    wazabiker,
    I am glad you are around here cause being about 4 months older than me, you keep me feeling young. lol Since we are both here in SC, maybe we will both end up in the same old folks home!

    I don't mind the dark, but darkness, for me, is for sleeping. I also enjoy some alone time. This is when I am wood carving or scroll sawing, both very theraputic for me.

    I am concerned as to what my life will be, say 10 years from now when I hit 83.

    I am feeling the years also. Pain is starting to creep in which makes it harder to motivate myself. I keep telling my friend that getting old sucks thought it was suppose to be the "golden" years. blah.

    When Jim was acutely injured 10 years ago, he was in a coma for months, then slowly started coming back to us in small doses. He had a halo on, teeth wired shut, a resirator and trach, casts on and 4 point restraints on when I wasn't there or nurses weren't working on him. Many a night they would call me back in to sit with him all night if he was agitated. One nurse tied his sheets over his head and left him---I was incensed!!! In my mind it seemed cruel to do this to someone, restrained and struggling to shake off a coma and understand why he couldn't move, open his mouth, etc. I raised hell and they stopped doing it. So now I have to chuckle, because what does Jim do at night? Pulls his covers over his head regularly at night! I found out later that one of his night nurses was fired for stealing drugs from the unit and using at work, maybe that explains some of the agitation....oy!! Deb
