Now Playing: Day 686-The Final Road To Survival
I came close to another record breaking time before finally being able to sleep! My brain finally won the fight dealing with the burning pain, nausea and vomiting around 7am. I started my new meds but of course it could take 2-3 days before I see any relief. By then I will be right back to drinking the darn liquid dynamite. It just never ends. Its like a bad replay of the movie, "Groundhog Day."
Since I mostly did nothing but tossing and turning I also kept Littleblue and Oreo up. By the time I turned over to look at my cell phone it was going on 3pm. Talking about sleeping the day away! WHEW! I knew from watching last nights weather we are suppose to have some wicked storms today. At least at this point I better get up and take a shower then do anything that uses electric before the wicked weather arrives. Since my house falls on the same grid line as the huge mansions down the street with enough trees to fill a forest I am always prepared for the worst when bad weather is in our forecast. Me and my friend got together flashlights, candles and also made sure the back up sump pump was working. Last thing I need is another flood in the basement! As quickly as I got out of the shower and got dressed the lightening and thunder had already arrived. Thank goodness my friend took the fur kids outside once I got up because the wind and rain was horrible! On top of that we had tornados popping up all around us. This afternoon literally turned into a weather nightmare. Later this evening those who live in the area realized just how fortunate we truly were since they estimate so far around 17 tornados in just a few hours. How we escaped I have no idea but someone must had been looking out for those in the surrounding counties. Sadly some were not so lucky. They say during the worst crisis is when you find true heroes and those who risk their lives to help others.
Please keep those who were affected by the severe storms and tornados living in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana in your thoughts and prayers tonight. If you have time to donate please do so to the local Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky Red Cross.
Please also keep the beloved fur kids in your hearts and help all the rescue teams by donating to the animal rescue team of the "Humane Society of The United States" or send donations to your local animal shelters.
We were some of the lucky and fortunate ones who only sustained high wind damage. Picking up fallen tree branches is minor compared to those who are left picking up their lives. Numbers 6:24-26
"The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace."
