This week has been hard for me... harder than I thought that it would be! I found out Saturday night that a close friend of mine had had a stroke, and that he was being kept in a medically induced coma, to keep him 'calm'... It was decided to take him off of life support on Tuesday, and we were given one time, then another time and then a third time that the family was going to remove the life support... I've a feeling that the family was overwhelmed by the outpouring of love for him.... If I had been able to get up to where he was, I would have been there... however it is probably better that I wasn't able to... There was always the hope that he would wake up, slap a nurse on the rear and say... let me get dressed, I have a faire to build... however that was not to be,. On Tuesday, he decided to continue the sleep and passed on shortly after 10 p.m. pac. time. Jerry I will very much miss you, but I know that you are still there, just out of sight, and holding my hand while I am dealing with drilling a hole, to set a screw or the like. I can only hope that an inth of what you tried to teach sunk in! Brightest blessing to you my friend, I look forward to seeing you on the other side!

Today, the circle of life continues... Phil and Cassandra have Baby Boy number 3 (he hasn't been named yet... ) born at approx. 10:30 a.m. 7 lbs 3 ozs 18 inches long... Brightest blessings to you wee boyo, I look forward to holding you!

Yesterday I realized that I was out of blood pressure medication, which has been 'sorta' helping but not really... I went to the clinic that I go to... during the day, it is a regular clinic and in the evenings its is an urgent care clinic... good and bad I am one of the working poor... I work from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. M-F the fact that they will take me in at the urgent care clinic is fantastic! I can take care of minor stuff (like sinus infections, or tonsillitis and scold me for not having a better handle on the blood pressure... I have to say that one of the things that prodded me to take care of this is losing Jerry... Jerry took care of himself (as far as I knew) he was vegetarian, watched his weight, didn't eat saturated fat ect... and yea I want to live a fruitful life I want to make it to "official" senior status, I want to see Megan, Shawna, and Rhiannon happy, and in healthy relationships... and yea someday when they are ready I want to hold my grandbabies... to do that I have to have a Dr. / P.A. who will listen, and work with me on getting the medications that she wants me to take... and hear me when I say... ummmmmmm the reaction to this one was fuzziness - the reaction to that one was increased heart rate ect... I think I have found that... Here is hoping!
