Feelings change day by day!

Two months ago it started! This incredible journey that no one fully understands until the path crosses them. It was 6 am June 20th, I was asleep and Ray called out for me. I went into the living room and he asked me help him to the couch that he could not do it himself. He was slightly slumped in our overstuffed chair. I said something is wrong, he sai...

Hello all again,

It's nearly 3:04pm, I took my mom to see my grandma's doctor, and get a few more diapers, bed sheets from the pharmacy near the hospital. The guy at the pharmacy has told us some cruel stories about not caring children for their elders, and some even saying this irritating phrases "my mom's not going to get better anyway, I don't want t...

In a Blaze of Glory

Posted by srademacher in spacie1's Blog, 19 August 2014 - - - - - - · 37 views

In a Blaze of Glory We had a fine start to our week yesterday. I was hoping to get my 4 hours out to enjoy myself and play a little at the casino, but probably should have opted for a trip to Walmart instead, as I lost a few too many $$$. I had been playing a buffalo stampede slot machine with two large jackpots (random pays), and finally decided to give up on the machin...

Home Evaluation/Dry Run

I am doing family training with Mom. We are walking with the walker, doing transfers from the wheelchair to walker and vice versa. We practiced getting into and out of the shower using an extended bench, and going to the toilet. I have been going to the toilet with Mom for about 3 weeks and she is getting much better at it.

The rehab center wants to do a...

On Saturday, the 16th I had a really enjoyable day outside attending a friend's birthday party but the good day was, unfortunately, followed by a bad day yesterday (Sunday, August 17th)... I spent 4 hours at the hospital ER. I had got out of bed in the AM , hubby did not and my son was on another level of the house. After using the bathroom, I went to th...

Loss of cognition has some plus points...

Posted by ajcee in ajcee's Blog, 17 August 2014 - - - - - - · 51 views

Most individuals suffer memory loss as the years add up. Certainly, with a stroke, this loss often increases concerns of dementia or Alzheimer's Disease. At age 87, I know too well of what I speak, and find it more complex, as my spouse is near my age with a number of serious illnesses, including memory loss. We are learning to accept these shortcomings i...

Happy 1st year Post Stroke Anniversary to me!!

Posted by Tinamomof2 in Tinamomof2's Blog, 16 August 2014 - - - - - - · 36 views

Today marks my 1 year post stroke anniversary! Yeah! I made it through the year with no more strokes, mini strokes or nothing!!

I am happy because I read some where, during the 1st year after stroke the chances of having another one is 35%--I have been worried about that.

This anniversary means so many things, good and bad. I wouldn't wish a stroke on m...

I went to my friend's son's funeral today, he was only 47 and died of cancer, leaving a wife and three small children,so sad. I had known him since he was two, seen him grow up, his mother and I became firm friends. He and his brother and...

mental illness is scary things

Posted by achandra in achandra's Blog, 13 August 2014 - - - - - - · 60 views

I am so saddened by robin williams death. after dealing with my own depression I thought I know what will help in treating depression. His death showed me every mental illness is different & so will be the treatment plan. No family, friends, support group or money can help every one. I guess chemical imbalance that causes depression is different than...

Just have time for a quick update. Summer is flying by as always up here. June was a blur as several cousins, etc came to FISH. The pressure was on to guide them to good fishing. I worried about all the usual things like will the weather allow it, will the bugs eat them alive, etc, etc. In the end it all went well, all caught fish including the 9 yr old b...

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 parti...

Our midsummer update

Posted by 1967stingray in 1967stingray's Blog, 19 July 2014 - - - - - - · 137 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 used his arms a...

Catching up from the beginning.

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...

no cancer!

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...

Update (Vanity)

Posted by susanmarshall in susancm's Blog, 05 June 2014 - - - - - - · 155 views

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. This time of life is looking good.
