Happy Birthday to me🥳


Happy Thursday to all of you! I hope you have settled in to this new 'normal' over the past few weeks.  Here in California we are on Day 31 ☹️ I am happy to say I have adjusted pretty well. I've been home most days since my diagnosis in 2016 so this isn't too hard on me.  I've made the most of each day and am staying active and connected via social media. And the through good old fashion phone calls! Zoom has been fun too, and the Alzheimer's Association has continued our Early Stage Support Groups via Google Meets. All of these have gone pretty well. 
My last blog was written after only one week at home. Since that time I have picked up a few new hobbies and activities. I've been walking outside now since the gym is closed. I've found a variety of different types of yoga classes on TV and that's been fun. I did some dancing with Debbie Allen and have continued to knit almost every day! Like an idiot I also signed up for a squat/ lunge challenge! It's been challenging but I am definitely getting stronger and I'm not sore any more 😜


Every morning I make a list of the activities I have planned and post them on Facebook to share with my friends and family. I'm hoping it might inspire them/you to try something different during these tough times. I've taken  pictures every day of my walks, our garden, my kitty, my Zoom calls, basically everything. It will help me a few years from now when I try to remember what this COVID-19 LOCKDOWN was like. And its fun to post them on my daily Facebook updates.`

My friends and family have made this time bearable. FaceTime calls, phone calls, texts, cards, etc. Thank you all for your support💞Yesterday after my birthday call I was exhausted and had to lay down. My head was spinning! I think too much stimulation can sometimes be a detriment, but it was certainly worth it.


This week will be more of the same. I'm really enjoying the calls on Friday and the other events that Maria Shriver and the Alzheimer's Assoc are doing. Monday I have another infusion. Its #11 or 12...We need to be there at 10am but hopefully there won't be any traffic. Last month we got there in under an hour! No one was on the streets and it was so weird.

I hope you are all holding up well and staying active. Audible books have keep me entertained when I don't want to watch TV. Having Rusty and Bob at home is very nice too. 

Thank you for your support, your comments, your love and your commitment to ENDALZ💜 We will get back on the fundraising trail when the time is right. And hopefully you can walk with us in San Ramon on October 24th! Mark the date and have some fun 👯‍♀️👯‍♀️

Love and peace, prayers and good health to all of you! We will get through this and hopefully come out of it a little stronger🙏🏻🌹

  2. Be careful what you wish for! Birthday wishes may just be a little more powerful than we give them credit for. Caleb's Birthday Wish is a wonderful tale about holding on to one's dream despite whatever we might see as obstacles... Happy birthday wishes in hindi
