Looks like I was the only one who was in bed comforting his mutt @ midnight. Oh well, He was not liking the fireworks. Normally they dont bother him, but he must have been feeling stressed, so I got to put on music to muffle the noise.

I loves me some Patton.

Bored and sick in the hospital the last two days I finally turned on the TV and caught some "King of Queens," and got some older ones with Patton. Not bad.

We went to Peoria for a hockey game and didn't check the weather beforehand. Snowstorm on the way back. I was white-knuckling it most of the way home. Glad we didn't drink at all, blech.

I know those roads. I have spent time in some of the finest ditches around there this time of year.

Glad you got back safe.

I measured 8 1/2 inches on my car around 6. I live sort of near the lake. I let one f teh cats out and coul tell the wind is from the NE. Lake effect will dump on us for sure.

I promised to spring my dad from the nursing home tomorrow. Fun.

Icky details:

12/20 - they drained 1.4L from my left lung
12/25 - they drained 1.2l
12/27 - they drained something like only 400 or 600 when they installed the PleurX catheter (permanent port)
12/31 - we (nurse, my mom) drained 1L using the new port (1L is my daily limit, I don't know why yet, will ask that today at dr appt)
1/1 - we (nick and me) drained another full 1L.

If I have to do this every day, then that will suck. It isn't a painful,procedure, but the aftermath can be very painful (first time after we used the new port, I was in such pain, they rushed a bedside chest X-ray, which turned up clean).

All stuff to talk about today and tomorrow at my two dr visitis and I meeting with hospice nurses, but damn, I am looking at a lot of fluid build up.
