Blizzard..../ Grandfather..

Hi there. We are under Blizzrd conditions here today.. Its started yesterday morning and into today.. I am not sure if we will have power later or not.. It sucks but hey its part of winter. We are suppose to get between 12-16 inches. Well Jeff just called and the side streets are impassable.. Its horrible.. Yuckie... Its 7:25 AM and its this bad outside.. I hate all this snow...

This is what it looked like a two days ago..



And this is what it looks like thos morning.. We had to shovel the driveway before Jeff could leave this morning.. Horrible Horrible... Yuckie... And my arm I fell on when carrying Bri when she was a baby is acting up..




Well hope everyones having a better day than most of us in WI today.. Jeff isnt going out on the road but he had to go to work anyway. I am just hoping they dont have to send him to the Valley (Appleton) today for anything... Emergency or not.. Yuckie..Well I should be going.I will be back in a bit if we still have power. They have been talking about power outages all over the area...


Told you I would keep you updated on my grandfather. Well they are looking at taking him off life support tomorrow. Its up to the Dr and his final say because if some reason my grandfather is still alive in his brain they cant take him off of it.. Then that would be murder basically.. So they have to make sure he is completely brain dead to take him off tomorrow. Ken went to move his leg for him the other day and he just howled in pain.. He is ready to give up and go.I mean my grandfather is. His body is shutting down one thing at a time and its sad.

I get all choked up when talking about him because I didnt get to know him as well as I would have liked. I grew up in MN and he was in Vegas.. I just hope he goes peacefuly and he goes soon to get out of all this pain he is in... I hate to wish for people to die but when they are in as much pain as my grandfather is best that they go and be in peace and that means no more pain..



Well I am off to go warm up and then I will be back later today.. Happy Hump Day... N...

Something funny... I fell and broke my foot today.. I am in pain and have a week off work.. Its sucks. They gave me a shoe instead of casting it and givng me crutches.. Just thought I would give everyone an update.. Will keep you posted on how thigs are working in the nex few days after some of the pain goes away..

So sorry to read about your foot! No fun. I know. Over a period of about 34 years, I broke a foot, three times...The first time I was about 20, then I broke the other about 14 years later--and then, I broke the other one again, twenty years later!! All three times I had to have a Cast and Crutches....By the third time, I had a cas and crutches for two weeks and a "walking Cast" for another 6 weeks...It's been twentyfive years since that last 'break'...But you know immediately if you have ever broken a foor that you have done it again. EXCRuTIATING Pain....!!!So, I truly empathise with you. I'm glad you don't need a cast---it can be very very limiting...!
Do take care, my dear....! I hope it heals very quickly for you.

Sorry to read about your Grandpa. I hope he goes quickly, too, for his sake. It always amazes me that we are allowed to put our animals down---doing the humane thing, but we cannot give our loved "humans" the same loving care. It's called murder when it's a person, but it's considered a humane loving act when we do this for our very dear pets.

Oh no...you poor thing! I am so sorry you are in pain...I bet. I broke a couple of figngers and they hurt like hell...I can only imagine what your foot feels like.

I hope you make sure to rest and avoid that slippery weather. Thinking fo you Tweetey and hope today feels better than yesterday. Yikes...Advil?

Thankss for the kind words you two..

Candy I have a prescription of Advil with Codeine Jeff is picking up on his way home today. I am dealing with just plain aspirin until he comes home...

So sorry about your foot - that's gonna make work difficult for a while. Take care of yourself so you heal well.

Sorry about your grandfather too. I never knew either of mine well either. For most of my life the one only lived a bike ride away - but I didn't even know he was that close.

Sorry about your broken foot. Well, try to enjoy the down time at home. Also, if your grandfather "howled in pain," he can't be brain dead.

Squirl said...

Oh, I hope your foot heals quickly! Take care of it. Sorry to hear that your grandfather's at that point. And it's not bad to hope for someone to be able to go ahead and die. He's in pain and he's ready to go. I just hope that it's peaceful.

I tagged you. I thought it would give you something to do while your foot heals. ;)

Breaking a bone and not being able to work is one of my worst nightmares! I hope your foot heals quickly and cleanly.

I'm so sorry about your grandfather. I hope his end is very peaceful and comfortable. It's so hard seeing grandparents get older. They're healthy and tough for most of our lives, then we have to see them become older and more helpless. It's not easy. My thoughts are with you and fam.

And I'm sorry to hear about your foot! Oh my word, what an awful time for that to happen, when there's so much snow on the ground. I actually saw you on the weather channel the other day - yikes.
