Happy New Year

I have to say I am very happy to say good-bye to 2012. 

It really was not our year health wise!!

But with 2013 we have Rod back to work!! Ya!!
His surgeon, heart specialist and family Dr. are all thrilled with his recovery from his heart surgery. With no heartattack/stents it means no damage to the heart. The  aneurism   has been taken care of so he is good to go!! It was a close call but he made it. He is one happy truck driver to be back in "Big Orange".

2012 was the end for my driving with the loss of my eye sight. 
For me I have my new laptop  and a big 24 in. screen with Zoom Text on it. Lots to learn with this program . My teacher Jill will be calling soon to line up some lessons. 
I  got my CCTV which is a real blessing when it comes to reading so many things with small print. A magnifying glass just does not cut it any 

2012 saw me purchase a very expensive mobility electric cart that caused us stress and worry. I love my cart but the people that I got it from were far from honest .more to come on that subject later. 
As many of you know we have horses and they do need me to look after then. With the barn 2km away it i s a challenge to get there with Rod back to work. It is going to be a long winter!!

My next project for this week..(got the tree will be to call Community Care to arrange for a ride to some Dr. appointments. Another is getting medication delivered. This is all new trying to deal with transportation. 

Not being able to get to the barn  as much as I want is emotionally hard but I am trying to deal with that. After all these years it is hard. One day at a time.  Our old horses are so used to seeing me on a regular basis so the change is harder for them. 
Thank heavens for our friend Kim who is looking after most of the chores for the winter. It is a big change for her to have to take  over most of the responsibility. 

She is Wonderful!!!

You don't think how  attached we get to our mobility until it is gone!!
Don't get me is not cancer or some life threatening disease and I am SO thankful. 
BUT...I miss driving and my just wandering up to the barn whenever I feel like it or just going for a drive. 

Thank heavens for friends!! You are all a blessing!!

More pictures to is back to blogging  again!!

I'm so sorry to hear about yours and your dh's health issues. Like you we were also glad to see the back of 2012.

You asked about our internet service, it's a company called Zing, but as far as I know it only covers our neck of the woods and is based out of Newmarket. If you Google them you will find them, great company and service.
