Rough Week!

Tuesday, June 03, 2008

It's been a very rough past week, and I have gotten a little off track with monitoring my food intake - especially my carbs! There has been so much activity surrounding food, that I feel trapped. Even though I am restrictive in what I take in - it's still too much that I'm taking in. Starting today I'm clamping down and regaining my focus before I get too off track. emoticon

I just found out about 5 minutes ago that my brother David has lung cancer. They have not told David yet because his mental capabilities are that of a 10 year old. We are supposed to have a family meeting with the physicians on Monday to find out more details. The crazy thing is I don't know how to feel! I mean I'm not happy or anything like that, but I can't help thinking of the extra burden this is going to be to Momma. It seems as if she is doing so much better than her children, and has had to be the caretaker for 3 of her children already. I guess this is what happens when you have a lot of much older brothers and sisters. You find yourself dealing with health issues of siblings that your friends don't have to.

    David passed away Thursday evening. I am thankful to God that he did not have him to suffer long, and that David passed away happy and laughing. He touched many lives, as I have witnessed with the outpouring of emotion that has come from people who have encountered him. He truly touched people with his child-like imagination and starry-eyed look at life.

    emoticonDavid was released from the hospital right before the holiday, which was great! They are looking at some test results to see the best form of treatment for him. He was told that he has cancer, but I don't believe that he fully understands the complexity of it, because he is just happy with all the attention he has been getting. We all spent the holiday together, and it was nice. He thinks the attention he was getting from the nurses was because they had a crush on him emoticon

    Thank you CJSTRIP for your comments, they are truly appreciated. I know I have to avoid making rash decisions right now. I'm just coming back from a meeting, and my whole thoughts were - "do I really need this?", is this what I want to be doing years from now - in a meeting discussing budget matrix?

emoticonI made it through Mother's Day without gaining weight! Yeah! I decided to not go to a restaurant, but order in only what I wanted to eat and not be tempted by others' orders and the passing desert trays.
