challenging times


Sad Teenage Girl

Just a quick note before we head back up to Sedona for more therapy. This has been, without a doubt, the most challenging week I’ve ever had on my body with a close second being a bout of pneumonia I had many years ago.

My husband John is taking such good care of me. I’ve not driven my car in over two weeks due to my injuries so he’s been hauling me to Dr. appts, X rays, the occasional movie. He’s been cooking for me, cleaning my house and doing all kinds of home repairs. But for me, mostly it’s been a lot of sleeping and resting and being in pain over here.

I have a rib fracture that went undiagnosed in the ER that is some kind of pain I tell ya. And then dealing with insurance companies etc and not being able to work. I’m really REALLY understanding the other side of the coin when it comes to the clients I’ve been treating for nearly 30 years.


Things will get better and for now a change of scenery will lift my mood I’m sure. It’s daunting when most of your pleasurable activities are taken off your table. Even reading is hard. I slept almost all day yesterday.

Anyway I’m in the thick of things and it will improve and if I wasn’t sure I married the right man (I never wasn’t sure but you know), I sure am now.

Be back when I can.

  1. Sorry I haven’t been around much recently. FIL died last week and it has been rather chaotic here. Then we got a rather big flood in our tiny town — the bridge that connects in the middle literally cut our town in half. Detours….. frustrating! All is much better today, but a lot of catch-up to do.

    Sure glad John is there with you. He sure came into your life at the best of times!!! Being needed is sometimes a good thing …. and he is showing he can handle the challenges.
