Yesterday my husband and I got up early (for us) and hit the road for Oacoma, South Dakota to attend the wedding of my oldest cousin's first granddaughter, who's mother was my Godchild. This is the first trip we've taken since my husband had be... Read more
Can it be Fall already?

I can't believe the time has passed so quickly. My husband's surgery was just over 2 months ago and it's been about that long since I've written a blog. Whatever have I been doing these past weeks and where does the time go? Does anyone else... Read more

When things start to happen, they happen! Tom called me this morning just after 7 am - Daisy and I were heading out for our walk. The doctor had already been there and as soon as he had his breakfast the nurse was going to start the preparatio... Read more
And now it's Tuesday

Surgery went well although it took longer than she anticipated because things were a little worse than expected. I suppose that happens a lot. They can't really know what's inside until they open things up and look. The waiting was endless bu... Read more
Today is the Day

My DH is preparing for his surgery later today. We have about an hour before we need to leave home. I have to admit, I'm a bit anxious about all this. But yesterday we learned that my step-son will be at the hospital with me and he is bringin... Read more
We finally have a plan

Life is getting better every day and I am so very pleased to be able to say that. The very charming Speech Therapist came 3 times - each time encouraging my husband to try and eat more things. Today we are having hamburgers with french fries -... Read more

You have all been so wonderful and so very supportive. I can't thank you all enough. My dear Tom is starting to fuss about some of the little things around here - like his Mac needed to be updated and his printer needing to be reset. I have n... Read more

Tomorrow it is suppose to rain so I decided it was time for me to get outside and mow my lawn. I don't think I have EVER had to mow this yard and I've lived her for 36 years. First it was my ex-husband, then as the girls got older they took ov... Read more
Progress takes time

Many of you know that my DH is experiencing some health issues - actually, several different health issues have come along in a very short time frame. None of them, individually, are life threatening - just difficult to deal with. All these th... Read more
I'm not meant to be a caregiver!
Monday, May 06, 2019      26 comments

When I was a girl I thought I wanted to grow up to be a Nurse - didn't everyone? I had some minor health issues and always loved the nurses who cared for me. When I went to collage I decided I should be a Social Worker - until I almost failed ... Read more
And then we had lights
Wednesday, March 27, 2019      16 comments

Well, we did always have lights but only the bare minimum. But now I can turn on everything - all at once if I so desired! It's a rather freeing feeling to no longer have to restrict electricity usage. But I learned that I absolutely CAN ... Read more

The past two weeks have been interesting here in Minnesota (and probably a lot of other places too). I thought I'd share some of my recent outside photos. The first two are of the path's I had shoveled throughout our back yard so Daisy cou... Read more

Finally..... A Walk
Friday, March 08, 2019      21 comments

Daisy and I just got back from our first walk since about mid-January. First we had the rain, that turned to ice; then the polar vortex; then the snowiest February EVER and the 4th snowiest month since they started keeping records in 1872; and ... Read more
