Things have been a little hectic lately so I’m going to take a little time for a short update. We’ve had a few hiccups moving to the den, but we will get down there. I’ve had a couple of rough days, mostly not ALS related. The thing is stress can aggravate some symptoms and that has…

A Snake

Let me start with a little backstory… About five or six years ago I was zipping downstairs to the laundry room. I stopped frozen on the last step when I saw a long large snake right in front of the garage door. Like most people, I’m terrified of snakes. I didn’t move for a few minutes…

My New Portable Shower

Do I have the best Husband or what? I wrote in my last post about us moving down to the den and the only real problem was me bathing. We decided a portable stair lift or portable shower were our two options. It didn’t take long to figure out the portable shower was the best choice price…

It’s Time To Move

It’s time to move! I wish that meant moving into a new home but It means moving on down to the den. My husband carries me over his shoulder down the 14 steps of our tri-level home everytime we leave and return. I’ve been concerned about his back, especially because it’s hard to keep good form…

Birding and My Daily Pic

I am almost positive I did it! I spotted my first bird by sound and look, then spotting it with my binoculars. Before ALS I was probably amongst the least knowledgeable people regarding anything nature. I knew of some bird names but never took the time to really notice them. I could identify a few trees, Weeping Willow and…

New Name and Logo

  Hello everyone, for private reasons I will be changing my domain name and logo. I have a temporary logo up now.  It’s something I just have to do. I hope the confusion doesn’t cost me any followers. I appreciate each one of you and hope you stick this out with me. Blogging is so strange….

Dentist, Documentary and Movie

It’s now Wednesday and my teeth still haven’t been cleaned. This time the dental office canceled. I’m ready to get this over with. Unless something else comes up my teeth will be all polished up tomorrow. I love that feeling. This is the first time I’ll be rolled up to the dental chair and transfer from a…

A Place For Everything

It’s Monday, a new day, a new week. A few appointments and a couple of rough days kept me from blogging the past several days. I thought I would be going to the dentist last Tuesday but that didn’t work out. They had a cancellation and called. Tony asked me if I was up to it, I said…

Unless You Die, You Will Age

Today I’m just rambling on so I can move on. We all know time flies when you’re having fun at any point in life. As we grow older and wiser we realize the passage of time just sweeps you right along, and how the next Christmas will be here seemingly before you’ve dropped your new year’s resolutions, while…

Vermont Enacted Death With Dignity Law

Some reading this will be very pleased and some horrified. I am very pleased about it. Vermont enacted Death With Dignity law, otherwise named, Physician assisted death. This took a decade of hard work and dedication to make this happen and I thank everyone who helped with this cause. Governor Peter Shumlin signed the bill into law May 20, 2013. The bill grants Doctors civil and criminal immunity…
