A little girl needs help. No child should be without health care. She did not get care when needed, but she can now. IF we care. Hugs

Like a teenager asking to borrow the family car.

Yes, Yes, Yes……¬† Oh hello there.¬† Sorry I am excited.¬† ¬† Really it is a great step in my recovery.¬† ¬†Let me start from the beginning¬†rather than at the end, it will be easier¬†to follow that way.¬†¬†

it starts on Wednesday morning.  I am still using a cane when I am tired or walking any distance.  I had a new cane that Ron was going to shorten to work for me.  He took it to our shed where his tools live.  He returned very quickly in rotten humor saying turn off the circuit breaker for the water heater  and he rushed back out the door.   Well after doing my task I let curiosity get the better of me and followed him.  Turns out our water heater tank had developed a rather disturbing rupture.  So long story short, Ron who was to work that night, instead took a PTO day and installed a grand new water heater.    That evening tired and sore he went to bed.

Thursday¬†he couldn’t sleep as he has slept the night before.¬† Ron went through the scripts I got Tuesday.¬† ¬†HE found four scripts with the wrong dates.¬† I called and they said bring them in on Friday and they would fix them.¬† ¬†He went to work and did a 12 hour shift in the Open Heart ICU and that is very hard work for him.¬† He came home really tired out.

I was worried how tired he was.  I told him I would drive over to the hospital to get the scripts fixed.   He wanted me to let him get a couple hours sleep and he would take me.  I convinced him the med changes had already made me feel better.   I felt I could do it.  I could drive there and back with out a problem.   He was so tired he relented and like a super happy teenager I drove my self to get the scripts fixed and then to the pharmacy to get them filled.    I was even feeling up to driving to back to pick them up.   Yes, it is great.  I was for a little while an independent person again.   I admit I am tired and sore now but that is to be expected.   Yes I am excited as this is a step for what I am working hard for in the future, being able to do normal things and even go to school and then work.    Thanks for reading, I need to go look at email and blogs.   Hugs to all.   Scottie

One more step

Filed under: Family, Health, Love — Scottie @ 16:42

Yesterday Ron took a call from the hospital saying they needed me to come in today and get more blood tests, a urine test, and chest X-Rays for my surgery. ¬†Pre-Opt testing. ¬† So Ron came home from working his fourth 12 hour shift in a row, got four hours sleep, and got ready to take me to the hospital. ¬† This time we took the manual wheelchair as my shoulders are really torn and not healed from trying to use the walker the last two times. ¬†I hate to complain about my shoulders though because when I look into the worn tired eyes of my 62 year old lover and realize how hard he is working, how he is taking care of me rather than get much needed sleep, how he has taken on all the things of daily home life on his shoulders. ¬† I remember¬†how he pushed me around the hospital so I wouldn’t hurt my shoulders pushing myself, I did not even ask him too. ¬†When we got home he took¬†a few minutes for himself. ¬† I was happy he did. ¬†I got him a bag of his favorite cheddar white popcorn and he sat and watched TV. ¬†Now he has gotten up and¬†is doing laundry. ¬†¬†And life goes on. ¬†One more step. ¬† Hugs

A Wonderful dazzling shining young lady. Chelsea Manning is a hero.

Filed under: History, Love, News, People I like, Political, Questions, Reason, Things I like — Scottie @ 18:24

I have never made a secret that I admire Chelsea Manning. ¬† What she did took a heck of a lot of courage I doubt many would have had. ¬† She showed the country what illegal acts our country ¬†was doing. ¬†We wouldn’t have known about the shooting of journalist and first medical responders. ¬†She paid a huge horrible price for outing the crimes of the USA government. ¬† Think of it, the ones who committed murder in Iraq never suffered a single thing. ¬†Other illegal¬†acts she exposed and again no one but her paid for it. ¬† The torture she suffered at the hands of her own government¬†is unthinkable. ¬†¬†Yes it was torture. ¬†Legally we can’t do to prisoners what was done to her. ¬†She twice tried to take her life, and I don’t blame her. ¬†I am glad she is safe now, but facing what she faced, I can understand. ¬† Think of the sexual abuse trauma¬†she lives with. ¬† I can’t recount all the things here such as her forced nudity because¬†thinking of¬†it is triggering me. ¬† I think Chelsea should have¬†been pardoned. ¬† I hope in the future someone will do it. ¬†I hope the country will hold her gratefully in their hearts. ¬† For her courage and dedication¬†I thank her, and wish I had a chance to know her. ¬† Best wishes for you Chelsea. ¬† May the rest of your days be filled with joy and happiness. ¬† Hugs¬†
