols also.

   He has been getting some PT and says it wears him out but makes him feel he is doing something to get better. We get to talk and text all we want, or  as much as he can do . Today Ted goes to the pulmonologist. This will be an important appointment.  We need to know more.  Ted is still on the nebulizer and the oxygen. His oxygen level is lower, which is promising.  

   My children and grands have been helping me .  I am so grateful for my family and friends.  I want to ask you, my blog family , to keep Ted in your prayers. We are so very thankful for the good wishes and prayers.  You are in ours. Be safe. XO

    1. Thank you Edna. Yes, family is so important all our lives. That is why this pandemic totally stinks, can't hug our children and grandkids. I have always told my daughter they were my very best gift in life. Hope you got plowed out. I have been checking out battery powered snow shovels. LOL Blessings to you, stay safe and warm. xoxo, Susie

    2. Oh Susie, this cold (record breaking) weather is miserable! Your photos are pretty. That is something good about the winter! I’m so thankful for your family and friends too. It’s so hard to be alone. But I’m thankful that you are able to communicate with Ted. I know it has to lift his spirits (and yours as well :) ) You are both in my prayers.
