Just Checking in

It's been a rather whirlwind winter here, as some of you know my husband is disabled, he suffers from Parkinson's Disease, is a stroke survivor and has several other neurological medical issues. Mid December he came down with a virus and as his Parkinson's advances so do his symptoms and he becomes a handful when he's sick. Then last week he got sick again but this time I couldn't handle him myself and had to take him to the ER, they admitted him and he spent three days in the hospital with a UTI, slight dehydration and some mystery virus that the hospital couldn't name. The day after he came home the mystery virus showed itself as a bad rash on his torso, yes Shingles. Now we're both vaccinated but since he's immuno compromised he's only 50-60% protected.

He's getting better but with each illness he gets harder to handle and I just pray that I can keep him home as long as I can.

Unfortunately when the home fires are blazing out of control it's my reading and blogging that suffers.

So I just wanted to let you all know that I'm still here, stick with me and I'll be back up to speed  as soon as I can.

Take care

and you all stay well


  1. Sorry to hear that. This year is starting off tough for quite a few people.

    Shingles sucks. I had it just before my surgery a couple of years ago, in my nether regions, not fun.

  2. I'm sorry it's been a rough time. I hope things improve with a beautiful spring ahead.

  4. So sorry to hear. Your family is in my prayers.
