It's been a rough couple of weeks..

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

First let me apologize to all of you who have been following my food logs. I haven't been keeping up with them like I have in the past.
The last couple of weeks have been challenging.

First off, I was in fear that my 11 year old Husky was going to have to be put down or given away due to a disgruntled (jealous) neighbor who informed animal control that I had a wolf hybrid. Hybrids are not allowed in the city and I was not aware of this.
Well, that situation was remedied thanks to some very knowledgable hybrid rescue organizations who informed me that I in fact DID NOT have a wolf hybrid. Thank GOD.
So I can keep my dog. That ordeal stressed me out for about a week and a half.

Then the even more blowing news ...
My Boot Camp Instructor and Mentor was diagnosed with a malignant cancerous brain tumor on Saturday. She's at MD Anderson in Houston going through many tests and will have surgery on Monday for this aggressive tumor. She has been my motivator and inspiration for all my successes in my weight loss endeavors.

She's only 29. She's a strong Christian girl and has always been a fabulous witness to those around her. Her boot campers love her dearly and we're all in agreement that she's gonna kick this tumor in the butt just like she does us at camp. :)

I always say, God never allows more than we can handle, and sometimes He gives the heavier loads to those who are stronger to handle them.... :) I just made that up.. but I think it's so true..

The tumor is larger than a golf ball. They are shooting to remove 98% and treat the remainder with chemo and radiation.

Your prayers are appreciated.

    So Sad to hear. Now you just need something to focus on. I have a project that will keep you busy.... keep me in check. I have fallen off the wagon and I know now is not the time with vacation only three days away. I don't want to have the "I;ll start Monday" attitude cause that never worked in the past, why would it now.

    Keep your chin up.
