My Husband was diagnosed with softening of the spine (myelomalacia)

He had a neck compression that was causing bleeding...this disease is a death sentence if not caught early. I am happy to say he had surgery last Wednesday in time and it was very successful. He will need an additional surgery on his lower back at some point (unrelated). But he will live. I have been in and out as I spent the last two weeks in the hospital...he had to wait for the surgery there because had his compression worsened he would have been paralyzed from the neck down. He had fallen several times already where he would lose all feeling in his legs. I have to say I was terrified. I started to write this even before the surgery but putting it on the computer made it seem more real somehow. Today was a good day. He was able to walk to the bathroom...ah the little things we take for granted.

Trump keeps returning to the idea of pulling the United States out of NATO.

Trump apparently wants to make Putin's NATO dreams come true by withdrawing from NATO. I have had mixed feelings on impeachment but if he moves to do that, we must start the process. And hope the Republicans when confronted with Trump's crimes will do the right thing...a gamble I know. It appears as if Trump is making policy beneficial to Russia not the United States. God knows what military secrets he has revealed to his buddy Putin. He is a Russian asset at the least and a Russian spy at the worse. He can give Putin everything he desires from our classified files. This is probably the most dangerous president in our history and he must be stopped.

I have been lukewarm on the idea of impeachment. It carried political risk. But I am coming to believe we have no choice. We must do everything we can to remove this traitor president from office.
