Climbing Mt Everest

With another full, super moon shining over us, we slept in the same bed together after eleven weeks of Uncertainty, Hell Week, and finally Yuri, the Success Story, fresh out of rehab.

A Solstice Full Moon + the Spatial Cadet

Between the Summer Solstice and the next full moon coming up on June 24, there are a few people who know what happens to me during this time. I move heavy furniture.

Next Lunar Phase

We're in Phase Three of Yuri's Voyage Back From the Netherworld, a new Lunar Phase. The Half Moon peeked out through the spindly pine tree branches last evening.

The Sweetest Kiss

Yesterday I get a call from the new doctor assigned to Yuri asking me about his state of mind because he seems despondent this morning and unable to communicate.

Taking the Time for Memorial Day

After weeks of hospitalization on a ventilator, there is no physical therapy, no chair for him to sit in nor the swallow assessment team since Friday because, “it’s the long holiday weekend, you know.” I know.

Born Under the Lucky Stars

I believe Yuri was born under these lucky stars because after the last couple of days (weeks) of uncertainty and complications, he has come through what seemed impossible.
