Beautiful weather in Tucson

I have been in Tucson now for approximately two months now. I love the weather and the citrus and the warm dry winters. I enjoy the surrounding mountains which are so pretty when it rains here and snows up there.:)  I wish my hubby was here, he would love the idea of getting yummy navel oranges directly off a tree.

All is well here, we are looking forward to being able to get into a larger home with a big yard for our doggies. Nothing really new to report. To make sure that any emails reach me, try:  or .  Talk with you later.

Trouble logging into FB

This morning I am having a problem logging into facebook!  Hopefully I will resolve this sometime today, lol. So far, so good. We are ok and the weather has been in the 70s all week which is fine with me.

So now it is 2012!  Yesterday Stew drove us south to Nogales, Az. Just a nice little drive. We stopped and got ice cream shakes at McDonalds; I love their chocolate shakes with whipped cream and a cherry on top!  I don't do very much these days except watch tv, play on my computer, read books on my new kindle fire, (thanks Phyllis & Larney), so I really will be putting on weight, sigh:(

Things are going along well for me. I am getting a little stronger each day and hopefully one of these days I will be able to act normal all the time, lol. My gait is still a little unsteady.:(

I still have Hospice people dropping in on me. A couple of them will be here in the morning. I guess they have a difference of opinion as to how much I need them. These ladies are very nice however, so I guess it can't hurt to get their input as to how I am doing.

Take care all, I will try to do better with my blogging for this year.

Better days!

It will soon be 2 months since Floyd died. I really miss him at times. We spent most of our time together, so we depended on one another a great deal. I miss talking with him and sharing my feelings with him. Anyway, time goes on and all is well. I am feeling better and as a matter of fact, hospice is cutting me loose; they say I am not sick enough to meet their criteria. So that is certainly all right with me, I don't want to be any sicker than need be.

Christmas is Sunday and seems like it just arriving so soon. I'm not ready!  I am wishing all of you a happy new year and a generally great holiday season. Talk with you all next year; take care of one another.  Hugs, moni xo

Living in Arizona

After my last posting, I ended up in a hospital with yet another heart attack. Story of my life!  I was there for a week, then Stewart convinced me to move to Tucson, Az where he lives.  I have been here for a couple of weeks and everything is going along fine. My daughter Phyllis and her husband Larney moved our furniture and belongings from Deming to Tucson. It was a hard, dirty job, but they did it with no complaints at all, so much hard work.

Stewart has been trying to put things away. His house is really cute, but really small. Next Spring he hopes to be able buy us a larger place so we have room for everything.  He is renting this place from a very nice lady. So many good people out there! I need to mention The Animal Guardians of Deming for finding a home for my old dogs and for my kitty. They fed them and cared for them until they found good homes for them and I will be forever grateful.

So now I am on Hospice. They are wonderful people and make life as easy as is possible. I do not have any pain, and that is a blessing. They provide just about everything anyone would need to be comfortable. My heart is just worn out and can't be fixed any more. Stewart is a great cook, and he provides lots of yummy food for me. I doubt anyone ever had it so good. :-)!

After long last, we are both back online and it is wonderful to be able to talk to all my super facebook friends.  Going to take a nap now, talk with you all later.♥♥

Goodbye Floyd

I buried my sweet hubby last Wednesday. He was such a good guy and I am going to miss him something awful. He wasn't sick all that long and I never thought of losing him until it happened. He had a massive heart attack followed immediately by a stroke caused by a huge blood clot on his brain stem. He fell in the hospital and the doctor said that he was probably dead before he it the floor.

Now I am learning how to live without him. Floyd was my caregiver, so I was so very dependent on him. My children are so smart and they know how to take care of me.The only problem is, I feel like a child and they seem like the adults!  Well, can't be helped, I can do some things, but not too much. My daughter Teresa was here all day yesterday, and she made my lunch, changed the linens on my bed, vacuumed the floor and generally did everything including taking care of the dogs and the cat. Stewart is going to take care of me now; he has just moved here from Tucson. My eldest daughter Phyllis is taking care of all kinds of business matters.  I am a lucky lady!

Today is a truly beautiful sunny day, not too hot, just a perfect Fall day. I wish my sweetie was here with me.

Good News

This morning Floyd and I went to see his doctor so that she could explain his CT Scan. Well there was nothing to explain, his brain was clear of any leakage of any kind. She is a little concerned about his confusion, but she wants to wait to see how he does in the next few weeks. He has a mastoid infection and she hopes the antibiotic will clear up his thinking. His confusion doesn't really bother me so long as there is not a physical component. We all get confused as we age.  Floyd's pain is all gone and the one problem which continues to bother him is the dizziness he experiences when he bends over. We figure that is due to the infection. At any rate, we are so happy to have him back with normal brain function, lol. It may not be optimal brain function, but it will do for us! Take care all and I will keep you posted as to how well the antibiotics are working. 

We took the "city bus" to the docs and then to Walmart to pick up his medication and then home. I mean, that was a bumpy ride but Floyd's doc does not want him to drive. Unless it involves his doctor, I will probably be taking the bus alone.Floyd absolutely did not enjoy taking that bus, lol.

Hope everyone has as good of a day as we have had. We are enjoying a lovely, sunny day and it is so good to be out in our warm sunshine.
