Winter Trouble


Our Canadian winters are beautiful but they come with their share of problems. This past week, my brother fell on ice and "slipped a disc" - so he's laid up and off work for a month. Then this morning I was walking the dog, hit some ice and suddenly found myself on my back with everything hurting. Turned out to be just a sprained wrist but it's going to slow me down for a while.

The good news is my trip to the emergency room. We hear a lot of complaints about our emergency room wait times, so I brought the book on Canadian history that I need to read for my non-fiction book club. My only complaint: I only got 2 pages read - there was very little waiting. The whole thing, including x-ray took an hour.

Waiting anxiously for spring ...
