Day 117

Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
What a day it has been here in the valleys. Lots of snow. Beautiful fluffy flakes. I wish I just didn't hate winter as much as I do. Mostly because I just don't like being cold.
When I went to the unit today everyone had already been informed by Nicole that I don't like snow and I would probably be in a foul mood. I thought that was very funny that she thought everyone should know that about me.
We immediately left the unit and went to the big bridge to watch the snow and eat lunch. Nicole loves the snow. Everything about it. Snowmen, skiing, sledding, angels, snowball fights.
Me, other the other hand, I am happy to have the hot chocolate waiting for the outside players.
Christian and I went to lunch with Natalie and talked all about snowboarding and how Christian can't wait to get on the slopes. I hope he will be able to do that this year. Things are about the same with him. I wish I had better news to report on him.
Nicole is making progress everyday. Today she didn't need any pain medications until the very end of wound care. That is progress.
I marked off 6 more things on my list today even though it was snowing i still have to keep my mind on getting though my list.
I am still looking for a couple of young men to help me out for 6-10 hours over the next few days. Ten dollars an hour, minimum 3 hours at a shot. Anyone interested give me a call. It would be best if 2 boys came at the same time.
My dad was diagnosed with cancer again today. This is the 4th time. He will be having surgery next Thursday and will start radiation. He has had cancer before but they have never done radiation. I wonder what to expect. I hope all goes well. I put his name on the prayer roll today. We know the power of prayer and I know God is listening.
Thy will be done.

I am so proud of that Nikki girl! I wish she was home so I could show her my Halloween costume...I might even spiff it up some and go as Junie B! Nikki would LOVE that :). Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you, her or your family :)
