If you want to feel old really fast get a new digital camera. At least the one I just got is making me feel that way. It came with not one but TWO user guides and some of the pages have such small print that I have to use a magnifying glass just to read them. Worse than that, the camera has a mode dial with tiny icons on it and without my handy-dandy magnifying glass I'd never know those little suckers are suppose to represent things like: portraits, night shots, indoors, landscapes, movies and a bunch of letters I've yet to decipher. It even has an icon for aquariums. Aquariums! Who needs that? What I want to see is an icon for starting my coffeemaker in the mornings. To read the rest of blog this entry click here.

Things stroke-wise and caregiver-wise have not changed much since my last update. Don is still being Don, the wheelchair bound stroke survivor with the vocabulary of a one year old. And I'm still being Jean, the woman of the house who would rather play on the computer than do housework. We still get out every other day to run errands and go to Don's favorite restaurant. It's a little mama/papa place where the waitresses don't mind how many times he tells them they are 'cute' or how many times he wants a hug. Yes, impulse control is still a challenge in his catalog of stroke deficits. LOL All in all, we're in a good place. Don's stroke is a part of our lives but it's not our lives i.e. we're not living the stroke day in and day out. Those of you who have found acceptance and moved on will understand exactly what I mean.
