The Villages in Florida!

I have not been on here for over 6 months now. A few people are still writing me about "The Villages." I am glad to answer their questions. My husband has been real sick and cannot walk or help himself much. But, he is getting better everyday PTL. I have been busy. I now have some help so I can write again on the forum. He is 84 and I am 80 now.
We still live in the Villages and love it so much. When my husband gets well he may not be able to drive the car. But he will be able to drive the golf cart to shop.
As I told you all before, we can do all our shopping and medical needs....doctors and clinics and etc. with using our golf carts. Today I took our dog to the pet groomers on the golf cart. Then went to the bank and shopping at the super market.
Glad to be back reading all your emails concerning retirement!

Minnie,
Thank you so much. Things are really getting better for us. My husband just yesterday started to walk without his walker:-) I have had great faith and know that God will give him a little longer time with me and the family.
We are so glad we decided to move here in the villages. A retirement community is a God send when you are sick and growing old.
God Bless!

That reminds me of a hymn of long ago "I walk with God along the way and oh, it is a happy day" Congrats to hubby and I'm glad he is still with you too. He must feel wonderful about being able to get around again.

Minnie,
Thanks for writing. Our weather has been some cold last week. But today is beautiful...the sun is shining and the temperature outside is now at 11:15 am 72 degrees already. :-)
Everyday my husband is improving PTL.

Minnie,
My husband is not doing too well these days. He is taking so much medicine. Now they have him on Anti-biotics for ten days at a time starting at the first day of each month. He is still on oxygen and prednisone and so many other blood pressure and heart pills. He can walk 30-40 feet but then he has to sit down. He seemed like he was improving there for a while.
Hope all is well with you.
Betty
We are so happy to be living here in The Villages. Everything is right here. Where we live I could walk to most everything if I had to.

I'm sure you are surrounded by caring friends, at least I hope so.
Give hubby lots of hugs (not too tight) and continue your loving care. Our prayers are with him and you too.

To all,
My husband is in the hospital...has been now for a week. He does not have long to live. Our family were all together yesterday at the hospital. He may live one day or maybe 6 . He is struggling and suffering with his breathing. Yesterday they put him in a private room with 100% oxygen. With Ativan and Morphin given in between doses. He has been the best husband, father, friend and neighbor anyone could ask for.
I will be back on here as soon as I can handle this crisis.
God Bless All.

Received information on Mar. 5 that Betty's husband has passed away. I know she would appreciate e-mails and especially prayers from all of you.
