Today started very,very early when the phone rang at 1:30 am. Now I always dread to pick it up, at this time in the morning, no news is good !!! And it wasn't as #1 son was on the other end. His neck that had been hurting earlier and what he thought was a pulled muscle was now a swollen mass, he was having trouble swallowing and in so much pain D-in-love was taking him to the emergency room. They dropped g-son off here on their way.
G-son had gotten fully awake in the blast of cold air and he just wanted it to be morning so he and pawpaw could play his new operation game !
He was also upset I think at his dad having to go to the hospital so he wanted me to put my arms around him and "protect him" so after about an hour of consoling he went back to sleep.
Just about that time the phone rang again and d-in-love said they were still in the process of running test but they thought son had a very infected lympth node in his neck.
Thankful and very tired I finally got back to sleep about 4 am.
When I got up this morning one of my 4-legged kids, Dolly was limping badly and yelping each time she went up or down a step. My guess is that sometime during the night g-son probably kicked her bad hip. She has been trembling all day in pain even with the doggy asprin I gave her but tonight as I watch her sleep in her little bed beside the computer the trembling has stopped so maybe the pain has eased off.
I spent the day taking down Christmas decorations with the help of g-son who was very sad to see Christmas season end. He wanted to leave the tree up for just one more party !
I let him take off all the ornaments from the tree and put them in their boxes which he really enjoyed.
Now the naked tree adorns my living room once again !
Hubbie went over to daughter's house to replace some insulation that was missing from around her water lines under her house because the cold weather is here.
#1 son and d-in-love came by to pick up g-son and he looked okay but his neck is still swollen from his adams apple all the way around to the back of his neck. I've never seen anyone's neck look like that and he said it wasn't near as bad as it was early this morning. I'm really glad I didn't see that!
This is the back yard around 10:00 tonight.
Yes this is the third year in a row that my Christmas decorations have gotten snowed on !!!
About an hour later it looked like this outside,wow, wonder what we'll wake up to ????
I'm headed for bed early tonight to catch up from last night so hopefully this will be an uneventful night.
I pray that no one gets hurt on the slick roads as they try to get to work in the morning.
Grateful for God's will that son's ailment was not a more serious one and for the blessing of healing.
Good Night and God Bless.
