Update, Sheets and a Share

Lissa Update

I just returned from a visit to Utah where I was able to play Hand and Foot (card game) with Lissa at the rehab center she has been moved to!  It was soooo great to see Lissa sitting up and able to speak!  She had a trache plug to make sure she could go with out having to use the trache tube for 10 days, if so they will take it out completely!!

Lissa has been working hard at physical therapy, pushing herself to be able to go home!!  She can move herself from her bed to her wheel chair and it gives her a great sense of accomplishment.  It’s a miracle really, a true miracle.

One of her 8 year old sons, Brady asked her if she could come home for a sleep over for just one night.  AWWww!!  When Lissa told her that the doctors probably wouldn’t let her leave yet, he asked if she could come home for a couple of hours.  Still nope, not yet . . . but getting there!

I have to share with you a wonderful FREE program that Trisha let me know about when I was having lots of blog uploading problems.  It’s Windows Live Writer.

My preferred browser is difficult to run Blogger tasks so Live Writer is my answer!  Live Writer has it’s own blogging format, but you don’t have to use it, I don’t.  I like Blogger, but it’s totally compatible!!

It’s a universal writing program in which you write posts then upload to your blog.  Whether you use Blogger, Wordpress, etc this is an writing editing program where you can insert pictures, links, tables, etc. You don’t have to change any of your presets with your blog!!

When you are ready, just push ‘Publish’ and you are blogged! Yes, you can schedule your postings too if you want to pre-post.

I love it, maybe it will make your life easier too!  Thanks to Trisha and everyone else who shares their knowledge!!
