Pretty house AKA Therapy house

Bill arrived around 4ish..Bill the builder or rather the destroyer/builder. He measured, questioned, measured, rechecked drawing, Laurie corrected, Bill measured and the first run through was over. He will discuss with colleagues, phone the pretty OT, check the suppliers, fax a diagram, get prices and return tomorrow at 2ish to measure, question, discuss, and explain the costing....and possibly install a little something.....sigh....wish MARTHA STEWART COLLECTION was an option....

My Man, My Warrior

I was so proud of you yesterday. You were bravely anxious entering our home in the wheelchair. You loved everything silently with your eyes and tried all the OT asked of you....yes being your answer every time. We sat together for dinner at our table and you ate and we chatted just like back when......It was hard to see you leave in your chair to return to the hospital and you did it with a smile and love. I love your strength, your persistence and acceptance of nothing else but what you think is best for you. Today you were my Warrior and my MAN. See yourself in every quiet moment walking through our door, hugging me and taking our new puppy for a walk is going to happen.

Wednesday Wildness

Prep is beginning for tomorrows big adventure......the PT/OT home visit at 1 PM. I am a bit apprehensive, Laurie believes it will be fun....... watchful waiting happening on my side of the fence. The being a recipient of health care is NOT....NOT as much fun as being a provider of it. Even I after 25 years in Community Care cannot anticipate outcomes because of the convoluted messages and actions given by the individual services that apparently have never been introduced. It is frustrating and anxiety causing and gives me flashbacks to situations where clients would tell nurses filling in for me...." no, I will wait until M gets I get it....

My apologies

My life is in flux, Dear Reader, and needs my complete focus and a lot of positive energy, which now begs your kind patience for my lax blogging. Through challenge comes strength and wisdom and I thank the Creator for the opportunity to learn a new, greater lesson and for the bountiful blessings I have been given. If you are so inclined close your eyes and focus for a moment on sending healing, loving thoughts to me and my love because our hearts are open wide and ready for all positive energies. Much gratitude and love ....Madonnart.

O Boy!

Seems so far away this man I love......Sickness and health is quite the walk ....but the experience a steep emotional curve has been so heartwarming with the steady appearance of helpful, loving friends and family. Boy do I have to pick up the pace in what I can do and what I offer to do for others.We are so blessed and so is good.

Grateful but ever so sad today

She leaves today. My savior, my touchstone, my confident and sister is returning to her unselfish husband who gave her to me for three weeks. They gave up spending Christmas and New years together in order to help the dude and I during this crises. How to you find the words much less repay such sacrifice and love. It will be painful to see her leave and I AM SCARED WITHOUT HER.....I love her so much.....

Tonight I can't stop thinking I did not appreciate what was possibly the last of many wonderful things....last walk on the beach with my love, last dance, last time making attention Dear Reader.....please. It can all change in a blink.

happy birthday madonnart

 I was about to wish that my every dream come true. That I will find myself surrounded by friends, laughter, and good times. I almost wished that my every cup runneth over financially, romantically, spiritually, and creatively. That good health be my faithful companion, peace my guarded ally, and love my perpetual guide. When suddenly, it dawned on me I was living it with a few bumps along the way so that I can appreciate it more is good.
