Getting ready for the holidays



We got our first post stroke party invitation. Larry's former co-worker invited us to his home this coming Saturday. Larry wants to go as a lot of his former co-workers and retiree friends will be there. I'm happy he wants to go even if it is for a short while. I also asked him to start writing a note to put in a few of our Christmas cards as a lot of people don't even know about Larry's stroke. This season is a whole new experience for us.

Julie it is nice that you have an invitation. It will do Larry so much good to see his former co-workers. This holiday season will be a new experience but it can be just as enjoyable as it was before. Just take it easy and think of resting (for both of you) between events. Have a great holiday.

Yes, pace yourself, take on only those things that are important to you and don't have any expectations of what will happen just go with the flow.


Last year Ray wasn't well and we didn't accept many invit ations, this year we are both well and accepted a few more and so far we are doing fine.


Notes in with the Christmas cards are a good idea. I do one every year because my Mum aged 92 is frail but still alive and people need to know that.

Julie: that must have made Larry's day. I am so happy for him. Go, put on your prettiest and enjoy. He needs the interaction with his co-workers. And yes, he will be disappointed that he got tired, couldn't drink, didn't see everyone, etc. But these are reactions everyone has. Note the high points so you can refresh his memory later and once the first one is under your belts with positive results, many more to come. Have a blast=Debbie
