I have been off line because of what has happened to Alice. She had a bad fall and was paralyzed from her hips down. She has ASAP surgery to relieve the pressure on the nerves. As of this AM she can wiggle her toes but is still unable to move her legs. The neurosurgeon says he is unable to tell at this point if she will be able to walk again. Please pray that God will enable her to walk again.

Tomorrow I see the surgeon about my thyroid. I will be glad to get this over. I am so nervous about this appointment. I am just ready to get whatever needs to be done, done. It's crazy how nervous I am about what he will tell me. I guess I just need to do some deep breathing.
Sometimes I feel I have enough doctors to start a clinic. I guess I am thankful they are there when I need them. Medical expenses are such a big part of my monthly income. I worry about the continuing rise of medical cost.

My Brother and IThere are times that something changes everything in your life from that point on. We all have stresses either good or bad on a daily bases. These events can happen at anytime in one's life. There are things that we stress over that have little long term effect on us. Usually the number of significant events are not that many in a life time. What do you think your top 7 events are? Mine are listed below.
- Child abuse
- Birth of my children
- Health issues (mental and physical)
- Death of my Son
The most life changing event in my life was when I met Jesus.

Absolutely nothing is on TV at 3 AM. These late night of not being able to sleep are rough but I don't know what to do about it. I know I'm going to be exhausted tomorrow. UGH!

Today was a pretty nice day. Alice and I spent the entire day together. First we went shopping then had lunch. After lunch we went shopping again. I found some excellent deals which always make shopping more fun. When we got home we watched a DVD together. It was the perfect end to the day.
It finally rained which I am hoping will cool us off. Today it was 101 again. They are saying we might get a cool front coming through with the rain which should drop the temperatures to the mid 80's. It has been such a hot summer I am ready for fall.
I have been a bit manic for the past three days. I am sleeping very little and am so hyper. I am also wanting to spend money. NOT GOOD! Right now my body is so screwed up I don't know which end is up. I have really been in a lot of pain today.

Now I am so filled with emotions and pain I just want to talk with somebody. It is just too late to bother anyone. Everyone is asleep or with their own family. Writing seems to help some. You get the emotions out but you don't have that feed back. I really have missed this in my life. The funny thing is I writing now without letting out the emotional details of the pain I am feeling. How can sharing be so hard for me when I find it so easy to listen with empathy?
We were made to share our emotions and feelings with others. We all have happy times, sad times, painful times, that need to be shared. Let's remember with all the technology to use everything that is available to really communicate to those you love and care about.

I just feel so blessed with all my on line friends. I have met so many beautiful people. Sharing is so healing. Because of my past I had a real fear of trusting people but as I have gotten older I have come to realize how much we need each other.

Boy are we ever in a heat wave. Not only is it hot but we are in drought. Everything is dying: no grass and the crops are just dying. Today it's been up to 113 degrees! We are in an excessive heat warning for the past several days. I believe we have been over 100 degrees for 23 days so far this summer. I am just so thankful for A/C. It's hotter here than in death valley.
