Thank goodness 2010 is leaving..Goodby already!

Friday, December 31, 2010

2010 was NOT a good year. Fractured my arm in May one day before my husband came home from a 5 month deployment so our summer was spent going to PT. Then he had to have surgery before he could go back to sea. Holidays & our birthdays were spent apart. My youngest sister went into hospice and is now in clinical trials. Wow. Next year will be better, won't it??

On the "up side", I believe my arm is actually stronger now and I'm back to full weight-bearing on it during yoga & strength exercises. Even with a plate in my arm, I didn't set off any alarms at the airports when I went to visit my DS in FL. My sister actually had a very nice Christmas with her DD in UT even tho she was supposed to be failing rapidly. She seems to be beating some predictions. I have a comfortable roof over my head, food in my frig., and the best friends in the world so with that, I will look ahead to 2011 with hope.

    With a year like that, 2011 is CERTAIN to get better! thanks so much for sending me some sunshine. It is a kind of gray day here, and I have flu. The sunshine is much needed and appreciated!!

    Looking back, it seems like 2010 was bad for so many people. I've had two friends who each lost one of their parents. I pray that all of you ( me, too) also have a much better year ahead of us! At least we are all committed to being healthier and taking care of ourselves so we can deal with whatever is thrown our way.

    I really like your positive attitude. I wish you could bottle it and send some my way. I too pray that 2011 will be a better year for you and for so many of my friends. Take care of yourself. I pray that your sister continues to improve in the clinical trials.

    Glad you are looking at the positive too. I hope your sister gets better and your husband stays safe! When we feel that things are so bad, it always helps to realize what we DO have. I'm with ya on a new year!! Bring it on:) Glad your arm is healed too!

    I look forward to 2011 with hope too. We lost my FIL to pancreatic cancer earlier this month and DH was hospitalized twice this year as well as both of us having other medical issues. 2010 will be a good year to have in the rear view mirror.
