Snow Is Not My Friend

I know I'm trapped indoors for most of my days recovering...but I love the snow.  We had a big BIG blizzard in NYC (like you didn't know) and I had to take a peak outside to see everything.

Everyone kept telling me, including my father who doesn't even live in this country mind you....he called me at 7:30am to say "You know you're on lockdown, right?".  Still, while my mother was at work, I took a very slow, calm couple of steps outside to embrace the stillness that never comes to the city that doesn't sleep.

I couldn't go very far because, well, if I fell, it would be off to the emergency room I would go!  Being on Warfarin aka Coumadin, a blood thinner, causes me to bruise very easily and a fall could cause intense internal bleeding.  Sometimes I feel like a ticking time bomb with this body of mine but it's the only one I've got, so I've got to take care of it and stay indoors, despite everything...even if it means eating everything in the fridge...and half a cake.

Be Well!


  1. I had no idea, friend. I am thinking of you and sending prayers and thoughts.

  2. Thanks Anna! I can use all I can get.

  3. Stay strong Ellie...you're gonna recover completely. Glad to hear you went out for a lil snow time :) makes me nostalgic about my childhood.
