Update and Prayers Needed

Journal Entry: Sun May 24, 2015, 10:47 AM



Hi everyone, 

Its been quite some time since I was able to check in with you all.  So much is going on in my life these last few years I am surprised that I am still able to even type this journal today. So I decided maybe its time I updated all my friends here as to whats been happening. as all know we were fostering  2 of our Grand kids for over a year which took all my time and prevented me from being active here.

April 11th 2015 my husband was at work and while bending down to pick something up a dolly ( some call it a hand cart )  fell over and hit him in the back of his head. This caused a serious problem. It caused a blood vessel to detach from his brain which then caused multiple tiny strokes to happen all over it putting him in the hospital ICU for 2 weeks, then transferred to the regular medical floor to get him started on rehab.  

The damage this caused was severe. He can not stand or walk yet, his short term memory was damaged so everything you say to him he forgets immediately, he speaks about things that happened 14 + yrs ago and remembers nothing current, not even what caused him to be in the hospital now.
He has a long road of recovery to get back to normal or whatever normal is now. He will be in rehab for months to come maybe even years the Dr said depending on my Husband.

The same week this happened to my Husband the kids were moved to another foster home closer to their parents, which was hard to say good-bye to them because I was so attached. 

( It was a tearful goodbye  to say the least )  

So here was the bitter sweet pill we were given. The kids being moved finally freed our lives up to get back to the way things were before they came even though we were gonna miss them terribly . To now have life kick us in the ass again by giving us this horrible nightmare to endure. I sometimes wonder why this crap keeps happening, where is our happily ever after time? Its like we have this black cloud attached to our souls that follows us so it can continue to kick us when we are down and put road blocks up when we approach the happy road detouring us down bullshit lane.

I do not know when I will be back to painting but I will be back someday. I been a member here over 10 yrs and have many friends and supporters that I can not leave. I just ask that you continue doing what you all do because I truly appreciate you all.
I still get faves when my last work was over 2 yrs ago and that makes me so happy. I come in here as I can and try to fav my friends work and new stock I plan on painting some day. So don't give up on me yet.
I do wish to ask a favor to all of you if you can spare the time. If you all can pray for my Husband Brian so that he has a speedy recovery. Thank you  so much everyone.
Love to you all and I will check in as I can
Heart
Raven ( Barb )
