To be perfectly honest, I heard a lot of music during my hospital stay that encouraged me: however, I'm sorry to say I don't remember many of them now that I'm home. That being said, I thought I would feature a song used on the season finale of Army Wives not too long ago. This song brought tears to my eyes not only because it reminded me of my unique yet long-distance friendship I have with my friends, but also relate to the lyrics

For those of you that don't know, I've been in the hospital for the last two weeks fighting a infection. The infection started in my back and continued to infect my baclofen pump and some of the screws in my back: as a result, my pump had to be removed as well as some of my screws in the back. Now, I'm on oral baclofen three doses a day both morning and night. I'm also taking Iv medications as well as some other medications..
But really it's not as bad as it sounds... I'm glad to be home

Happy late Memorial day to all my readers! Let me begin this post with a great debt of gratitude to all of you that have served or are serving in the military. It's because of you that we enjoy the freedom of America on a daily basis. May we never lose sight of that... God bless America!
The weekend was beautiful, yet hectic one for my family. For the last few weeks, I have been without my regular personal assistant because of a lapse in my waiver from Virginia: in that respect, I'm lucky I live at home so it hasn't been a big problem because someone is always around. Still, it worries me that this kind of thing can be allowed to lapse if you're not careful. The good news is, I'm approved and back on the waiver with another agency. Now, I'm just waiting for my personal assistant to start again on Monday: unexpected circumstances have kept her out of work until Monday.
On Saturday, my family and I had friends from church over for a barbecue. It was nice to see my parents connecting with people again: it's been a long time coming and I know they've missed it as much as I have. On Sunday, we went to church as usual and then had dinner with my brother and his family. On Monday, it was off to a cookout at my brother's. To top it off, we've had our roof repaired for the last few days. As you can imagine, we're all exhausted-especially my dad; to be honest, I don't know how he does it...
That being said, I thought this post was the perfect way to begin the week. I've heard it said that "Laughter is the best medicine": well, we're in luck.. Candid Camera is back on television.. The thirty minute program premiered on the Gospel Music Channel on Tuesday at its regular time (10 AM). Hosted by Peter Funt and Suzanne Somers, this program takes a quick look at the funniest candid moments of the early 90s.
So if you're ever in the mood for a laugh, you know where to find it!
