“When Doctors Are Patients,”a book published in 1952, is the result of 33 doctors whose lives took a different direction after suffering a serious illness, thereby gaining insight as to what their patients are truly experiencing. Similar books have been written and are available through Amazon. They became better doctors after learning to identify with th...

I knew him from his youth to old age, he became old too young,he went too soon. I know we all go through so many changes. But how to reconcile it all. Missing you Ray.

I sure have missed blogging!

It was 2 weeks ago today, I buried my Mother at the age of 72. I am so happy for her and so sad for me. The last year of mom's life she was mostly sick or just too tired to do anything. I am glad she is out of pain and in Heaven, but I really miss her so much. Still in shock I had a stroke last year at the age of 46 and a year later I lose my mom. I thou...

Half Lap Cat!!

It’s fall. The Halloween decorations are showing up in my neighborhood. When I take to the streets for a walk at 6:30am it is still dark outside. I leave on the porch light. As I walk around the neighborhood at first I am setting off motion detectors. By the time I get home (45 mins later) it is light. I am enjoying the change in light! This morning it wa...

Mom Back in Hospital

Posted by johnk6749 in johnk6749's Blog, 14 October 2014 - - - - - - · 51 views

Mom had an appointment with her PCP this afternoon. I have been concerned for some time about her low heart rate. Her previous PCP didn't seem concerned about it. The heart rate always tested low since before her stroke. I am talking about anywhere between 32 to 48. At her appointment today I brought up the heart rate numbers that I documented along with...

It's been an odd few weeks since the last entry. I've been keeping a log and sharing with my sister so she's kept in the loop as well.

10-7-14 - After work: While walking the lake, Dad asked about how hanging works. I asked how that idea came up and commented about Nuremberg. I asked if there was trivia question at day center that started that, he...

Never give up

Posted by Pearls in When your soul dies, 14 October 2014 - - - - - - · 50 views

Many ups and downs but i always go to therapy and i always give it my all and something extra. Sometimes i give up on full recovery but never on improving where i am today. The difference between try and triumph is the umph. If i don't recover it will not be for lack of trying it will be because that's all there is. I'm not happy with that but that's...

As you all know We are blessed with amazing son though some days are tough by his procrastination & being unorganized, but when he takes responsibility & does himself he makes us very proud of him. In lot of things he is like his dad where he does not like to talk about any thing unlike his mom who has to ask 100 questions to get full information...

Marathon Sunday

This was THE day. October 5th. Marathon Sunday. The Twin Cities Marathon. The most beautiful urban marathon. I trained all summer for this day. I knew I would finish the marathon. I wasn’t prepared for how hard the start would be. I stood waiting with thousands of other runners in Corral 1. The announcer asked for a show of hands if this was your first ma...

Trip to WA for Mom's 90th Birthday

Posted by srademacher in spacie1's Blog, 08 October 2014 - - - - - - · 63 views

Trip to WA for Mom's 90th Birthday We survived the trip. Got in to Portland airport around 3 p.m. Waited in long line to pick up rental vehicle - upgraded to minivan in case we were able to get Mom out to lunch or dinner and needed space for 2 wheelchairs. By the time we stopped for dinner on the way to hotel in Lacey, WA and got to hotel it was nearly 4 hours later - 7 p.m. Our so-called...

I am trying new things!

Posted by Grannyjudymac72 in Grannyjudymac72's Blog, 03 October 2014 - - - - - - · 82 views

It's been a while since I have blogged, and not because I haven't wanted to, but mostly because I have been too tired. I think the past three months finally caught up with me this past couple of weeks. I am usually not tired more than maybe a day here or a day there, but this past week I have been exhausted more than usual. I believe it's a combination...

Fatigue- living at a new pace

Posted by Englishrose in Englishrose's Blog, 03 October 2014 - - - - - - · 74 views

Thankfully I stay awake all day-but not much makes me tired these days.

I was at church last week and felt God saying to me that I'd "changed gear"

As a driver those words helped me understand-to navigate through life right now I must move in a different, and slower gear. It takes more "fuel" and I should bear that in mind too, but I need this gear beca...

Nowhere Else to Vent!!!!

I know I haven't been on in a while but life has just been one big rollercoaster for me lately. I don't mean that it has been so active that I haven't had time blog it's just that my emotional state has been such that I am going insane I think! Mike is on a new therapy quest to fix his hand and it seems to be doing some good, but as all things stroke it i...
