Yesterday afternoon, the joint doctor came by the hospital room and asked Jimmy if he wanted to go home! Of course, he did and they have been talking about a severe winter storm coming in with a major accumulation of ice over the next few days. So we were trying to escape and get settled before any precipitation started.
They were discharging people left and right and it took us less than an hour after the doctor told us to the time we were in the truck heading out.
We came home, got settled, took some phone calls and then Jimmy decided he needed to nap and I laid on the couch. One and a half hours later I woke up, stayed up for about 30 minutes and then went to bed for the night. Jimmy woke up in the night and went to the bathroom and I didn’t hear him. I woke up about 4:30 for the day and feel so rested.
Jimmy has already had home health out to visit today and not sure when therapy will make it out with the weather. We are prepared for the bad weather. I have the wood stove going and it is about 75 degrees inside, the weather is about an hour away according to the weather reports. I have stuff for chili and soup and omelets, so if we lose power, we are good, I have hand sewing I can do but I have my quilting machine back from servicing so I will be working back there until we lose power (if we do). Friends and neighbors know they are welcome to come stay if they lose power, we will feed you and offer you entertainment and a place to stay (even though we are not an official shelter, we will be offering shelter!).
Those of you in the path of Winter Storm Jupiter, be safe and stay in if at all possible. If you have to work, be safe and don’t put yourself in harms way. The Weather Service is asking for reports, so don’t forget to help them out.
