Hello Blogland Friends. It has been quite awhile since I've posted. From here on out, I am going to make every attempt to post on a consistent basis. With Ron having to go through another surgery, this time to add to his existing shunt in his brain, my life came to a stop as I know it. Now life is back to another "new" normal. His brain experienced some intense swelling and it is as if he had a stroke, unable to walk, talk well, chew and he still can't smile. Each day we look for little glimmers of change and have hope that his brain will bounce back. It takes time as we wait and see. I keep telling him he has a really "good" brain, it just has taken such a beating with so many surgeries and complications. Ron always seems to bounce back from each one even though more of him is taken away every time. This time more so than ever. He feels horrible all the time. Because we are "one" in marriage, I ache for him all the time. I want to fix him, but I can't. I can only meet his immediate needs and keep trying to nurse him back to health. It is always hard to find myself in these times, but I am trying.
Meanwhile, my creative muse took a vacation. I've been trying so hard to find any desire to create, but it has been a struggle. Yesterday I painted up some doll heads and I'm feeling something starting to change within. I really miss creating and find it completely frustrating that I can't just turn on the switch. Our emotions have so much to do with being creative.
I mentioned this on Facebook, and found there were others in the same boat. The other day I created a private group so that we could try and inspire each other to ignite the fire. If you are interested in joining, find me on Facebook. Just putting our heads together caused my juices to start flowing already. It feels good.
Today I have a gal coming to take an ART Doll Necklace class with me. I'm really looking forward to today, spending time with her. Hopefully she will let me take pictures so I can share them here with you later.
Anyway, just wanted to say hello and let you know I'm still breathing, along side Ron. Thank you so much for so many of you who send prayers and for your loving support. God knows who you are and I pray a special blessing on each of you.
