Did I even spell that right?
So here we are in our fourth! Say it again 4th week of this blistery cold weather! We've been in the -late 30 and -40's for four weeks now. Oh God!! This is driving me batty and everyone else in the Yukon. Today we were the 2nd, count that second coldest place in the world, yes, I said it 'THe WORLD!!' It's crazy. We were only at about -50 today and only 2 degrees behind Siberia? Gosh, we are so cold right now.
Hubby blew his fan belt on his start up and then backing out of our driveway. He got suck in the road. His tires were so cold that they just spun and burned holes in the ice so he sank. My van has been running great since we got the power steering leak fixed on Tuesday. So tomorrow we are only using the van again.
I think my sleep problem has something to do with this weather, it just makes one want to sleep and stay asleep until spring. Gosh, it's just so cold out, it chills you right to the bone.

So my poor baby, my Buddy had another episode tonight. He was sitting there playing quietly and all of a sudden he's crying out in pain. Oh boy. I laid him down and gave him some motrin but he said he was hungry and wanted to eat so I got him up and he just stood there crying and screaming so I called the Nursing Station and the nurse told me to bring him in. Yes, finally a good one on call. So we get him ready, he can't lift his legs or anything so I wrap him in a blanket and pick him up and he screamed bloody, bloody murder and dropped to the floor in a heap. Hubby tried this time and got him out to van.
So the nurse saw him and confirmed that is was there and called the doctor. This is the head nurse guy and he's on the ball. I've always liked him. He called the doctor and by the time he got back Buddy was feeling better. We looked the the thing had gone down on it's own. He gives the what-to - that I didn't know. It's not the bowel it's fluid coming from his body. If it happens again we elevate his legs and put his head down and gently push on that sucker. I tried earlier to push it back in and it just didn't happen that why I called again. But he's better now and in bed for the night. It happened this time because he was squatting and putting pressure on that part of his body from the way he was sitting. So we have to make sure he doesn't sit like that and should be watching his activities so they don't get to vigorous and stuff. Yes, my nerves are shot after all that!
