Wellbeing

Uterine Ablation Surgery I dropped a few tears because being wheeled back reminded me very much of going through the tough thrombectomy in 2018. The doctor asked why I was crying. He then said, you have PTSD from what you went through, don’t you? I shook my head yes. I’m a very hard stick and […]

Stars at Home

I purchased a star projector from Amazon that puts moving stars on my ceiling. Absolutely mesmerizing. I’m so loving this. Besides stars, something wonderful happened. I was laying in bed kind of lonely when the doorbell rang. I answered thinking it was Amazon. Instead of it being Amazon I was delivered flowers from friends. I […]

Precious Moments

Yesterday my CNA and I made cookies and danced. While in the kitchen stirring she did the foot dance moves while I did the top half dance moves from my wheelchair. Doing that for me was deeply touching. A CNA does more than cook and clean. She is often emotional support as well. Like health […]

It was a good day despite thunderstorms

There was lightening and thunder. The cat hid under the bed just as the lights went out. There was nothing more my nurse’s aide and I could do except sip apple Martinis by candle light. It’s stormed all day long but once the lights came back on I had pork chops, baked potato and green […]

Gratitude: They Reached Out

I couldn’t sleep last night and was on my phone playing a game for the millionth time when I got a curious email. I investigated and was left with mounting questions. What is this? Who is this, and what does all this mean? I quickly used the email address to inquire. I mean to tell […]

Shoes

I feel as if I’ve regained what was lost. I finally have shoes I can wear other than the Converse. I obsessed over this for two years until finally I got my wish. I say obsessed but it was begging in prayer that I please find a pair of shoes to wear with my skirts […]

A box full of life

I know I’ll have to fight these people again but for now I’ve got a month’s worth of shots in my hands. What a relief! Five days waiting for these felt like forever. Thank you to everyone who called, text, emailed and left comments and likes of support. It’s much appreciated. ❤️ Faith

My Funeral: One Last Cup

How do you want your funeral? That’s the question we’ve been discussing. I swear I don’t have morbid friends or plans to exit, but we have talked about these things especially since we’ve lost good friends recently. I found the perfect urn for myself. Anyone who knows me knows this is in fact the urn […]

It’s here and I love it

I couldn’t be happier. I love the table. I got it from Amazon.com. I can roll my wheelchair right up to it and roll around the art studio getting supplies and fresh water and wine. I painted for two hours which is about what I’ve been doing for a little bit. It feels great. Pretend […]
