Pretty Hearts, Parents and Husbands

As we have been busy making heart garlands and pouring glitter over styrofoam hearts and other crafty things someone let winter in again! I’m not going to say anything about who that may be but someone did say they were sending me some snow!

I personally did not know about this development until 3 a.m. when I received a text saying there would be no school today. Or Library due to weather conditions. I looked out the window and didn’t see anything but apparently it rained last night and the temperature dropped to single digits and the roads were solid sheets of ice. On I-40 there were at least 40 semi trucks lined up on the shoulder of the highway. The sun is acting like it has no idea what is happening, just shining bright as ever but it’s 20 before the wind chill and the wind is vicious.

No mind, Tommy has been getting all his pre-op stuff done today and he had no trouble on the roads to OU. I’m assuming some of the staff did as they still haven’t shown up. Yesterday sister Susan let me know she had Momma in the ER and they were taking her by ambulance to Minot as she was septic. Well I’m gonna not comment on that right now. But we were all terribly worried. Have you seen the weather up there yesterday? Well finally they got her in and settled and began giving her IV antibiotics and fluids and trying to figure out where the infection was. If you don’t know we are a morbid family you will shortly. My Momma is a Charleston girl born and bred. Old South. And of all the folks who could be in the same hospital and in the same room with her is an older black woman from the same place. What are the odds of that? I sent my sister a text. ” May God Help Us All.” I’m still not sure why they brought her to Minot. I think it’s because the nurses at St.Andrew’s just weren’t having it again. She is not a good patient.

Anyway they are all on their own as we get ready for surgery tomorrow. Tommy’s meeting with the anesthesiologist now and that’s the final thing. Hopefully then we can eat.

I wish you all a warm and safe day and weekend! Do a little self-care!
