Thank you Blondie, I am adjusting.  But it really sucks (LOL, get it?  hehe)

These winds come from the east, down the face of the mountains, known as downslope winds (canyon winds in local talk) and pack a punch.  This time was a doozy.   There is a house on the north end of the block, their cute little tree in front blew over, a big tree in back crunched the roof, and the tree in back next door took down the garage roof.  They had just sold the house three days before.  Wow.  Here's your new home, huh?

I am glad you are catching up!  Sorry about your BIL, best wishes to him.   I am so familiar with bowel problems now ... although through all this, I go like clockwork.  My gut just wants to stick to other organs and wander around where it doesn't belong.

Anti M  Sorry to hear more problems.  Glad you got it taken care of tho.  The pumps can be bothersome but they are necessary!   Here's to a quick recovery. 

So the neighbors were trying to trade trampolines.  LOL  Ouch  a shed and power meter!  and Truck!  Glad your roof held up sorry about our arch.  Sounds like what we call a wind shearer here or straight line winds.  Very nasty spring storms happen all over!  Hope the clean-up is swift and the Insurance companies pay up.

Still dealing with computer problems, computer tech's and medical program people..  What a MESS!  I finally got all the checks re-entered, but now am behind from last wed. to today!  Did get all billing done thanks to the tech's that work for our billing center.  I almost feel caught up and relief.

My new issue, is the BIL who went to VA with us, is back in the hospital...went in for old problem that keeps propping up, he had pneumonia this past winter and now they think a strangled bowel.  I told them that days ago!  I feel they need to go to a different hospital.  They gave him over the counter meds, prune juice and apple juice.  The man hasn't gone since Sunday!   his stomach was blotted 3 times is size, they pulled off 600ml. and put him on a nitro patch.....His original problem was his breathing, his poop problems started after being in the hospital!

Anti M, sorry to hear about the "purse", hope all is smooth sailing from here

Comment by Anti M yesterday

Thank you everyone.  I had an infection, so they cleaned it out and put in a wound vac ... basically a vacuum sealed bandage.  I get to carry around a little "purse" with a vacuum pump attached into my side, and have a visit from a home nurse every three days.  One day and I am already tired of my little constant companion.  Should be about a month.

We had a bad windstorm while I was in the hospital, wow.  Winds up to 90 mph. Lots of power outages, and hundreds of down trees.  I lost my pretty little garden arch to a falling branch.  Our neighbors to the back and west had their trampoline fly over the house and onto a car.  But our neighbors directly to the north had their trampoline blow over the fence ... into the yard of the neighbors whose trampoline went flying.  LOL.  Our south neighbors lost their shed and the entire power meter off the side of the house!!  East neighbor got a crunched car trunk.  But our beautiful new roof and gutters held up perfectly.  We got very lucky.

Comment by Blondie on Saturday

So Yesterday (Friday)  I'm thinking go pick Connor up after work and "play time"  Well suppose to go to Shelby, half hour drive, I can stop at save a lot...noon his mom calls me other grandma is sick, someone else picking him up rom day care, I have to drive an hour to get him now, okay different store, will have to eat out....Hubby called and said he'd go with me.  So @^pm we're off...Just pulled into driveway to pick him up and JD (his dad) calls, Emily is going to close for me, I'm off work now but my car isn't done (getting breaks on it) So we pick Connor up and head back north an hour and 15 mins.  we'll eat  there....long story short....Connor peed his pants so ended up going thru McD's drive thru and headed home.  What a night!  He went straight into a bubble bath...he was Happy!   I'm tired this morning and busy, busy at work....
