Celebrate: I Hope I Can Do This!


I'm so sorry that I've been missing from the Celebrate hop for the past few months. In case anyone missed my last post, my absence is the result of a number of health issues including having a stroke and my subsequent "dementia."  Dementia limits my ability to remember things. Every day, I wake up with little to no memory of the past day and even months before! So my short term memory is pretty pitiful, and my long term memory (past years) is kinda spotty, too. My husband -- Mr. Awesome! -- is very supportive and constantly helping me, so I've been improving. Yay! I think I'm ready to get back on the horse -- the Blog Hop Horse -- and start posting just as if I'm a regular person. Woohoo!

This week, I'm Celebrating my ability to write a post and schedule it for the right day (I did it -- See?!! ) And I intend to visit all you wonderful hoppers!

(I'm posting this at night, so I'm crossing my fingers that I remember I did it when I wake up tomorrow! LOL)

Celebrate: Trials and Tribulations


So you're probably wondering where I disappeared to for the last 4 months. Well, I had a very bad flu and then ended up in the hospital where they found I had arteriosclerosis ... and then I had a brain bleed and got dementia. I'm still dealing with memory loss and overall confusion. Yes, it's been a real fun time... 

Luckily, I have a very supportive husband and with his constant help I've finally recovered health-wise, although my memory is still a bit iffy... It seems my short term memory is the most iffy, but my long term memory is pretty good. In other words, I can remember my childhood, but the past few years are a bit foggy. However, with his help I'm muddling through and getting better every day. 

Please send me your good wishes and I'll cross my fingers that my memory gets stronger 'cause it's weird to have a screwed-up short term memory and have no idea what happened yesterday ... or the last few months...

Celebrate: Au Revoir

"Au revoir" means until I see you again. In this case it's more of an until I'm well enough to stay upright in a chair long enough to write blog posts again.

According to the doctors and lab results, I'm "fine." Tell that to my very nauseous tummy and unhappy digestive system that have made me lose 8 kilograms (17 pounds) in the last 2 weeks. Not kidding. I spend most of my time in bed or in the bathroom.

It's very hard to sit at my laptop, so I'm off everything -- Facebook, my CPs' forum, Twitter (if you see a tweet, it's a robot, not the real me), gmail, and now Blogger. I hope you can forgive me for not commenting on your posts and, for a while at least, for not posting. Until someone figures out what's wrong with me and fixes it, I just don't have the strength to be on the net.
