Leaving today

Waiting to board my plane to leave for Dallas. Really don’t want to leave as we love it here. Wish we could stay here! Don’t want to leave our friend. We’ve made so many wonderful memories. Walks on the beach, touching really cool sea creatures, hanging out with an amazing friend, and just so much more. We really needed this. Thank you to everyone for your support and encouragement. Here’s to a safe trip home and tomorrow, we get to meet our new kitty. 🙂

Yesterday in California!

Yesterday was so much fun!! We walked on the pier, walked on the boardwalk over the ocean by the beach. We got to go to a touch tank where we got to touch a small shark and some other really cool things like see urchins, sea inenimies, some cool shells, a sea snail, and a sea star. I got to hold a crab shell that they pulled up with a net from a hole in the middle of the floor that went down into the ocean.  It was an amazing day!! But something we ate didn’t agree with us. That was interesting. We had so much fun!! So many good memories from here. Today we are going to the beach and to California Pizza Kitchen for lunch.

i have to be ok for Ray. I see what she writes on the lists and to our therapist. She is not ok, so i have to be ok for her. i have to be strong for her. i have to keep it together for her. how long can i do that? how long can we pretend everything is ok? how long before i break? others have to help me because there’s only so much i can do. i’m doing the best i can do for us all. maybe it’s not enough. i don’t know. i’m trying, but will it be enough. how much more can i give before i have nothing left to give? it’s like the insurance is sucking any resolve we have out of all of us. or do we just pretend everything is ok and move on with life because we are never going to get the treatment we need? do we just accetp that? we feel so stuck and alone, and sad, and depressed, and distressed, and anxious. hospitals don’t believe us. they only see Ray. sorry this is so long.

please donate for a much needed device!!!

Hi everyone,
so I’m trying to get a new device called the BrailleNote Touch Plus. It’s a Braille tablet that will help me with productivity and keeping up my Braille skills. It also would be easier for me to type on because it uses a touch screen. It would be way easier on my joints. I know it is expensive, but I really need it to keep and maintain as much independence as possible. Even if you can’t donate, I wod appreciate it if you could share the link. Thanks.
