Hi GTT, sorry about the lack of activity here. I haven't been on the net much. I have been having asthma issues for quite some time and it all came to a head about 3 AM on Dec. 26th. We had a blizzard Christmas day but managed to get to sister-in-laws for supper and just hang out with relatives. When we left around midnight the roads were terrible but we got home. Well, a couple hours later I woke up unable to breathe well, tired to get control of it with inhalers with no luck. I woke up my wife and told her to call 911 as I wasn't able to get any results. The EMT's finally got here in bad conditions and by 4:30 I was at the ER. I don't remember much of them hauling me out of the house and the ride or all of the ER. My wife and the EMT's were convinced it was a heart attack but it was asthma, worst attack I ever had though.
I was released Tuesday afternoon with no explaination why it got so bad but now I have to use a nebulizer twice a day and it's a big help. I've got some minor vision blurring and feel like some memory issues but doing ok for what it is. I have a doctor appiontment next week and am trying to get in with a pulmonary specialist asap.
Anyway, sorry about all that but I got some seat time today. With no end in sight of the cold I had to take advantage of an above freezing day to make some room around here clearing snow! The hospital doc had given me a work excuse for sick leave for the week so I've been off. Here's some pics of clearing the white stuff that doesn't look like it will be melting until spring thaw!
I missed reading stuff here! ---DAC
