A Change in Life

by Lisa Britton July. 03, 2019 219 views

On March 14th I took my husband to the ER because he wasn't feeling good, and had been feeling sick for several weeks.

What a shocking discovery we were in for. He had suffered several strokes and had an mycotic aneurism (infected blood vessels in his brain). Life was turned upside down.

4 weeks in Eisenhower Hospital and another 4 weeks in a rehab hospital with 6 weeks of intense IV antibiotics.

It has been a long 3 1/2 months with little time for anything besides hospitals, recovery and work. We have a new appreciation for life and happiness.

I have missed my photoblog, but have not had the time to do it properly. I am not going to try and play catch up, but just start up from here and move forward.

We are on vacation this week and this gives me the perfect opportunity to relax and get back into my favorite hobby.

Soooooooooooooooo glad you are back! Been thinking of you a lot and was actually wondering if something had happened to your mom, knowing how involved you were with this place couldn't see you just disappear. So sorry to hear about your hubby but 100% happy that all has turned out fine. Great to have you back! Looking forward to some nail polish shots and some vacay shots. WELCOME BACK!! smile

Thanks Camellia, I have thought about you and photoblog so often, just have not had the time to post. I could almost go back and make up the majority of the photos. I have tried on several occasions to take the daily's just haven't had the time and energy to edit and then post every day, sooooo photoblog was one of those things that had to go on the back burner. 
Mom is actually doing well.
Nails and vacation will follow in the days to come.
