Heart Catheterization

Tomorrow morning (10:00) Phil will be having a heart catheterization . I have a small bag packed, as we don't know long long he will have to stay. So I will not be visiting Monday or Tuesday...maybe longer, depending on what happens. I will let you know when we are back home and well rested.

This is on a neighbor's porch. Can you see what is out of place?

It's Snowing!

It is snowing today! The first snow of the winter. Taken from my window, this is across the street.

Is it snowing where you are? These are some snowy things I have around the house. This is my calendar page.

Hanging on my kitchen wall.

Sitting on my kitchen counter.

On the end table.

On top of our audio rack.

“He orders the snow, ‘Blanket the earth!’ and the rain, ‘Soak the whole countryside!’ No one can escape the weather—it’s there. And no one can escape from God.” 

Job 37

Passed Out In The Post Office

Hi! This is me before the incident.

You see, yesterday at the post office, I had to stand too long. Sometimes when this happens, my blood pressure gets too low and I pass out. This can be stopped by sitting or laying down.  Phil begged them for a chair for me, and they would not get one. Something like this would have been nice, ha ha!

Shortly, everything looked like this.

Then I passed out totally (I blame the post office for no chair). Phil and another man who was there caught me and lowered me to the floor. Then these people were called, plus an ambulance.

Even when I regained consciousness, I could not move. So after a brief exam, they took me to the E.R..

Turns out I have a cracked or bruised tailbone, which will take months to heal. Plus a messed up knee. All from the fainting. So here is where I will be spending most of my time, on a donut cushion.

Oh, and Phil is having a heart catheterazation on Monday morning. It's been a rough week.

“In old age, your body no longer serves you so well.
Muscles slacken, grip weakens, joints stiffen…
Hikes to the mountains are a thing of the past.
Even a stroll down the road has its terrors.”
Ecclesiastes 12

K-Mart Parking Lot

Last night, this is what we saw in the K-Mart parking lot.

“The desolate, deserted trees, the faded earth, the heavy sky...Not yesterday I learned to know.
The love of bare November days. Before the coming of the snow”
