Another 3 inches of snow fell today starting at about 10 A.M.. At least it wasn't a wet snow like we had over the weekend. The picture was looking through my storm door when the snow was so wet. I just know I had a heck of a time getting the snow off my car. It was so heavy and deep when I got it loose it came off in chunks. We got up to 41 degrees yesterday so I ran some errands and went to check on my other half at the nursing home. His nurse was leaving going to work at another job. She is also expecting her first baby so she didn't really need trying to lift patients.
They had a birthday party today for all of the February birthdays. He actually went and had fun. He won a bingo game. I stayed home because of the snow and road conditions. At least it wasn't a wet snow this time. Some schools let out early. I know the visibility wouldn't have been very good when I looked out the window. You couldn't see the house next door very good and it isn't that far away. I can only imagine what it would have been like on the highway. I know they would have some icy spots from where the snow melted running across the road.
I can remember coming home from a trip getting caught in a snow storm. You said a lot of prayers and neither of us really wanted to eat when we got home because of the driving conditions. You had to not only think about yourself, but there is always some one driving way to fast for the road conditions. You would think that they had a little common sense when it came to bad weather.
Decisions, Decisions, we have a big decision to make of whether to see another orthopedic doctor about hubby's leg. They will bill medicare, but not medicaid because their office in Kansas. Others do, but I guess they are so big that they don't think it is their responsibility. I would like to know if I have to pay some out of pocket what the cost might be. Just a rough idea, because I would like to hear if there is anything that can be done to help other then surgery. We have to decide what we are going to do before long. If they say, there is nothing that can be done then he will have to except that it isn't going to change. Pain pills whether strong Tylenol or other that is not the answer.
Of course getting answers is like pulling teeth. We have had several changes at the nursing home. There will be a new doctor coming. I don't know if he or she has arrived yet. Some of the nurses are leaving. One on day shift and one on night shift that I know about. We will just have to set back and watch to who comes and goes. .
My lap quilt is coming along still have a ways to go. I am changing colors alot and that takes more time. I have several needle threaded so that I am not constantly threading them. I have a question for the stitchers out there. Do you have problems with needles breaking where you thread them? I am trying to decide if I just got hold of a bad package of them or what.
Mother Nature is not being kind to a lot of people. Please be careful if you have to be out. Take care.
