A new normal

I’ve been back from the hospital for about a week and a half and I’m so happy to be home. What brought me to the hospital was pneumonia and a UTI. I could barely talk or hear for the 1st couple of days. I just didn’t know what to do or how to fight this and in my darkest hour I heard my sons voice saying, Daddy Daddy wake up. It wasn’t his real voice, but a figment in my mind. This definitely spurred me on and I had to find a way out and keep fighting. In just a couple of days I recovered and was feeling kind of normal again. While I was in the hospital I had a swallow test and was found to need a change the liquid I would drink now had to be thickened and my food had to be softer. This really stinks, but it’s what I have to do now. Once again I have to make changes in my life, but it is what it is.

Some more unDIAGNOSED2

Here is part of chapter two from unDIAGNOSED2: It is no secret that I love to talk, even though I’m not sure if I always have something of importance to say. If you ask my wife I never do. That said, I still like to talk, though my speech is often a little labored, especiallyContinue Reading

Ok, ok

I was working on the chapter layout for us to work on tonight and I found myself with some tears rolling down my cheeks. I determined I must be a bit of a crier as I’ve had numerous blog posts where I cried. This time I was writing about losing the ability to eat andContinue Reading

Motivated

Sometimes we just go through the motions of our everyday activities because that’s what we need to do and then there are times we get really motivated to do more. I was doing some research for another book idea I have and I became frustrated with what I was seeing and it just lit aContinue Reading

For me

Sitting back and looking at all my struggles and triumphs over them and all I can do is smile. With more struggles today, like writing this blog without my glasses as I dropped them and can’t pick them up I was able to assess things. My wife and son are at the forefront and IContinue Reading

Since I’m here

I like to say since I’m here I might as well dance. MS has definitely given me some challenges and I just roll with the punches and figure things out on the way to combat them. I keep dreaming and pursue those dreams, MS will never take that from me. One challenge has been eating,Continue Reading

Help someone

I have this site to be a place for me and others to share. Far be it for me to be self-centered and just let it be a place for me to blog about what’s going on, promote my books, and just overall learn about Randy. I have always prided myself on not being soContinue Reading

What

I’ve recently made a decision on what I will ask the other do about my hearing. I’d like to say the hearing aids fixed this problem and after numerous attempts at changing things up I saw no improvement. Just like everything else I have to work a little bit harder, so conversations are a littleContinue Reading
