Scotties Toy Box

A short update.

Filed under: My Life and Rants, News — Scottie @ 09:19

Thank you everyone who sent well wishes and good thoughts.  We rode the storm out in style thanks to Ron’s current bosses and my old ones.    I did not realize the new electrical back up system of 6 huge generators was tied into everything now, unlike when I was working here and it was iffy and only red plugs and what was thought to be an emergency need.   So yesterday when I saw the black smoke roll out and knew they started the generators I thought it was a test.  It only later that Ron told me  were running totally on generators and the entire area had lost power. (   **** Side Note:   Sadly I just got up from the chair I am in to get Ronnie something as he is trying to sleep in a recliner with out his c-Pap in the office / Lounge they stashed me now that they have to have the ICU rooms back, and my back gave.   I have pushed it to its limits it seems, I have done what I had to but that is really past my restrictions.  I have taken my meds and may have to double them, which will make me sick.  But I couldn’t stand up and had no leg strength.  I got sitting down again and now trying to breath slowly over the pain.  Guess no more road races for me carrying ruck sacks.  🙂  )  So this morning after a breakfast of either a hot dog or a sausage, and a scoop of oatmeal, we had to move everything to the car.  Ron was pushing that because we would have had to stay in a big open room on the floor and he wouldn’t have slept and I told him I would have to sit in the car .  I never complained once nor let on how bad I was but lets say I was not in a good place physically.   But then there were a lot of people a heck of a lot worse off, so I did not say anything and sucked it up.  I have a bunch of pictures but will wait to post them from my IPad.   Ron noticed I am short of breath on our trip out to take everything but my HUGE over heavy electronics bag to the car, and figured out my sugar is very high.  Oh well nothing I can do now about it.  The pain I am in is really the issue I am stressed about, I can barely stand it, it is eating me.  But more meds will make me even shorter of breath and nauseous,   We have no update on our home and I am using Ron’s laptop to blog with and my Ipad to hear news.   But no news on our area.   So our situation is this.  We sit in semi comfort, while we wait to be released to go to an uncomfortable situation at best.    Thank you to everyone who has been concerned and following our situation.   Hugs and love to everyone.  Now I will try my best to catch up with all of your blogs.  Thank you.  Hugs


  1. You are a trouper. It’s one thing to have emotional/psychological pain/worry, but now physical pain. SHIT! so sorry.

  2. I’m “liking” this only because I’m glad you and Ron are OK … but not for the fact you’re in pain. Hopefully, it will ease up after some R&R. Please continue to take care of yourself, Scottie. And do continue to keep us posted. Fingers crossed that your home is OK.

    • Nan thank you. You don’t know how much it helped to be getting the support and concern from all of the friends I have made online. As I sat there thinking with each gust that shook the big thick windows I sat next to, I thought did that one take my home with it. But you all have been grand. I won’t forget your care and support. Give me a few days to rest and I will be back. Hugs

  4. You over did it, but it’s not like you had much choice, I’m so glad the house is still there unhurt and you both can get some much needed rest.
