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.

Not horribly so here--maybe 4 inches of snow. It's just so...very...cold. I'm working from home, under a comforter, with two dogs laying on my legs.

I know what you mean. My AC crapped out on Christmas Eve, and I did not get it working again until last Friday. Had to sleep with the windows open and fans blowing. Thank goodness it was mostly cloudy and cool for those days.

About 8.5 -9 inches on top of my car and it is still snowing-lightly but accumulating.

I have shoveled 4 times since New Years Eve

That sounds so terrible.

My "vacation" early next month is going up to northern Wisconsin for a pond hockey tournament. I'm thinking gaining weight for the new year instead of losing it might be the way to go. Extra layer of blubber.
