    Recalibrate – the tears i cry now are of joy and warm fuzzies (and because your story made me cry too) – i am reminded once more why we were blessed to have you and John as our compadres, for over a decade you have taught by example all the many reasons why we love you so much, your compassion, your understanding, your facinating and funny parenting stories to name a few and then reality sets in, you are our oldest and dearest friends…. You have been with us through the best times and not so good times, i want you to know that this girl is at peace and very thankful to you Angie for being my friend. I look forward to repaying the wonderful things you’ve done for me and my family. Cheers!

    Thank you for this story and yes, what an important and meaningful word: Recalibrate. I can really use it now, with my husband and loving life-partner has Alzheimer’s. I have to keep adjusting my thinking, feelings about how things used to be and can never be the same again, how I am the one who has to change or recalibrate – I like that better – and not expect him to change except toward the inevitable, and how compassion and loving care are what I must continue to give him. It is hard, but I am learning a whole new meaning to our life together for whatever time we have to share.

    Angie & John,

    I came across your blog quite by accident & I have to express my thanks for sharing your story with the world.
    My prayers are with you both & sending angels your way Angie to give you the strength for those days when putting one foot in front of another seems overwhelming.
    Be well & take care.
