Used to being undaunted

Claudia, Age 87

Share my story! Where to start and be brief! Start with the present?..
I live alone in a lovely spacious apartment overlooking the Hudson River, NJ, and the George Washington Bridge.
I have 4 children and 3 grandcildren all within 3 hours or less.
Have always been full of energy which is currently diminished by my health. In short since last august surgery for multiple meningeoma on my spinal chord and spine and three months later fell broke hip. Undaunted (most of the time ) I go to physical rehab x3 a week. But all that and Atrial fibrillation slow me down. So what now?
I am glad to have been pointed to this blog by my eldest son.
Enough for now, more later.

    We welcome you to our blog, and thank you for sharing your story.
    As you deal with your health issues, we still hear your “undaunted” spirit shining through. Your beautiful apartment with that spectacular view sounds enviable, and how nice to have family near-by.

    As our bloggers respond to your message, we hope you will share thoughts about how you lived your 8th decade…Women in their 70’s appreciate the example of “undaunted” women who have been there.

    We wish you well,
    Jane and Ellen
