I had a great day - had therapy and we did a few exercises that open up a lot of discussions and thoughts... felt great about it and covered some good groundwork. Thereapist is pleased i got into the intuitive eating workshops :) I feel very blessed!

Mom had her stitches out and her back surgery was successful :)

Last but not least I was invited to visit a TOPS Chapter from our former State & International 2011 Queen who is a wonderful lady Dione Houdsen and she asked me to share my journey and story. it is something that i was touched this is only my second speaking engagement and i am still learning on what to share... all i want is to touch one person and hopefully they find the help they will need to succeed on their journey. Things went well!! I feel good overall!!!

    Sounds like you're on the right path - so glad your mom is doing better. Despite how trying times can be I'm sure you treasure all the moments you're together. Can't tell you what I'd give for just one more afternoon with my mom.

MOM IS COMING HOME WOOHOO!!! That is all i can say!! I'm excited!! Also last week i started the ball rolling on the 14 week workshop investigating if my insurance could be used it can so i'm so happy!!! Since i'm doing that i got the one day workshop to get me ready at a discount from 110.00 to 70.00 woohoo!!! I am excited and proud of myself for not giving up and researching it!! It was funny because my Therapist sent me an email telling me they might have some reduced workshop spaced on the one day one when i told her i was in she was excited i had already researched and done! Now all that i have left this week to feel complete is to start my exercise program back and stay consistent. I will do it!!!

Gabby thank you for getting me started on this challenge!!!!

Mom better today hopeful for homecoming!

Jan 20, 2013
Today well got a call to hurry and come in at 10 because mom took a turn her blood sugars had been at the lowest 70 than highest over 500 blood pressure out of the park she was shaking and no feeling in arm and leg. Urgent response team requested. I got there she was breathing heavy and scared. Ran a bunch of test to rule out heart attack and stroke. Also checking for clots by the time i left the hospital at 6:30 her blood sugar was normal at 144 and BP was back to normal she finally had a bowel movement (TMI) and she had eaten well most of the day. They couldn't do the whole test for the clot so will try again tomorrow so blood thinner for today. Just want her to be well enought to come home. I know she is in the best place possible but it is hard to go through this at times. I don't do stress well.

Will try to count my blessings and hope and pray for things to get better!!!
