||I am retired, loving every minute of it. I've had 6 hip surgeries within 9 months, with one more to go this summer. While in the nursing home for my last surgery, it was discovered my husband had lung cancer and ended up in the nursing home with me. He passed away shortly after that. Then four months after he passed, my nine year old grandson drowned. But through all of that I continue to watch Ellen who makes me smile. Just one foot in front of the other, put a smile on your face and go forward. I honestly believe my husband is in a much better place, he is no longer suffering.
