Friday was my first day out of the house in 2 weeks. I drove downtown for a doctor's appointment to have the last of my staples removed. Thankfully the prosthetist was able to meet me at this appointment to fit me with shrinkers and complete an exam required for ordering my first gel liner. I… Continue reading Taken by surprise
So it happened. It's official. I had below knee amputation surgery on my left leg yesterday (Wednesday February 26th, 2020). I am now 24 hours out from surgery and doing pretty darn good. I'm actually doing better than expected. So sit back and hang tight while I lay out what all happened this week. If… Continue reading I am officially an Amputee
Blogs. Blogging. Blogger. Savoring Life's Moments has been my blog for a couple years now. My interest and desire in sharing stories, ideas, thoughts and opinions have not lessened since I began. However, the frequency in which I post has damn near diminished. Honestly, I want to blog and I regularly think about all the… Continue reading Why can’t I blog?

It is generally not with grand gestures, but rather with all the little things he does. It is him slipping out… Continue reading I fall over and over again…
Energy envelops me; Buzzing, pulsating around me, seeping into my ears. Thunder of footsteps reverberates through the house. Voices echoing; My heart... lub-DUB, lub-DUB, lub-DUB . Inhale, exhale, my breath is in my chest and ears. Creaking of furniture, crinkling of wrappers, clinking of glass or ceramics. Can't think - everything echos (echos...echos...echos...). Woosh, swish,… Continue reading Strenuous Moments
I fear spiders. Yes, it is irrational and I recognize that. It is something that has plagued me for as long as I can remember. This has caused me to jump, squeal and cry out on many occasions. Not that I intend on being a free source of entertainment for those around me, it has… Continue reading Arachnophobia
Every single person, regardless of age, gender or ethnicity faces problems. Albeit different ones and to varying degrees. This week while reading The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, I came across this quote: "When we feel that we're choosing our problems, we feel empowered. When we feel that our problems are being forced upon… Continue reading Problems
If I had known I would get sick; that I would lose so much sensation, muscle control and certain abilities, such as: be unable to run, jump or stand on my tippy toes - what would that knowledge have changed?
