  1. Hello y’all. It’s been a while since I’ve been here. A lot has been going on. First and foremost I got my Lil Dude to keep me company. I also got served divorce papers. I was somewhat overwhelmed for a couple days but I’m trying to stay on track. It really didn’t come as a surprise but he didn’t even ask if we could work it out. In the whole year I was gone, I only talked to him 2 times on the phone. It was always text. He wouldn’t answer my calls. I’m pretty sure if I had gone back I would still be going thru it. He didn’t want to be married to a disabled wife. That was apparent. I’m sad about getting a divorce but it’s only because of the process not the divorce. I will write more later.
  2. Love you girly. Thank you 💕💙
  3. OMyGoodness. The cursive is really hard to read and makes my brain hurt focusing on it. Maybe it’s my eyes or the color but I can read the printed words fine. Sorry. Just so you know. I have stomach problems too. GERD. Gallbladder or something is giving me extremely bad indigestion. I know I have gall stones. So I am going to a gastroenterologist. He wants to look inside so surgery is in my future. Lucky me.
  4. Hello Bill. You’ve been thru the ringer. So sorry. I had 3 strokes and have aphasia and pseudo-bulbar-affect plus a host of other maladies. There is a medication called Neudexta that really works for emotional lability. I took it for a while but I didn’t like some side affects. It does work tho. There are a bunch of us that has either separated or divorced after the stroke/strokes. Its heartbreaking but: One thing at a time....... One thing at a time........ Best Wishes SweetMom

  7. Now wait minute y’all, it is as complimentory as we Southerners can get under the circumstances. Lol
  8. Hello all. It’s been a while. I’m still in Texas. I’m still making flowers. I went to my dr here and had an X-ray. The pain in my hip has gotten worse. I thought it was my sciatic nerve. Nope. Doc says I need a new hip. I’m really scared about being put under anesthesia. But he assured me that they cannot do it while I’m awake. So in the not so distant future I will get one.
  9. My personality changed. I’m no longer the person I was.
  10. Tracy you just keep hanging in there. The blas don’t last as long as they used to with me. So maybe they won’t with you either. A lot has happened in my life as well.
