Hello all

Haven't been on for awhile for here's my latest. I'm engaged and live together now with her 2 kids. Downside I had to put my Budweiser down in May 2014. Hardest thing I ever had to do but was thinking for him and not myself. I will try to get back on more here.

My husband and i had just returned from an extraordinary river cruise in Europe two days before. I was ready to go back to work and get back in the swing of things but i had caught a cold on the way back home which was quickly turning into bronchitis. Coughing, coughing, coughing. My husband was outside doing chores in the yard. Should i call the doctor...

1 million views of my blog - Deans' Stroke Musings

Posted by dreinke in oc1dean's Blog, 17 September 2014 - - - - - - · 52 views

And it only took 4 years 1 month. www.oc1dean.blogspot.com
I like having my own blog where I can say completely outrageous things like the entire stroke medical world is f-bombed up, and then prove it by pointing to research they should be following. This does not meet Dale Carnegies book, 'How to Win Friends and Influence People'. I will need someone el...

almost a year-feeling odd

Posted by Englishrose in Englishrose's Blog, 16 September 2014 - - - - - - · 54 views

Well it's almost a one year anniversary (17 October) since my stroke. I've been thinking about that pretty much for the last few weeks, how a day started fine and ended with me in hospital unable to move my left side.

I've found comments on here very helpful- you see I look and sound pretty much ok now but I cannot write very well, my left hand still nee...

As most of you I loved reading spiritual books and love oprah's super soul sunday series on her OWN network where she interviewed Author of book Alchemist. I loved his thoughts & believed in them since I have seen becoming true in my own life. His one of the suggestion was any time you want something in life then don't give up on it because of fear of...

A few interesting days.

I got through the two big sad times Father's Day and what would have been Ray's 72nd birthday. These anniversaries even though I am nearly two years past his death still revive a lot of sad memories as you who have lost loved ones will realise. It is sad to think of the years going by without Ray in my life, after 44 years of marriage and with so many exp...

I'm feeling less tight lately. The new brace Rose has been using at night seems to help. It holds my wrist in place and stops me from staying in the bent/flexed position I seem to crave. She also has me hold a t...

Home Care Team

Posted by johnk6749 in johnk6749's Blog, 13 September 2014 - - - - - - · 106 views

I feel like the Home Care Team has become the Home Invasion Team. They are passing each other in the doorway coming and going. I have been told by most of them to look into bringing in more people. I told them that there have been more people in this house in the past 2 weeks than in the past 20 years.

Yesterday Mom had what I would call a good session w...

Wet and Wild Yesterday was a record setting day in the Phoenix area. Officially the city of Phoenix got 3.26 inches of rain over a 24 hr. period - last record was set in the late 1930s at around 2.5 or so. The cities of Mesa and Chandler got over 6 inches, and we got nearly 4 inches in Scottsdale. It started coming down hard around 2:30 a.m. and woke me from a sound s...

We did Wyoming!

Posted by 1967stingray in 1967stingray's Blog, 05 September 2014 - - - - - - · 139 views

Our trip to Wyoming had its ups and downs, but overall we had one of the best times of our life. Ray’s incontinence issues didn’t cause much of a problem until the morning we were leaving there. Got Ray up at 4AM to find the sheet, and the mattress cover, wet; it was still dark so I’m not sure about the mattress itself. That felt the tiniest bit damp...

Hi. My name is Karen. This is my first blog. My husband, Keith, had a stroke on September 19, 2013 - almost a year ago. I thought by now I would really have a handle on all of this and I don't! In the beginning I was in utter shock - the stroke, the surgery, icu, rehab, coming home and then out-patient therapy and there was no time to really process i...
