Where have I been?

Two weeks without a new post begs the question. I am sorry to say that I need to take an open-ended hiatus from my blogs. My mother had a stroke on April 3rd, thus there has been no time to think about blogging. She is currently in a rehabilitation facility, but there are still many unknowns and many decisions to make.

I have LOVED blogging. I didn't know what to expect when I first started, but I have found that sharing my thoughts (both personal and professional) plus photos has actually brought me much happiness. So it is only because my time is needed elsewhere for the foreseeable future that I am putting all of my blogs "on hold".

Wherever you may be, enjoy the new life that comes with spring! I'll be back just as soon as I can be. :-)

Many thanks for all your best wishes. My mother is currently undergoing rehab while we are sorting out goals and future living arrangements. Much is still uncertain as we find our way in this new phase of life. Thanks again for offering so much support. :-)

Good for you for taking the time to support your mother and yourself.

You may be interested in reading Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor's book, "My Stroke of Insight". She is a neuroscientist who had a major stroke at 34, and has fully recovered. She has good information in her book for stroke vicitims and caregivers.

Hello Mrs. Dyer. I am a sophomore at Franklin High in Stockton, CA. I have read your story and am asking you for permission. I want to put your picture on a wall my National Honors Society is creating. This wall will have the picture of a cancer patient, cancer victim or cancer survivor the we will walk for in a Stockton event named Relay for Life. It is an American Cancer Society event that "those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated." I want to participate in this event full-heartedly and have you who have celebrated your life and have struggles so much to be the embodiment of what i think a cancer survivor is. I really do not need your permission, but a response would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your determination to live and your faith in God, Rosa Muñoz.You can contact me at wendy_zeiter@yahoo.com
