I left San Antonio on Sunday. I was reading and writing at the hotel, inside and out, and spotted this small resident. She was hanging out on the Riverwalk side of the hotel and was quite cooperative for photographs.
Prayers for a friend on Puerto Rico and for all the people and creatures there and in the paths of the other hurricanes and storms.
Float… but some of my patients are not floating. They are sinking.
It has been clear and below freezing for a few days now. I have more than one patient who is not exercising or not taking care of their blood sugar or not eating adequately…. because they don’t have heat. They are staying in bed with an electric blanket or staying in one room because they have an electric heater plugged in. My house has 1930s wiring and I am told that it is a fire hazard to plug one of those heaters in.
I went home yesterday and my house felt cold. I checked the monitor: 49 degrees. I had cleaned the heat pump filters two days before and then had forgotten to restart the heat pump. It was up to 57 degrees by this morning and will be warm tonight.
Prayers and donations for the people in all our areas who do not have adequate heat….
