What A Mess...

I don't believe in luck, I just don't think that a thing called luck exists. Ok, with that said I've had some pretty rotten 'luck' with my Dell laptop lately. I have a couple of programs on it that are supposed to catch all viruses, well, they must have been asleep on the job because a virus got by them and caused all kinds of problems, lol. After my wife, Myra, spent several hours on the phone with folks trying to help her, she finally was told that to get rid of the virus she had to do more th

Computer stuff.....

I just got a new keyboard for my laptop, and a new fan, with the warranty a technician came to our home and installed them. It took about an hour. She found a screw in my laptop that was just lying loose inside, she couldn't find anywhere that it came from either. Must've been a mystery screw, huh?

Wheelchair news

I have 2 power wheelchairs and one manual push chair, which we use only if my power chairs are 'down.' The chair I use the most is my biggest, it's a Jazzy and it tilts in space so it tilts to put more of my weight on my bck than on my butt.   My other chair is a Hoveround, and we keep it in our van so we use it as a travel chair. Since I am able to support myself with my one functioning leg, the other leg is a counter balance sorta, and can be moved from one seat to another without a whole lo

Oh well...

A while back I had a big problem with my body temp. It would go real high, 103+, and wouldn't come back down, so to the ER I went.

Just another Monday

Last week I was discharged from my Home Health Medical Service after about 3 months of physicaal therapy and speech therpy and a bi-weekly visit from a nurse. I had very little occupational therapy this last time as we all agreed that although it felt great when they stretched and pulled on my left arm, they really weren't doing anything we couldn't do ourself. (daggone left arm :ranting: )   You'd think, at least I do anyway, that insurance would pay for me to get 'maintenance' therapy. But

A little about me.....

I gotta tell ya, I don't believe in luck. I might say to some folks that They're lucky, but for the most part, I just say that to be saying something. Ok, so a lot of people tell me that I'm lucky, but I prefer to say that I'm blessed. I was lock-in for several weeks after my stroke, just being able to move my eyes at first. Then slowly I got movement in my neck back after about 4 weeks and in my second hospital. I started getting some movement in my right hand while I was there, but didn't mov
