Brain Drain

I do intend to post something at least semi-interesting here, at some point. I do. I just don't know exactly when my brain fog is going to lift enough to let me have something interesting to say - well, at least something to say about something other than being sick.

It's not that I'm not doing anything else. It's more like everything else I am doing is either unpleasant enough that I don't want to talk about it (gee, anybody want to read a treatise on cleaning incisions? Tax talk, anyone? Anyone...?) or boring enough that there isn't much to say about it (I watched TV last night. And the night before that. And the night before that.)

I do have some thank-yous and interesting things to post in terms of photographs... when my body will let me do some decent photography. I'm hoping that will be soon, but it won't be NOW, which would definitely be my preference.

So I must ask you all to be patient with me (something I am failing at woefully, myself), and wait just a little while longer. In the meantime, if you want to treat yourself to some whinging, feel free to visit me on my other blog, where I am less constrained by taste and tact. After all, I've never managed to shut up completely, not for long!

We are fine with being patient with you-you need to be patient with yourself! I am sending you a dose!

Yes, you should be more patient with yourself!!

I'm going to share a lesson that my son (born quadriplegic, with Cerebral Palsey, as a result of a difficult delivery) taught me...

Do you know why people feel sorry for people with handicaps? Because they think about all the things those people can't do. For example: My son can't walk.
He can't feed himself. He can't dress himself. He can't go to the bathroom without assistance. His tongue & voice are affected so he can't speak clearly. Pretty sad, huh? You know what Ben says? He CAN do a lot! He owns his own home (a mobile home). He lives by himself! He has home health care aides that come in and feed & dress and bathe him and assist him in the bathroom. He CAN operate his motorized wheelchair and drives all over town, when the weather is nice. He CAN operate his computer (with the help of a huge keyboard), his T.V. and his Serus (sp?) radio, with the aid of huge remotes. Ben uses a big-button, speaker phone and he CAN talk. He prefers to make his own phone calls ~ the person on the other end of the line just has to listen! Unlike a deaf person, Ben can hear. Unlike a blind person, he can see. He can relate to the world and the people around him and he can experience life. Ben is not to be pitied. He is to be REJOICED! He is lucky! He has many wonderful friends, a great attitude and an awesome MOM... I can't begin to tell you how much JOY Ben has brought into my life...


Please tell us about what you CAN do!
