Day 14 Thanksgiving

Posted by molly2350 in molly2350's Blog, 27 November 2014 - - - - - - · 12 views

Just got back from the hospital. After 2 days of tests and minor surgeries Buck has finally had 2 solid days of deep sleep. When I showed up at his room they were getting ready to bath him. They always ask that I come back in 10 or 15 minutes. I find this almost humerous since after 15 years there is nothing he has that I haven't seen. Even if there was t...

Going shopping

Posted by Pearls in When your soul dies, 27 November 2014 - - - - - - · 14 views

My husband took me clothes shopping for my birthday. What a treat. I admit i was fearful of the whole dressing room scene but the salesladies were very helpful and understanding about my husband going in the dressing room to assist me. I have lost 40 lbs since my stroke and truly needed clothes that didn't fall off of me. For many months food tasted and f...

nontraditional Thanksgiving

Posted by lmctrouble in Lynda's thoughts, 26 November 2014 - - - - - - · 35 views

I took over doing Thanksgiving several years ago when it became too much for my mother to do. Since I wasn't able to cook this year we went out for our Thanksgiving meal today (I had the shrimp basket since they didn't have the Cajun shrimp pasta I really wanted) - which means I get to sleep in and relax tomorrow (other than occasionally getting out of m...

1. I am thankful to have amazing family & friends who support and help me whenever I ask for help.

Season's 'eatings

Posted by ed54 in ed54's Blog, 26 November 2014 - - - - - - · 48 views

Good morning all;

I suppose this is my second blog. I’m going to try to get these blogs out once a week or there abouts, we’ll see. At any rate, my parents visited me yesterday for about 2 hrs and that was really nice. They live about 75 miles away and were on their way to see another sister of mine as well as visiting me. My father just turned 92...

Give Thanks November 2014

Posted by lwisman in Lin's Musings, 26 November 2014 - * * * * * · 35 views

Give Thanks November 2014 Thursday (Nov 27) is Thanksgiving Day in the US. I thought I would make a list of things I am thankful for this year.

Things I am thankful for:

1. Friends and family who help with those things that are difficult for me. Like cleaning up messes or taking the garbage to the curb.
2. I can still cook. This helps add structure to my day and keeps me thi...

A candle flame

Today I had a visit from an old friend, old in the sense of from a long time ago, young in the sense of who we were back in the days when I came to this area in my mid-teens. He was the younger brother of one of my friends, the young one, the teenager, when the older ones seemed like men. He knew of some of my boyfriends pre-Ray, remembered my wedding, th...

A Moment to Celebrate

Posted by SassyBetsy in SassyBetsy's Blog, 23 November 2014 - - - - - - · 68 views

Last night I went to a conference at a hotel by the sea. I enjoyed the beautiful sunset over the ocean. I left the wheelchair in the corner and sat in a real comfy padded seat verry grateful for a soft seat. At the end of it there was a little reception with wine bar. I waited until everyone else went through the little buffet line so I could walk throug...

Hello all,

It's been a long time since last entry. Grandma Adile is doing great, she's learned to carry her own paralysed leg, and she even learned to climb up and down the stairs in her own apartment, thanks to the great physio therapist's efforts.

I'm now sharing a video of my grandma with you all, this was taken on day93, she's trying to walk with he...

Hi all, today marks week number 7 that we buried mom. It is still so hard :( I am 47 and Mom was 72 when she passed. What an experience this has been. 2 good things--Mom is not in pain any more and I will see her in Heaven and now I know how a funeral works and what all you have to do as in dealing with the funeral home and cemetery. What I really miss is...

And Life Takes Another Weird Turn

Posted by lydiacevedo in Conversations with myself, 19 November 2014 - - - - - - · 83 views

It's been more than a year since I updated this. In the "Reader's Digest Condensed" version:

The relationship didn't work out and I am, once again single (See more about that below)

I changed jobs...to a better one with better pay

I moved to the bigger house next door to where I was living (good thing too)

My eldest, Garion moved "back home" (wait for...

Remembering Friends and Other Updates

Posted by srademacher in spacie1's Blog, 18 November 2014 - - - - - - · 71 views

This past week we lost a friend here in the park. Roger was a very active member of the HOA and worked on all the events in the park with his very active young wife. He was in his early 80's and had been diagnosed about a year ago with leukemia. The last four weeks he had been pretty much homebound with hospice so we knew it was coming, but still sad to s...

Up Until Now

OK…so this is to be my first blog entry (I guess) so first of all for all that read it I suppose I need to tell you a little bit about myself.
I was born on Aug. 26, 1960 around Sacramento.
When I was 9, on March of 1970 I had the first of 12 operations for an appendix that had ruptured 5 day before hand. Peritonitis spread through out of m...

Mom back in hospital

uti, confused

Yesterday I took Mom out to get 2 of her prescriptions and pick up ice cream. When we got back home in the driveway she refused to get out of the car because she said it wasn't her house, she didn't live there, and wanted me to take her home. No amount of reasoning would change her mind. She has lived in the house for 20 years. I got a neighbor who lived...

MY STROKE OF INSIGHT

Posted by ajcee in ajcee's Blog, 15 November 2014 - - - - - - · 75 views

Yesterday, Tony Fraiser introduced the board to “Ted talks” I was intrigued with the two videos he posted and searched the “Ted” site and discovered a fascinating account by a brain surgeon who had suffered a massive stroke. She revealed some paranormal experiences similar to my own experiences that occurred while in hospital several years ago suffering f...

I'm Getting Therapy Now!

Posted by fking in fking's Blog, 15 November 2014 - - - - - - · 61 views

I got therapy twice a week but my walking is not good at all. My left leg is still paralyzed making it very hard for me to move my left foot and leg. I'm doing the best I can and hopefully in due time I will be walking much better. They stopped the OT until I can walk better then I will work on that for my left arm and hand.

I can still drive my car and...

Being a Caregiver

Posted by Debbyavery0 in Debbyavery0's Blog, 15 November 2014 - - - - - - · 128 views

I thought I would take a break today from discussing daddy's stroke and just talk about my very limited experience as a caregiver. I just got my mind wrapped around the fact that my little mama has Alzheimers earlier in the summer. Daddy and I got her to the doctor and he put her on an anti-depressant, Alzheimer's medication and a tranquilizer. During...

My Emotions are Just all over the place...

Posted by Grannyjudymac72 in Grannyjudymac72's Blog, 10 November 2014 - - - - - - · 2,048 views

I wish I could just sit down and cry. Maybe a whole river of tears. To wash away the feelings that are roaming around in my head. Feelings of frustration, anger, tired, overwhelmed, etc. At first I was more patient with things. I took most every day in stride, for the most part anyway. I did have very tired days, but lately it seems my days are more full...
