    As Deb and I spend our days together, traveling to therapy and other adventures we always enjoy listening to the 70's station and sing along to most of the songs. They say music is good therapy in itself and I get to enjoy her laughter as we reminisce about songs of our childhood, and sometimes it's just a welcome distraction from the repeated questions that still come. 
    This journey with Deb is...

    The most complex yet the most amazing organ in the human body!
    The average brain weighing about three-pounds is the home of intelligence, interpreter of the senses, initiator of body movement and controller of our behavior. The brain is the source of all the qualities that define our humanity.
    The chief function of the body is to carry the brain around... Thomas Edison

    A blizzard comes in with such furry and covers our streets causing accident and more, with our Ohio weather we can have 3 seasons in one day and your life can change in an instant. Then the sun comes out and melts all that snow away and we are left to remember the mess it caused but with no confirmation.

      Spending the weekend with my mother I observed and wrote...   
     
    She's with you but she could be alone
    she's thinking but there's nobody home
    she notices but she doesn't really see
    and I can't help but wonder what she will be.
     
    She's quiet until the anger roars out
    with confusion causing her more doubt
    like the memories are just falling out
    from that faucet with a leaky spout

    There are days I get so frustrated with life...
    so many ups and downs in these stress filled days! While at lunch with Debbie the other day I could feel myself becoming unglued as I tried to deal with an issue with our rental property.

    Everyday I try and fit time in for everyone and everything needed in my life. Whether I am helping others or helping myself, it is a constant shuffle of finding balance. Feeling depleted from the days activities reminds me that things need balance.
    Why does it seem as we make lists and cross things off there is always more to do? Or those things that get stuck in our heads, just keep spinning like...

    Two steps back...
    Done with radiation... a huge step, yes, yet its been a few weeks and we haven't seen much improvement in anything else. In fact we are in a two steps back phase.
    This week we've attended several support groups, a place where Deb can learn from others in a similar situation and where we, as her support, can learn how to best help her through each stage.
    Sometimes I don't think...
