this way or that?

Posted by HostSue in Sue's Sentiments, 02 August 2014 - - - - - - · 1 views

It has been a strange week, cold and windy but no rain, very cold nights for here. I have been busy with meetings, there seem to be so many church meetings as our minister leaves at the end of September and he is trying to tie up loose ends. I think I am one of them as he seems to want me to do this, that and the other at the moment. Even asked me if I...

Summertime. And the weather is confusing. The temps have gone up and down. One day last week I put on long pants and a jacket for my morning walk. This does not usually happen in July, but it was 58 degrees outside. It was in the 90s another day.

The August newsletter was emailed every early this morning. Hope everyone is enjoying it. This month is...


Our Summer is almost over :(

Posted by Tinamomof2 in Tinamomof2's Blog, 28 July 2014 - - - - - - · 97 views

My daughter's start back to school on wednesday, so our Summer is officially over, bummer! I have to say despite my stroke we had a nice 2 months off. One of the reasons God left me behind--because of 2 underage children. We just have fun being together, God blessed me that way. Over the summer we went to public pools 4 or 5 times, a fair/carnival,...


As Time Goes By...

Posted by ajcee in ajcee's Blog, 28 July 2014 - - - - - - · 131 views

illnesses and surgical procedures mount. When my stroke visited me at the beginning of 2002 I word- processed my medical history as well as a list of medications, as I was unable to write and had little reliance on my memory, due not only to stroke, but aging as well. Also, medical visits became very frequent and the lists were time saving and appreciated...

I'm really ready to hit...


Cooking - A Love turned to Hate

Posted by LadyRose in LadyRose's Blog, 25 July 2014 - - - - - - · 252 views

A couple of months back I blogged about being beyond happy to have been able to cook for my family again.
Sadly, that has recently changed for me. I used to love cooking for family and friends and myself, now I HATE it!
I loved it when it was easy. Now, with only one functioning hand and arm, it's very difficult and completely frustrating.
I tried...


Stroke Buddies

Posted by srademacher in spacie1's Blog, 24 July 2014 - - - - - - · 168 views

One of Gary's closest "stroke buddies" passed away on Tuesday of this week. Mike B. was the guy who stroked the same day as Gary in 2004, and they had rooms next to each other at the rehab center in Boulder, CO. That's where we met him and his wife 10 years ago in June.

We went to stroke support groups together, we had breakfasts and...

As most of you know I lost my Mom in February, my Dad in May and now my sister in law and on the 3rd anniversary of my brothers death! She was not the spouse of...

Our midsummer update

Posted by 1967stingray in 1967stingray's Blog, 19 July 2014 - - - - - - · 113 views

Figured it’s time for an update, nothing major but we’re moving along I guess.

We go Monday to see the orthopedist, to find out if Ray’s arm is officially “healed”. Luckily the break was minimally displaced, plus it’s his paralyzed arm, so he hasn’t needed a cast or sling. That does makes things tough for me, I didn’t realize how much I...


Catching up from the beginning.

Posted by StevenM in StevenM's Blog, 18 July 2014 - - - - - - · 97 views

On July 9th, 2014, I did not think when I woke up that I would and up being a stroke caregiver. My day started out like any other day going to work coming home helping my wife with any activities or anything events going on around the house. That day she had been outside in our high heat high humidity day painting the house climbing a ladder to get to the...


is it nature or nurture

Posted by achandra in achandra's Blog, 16 July 2014 - - - - - - · 160 views

I always wonder about how kids turn out to be, is it nature versus nurture. Some days while raising our only child I feel its nature nothing we can do will make him change his ways like procrastination or not being organized lol and arguing that ofcourse I blame hubby's genes.& on some good days when he comes out & does right things which are...

no cancer!

Posted by follys in follys' Blog, 03 July 2014 - - - - - - · 251 views

did the barium swallow today. I thought it a little unlikely that I might have esophageal cancer. but since the outcome is entirely grim I was very concerned. the equipment at out regional hospital was really quite good. but the first thing they did was take a number of chest exrays and then redid some of them. Debbie then told me she was taking them to...

Update (Vanity)

I had my hair cut today. The stylist told me that my hair was thinning on the paralyzed side, but the cut being layered would help.
I've got some meditation music, an acquaintance to get me out of the house, and a different attitude. ...

So if you read my other entry you will know I had my stroke 2 years ago and currently suffer from Central Post Stroke Pain.We have been trying to figure out different Medications that go hand in hand to try and reduce the pain I deal with daily. With that being said. I see my neurologist and a regular basis. He has been amazing with me and I communicate a...

"Phenomenal Women", I wrote it down, and loved to say it remembering all the caregivers on this site and how they are "Phenomental Women"

This morning I went for a swim.,

My attitude has had to shift with regard to exercise as I try,. but am slower than before,. I have started to go to the disabled session and its delightful!

What a friendly bunch of people- no-one is competing to swim faster and no-one complains about you slowing them down- its precious!

I just did half an hour-...
