HI ALL,
IS EVERYONE HAVING A HAPPY NEW YEAR.? Sorry about you folks who are in a deep freeze! I've watched the weather news, and it appears you guys out east are getting ALL THE ROUGH WEATHER THIS YEAR. I do hope it warms up for you soon. I have not experienced those kind of winters since we lived in northern Montana back in the 70's while in the USAF. Now those were some tough winters!

When we moved to Colorado, it was bliss....compared to Montana. We do have some really cold winters and lots of snow, but it does'nt last long, thank God. Stay warm and safe, guys. God bless. Evelyn.

It's been quite the ride Evelyn. -26*C really bites but it is too cold to snow except for lake effect stuff. It is now back up around 0*C and lots of snow. +7 and rain expected tomorrow and then back down to cold and a blizz on the weekend. My snow blower crapped out yesterday, broken shift cable,. I had to find a used part on eBay as the machine is 32 years old. No parts available anymore. We'll see how that pans out. Stay warm.
Love Gerard

Hi Gerard. Yep, I agree....you guys are getting a tough winter! Wow, no snowblower with that weather....not a good thing. I would say that 32 years is a long time for a snowblower. I think you've got your money's worth from it. Time for a new snowblower! Yes?

Manual shoveling is not a good idea. Your health is more important.....buy the new machine! Take care...stay warm. Hi to Laura. God bless. Evelyn.

Hello all! It's been a while. FOR ALL THOSE OXYGEN USERS:

I have been researching the Inogen One system, (advertised on TV). I have found it difficult to deal with the heavy tanks that never last long enough....usually runs out at time most needed. Try finding a place to replenish O2 supply while traveling....not easy or even possible in many locations.

When I called Inogen One, I was fortunate to connect with a lovely, knowledgeable, kind, helpful lady. I fully recommend my customer rep, Debbie McCie, phone: 800-839-6680.

It maybe covered by Medicare or other insurance.

As for me, I am buying my own unit...the G3 with lifetime warranty. Debbie was extremely helpful, assisting me to find the right solution for me and my unique needs. Ordered it yesterday, shipped today, will have it next week. yeah!
No more heavy tanks...taking up so much room needed for other things!

Good morning from the ICU!
As luck would have it...the head and chest cold turned into bacterial pneumonia with side of viral RSV, a very virulent virus effecting the entire respiratory system. It is fast moving and there is no cure, (as yet)! It must just run whatever course it chooses till it runs out.

Thanks Mimi and Maggie. They are indeed a first rate team.....and are all working very hard. Personable, kind, compassionate, professionally excellent care from the nurses, MDs, specialty support, p.t., nutrition, O2 therapy....are wonderful, and I feel safe in their care.
This experience.....not one complaint!

Friday, admitted to ER, to their specialty unit, then to ICU, NEXT day, I think, expect transfer to step down ICU unit as soon as abed wants my ICU spot, maybe tonight, or tomorrow. There for probably 2-3 days or more.

This virus is serious stuff... Hits you like a ton of bricks. It is systemic, downward spiraling symptoms hit the entire respiratory system with a vengence! Their is no vaccine, it depends on rapid , aggressive treatment, support for your own immune system, at which time.... Mine is severely compromised.

PRAYERS UP PLEASE! Evelyn.

Home now, for a whole week. So good to get back into my on bed....sleeping like a baby. I'm on the mend, improving by the day. Now, I'm getting antsy, wanting to plan a trip or more. But, must wait till this thing is completely gone, before making actual plans. Don't have time for this "holdup"! Goliath is waiting and ready to show me some new adventures!

Goliath is going to Grand Tetons this summer, (Mikki and me), on our next adventure. There are so many beautiful trips awaiting in my home state of Colorado. How lucky am I to live in this extraordinary mountain state?! My Inogen battery operated O2 system will allow a freedom to allow me to travel in higher elevations. I look forward to it. I love these mountains....so much to see and do here.

This recent illness is but a blip in time.....won't prevent my trip plans. I had a couple short trips last year, not nearly enough. This year will make up for it, to be sure.

Oregon and Washington calls to me, as two of my granddaughters live there. I'm considering a run in that direction in late summer, early fall. Both my girls want Nana to visit.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! May the luck of the Irish be with you! Evelyn.
