As Time Goes By...

Posted by ajcee in ajcee's Blog, 28 July 2014 - - - - - - · 24 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...

Cooking - A Love turned to Hate

Posted by LadyRose in LadyRose's Blog, 25 July 2014 - - - - - - · 197 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...

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...

Our midsummer update

Posted by 1967stingray in 1967stingray's Blog, 19 July 2014 - - - - - - · 108 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...

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...

Cleopatra, RIP Cleopatra the Cat died Wednesday morning, July 2, 2014.

I adopted her as a rescued cat in January of 2002. She was found with three kittens in a Chicago suburb Dec 26, 2001. When I adopted her they estimated she was 1 - 2 years old. So, she was geriatric.

About three weeks ago I became concerned because she was spending time in her litter box. Just lying...

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. ...
