My World in Photos … I’m Finally in a Happier Place


By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee/@GeeGranny on Twitter



Sometimes … my photos can express more than my words can. My world is a happier place after almost 6 months of pure Hell. Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee.

















After 5 1/2 months of medical emergencies … this is my world, today.  Skip is doing very well after being in the hospital … going through medical emergencies that threatened his life … since January of 2016.



I’m so happy to say that for the past 4 weeks … he has been on even keel.  He did have 2 nosebleeds that required trips to the emergency room.  Thankfully he didn’t need to get blood those times.  The first nosebleed … he had to have 2 pints of blood.  I had to go to the emergency room, once.  That has happened in the past 4 weeks … I still call this even keel … because no one was admitted.  Skip has been admitted 6 times since January with life-threatening emergencies, several surgeries.  I had surgery in April.



We are walking more, and feeling better physically … mentally.  As Skip becomes stronger … so, do I … mentally.  I become happier.



So, for today … this is my world in photos.  Doesn’t it look like a happier world?




Note by this Author:


I feel the stirrings of wanting to write again.  I was afraid that all that was happening in my life would crush my writing spirit … I’m back.  I have also, been interested in my second book book I’m writing about Victoria Fairchild … I have begun working on it once again.  I am re-writing it as I go … to become familiar with all I’ve written … to get into my story, my special world once again.


So much has happened in our lives for the first 6 months of June.  You can read back to see all … I won’t bore anyone trying to name everything, now.  It’s hard to believe all that has happened … even the doctors have been shaking their heads.  We are recognized in the emergency room and on the floors at the hospital … gracious.
