Brenda, I just saw this post tonight. Thanks for sharing! 'Ole Willie has been down some hard roads in his life but he has sure given us so much by sharing his musical gift.

I am so glad you were able to go - sober. Did you ever think at one time that you would be able to have so much fun without alcohol?

Life is awesome!
God bless,
Leslie

HI Brenda,

See "Old guys can still do stuff", perhaps not as quickly or well as we did in earlier years, but we can still do stuff and once in recovery we have more choices, too.

Your good friend,

Beth, I am about one and a half hours from my hospital and the tornados hit almost in the middle of that drive.

After getting the news that my Mom had died, my Aunt and Uncle decided to sell their place in Florida, where they had retired, and move back home where most of the family still live.


Their old house was destroyed in these storms.

HI Brenda and Everyone,

It's tough. But I am doing fine. It's mainly tough because I am gtounded you know, unable to drive for a year minumum because I had to surrender my license due to my seizure disorder. The seizure disorder is from scar tissue that formed on my brain as a result of surgery for a brain tumor in 2000. Then a heart problem was found as the result of an a-fib (atrial fibrillation) in October.) I see my cardiologist on Friday and we will form a defense to battle athersclerosis. I need to know how much exercise and activity I can tolerate without danger. I negotiate the stairs at home with no problem many times a day. So that's a good sign.

I feel I can walk long distances but it's too cold right now. I'm taking Plavix, Toprol, Lisinopril and aspirin for hypertension and heart rythem.

Carol is my chauffer and everything else good in my life. In sum, I'm doing the best I can and better than many and I am doing it sober. God bless. I'll be around.

Kind and thoughtful wishes

Paul
