I've continued to have healthy, good meals in spite of all the drama. I will ignore the tortilla cheese filled pretzels DD2 and I shared for dinner the first night at the hospital. No real food for the weary that time of night. My exercises h... Read more

No, not those ones. I wish I could paste the AP news picture of Barack Obama, Justin Trudeau and Enrique Pena Nieto walking between the saluting Mounties in the National Gallery of Canada on Wednesday. My 62 year old female self enjoyed the... Read more

Who knew? On top of every other indignity the man could face in his struggles, he was suffering withdrawal from his pain meds! They do not keep the extended release medication, a strong narcotic, he uses daily to keep the pain at bay. He nor... Read more

The last three days have been a week! DH will be in the hospital for another few days for the antibiotics to do their thing. He shipped to a regular floor yesterday where he is only one of many. The area joining what's left of his stomach to... Read more
A little more drama, a delicate issue not too many people talk about and with a happier ending

This afternoon I walked into a conversation between DH and the Infectious Disease doctor. The sheepish and recovering husband told the MD I nailed his diagnosis yesterday. Septicemia (blood infection). Yep. The you-could-be-6-hours-away-fro... Read more

In the blink of an eye it all turns upside down. DH is in the hospital with diagnosis being refined. He felt slightly ill yesterday morning and settled in for a nap. I was doing outside chores, peeked in on him once or twice and I spent an ... Read more

The pneumatic chair system sprung a leak and DH volunteered to climb out of the therapy pool yesterday. This meant 5 ladder steps up, turn and 3 down; without help. Shaky, slow but accomplished to cheers all around! You don't know your potential... Read more
Healthy meals. They ARE doable.

Yes, yes, you've all told me. I've even done it a time or two. Measure and plan. Plan and measure. Don't keep triggers in the house. Use the Tracker. I have been doing all of the above and I think it's working. Not so much on the sca... Read more

Sure, that sounds silly considering the past 6 months, but heck there was nothing else to do! DH has had a few really good days so I said let's go see. We've spent countless days at RV shows in the past getting painful quad exercises stepping ... Read more

While I was dutifully logging in for the 366th day in a row, I was distracted by some large movement outside. These guys came to play. My camera was still set for the night sky so my pictures are not what I'd like. And my movements disturbed t... Read more

I "spun the wheel" June 14 of last year not realizing it would become a lifeline during the year to come. That day I posted a picture blog of our visit to Salt Lake City after spending a week in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks with th... Read more

I stood out on my pool deck for an hour at sunset tonight to catch glimpse of planets and moons. I wish I had better equipment but I'm satisfied. And I got some nice cool evening air. The moon ... Read more
