Haven't written in awhile. Hope everyone is good and happy.

I haven't had a chance to check in lately.  My husband is in the hospital, fighting for his life  And the hospital is not near by.  So it is time consuming for me.  I am strong and hanging  on.  Some days by threads, only.  I can't believe some people say the most hurtful comments  to me, at this time. People I have known for a long time. And they should know better.  They don't  chant but still should have respect. And then  they don't understand why I am upset. When people are going through heavy stress we need to use discretion and give people hurting some respect. At least inquire how they are holding up. 
But, I read this again to day, " Tough times don't last, people do."by Daisaku Ikeda.............

And Gohonzon, give me the wisdom so that I can take action. And, Gohonzon give me the wisdom & courage to know what to do about my problems.  also, by Daisaku Ikeda..........  This has encouraged me.

I am chanting for his happiness where ever this takes us in life...  I just want Wally to be happy and in no more pain.

Well The good news is My husband is getting stronger and is getting his faith back. He can even feel his toes now. And, I so want him to be happy. This is why I am chanting so hard. Haven't Been on line awhile. Running errands, and going back and forth to see my husband at t he nursing home keeps me busy. And Two pet that are my children. No car. So everything takes longer.

Also, I have relearned how to chant for another person. Especially in my husband's case. He couldn't chant for himself for one entire month. I felt that I had to do this for him and for me and all the people who know me and is watching me. Wally would do this for me, if the tables were turned around...

My husband is now in a rehabilitation hospice. Possibly long term . He has Encephalitis , and Spinal Meningitis.. and heart condition, and gallstones, Ulcers. But he overcame collapsed lungs 2xt. and pneumonia also 2xt. and high cholesterol, and high blood pressure and Urinary problems. All brought on by Shingles or Herpes Zoster. I implore everyone to get the Shingles vaccine when it is time. Your doctor will let you when it is time. This is a dangerous disease that can destroy you. If I understand Sensei correctly we must chant for Buddhist wisdom and listen to our doctors. This is the update on my husband. Me I have learned so far, that I am important, and my feelings count. That I am a Buddha, and I have relearned to Trust and believe in my Diamoku.....
