Hi Sweetheart! Can I come out of hiding now? I'll wash and wax your Mustang. The sleep of the just Sweetheart.

First of all, we had a mail run today. So I need to know, who had the truffles sent to me???

(lw the first guy took the boat!)
Poor Chloe, she needs her fur petted off.

Too bad we can't send some of that water Bob's way, sounds like you've got enough to make a difference there.

I'm very concerned about LW's inability to sleep lately. : hugs:: hugs:
LW, we all love you.
Thanks, I love all of you too.

I was having some sharp pains in one area of my chest last night that started getting worse all of a sudden around midnight. It felt like someone was sticking a knife in just to the right of my sternum just above ground zero. I hesitated taking my sleep meds because I thought I was going to end up walking to the hospital. Then it got so bad I didn't even trust myself to walk that short distance, so I called and someone came and picked me and Mandy up. Couldn't forget her, of course.

So I got in there and got a needle stuck in my arm and pretty doped up, when the PA on duty came in and stuck a needleful of something in my IV, then said "Say goodnight, Gracie". I said "Goodnight Gracie", and woke up to my doctor saying I'd missed mass. Of well, I didn't care. They's knocked me out, then let that wear off and switched me to sleep meds during the night, but some mega ones. Turns out the pain in my chest was from more of my terrorists abuse, and he gave me some muscle relaxers that I can take during the day to help the spasms relax. They seem to be helping, but my night ones are working even better.

No, you can't. One wash and wax just won't do it. You're not getting off that easy! I'll think of letting you come out of the cave once the car has an inch thick coat of wax on it!

My friend...I am so sorry you are having so many pain issues. I will let Jesus deliver my hugs to you. The strongest arms possible, giving the gentlest hugs ever. I will spend some extra quality time in prayer for you tonight. I really wish you would give extra consideration into coming home...I really believe it would do you good emotionally.

I just heard on the news that a guy from our church lost his home to one of the grass fires today.

OK, here goes a cuteness overload.
Okie Memorial Area

My chest isn't screaming so bad anymore, the muscle relaxers worked well on the spasms. My physical terrorist was pretty happy today too. He tested my range of motion and while I can't pull my arms back near where I used to be able to, he said the range I have now is considered normal. The only thing still subpar is my air intake capacity. I still can't expand my chest as well as I need to be able to. It's better than it was, though.

He was working on strenght exercises with me today and said he'd set me up for a massage after my session. He thinks that'll do me a lot of good getting the damaged area to loosen up. I was apprehensive because of the location, but went into the massaged therapist's office anyway. I didn't know it, but we have a new massage therapist in town and it's a she. She's there in another job, but her civilian job included massage therapy and she agreed to see me. I laid down and she did her thing right down both sides of the sternum, but she wasn't as rough as I expected. It seemed to help a little bit, so she said she'd try to see me at least once a week.

I have some really mixed feelings about coming home that I may talk more about in the next couple days. I want to talk to my shrink about it some, to see if the things I'm thinking are normal. Wait, is anything going through MY head normal?

I think I got off light in the pain flare-up this time. At least in that it passed fairly quickly, because when it was happening it didn't feel mild. Doc wants to keep me on a mild muscle relaxer during the day, along with the knock me on my butt ones I take at night. I like the idea of those extra-gentle hugs, but then don't I always?

My shrink session went OK today, not as bad as some sessions.I didn't get much sleep at all last night, so he had an easier time pushing me until I snapped and then cried a little. That was what he wanted, and he said he thinks I've gotten most all of the crap out of my head. He said next I'll have to sort it out and find a place to put it in my head where I can accept it all. I think I know what he meant by that, but I'd rather not have it there at all. But I guess forgetting isn't an option. I wouldn't want to forget Greg or his sacrifice anyway.

I don't think anyone was killed in THAT fire, but a volunteer firefighter was killed last week about 60 miles from here.

What a cute pic. Wherever did you get it?

I'm glad to hear you have normal range of motion in your arms. That sounds like great progress.

If you can, see if you can get a scalp massage. You won't care about anything. Glad it was a woman for you.

I know coming home for good will be difficult for you, being the "real" world and all. God has been taking good care of you. He's not going to quit now.


You won't ever forget, but you can learn to deal with it. I think you are making great progress in that regard. Your way up the top of the mountain from where you were when you did my first writing exercise. I'm so proud of you.

LW, doggie is sick. She has been puking and pooping all night.
I boiled some burger and got a pepcid down her. I cancelled tonight.
I won't leave her or kennel her like this.

I'm glad your chest relaxed. How's the sleep? Are you sleeping in your chu,
or going in? I get extra worried when you're up too long. You know it makes
everything worse.

sawgrass, could your dog have drunk some of the standing water outside? Sometimes they can get giardia and display those symptoms. You may need to get her to the vet so she doesn't get dehydrated.

I don't think so. But somehow she did have a tick. I can't believe any have
hatched, since we've only had one warm day. Supposed to snow 4" tonight.

I'm going to see if this burger/rice stays down. If not I'm taking her in.

I caught giardia on the Appalachain Trail a few years ago. You're right, same
symptoms.

BobInTX your granddaughter is darling! I may have to rethink my warning to my engaged daughter about making me a grandmother before I turn fifty.

It really does sound like good news is coming from both sides. I have mixed thoughts about you coming home right now too. You are getting the care you need and finally making good progress. That makes me wish you could stay for a while longer but Lady Glock has a good point to. You need to readjust to life at home. Besides the flowers in your yard are in bloom and look beautiful.

No matter what is decided you keep working and progressing as fast as you have been lately. BobInTX is right in that you are making great progress.

Awww, poor Chloe! I'll still pet her fur off, but first I'll cuddle her until she feels better.

I'm in my CHU tonight, pretty doped up and waiting to zonk. I thought I was going to about an hour ago, but a nightmare was waiting just as I dozed off. So I jerked awake and I'm trying again. Yeah, this sleep problem is what wears on me the most. I get tired and depressed, then Giving Up and his buddies start whispering in my ear and I start listening.

Ummmmmmmm, I found it somewhere on the internet? ......... Like maybe my inbox?

A scalp massage, eh? Sounds interesting. What doc and terrorist are calling normal isn't my normal, but within the range that's considered acceptable. U used to be able to clasp my hands behind my back and then turn my elbows inward until they almost touched. Now I can't even put my arms far enough back to be handcuffed without serious pain. Guess I'd better not take up a life of crime.

I think in so many ways I've forgotten how to live in the real world that I can't even comprehend it all right now. A comment my shrink made a while back was that when I died and had to be revived, then went through the long recovery with the drug reactions, it's like I'm being reborn. Not in the religious sense, but in that I have to rediscover who I am, and the world around me. I know I could really feel that when I had my first big breakthrough a little over a year ago. When I really came to terms with having almost died I was looking at things like the moon as if I'd never seen them before. As someone in here said, in a sense I hadn't. Well this is the only world I've seen, the only world I know. The trips to the States felt like I was going to another world. Even the house I've owned for 20+ years felt completely foreign to me, not my own.

Thank you for that, you have been a part of it. All of you. I take it I'm finished with the writing assignments? My shrink made it sound like he had another bench session planned, but hasn't mentioned it since.

In all honesty Wolfe I find re-discovering who you are appealing.
How many times in your life have you heard 'if I only knew then, what I know now'? Well somewhere inside you do. It's still there, yet you have this beautiful second chance. You owe it to yourself, somehow I believe you know that or I think you would have given up a long time ago. I know we joke about these demons, but these demons are your thoughts and you have complete control over them. Fortunately because of who you are, you are cared for and a few cards have fallen into place. Lone_Wolfe you are getting better and the world is going to be a better place because of it. Everything that is part of this miracle of you still having life is going to go forward.
You're a blessing to all of us who get to know you a little bit. Thank you LW.

My daughter is flexible like that. I never could bend my arms back like that. You might have lost some of that even if you hadn't been shot. I keep saying when you turn 40 stuff starts falling off.

I think I gave you all of the assignments I thought up. You progressed past what I hoped you would accomplished.

I'll let you know if I think of something else.

Maybe we could do something totally unrelated, just for fun?

Oh, ive got one. Tell us about your house. When you bought it, what you did to it, what it looks like, size, etc. Nothing too personal and identifying.

I think I gave you all of the assignments I thought up. You progressed past what I hoped you would accomplished.

I'll let you know if I think of something else.

Maybe we could do something totally unrelated, just for fun?

I think I wouldn't be quite so limber as I once was, but I'm sure I'd move better than I do now. My terrorist is still going to work on range of motion, just not as hard as before. He's doing more occupational therapy type stuff now. Seeing what things I can't do and working with alternative ways to do them. For example I can't push open a heavy door with my arms in front of me. What I have to do is put a shoulder against it carefully so I don't jolt my chest, then lean into it. There's one door I have to open a lot that's like that. Sometimes the people there that know me will dart over and open it for me, that's always appreciated.

I'm surprised to hear I've progressed beyond what you even hoped for. Knowing you I figure you actually hope I'll get completely over this. My shrink says he thinks I have a chance to get farther past a lot of this that many people do because of the sheer amount of time spent working on me.

OK, my house. It's a small 3 bedroom one bath brick house that I bought new in the late 80's. It cost about $40k at the time and the area never bubbled, so it's probably worth 60 now. I did do a lot of work on the yard, as you saw a while back. A lot of flowers and rocks. Pretty distinctive. I did all the work myself, no way I could afford to pay someone to do all that. Unfortunately there's no way I can do that kind of work anymore, so I'm having a contractor put in my back deck. A friend of mine is doing the arranging there. The only thing I've done to the house itself was to build a roof over a front deck I added. I now have more squ

are footage in decks than inside.

I want proof of that.

How many times in your life have you heard 'if I only knew then, what I know now'? Well somewhere inside you do. It's still there, yet you have this beautiful second chance. You owe it to yourself, somehow I believe you know that or I think you would have given up a long time ago. I know we joke about these demons, but these demons are your thoughts and you have complete control over them. Fortunately because of who you are, you are cared for and a few cards have fallen into place. Lone_Wolfe you are getting better and the world is going to be a better place because of it. Everything that is part of this miracle of you still having life is going to go forward.
You're a blessing to all of us who get to know you a little bit. Thank you LW.
Yeah, but what if I donít like who I find out I am? Iíve often wondered that.

If I could go back in time knowing what I know now things would be so different. How far can I go back? 2008? I decline the Afghanistan vacation so I donít get shot. 1994? I donít marry me EX, and I save myself a lot of heartache. 1982? I keep my husband from driving anywhere that night so a drunk driver canít kill him. I can think of several others, those are just a few of the high points. But now I get to take everything Iíve learned so far and try to go forward in life. I have to relearn a lot of things, and learn how to do some things different.

I know those demons in my head are really inside my own head. Itís just easier and a fitting description to call them demons, because is a sense they are. Plus if I refer to them as demons I can picture you folks having a GT bash-fest on them and thatís therapeutic. Itís visualizing the help youíre giving me in banishing those thoughts from my head a little at a time.

For every blessing to you, youíre 100 times the blessing to me. Thank you all, too.
