Strange times, indeed

It is over

I almost said 'finally over' but I know many people go through looooooong final chapters with their dying loved ones and my FIL really only spent a month in 'rehab' and five days in the hospital before peacefully breathing his last breath. He ... Read more

Too much going on!

I think my update recently was something along the line of 'why am I, the regular exerciser who eats so healthy, the only one NOT sick around here?' That was even before my dear man's pneumonia diagnosis. Read more

He is still hanging in there...still in rehab, making teeny tiny progress so they are keeping him there for now (day 17 today). We have an assisted living place on stand-by, assuming they will accept him and we can get him to go there. Sadly... Read more

SPAM comics

Since getting a new laptop a few weeks ago some of my sparkpeople notices go to my spam folder so I now check it every day, something I rarely did before. Almost every single day I receive one or more of those (I always call them Nigerian but ... Read more

Jack is doing fairly well....he is eating a bit but seems like he has little appetite, not that he is intentionally not eating. He eats a bit of breakfast, a few bites of lunch and little dinner. He is cooperating with PT and seems to be enjoyi... Read more

The warm water pool reopened today.... hooooray! I swam for an hour and then cleaned house for another hour so I wouldn't have to go back out in the cold (temps dropped into the 20's here as the day went on) Read more

Pity party, part II, with some clarification
