The snow is almost gone....

On Wednesday the wind and snow was so bad we could barely see the house next to us.  Thursday was COLD COLD COLD and so very icy that we were out of school for a second day.  Friday was a bit warmer but our driveway was one big sheet of ice--by the afternoon, though, it had weakened in the sun and S and I were out there breaking the ice up and shoveling it away.  Today?  Almost all the snow has melted away and it is wet and muddy and looks kind of dismal.  Not the last we are supposed to see of snow, though!  Forecast says more snow later this week.  We need about three more inches to break a record from the late 1800s.  I'm so ready for this winter to be over :p

I finally got the call to schedule Izzy's MRI--got through all the screening questions and registration information and the lady hadn't realized Izzy was a heart patient.  So she can't schedule the MRI until we get cardiac clearance because of the sedation.  She called me Friday late afternoon and I immediately called over to the cardiologist office but her cardio was already out of the office.  The nurse pulled all the paperwork and filled it out and said he sometimes comes back into the main office before he goes home (he has three different offices plus he sees patients at the hospital as well--I am always pleasantly surprised when he stops by our room when we are inpatient for things not cardiac-related :)  its nice to know he keeps an eye on her even when she's not directly under his care!) so she might be able to fax it over the same day.  No phone call back from MRI Friday, though, so hopefully Monday.  The sedation makes me nervous but now that its going to happen, I kinda just want to get it over with so I don't have to worry about it :p
