Winter weather and other breaking news

First off, we were under a freezing rain warning last night (Sunday) and I heading out to the doctor this morning I was created with the most amazing trees. While thankfully the roads were clear the trees, grass and shrubs were coated in a thin layer of ice. The day was gray but the trees made it very magical. The glisten even without the sun. Pine trees looked as if they were made of velvet, because of the sheen the ice gave them. Cedars looked as if they had all been frosted. Dormant trees appeared to be made of glass. Even on gray dreary days, God shows us his beauty.

Also, a quick not about my doctor visit today. She told me I was definitely wheezing, to which I told her I could hear. Said my throat was starting to become infected and that I was running a low grade fever. She prescribed 2 inhalers until my asthma clears up and then just the Advair for a month or so to keep it clear. She wrote me a script for the z-pac and told me if I wasn't better by Friday or had any more trouble call her and come back in.

So I should be all fixed up soon.

Mom's surgery on the 16th is quickly approaching and it has left us all with mixed feelings. We're very happy the end is finally in sight and that she will finally regain her strength and stamina, not to mention just feeling all around better. But we're also very nervous, she's high risked and even with both doctors being so confident, it still leaves that little doubt in the back of your mind.

We're turned it all over to God, or at least we're trying and know in our hearts she will do wonderfully, but if you'd send up prayers on her behave, we would all be very grateful!

Well that's all the breaking news I have, I hope all is well with each of you and that you have happiness, health and Love!

Praying for you all to get better and for your mom to have a successful op.

It sounds cold! I thought you lived in Texas? Does it get that cold there? Curious me.

I'm glad you got the inhaler and your asthma checked out. Best of luck to your mom for a successful surgery and quick healing!!

Thank you so much for the prayers. She needs all of them she can get.

Yes I do live in Texas and I'm always so surprise by how many people think it stays warm here all the time, but in fact it gets down in the 30's and sometimes lower every winter. We don't see a lot of snow in and around Dallas, but other parts of the state do. What we get is cold, wet, rainy and often icy weather. Thankfully it's a short season. It's still hot in October and usually warm by mid February.

Summer however starts in April and doesn't end until the end of September or beginning of October.

All such is the life in north central Texas.

Thank you again for the prayers and for stopping by.

Thank you so much Oct, I was surprised she prescribed both inhalers but since I really don't like using the rescue inhaler I was pleased as punch she did.

I hope all is well with you and your hubby. Take care and be safe during all this winter weather.

Hey girl, it sounds (and looks) beautiful! We just got rain and more rain... Not that I'm complaining; I don't want ice, that's for sure!

I'm so glad the doctor gave you a Z-pack. Hopefully it will work pronto!

Still praying for your mom and believing for a terrific outcome.

Hey Patty,
I was so glad she gave me the z-pac too. One I'm terrible about remembering to take them and this is just 5 days and two it usually works pretty darn quick. My throat isn't sore today so that's great!

Thank you so much for the prayers. I can't even express just how thankful we all are.
Big hugs,
