I saw Larissa today....

I am pretty sure I saw and talked to Larissa today.

I am from Indiana PA and was in our travel agency trying to book a cruise. A woman came in and needed to book a flight but said her husband was in a wheelchair. I had to leave and come back and she was waiting on her when I did. It is a small place so I waited and overheard their conversation. She wanted to go to Miami for a few days but needed a place where they didn't have to leave. It was only until she gave her name that I put 2 and together. ....She also thought about an all inclusive somewhere and I mentioned to her that she could get passports on the fly if she needed. What was sad was that she wanted a spa too in the hotel but that she didn't want to sound "snobby" It was almost as if she felt like she was not entitled to some "me time". She definitely puts Ian first and she seemed very nice.

I know there was speculation that she was pregnant. She did not look it to me.

No snark here, she looks so young to be dealing with this the rest of her life. Her care and concern for him was evident.

Oh poor Larissa. She really has a tough life, with no hope except heaven (in her mind).

Thanks for sharing. I didn't think she was pregnant but glad you could see she wasn't.

Makes me sad.

Larissa is the woman who married her fiance after he had a traumatic brain injury, right? No doubt she deserves some "me" time.

Aw, I get excited to hear from people in Indiana. I'm from Altoona and went to IUP. I miss it there so much!

Larissa and I actually were in the same year at IUP, and I'm pretty sure we were in the same dorm. We have a lot of mutual floormates as friends on Facebook.

I'm glad to hear she is trying to care for herself. Oddly, I would much rather donate $100 for her to get a massage than to the "Anderson Family Fund."

well it sounded like a anniversary trip for them. She mentioned they went to Annapolis for that but she wanted a beach. There were just so many details she had to worry about with him, the flight, the hotel, wanting a restaurant there so they wouldn't have to rent a car, it made me sad to think about how EVEERYTHING is difficult for her.

She wanted to stay by the beach but then needed to be by the airport too. It just sounded like they needed a break but even in the planning of that she doesn't get one.

I've only followed them loosely, I didn't realize they were so close to home. I'm from the Murrysville-Greensburg area.

FYI that Larissa did post pics of her vacation on her web site:

Looks like they had a good time.

They keep posting that he's walking.

They keep posting that he's walking.

In December she said he could walk about 10 steps on a treadmill, holding the rails. Maybe he can walk a few steps unassisted, but he obviously still needs plenty of help.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.
