The cold weather is here and I am not really ready, but I guess I will have to be. We got a trace of snow, but the wind chill was single digits. 

We went to the doctor's today and they are running  some blood studies to see what that will tell us. There is not enough fluid  on his stomach to drain at the present time, but we will do do an another ultra sound in three months and go back to see the doctor again. We have to find a way to help without causing other problems. You have to find a delicate balance with him. I know that I felt better after talking with her today. I really like her every time that we have seen her.

I found my picture on Amazing Places and Breathtaking scenery facebook page.  I  always find pictures that I like. They have beautiful pictures from all over the world regardless of what season it is. I love the snow scenery even if I don't really care to drive in it. I know I am a little weird. They are talking that we could have the snow this weekend. I was a little scared of what I would find this morning when I left the house and it was still dark, but I made it just fine. We had a very good driver to take us to the city, who took good care of hubby getting him in and out of the van. Some areas in the city you had a thin layer of ice. He said that he was use to snow and ice because he grew up in Iowa. The wind was strong when you were on the highway.

After we got back, I stayed and had lunch with my hubby than I came home. I was going to take a nap, but figured I would feel worse if I did. My fruit basket came in that I ordered so I am enjoying red, yellow delicious apples, pears, oranges, and it even has some pieces of chocolate that melts in your mouth. The basket is cute. 

Northwest Missouri University where I went to college is playing in the football playoffs, If they win, they will play for the national championship, but I don't think I would want to go to the game with the temperature only getting to maybe 19. I am cheering for them and hoping we go all the way. 

Hope you all are having a good week, staying warm, and safe. Hugs and Prayers are going out to those in need. We can never have to many and I believe that is what has kept us going. Take care.

35 here today but not windy and no snow. Some little tiny ice balls in the night. Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting, you always warm my heart. Yes, some difference from SC-ha! Had to buy some warm boots. One day last week it was 9degrees-ha! Be careful when you go out and about. Hugs and prayers, K

Shirley, You are so right about the prayers. I am sending some up for you and your husband. Of course for all those effected by the storm system. We were a bit lucky so far. I never did like driving in snow and ice...but did it for 30 years getting to and from work. People need to realize the speeds need to be adjusted for the conditions. :) Take care stay safe and warm, xoxo,Susie

At least you got some sort of answers and you like the doctor. That's something. I'll keep praying. It's all ice here. And it's not melting. We're not equipped for this kind of weather here. So we have to stay home till Monday at least. Take care of yourself Shirley.

Prayers do make all the difference. I'll keep praying for you both. Stay safe and warm in this wintry weather. Hope it doesn't get too bad.

I'm glad that the storm mostly missed you- such a relief that you don't have to deal with that.

I'm glad that you have a doctor that you like and trust-- that really helps. I'm praying all goes well with your husband--

All is well here too- my surgery was all good :)
