Reflecting, After all, it’s Been Two Years


     It’s been 2 years since I started blogging,  I’ve re-read it from the beginning and just reflecting on everything.

     I’ve covered a lot of things The Coma,  I thinks I’m going to do all of these in capital letters, they had that much of an impact with me. Now I have to start over and in no particular order.

The Coma

The Pancreatic Tumor

The Sepsis

Chronic Pancreatitis

DKA

Countless other procedures

Tranfers Via The ALS Ambulance

     Well, I think I hit all the hight points  anyway.  Now I want to set some goals this new year.  I’m thinking I want to try the cymbalta.  Depression kind of creeps up on me slowly without me being aware of it until I’m mired in it.

     Daily exercise, and for sure much better control of my diabetes, I feel like I’m always putting out fires instead of preventing them in the first place.  To that end I’m going to appeal my insurance companies to approve the insulin pump for me.

     I’ve also done much that I’m proud of,  I went to Texas for a couple of weeks and made it to New York with the family for a long weekend.  Of course it was when they were breaking records for temp and humidity.  I went skydiving, I tried sushi.  Note to self:  Do not try the skydiving and the sushi in the same day.      Rudy and I noticed and commented on how peaceful and loving our house had become.  We were in a very good place, the equilibrium was palpable.  That being said, there were some challenges.

    It was a tough year, emotionally, and mentally.  My sister and her crazy girlfriend moved in and it was very difficult not getting entangled in their drama, then just my sister was here.  That was hard.

     My sister moved back to Kentucky about a month ago.  Rudy and I are getting our mojo back.  There’s a lot going on right now,  I’m getting my sewing room set up, I’m on the hunt for a dress form.  I want to try reworking vintage clothing, it appeals to the hippy in me.

     I also want to give a big “Thank You” to all of my readers, I have learned from you as well.  Keep reading and commenting.
