My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Recovering

Life is such an adventure! Cricket spent part of her birthday evening at the Emergency Room (for me). I told her - Sorry Cricket this isn't the funnest way to celebrate your birthday!  Prior, we did enjoy cookies at the office and taking them over to another agency.  I have a concussion from a 'run in' with an electrical box on the side of our house. No, Cricket was not working.
We'll recover and be just fine.  In the meantime - headache, fatigue (I can't remember feeling this tired), nausea, and confusion/forgetfulness.  No major decisions to be made today :).  Bright spot.  We are going to put a flower pot in front of this electrical box as a marker to avoid this 'run in' again.  More flowers, yay!

Oh Becky, I'm so sorry you had to go through this. Nice that you have a positive attitude as usual. I'm sure Cricket did not mind at all being at the hospital with you.

Hope you feel better soon. Please take care.

OUCH....my goodness. I think because you are so able to do so many things, we "forget" that there are many obstacles still out there for you.
Take care of yourself!!!

Becky, I am so sorry to hear about your run-in with the electrical box. Concussion is not fun! I, too, have had it before and it leaves one feeling extremely vulnerable and confused. The only advice - rest and go with the flow.
Get better soon. We love you.
Lots of hugs to Cricket too.
