Goods days and not so good days

Upper Deerfield Twp, NJ

Today marks one month since my stroke.    I woke this morning with my usual light headedness and some nauseous.    It is taking me longer to type since then it used to - have to keep backspacing and correcting.   Frustrating.

Walking takes my full concentration.  Slow.  I get emotional easily, tears flow.   I've been shopping a few times - hate using a walker but I need it for stability.  Then I can only do it for so long, have to sit down and rest.

On the upside.    Saw my neurologist - said I'll make full recovery.   Had carotid artery ultrasound - no problems as well as no issues with blood work.

I see cardiologist this week.    Continuing rehab.

Still at Camp Driveway as daughters in NJ.   Changes going on here.   She has accepted a new  job and will be relocating to the Harrisburg area of PA.   An opportunity she can't refuse.   So house goes on sale.   This is the house Leonard and I bought in 1992 and she bought in 2010.   Lots of memories here. She starts the new job on the 22nd.  Lots to do to prepare for the sale.  We will remain here for a while until after Thanksgiving or until it sells.  

Visited other daughter and family yesterday in MD.   Love seeing our precious Charlotte and Abby.

Leonard sees a doctor next week about having the blood clot in his leg removed.   Also will see Dr. about back surgery.   Then it will time for me to take care of him!

So,  we trust these health issues will resolve and we can once more hit the road.  In meantime, I will enjoy reading of other folks travels.


  1. Glad that the outlook is for your full recovery!

  2. So glad to hear from you, Phyllis. Only prayers and time will get you through this. Glad to read that heart and blood work are good.

    Good luck to Len and his appointments. Hope all go well.

    Pass along our congratulations to your daughter. How proud y'all must be.

  3. Enjoyed you Alaska trip. Get well. Richard

  4. One day at a time - that is all any of us can do. Prayers continue for your full recovery.

  5. God has you where you need to be, for both of you. I continue to be here in CA, mom is going to sell the house as well, so that will take a bit of time. In the meantime, George heads to Amazon.

  6. Really good news about your recovery prognosis!!! We have certainly had you in our prayers. Just be patient with yourself. So glad you are posting and keeping us updated. Congratulations to your daughter and her new job!!
    Tell Len to take good care of himself....blood clots can be serious. Keeping you both in our prayers.

  7. Good to see your post. One step at a time. You have a great report for full recovery. Not ever having more than knee replacement I can't imagine how this effects you but you can see we are all pulling for you and sending healing prayers your way. Yep you will have to take care of Len when your stronger. A Goal.
    Happy for you daughter Congrats to her.
