NO contact possible: mugged at gunpoint

17 Feb

I’ve been behind on everything,and I’m sad about the recent assault I’ve just read. Remember, even during our own ups-and-downs in life our readers are in thought and prayers. So many things have been happening but please read what has happened to my dear friend “Madelyn” at She helps others. It’s time we help her. Suggestions anyone? Just dropping a note or reading her posts is a kind and thoughtful g

I came home from my Jan. 28th appointment with Xrays that showed enough healing of the multiple spiral fractures I sustained during the robbery to move to the next step.  I now have what is called a “removable cast” on my right arm. supporting further healing of my right hand.

The great news is that, after 31 very grungy and self-esteem decimating days, I could finally take a bath and wash my hair.  Also that I can begin the process of training the fingers of my dominant hand to work in consort again.

    Maybe you can send this to Madeline-first of all I want you to know what a blessing you’ve been to me. I struggle with ADD and life is difficlt at best. I am not nursing at this time due to family responsibilities and it’s very difficult for me at best, but I miss my patients.
    Edie told me your story and I was very saddened, saying prayers. I don’t fully understand your situation because I’ve not walked your shoes, but I totally hate it when people say, “Pick yourself up by your bootstraps and get over it.” This was not your choice of things you wanted to add to your life history. Besides we don’t want pity, we want our lives back! I will continue to pray for you cause that’s all I can do at this point, but it is the power of the Great Physician that will bring healing for you. With perseverence I know you will get to your optimal level of function.
