 Some weakness, some...for lack of a better description...bull-headedness, sagging head, and strong desires to sleep. And, a few other added spices. One day can be all that. And, it was. Monday. Tuesday, he was right back to moving forward. Tired, but expected. Warmer physically and emotionally. More cooperative and engaging. Wednesday.  Unremarkable.  Then it was Thursday. I had a couple of stops to make on the way to the facility. One of which was to pick up my purchase of a nice, but inexpensive current laptop to let Jim navigate a keyboard and stimulate the old geek cells. H ..read more

 Over the years, we have missed at least two opportunities to hear the Fort Worth Symphony perform one of Jim's favorite classical pieces. Stravinsky's, "The Firebird ". Either we would be gone and traveling, had other plans on the same evening, or we already had our season package selected and did not fit in another performance. Finally... he booked it. We had it on our calendar for 6 months. April 22, 2023 should have been a lovely evening at the Bass Hall, but we did not see the performance that Jim was really looking forward to. That day was one week to the day after the collision tha ..read more

 Jim has always been very stealthy...as he prefers to call it. Prides himself really, as to how clever he can be to hide a gift while we are shopping. Something he thinks I would like or made mention of in passing, then quietly tuck the purchase under the opposite arm that wraps me or holds my hand. Swapping the package back-and-forth as needed to try to keep the secret, and having so much fun pulling it off. Even if I saw it, or caught on to the game, I would never let on. It was too delightful letting him go on with it. Then when my birthday came, I would be surprised all over again and ..read more

 There is a tactic and game, if you will, used in teaching communication skills. Corporations used it years ago. Marketing companies and staffs made a point of this demonstration to help people realize how the words they say... in the sequence that they say them... can be perceived by the listener. Now, the listener. That's a whole other story. Culture. Experiences. Attitude. Ego. Willingness. Even profession. These and more all influence the interaction. I think willingness and attitude are most paramount and can override all the other influences and bring people together and create unde ..read more

May 20, 2023 The significance of that day for me was that I saw Jim move 2 toes on his left foot a fraction. It was so brief...a twitch...it could have happened before without me seeing. Or at night with no one there, but I like to think it was the first time.  May 23, 2023 Three toes. Three toes on his left foot moved purposefully and deliberately.  May 28, 2023 All the toes on Jim's left foot stretched and wiggled...and...moving from the ankle, he shifted his foot from right to left across the bed's footboard. Muscles in his shin visibly firing and pulsing throughout the afternoon ..read more

 Jim gets really bored with TV. If it is sports, you may get his attention. Baseball for sure. He particularly loves the end of the season, into the fall when the race for the pennants and the Series is full on. Stats. Athleticism. The memories of hot dogs and cheers over the years. "Field of Dreams" good times and just simple enjoyment. He always wanted to support the Texas Rangers, and has been to dozens of games Even singing the National Anthem with friends of the Regal Opera Chorale a few times to open the game. That...he loved. Syracuse orange football and basketball comma oh yeah. W ..read more

 It seems almost ludicrous, to use one of Jim's favorite words, to give a man, an engineer... with a genius IQ... simple math problems of 5 x 5, 10 x 3 or 100 x 2 and 300รท2 . But, when you don't even know that you're injured and have a baseline of this is who I am... this current stage... you have to start somewhere. But, it became funny pretty quickly. So I wrote down three simple problems a row. What was very interesting was that his brain automatically tried to use all three together like a major equation. And, I could see the pencil marks that that he was making and the thinking that ..read more
