Wishing on a Star

http://So my wishes have come true, because things are definitely improving slowly but surely on the medical front.  I will say, however, I have newfound respect for caregivers because I have to say, being a caregiver is hard work!  Not only am I managing all the meds (and there are a LOT of them), I’m making sure he’s eating properly, doing his PT without overdoing, staying positive, etc., PLUS I’m doing all the...

Stoned Soul Picnic

http:// Things are definitely settling down; I was able to bring my hubbie home from the hospital on Wednesday.  It’s hard to believe what they can do medically today… 5 days after open heart surgery, and he’s home. Of course, that now makes ME the primary caregiver, which is a bit stressful when you’re dealing with a strong-willed stubborn personality at the best of times, let alone when they’re feeling...

When your world falls apart…

http:// My last post was a week ago, because that was when my world turned upside down.  It’s been one of the roughest weeks of my life… my RL husband failed a stress test, was sent to the ER, and from there it was 3 hospitals in two days, followed by open-heart surgery for a quintuple bypass. I’ve been a bit of a wreck, as I’m sure you can understand, and between the stress, commuting to/from the hospital...

Now it might be stuck in yours as well lol… At least it’s a great song!...

My Special Place

http:// Compared to how a lot of people in this world have it, I know that my life is not particularly hard or difficult. I mean just the fact that I can spend this much time, energy and money living a virtual life on top of living in the real world is pretty solid evidence of that.  But that doesn’t mean that sometimes I just don’t feel like saying “Enough, enough for now”, and finding a little corner...

Island Dreaming

http:// So I’ll admit it… I’m suffering a bit from some good old-fashioned jealousy.  It’s probably not where your mind immediately goes lol… The fact is that my BFF is off on vacay in Hawaii — HAWAII!!!!! — and the green-eyed monster definitely has been paying me a visit.  I love tropical vacations, but I’ve only been to Hawaii once, and that was many many MANY years ago; at the time,...
