Everytime there is a special ocassion in our lives my hubby always struggles to think of the perfect gift he will ask for ideas and in the ends almost always works out something pretty special.

This year he has outdone himself. We will be married two years soon and today he came home with a very special gift with the words in the card saying keep warm.

He followed this with the best thing I have been given since I discovered this disease he gave me an electric throw rug so now instead of going to bed with the electric blanket to warm up we can sit together as a family and watch movies, I can use it for poker nights with out having to rewarm wheat bags, I can use it when sitting on the computer late at night cause I cannot sleep oh the many uses I will wear it out I am sure.

The other great feature is it adjust up and down to stop over heating according to room and body conditions.

We have been on such a rough road dealing with all the changes this disease has made to our lives and he again shows his understanding and love for me by buying such a thoughtful gift. He is truely amazing, I am truely lucky and this electric throw rug would be great for anyone out there suffering with raynauds.
Kindest Regards

Sharon

Sharon,
Please give your husband a hug from me! What a wonderful and thoughtful man, and what a lucky woman you are. Sometimes it takes time for our significant others to come around, but when they do - they become an advocate and true partner in dealing with this disease. Congratulations on your two year anniversary!

The blanket sounds ideal! Looks like staying warm is going to be easy from now on.

Big Hugs to you both,

We just celebrated out 38th anniversary on the 12th of July. It is good to be alive and well. I hope to reach my 50th. I also have an electric throw. I received for my birthday. I haven't taken it out of the bag yet. Winter will be here soon enough. I hope everyone is having good thoughts and feeling well today. Sheryl
Strength and Warmth,
