Just got home from seeing the specialist.  All good news at the moment.  She is very pleased with the healing so far.  She said it is so good that instead of going back in 2 weeks I don't have to go back for a month!!!  Just keep putting the silicone cream in the divot and  keep it moist.  So I'm very pleased with that.

We have so much snow there is nowhere to shovel it to.  In my header picture the snow is now higher than the hedge!!  Apparently we haven't had this much snow since 2008!! Youngest son and grandson went out of town (3 hours south) to a hockey tournament on Friday night.  The town then got over a metre of snow dumped on them Friday night and Saturday.  The highways were closed and they didn't get home until Tuesday-instead of Sunday!  Grandson thought it was great-hotel with a swimming pool and missed 2 days of school. Son not too impressed-2 more days on the hotel bill, 2 days of work missed and a hair raising drive home when the roads were finally opened on Tuesday!  But they got home safe and sound so that was the main thing.
It's actually supposed to get above zero in a few days instead of endless days of -30C.  Then we'll be complaining about all the water and flooding!  Can't win.
That's it for now.


  1. Excellent! That sounds like good news on the healing front.

  2. Hi Janice, I found your blog. I am Maureen from 'fromonedaytothenextone'

    Sorry to hear about your skin problem. I lived in AB too, Medicine Hat for nine years and have lots of family there. See you have lots of snow. We haven't had much this year and yesterday it got up into the mid 70'sF. Cooler again today though and the heating is back on. I will read your blog now I have found it.

  3. The header photo is impressive! we don't really get snow like that here but i imagine it's a nightmare for logistics and keeping to plans

  4. So glad to hear everything is healing nicely, excellent news. Thomas would have been tickled pink to be stranded in the snow especially if it meant having days off school. I'd have been on your son's side just wanting to get home safely. Hope the hockey tournament went well and your grandson's team made it worth getting snowed in for. xx

  5. Bugger that snow! You can keep it! Glad to read you're healing well xx

  6. Thanks for your comment on my blog Janice. I can't believe how much snow you're having there - we've been having warm (?!) days here this past week!
