April 14 th was a long time ago

Well, i have missed my computer and pretty well everything else too. Since i realize all seven of my followers pretty well know well i have been, there really in no big deal about going into details, but as the the weeks go by and winter comes I will go into details...just so I Have a written diary of the past year.

I can't thank my family for their love,prayers, cares, back rubs and all the stuff that they are so good at. They each have special things that are important to me.

They are many things for me to be thankful for--I am still alive and cooking [not really cooking in the kitchen, cooking in the brain}---i was able to come home on a vent so I could live at night---Years ago I would have ended up in the hosp, nursing home or dead====finally after years of always thinking my house had to be clean 24/7 I decided that who cares????----

I realize now that I might have little changes for the better and then maybe 3 or 4 days of feeling crappy. i might have 2 hours of feeling good of then 6 of feeling bad. I just have to go with the tide and try to stay with it......

Graham is just a delight. He could of not came to be at a better time. He makes me smile just thinking of him....

well that is it for this writing, and did i ever tell you all how lucky I am to have 5 great kids and so many brothers and sisters....I guess i really should count my blessings.

Guest Blog by Kinsey

Kelsey, Kassie, and I are sitting here talking to my mom and I thought 'Hey I am the only one who hasn't written a guest post.'

So here it is :)

Firstly, Kelsey is explaining her life plan, which I have already listened to because we drove back from Iowa City together.

Secondly, Kassie is a very cute pregnant lady.

Lastly, and most importantly, mom knows some sign language... which is pretty much the best thing ever. She knows it because of working at Woodward for all of those years.

She knows 5 signs: Food, I love you, Bathroom, Medicine and Thank you.

When she first was put onto the ventilator, she signed 'bathroom' to Bridget, and Bridget thought she meant I love you :)

She always tells her nurses Thank you after they help her :)

Mom and her beautiful daughters

Guest post #2

Hey everyone!

This is her daughter Kaci again :)

They tried to reduce my mom's meds slightly yesterday afternoon and they led to her having a really bad night where they had to increase her meds to higher than the original amount. This morning was still hard for her. She had a great afternoon because that is typically her best time of the day when she has the most energy. It looks like now that she will be here through the weekend due to her still needing IV steriods. The doctor's want to keep her here as long as possible to make sure that she has fully recovered because they know the better she feels when she goes home the longer it will be before she has to come back. They are also trying to give her a new drug that can possibly have some bad side effects or will be extremely helpful, so we will see how that goes.

Thanks for keeping my mom in your prayers!!!! Link

A guest post from her most beautiful daughter :)

This is a guest post from Deb's daughter, Kaci.

On Tuesday night, I called the ambulance to take my mom the hospital because she was having trouble breathing. She is in stable condition but still having a hard time breathing at times. It looks like she will be here at least another day. The doctor's haven't stopped in today yet to give us an update.

Overall she is still in great spirits and as hilarious as ever. :) She just wanted me to tell all of her blog friends (especially Mike) what was going on so they wouldn't worry during her absence.

Have a great day!

30 reasons that I love about my first husband

My oldest girl wrote a list of 30 reasons why she loves her husband. They have been married for 6 years. I can't not believe this part, it only took her 10 to 15 minutes to do it. That is amazing!!! Then of course she is pregnant {7 months} so the hormones are going crazy. I would also say they are still in the honeymoon part of their marriage.

I been married almost 33 years and it would take me a good 15 minutes to come up with a handful of reasons why I love my husband. I most likely could get a list of 30 if I had at least a month to do it in. So that is my plan, when I am done I will share it with you all. unlike my oldest who thought I should not share her list with my blog readers. [which are 75% family, 20% old friends and 5% my new blog friend mike ] She thinks it is a private list.

So I think it would be a good idea if before anyone get serious about anyone they should make a list of 30 reasons why I love this person. Both people should do it. We should make it a law in our house from now own.

It I had to make a list of 30 things that makes me upset about my husband, it would be a lot easlier list to make, starting with the OMG leaking kitchen sink one, that I have been complaining about for 26 years. After I get done with the one about what I loved about him, I will do the other one [things that upset me]to make things equal out.

Random thought: All of this 30 stuff reminds of a song from my day, "30 ways to leave your lover", I can't get the song out of my head. So I guess I will be singing it all night.

finally someone I don't know makes a comment

Finally after months of writing postings, someone, I don't know makes a comment on my last posting. That made my day.

That just makes me want to jump right out there and write another post. But due to Net zero error 17, it just takes to long. Right now I am at the Perry library and I have 8 minutes to get this done before I have to get off their computers.

The good news is my son in law is coming to visit me tomorrow from fl. and he is going to check my computer.

So thats the key to my heart, if you read my blog, comment on it. It makes me smile.
