I sit here reminiscing. Remembering the good, the bad, and the “oh no, not agains” and praise God for getting us to a positive point. We may not get around like we used to, but we get it done.
We both have to take things slower, but we keep going. One day at a time. One step at a time. Barry is having a few issues, but he is tough and his strength pulls him through. He is so courageous and I love that man.
He kicks my butt daily; making sure I do what needs to be done. I get unmotivated and negative. He looks at me and I do whatever he says. My speech is worse and my legs are not what they used to be. I despise my wheelchair, but I need it. I have started to accept that fact. Makes life easier.
We have to plan everything, which drives me insane. Barry the planner, not me! I like the freedom of doing what I want to do. My time is my time. One thing though, I love spending time with my hubster. We get closer eveyday.
Our faith will pull us through. I read the bible daily. Forever learning something new. We get to Church Services when we can or pull them up on the internet. We love to hear our preacher. He has a way with words. Of course, he has great material to work with. My eyes cause a problem or two from time to time, but I read as much as I can when I can see. Feels good to read again.
Just a few words today, but I promise more tomorrow. My puppy has had my attention for sometime. I will introduce you all to “Rider” soon. She is quite a character.
I started this blog in 2012. At that time, we were both miserable. The past three years had torn our lives apart. Little did we know, life was about to hit us in the face.
After Barry’s stroke, we had a small repreive.In that time, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Chemo and radiation began.During this time, we were able to catch up with life.
The month of August were quiet until Barry passed out in the living room. He spent a few days at the local hospital and was transferred to north Atlanta. That glorious trip lead to 5 months in the hospital.
I almost lost my husband a second time. I am exploring the bible and learning more about being a Christain. Barry knows he is saved. He is happy with his Christainity, so I quit worrying about his salvation.I know we will see each other again some day.
I do not remember any of this, I ended up running around our apartment complex at 3am, confused without a clue. To this date, I still do not remember a thing. I cringe when I think of the police being called on me. The hospital had to figure out who I was and locate my sweet hubby. Blood clots and all.
We took a trip to the Cleveland Clinic. I do not understand why we went, but we had hope that we may get some answers. NOT……..
I experienced another episode the first of last year (April). I ended up with a medication combo that did not go well. Woke me up.
While discussing my health, decided to do things to lessen my chances of tumors forming. I had a double mastectomy in October. Here we sit in January 2019. The Seroma I developed has healed. Barry is happy and healthy.
All healed up and home together, I sit here reminiscing about the past 10 years. We are still here! We are alive and love the Good Lord!
Meet Rider……..She is part Jack Russell, part brindle
boxer right down to the boxer wag!
Everyone arrived when was expected. Almost on time, for a change. We asked if we could be of any assistance, did anything that was asked of us and then settled in to play with the kids.
Mom arrived for our family celeration. She went to the kitchen to drop food off and ask our hostess where to put everything she brought. She had deviled eggs and a dish of…… !?! Sorry I cannot remember. Mom needed a dish for the deviled eggs.
Our hostess handed her the egg dish. She looked on the counter for the filling. Our hostess, mom and I started to giggle. Mom forgot the filling for the eggs! We had 24 egg halves and no yokes.
