Well we had a quick breakfast at home but we did indeed spend the day out...we spent 8 hours at the hospital emergency department with the elder Mrs. O. ( having lunch from the hospital cafeteria) It would seem she has pneumonia. We have opted to bring her home to care for her; at 96 change is very hard to take and we felt we could care for her better here at home...one on one treatment is usually much better for the patient.(not so sure about the caregivers though)
All was not lost though...between propping up and covering said patient and accompanying her to the Xray dept., feeding her supper and running to the cafeteria for lunch I did manage to do a bit of knitting. I made not one BUT two scarves while waiting for a diagnosis.
We have had a few sunny days here and it has caused the snowy overhang at our front door to be cause for wonder...each morning I wonder just how much lower it can droop before actually falling...
The suspense came to an end yesterday with a forecast of fog, mild temps and freezing rain.
Mr O had to go up on the roof to do some shovelling. With the amount of snow we had on the roof and freezing rain forecasted it would have made too much weight for the roof; so that brought an end to the snowy overhang at our front door. Sure made for a lot of shovelling once it all came down!
Our backyard guests continue to entertain us while feasting at the four feeders we have made available to them.
I leave you with this...I am not sure how I forgot to mention one of the gifts we received from our oldest grand daughter. She is fourteen and did a self portrait for art class. This is the photo she used as inspiration.
This photo was taken the day she was discharged from Sick Kid's Hosp. in Halifax. She is about 6 months old and is being held by her big brother Keith.
This is the pencil sketch she gave us...
Keep in mind she is only 14. Bravo Savannah! Thank you so much!
