Hello, thank you for visiting my blog! As you will read throughout my blog, I am a little person/person of short stature, but, that’s not my story, at least it wasn’t when I started my blog.
I started my blog in 2009 and it was originally titled “Wonderful Wonders.“
I live in & love the Hudson Valley, NY. In 2005, I met the man of my dreams, my soul mate, my “Honey.”
Together, we traveled in and around the Hudson Valley and beyond. My blog started as a place to highlight and feature the many wonderful people, places & things of our travels. After traveling around and blogging for 3 years, I paused blogging at the end of 2011 as I was preparing for hip replacement(s), yes both hips but one at a time.
Being a little person means my hips need to be custom made and can take nearly one year just to be made.
- November 2013 – Hip surgery #1 – right hip – all went well.
- June 2015 – Hip surgery #2 – left hip – unfortunately this hip “slipped” and revision was needed
- June 2016 Hip surgery #3 – left hip revision – sadly resulted in a life altering situation (hip surgery gone wrong).
I woke up paralyzed from the waist down. In a matter of hours my life was forever changed. It’s taken me a few years to rediscover myself and truthfully I’m still not 100% and not sure I ever will be, but I’m working on it.
Then in late 2018, it hit me, Wonderful Wonders doesn’t have to be only about the wonderful people, places & things from our travels but in fact, Wonderful Wonders is just that, the wonders of life, some good and some maybe not so good. So now I move forward “LIVING THIS LITTLE PARALYZED LIFE” adjusting to living paralyzed as a little person.
For those that followed me in the past and for any new followers, my Honey still continues to make me smile, laugh & feel loved! Together, since 2005, we’ve had our share of ups & downs like most people, with the last few years forcing us to LEARN new ways to continue our journey.
I hope there are a few of you out there that will still follow as I now wonder what’s it all about, as I begin to dig deep to understand the “why me” of my life. I’m looking forward to sharing with you all my progress and journey of attempting to understand and manage my new journey, my new life.
I wish you a journey filled with days of exploring new people, places and things ~ take a minute to learn from and enjoy each new adventure along your way!
