Hubby took this photo the other night after a monsoon rain. It hasn't been tweeked at all. I should take a picture of the ground around here. It only took a couple of storms and it looks like we all have lush lawns now. In fact, Hubby has had to mow already. For the rest of the summer, that will have to be done, at least, every week. It grows so fast right now, and the snakes love it. All of us neighbors have a pact to keep the yards mowed for that very reason!
I never had a chance to play with photoshop yesterday. I took Mom to the doctor yesterday because she's had an ongoing issue with junk in her lungs, and hasn't been breathing well. She's on oxygen 24/7, with severe COPD, so anything that compromises her lungs is not a good thing.
The Dr. decides to give her an IV of steroid. Great idea, it will open up her lungs. They put in the IV with a saline solution and while they were switching to the needle with the steroid, Mom's hands started tingling, turning lobster red, then felt like she had hands full of nettles. Then it started moving up her arms! Then she started shaking (probably from anxiety), but she thought she was going to start convulsing and got even more scared. Poor Momster! At one point her fingernails turned an awful shade of greygreen. They gave her Benadryl, then gave her a low dose of Xanax to calm her down.
They think it was an allergic reaction to the alcohol preservative in the saline solution since the steroid they gave her is what they give people in the emergency room when they can't breathe.
Anyway, it turned into a 3 hour visit at the dr. office, but in the end, she was breathing better. She had to be brought out to the car in a wheelchair because she was so loaded on the Xanax, but that only lasted for a while. By the time we picked up prescriptions and got home, she was feeling much better.
What a weird day... I'm hoping for a much more uneventful day today!
