Well after seeing mom and her condition today I called and got
her right in. She is lucky I did not call the paramedics the night
before. I slept with one ear open all night long. Her breathing was
somewhat labored and her color was off. She was very weak but still
fiesty. The doctor diagnosed pneumonia and had them take an x-ray
of her lungs. She is on high powered antibiotics and will go back
on Friday. When my mother won’t eat anything or want to drink
coffee..or eat sweets…. well .. we KNOW she is sick or something is very wrong.
The doctor visit took nearly 3 hours. It was cold and raining and
mom was exhausted. I was right behind her in that category.
So that was pretty much my whole day today. The wind is fierce
tonight and we have flood warnings. I am just glad it is not
snow! I hope we don’t lose power, I sure would not like that
scenerio with a sick person in the house.  Sad
I got this picture in my e mail and had to laugh at how long it must
have taken them to make them..
Thousands attend global warming summit in Michigan!
Soon they will be all gone!!    Thanks for the laugh Anita!
