A Short Story

Post #202 – My Long Hiatus and a Poem

It’s been a tough month at home. Hub had bronchitis that knocked him out. Thankfully, he is doing well now.

As for me, I had a home sleep study done. The results read that I had an episode (gasped for breath) every second of the entire night. Stunned, I said it’s a miracle I am alive. And my pulmonologist said, (truth), “Looks like someone wants to keep you around.” What an encourager! I get my CPAP machine on Tuesday. then after a few days of using it, another nocturnal pulse oximetry test to see if the machine is giving me relief.

Also, I have had back to back appointments with my specialists and two upcoming outpatient surgeries. Otherwise, we are doing well. 🙂 I just have not had time to update my blog or visit your amazing blogs. I miss you all.

The beautiful part is that I get out of the house with every doc appointment, breathe fresh air, and enjoy our warm winter here on the west coast of Florida. Stay safe, my friends. ❤


Hope keeps me going

When all seems bleak

Hope grounds me

No matter the darkness

The muck would drown me

Had I not had that thread of hope

To cling too

So, above all

I wish you hope

  1. Good to know you’re back and that your hubby has recovered. I have many friends who use a CPAP. All of them are thankful for it, but agree that it takes some time to adjust. Hope yours gives some relief.


Thank you for stopping by. Would enjoy hearing your thoughts
