It’s been a rough and tumble week, but I’m still celebrating it! My pain level has been high most of the week. My low level patch that my rehab doctor has me on in place of the Fentanyl I took myself off of had to be ordered, so I’ve been taking my muscle relaxers and over the counter pain meds. I’ve been working hard at PT and I know that’s been adding to my pain and soreness.

My daughter Mandy came to spend the weekend with me and THAT was worth everything to me. 😀 She’s a newly licensed driver and I got to see her drive me around to do my errands for the first time EVER! I am so proud of her

We exchanged our Christmas presents and I got a Chromecast, so I can stream Netflix, Hulu, my Prime videos, etc. all on my TV! I am stoked! Mandy loved her gifts.

I made her dinner Saturday night while she babysat me and helped me with the things I couldn’t do by myself (like drain the ground meat without dropping everything all over).  😀

I’m celebrating the fact that I’ve been on course so far with everything I said I was going to accomplish for this year, aside from one or two things that were beyond my control, and those don’t count. 

I’m celebrating the fact that I’m still here, blessed with some very special people in my life.

What have you celebrated this week?




About My Miracle Life

I'm a writer, blogger, avid reader, book reviewer, sub-arachnoid hemorrhage and stroke survivor, moving forward in my recovery and trying to advocate for stroke and brain hemorrhage awareness and prevention. I'm also slowly working towards independence, driving, my first novel, a memoir and a series of short stories. I've been lucky to have a very small network of close friends to guide me; I've been even luckier to have found an online 'family' of sorts to help me through the rough times.

  1. I’ve had a toothache this week. It’s a minor annoyance, but still makes me b*tchy…how do you deal with the chronic pain and stay so positive?

    Glad you got to spend time with Mandy. There really isn’t anything better than the time spent with our babies!

    • Oh, what a wonderful daughter you have! Family time is always great,and I am glad that she sounds to responsible. Good for you! Have a wonderful week!


    • I know that’s right. I took advantage of every second because I don’t see her very often.

      Believe me when I tell you that I have days when I’m far from positive, but I try working through them. It’s all I can do to get where I want to be. It helps that I have great friends like you in my corner. You should only know the impact you have on my morale. Love you!!

    It’s so empowering to accomplish the things we set out to do. I’am glad you try staying upbeat. It’s really good for you when you can. (I speak from experience) It works wonders!

    Such a joy to have a daughter! You are blessed. And ‘Chromecast’ – oh yes!!


    • Thanks so much, dcrelief. I really do try to keep myself positive. Lucky for me I have the cutest little poochie to keep a smile on my face. 🙂 I had no idea about Chromecast until Mandy bought it for me. Loving it!! 🙂 No more having to watch Netflix on the ‘puter. Have an amazing night. Hugs. Eva

    Hope the pain has finally eased with PT. No fun. Hopefully a good thing when all done. Great you are staying so positive and your family has been wonderful 🙂 Have a nice weekend!


    • Thanks for the encouraging comments Sharon. I’m sure once the routine is more regular, the pain will subside substantially (crossing my fingers). 🙂 It also helps to have an amazing blogging community that surrounds me with all kinds of virtual love and affection!! Have a great night. Eva

    Time spent with a wonderful daughter is worth celebrating! I hope your pain level improves!


    • Thanks LG, I appreciate the visit and thoughtful comment. I enjoyed every minute with her. 🙂 I’m hoping the pain level improves dramatically once I get used to regular PT. Have a great night! Eva
