My name is Evelyn,

For years I maintained a full time job, while supplementing my income with a p/t home-based word processing business; simply known as Evelyn's Typing Service (DBA EMprints - Named by using my initials).

My clientele list included authors, business executives, college students, engineers, lawyers, professors, restaurants...  I had keys to businesses located in the city to let myself in to pick up work in the evening and to drop it off when done along with an invoice.  Others would have an appointment and come to my home.  Living in the state capitol and having my own word processing equipment were definite assets back then.

One notable event took place late in the evening after I received a call from my office supply sales rep requesting me to do some work for the city.  He said that there was a situation at the power plant, it was urgent and at that late hour they didn't know whom to call when my name came to mind.  Reluctantly, I agreed.

On our local television late night news a reporter stated that the city was working on a solution proposal and would have it ready by morning.  What she didn't say was that the work was taking place in my house as she spoke.

In 1986, at the annual Secretary's Day Convention held at Springfield, Illinois, I received a John George Nicolay scholarship as recognition. (a prestigious award in our community at the time named after Abraham Lincoln's private secretary)

My husband of 23 years at the time, Rick had a lucrative sales position for one of the nations largest food manufacturing companies.  We thought we were set for life. 

That was the Good Old Days!

All that changed on Easter Sunday 1994 when Rick experienced a SEVERE base of the brain stroke at the age of 44. It left his entire right side along with his concentration, memory, cognitive skills and personality traits impaired. 

On Aug. 17, 2008 he experienced a severe heart attack with 99.5% blockage.  Several months later he fell breaking his nose and almost bled to death possibly due to his heart stopping and being on multiple blood thinners.  He was diagnosed with an irregular heart beat that may be causing him to pass out.

Due to therapy, exercise and medications he has shown significant improvement along with his ability to walk. However, our lives changed dramatically!

I have become knowledgeable concerning mental and physical health issues including heart problems, strokes, diet, exercise, therapy, rehabilitation, anxiety, depression, attitude, faith, God, hope, patience...

I added an email library for my husband Rick to copy and paste emails received from others to copy and paste. He began receiving so many emails that I had to add another, then another and still another. There are now 200+ pages.
