I am on Facebook, LinkedIn and of course, SparkPeople. I work on a server all day and I can work from home if need be. I am even attending school completely online. And now I am going to be hosting a virtual baby shower. My DS and DIL ar... Read more

Nephew Update

Merrill continues to make progress at the Children's Institute. His left eye is blurry and the doctor felt it might be part of his balance problem, so he is now sporting an eye patch. He has an appointment with the eye doctor on Tuesday, and d... Read more

Working on the Positives

Saturday, May 26, 2012      14 comments

I bought myself a notebook yesterday and I listed 5 positives for the day. It was a bit of a push, though, to come up with 5. I don't have anything written down today. I haven't left the house all day. Well, I did make progress in my off... Read more

Challenge Review

Wednesday, May 23, 2012      16 comments

I have been participating in a challenge for the past 10 weeks. My weight loss goal was to lose 22.4 pounds. At my weight that was definitely reasonable. However, I am going to be lucky if my weight is the same tomorrow as it was 10 weeks ago... Read more

End of a Long Week

Friday, May 18, 2012      7 comments

Still nothing to report. My niece says that all the therapists get together on Tuesday to compare notes on the individual cases. We hope to have some idea as to what the plan is then. It's been a long week and I am tired and very cranky. ... Read more

No news on Merrill - they are still doing assessments. I got a phone call last night from UPMC (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center). Many years ago I took part in a study on depression. As part of the study, I had a health exam and t... Read more

I have been trying to compose this in my head for several days now and I can't seem to come up with a coherent post. So here is my stream instead...just going to talk until I am done... My DH went to Atlanta a week ago Sunday and stayed un... Read more

Another Update

Tuesday, May 08, 2012      13 comments

It is kind of strange to watch. Merrill is not opening his eyes (except one about half-way every so often without focusing). He is not talking. But he is responding to voice commands. The physical therapy team came in before my visit today a... Read more

Update on Merrill

Monday, May 07, 2012      19 comments

I saw my nephew, Merrill, this afternoon. My niece's sister (who is also my goddaughter) flew in today and I drove my SIL out to the airport to pick her up. Then I drove them to the hospital and decided to visit instead of going back to the of... Read more
