It's the most wonderful time of the year

Ah yes. January in East Texas. One could call it winter, I suppose, but a better term would be chaos. One day it's 65 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. The next, it's tornado warnings and a cold front dropping the temps to 40. Rain, then dryer than you can imagine.

Basically what it amounts to is long nights 'round here.

Vent dependent kiddos are suceptible to the weather, and Dakin is absolutely no exeception. For the last while we have had to have him on o2 at night to help with the changes, and we have had to adjust his vent settings some. It is absolutely not helping that the poor guy is constipated AND the fact I think he's dealing with some allergies. Add that to being really tired this week from some scheduling things and there you go. Oxygen, please.

Sigh. We need Arizona weather. At least that's a good honest hot or not hot. Not this up and down and sideways and backwards. I have never lived in a place where the weather is this bi-polar.

Dakin, Junior knows how you feel. He has been dealing with the same weather yuck to.
Hope you get some beautiful weather very soon.

Ugh, sounds very stressful, hang in there and try to find a little bit of time for yourself to unwind a bit!

Sorry to hear about Dakin's struggles with the weather. It must be awful trying to predict what exactly your child may need depending on what Mother Nature decides to throw at you.

If you want to laugh however, we woke up to -34 today with the windchill. Gotta love Winnipeg!
I won't complain however as all that I am worrying about is how many layers of clothing to pile on.
Thinking about you,
