An odd story
To listen to in Aura on my iPhone!
This thing has been my lifeline for a long time...it was my only link to the outside world through my long recovery in the hospital after my massive stroke. I would often call my wife, or have a Facetime chat with her at all hours of the day or night. My youngest daughter would Facetime call or message how much she missed me, and loved me, from her own iPad or iPod...letting me know that I was missed and loved despite my absence. I would often fall asleep holding the phone, then wake up in a panic trying to find it, calling for a nurse to help.me, then finding that it had fallen to the hard tile floor while I slept. I kept in contact with friends, family, and co-workers during my long hospitalization via Facebook on it. I complained enough publicly on Facebook about the horrendous treatment I was subjected to there that reporters and state regulators reached out to me to get my story (I didn't learn about this until well after my eventual release and return home).
Now, I keep all of my health-related things in this iPhone, my pill reminder app helps me keep track of what I need to take and when, my app which runs my scale and my blood-pressure monitor live in here too. I track my maintenance walks through an app on here too! All this, plus notes, calendar/schedule, and more? I LOVE IT! I can't hardly wait to be able to upgrade to a bigger, better, newer device!
