wednesday update

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

it's wednesday now and Pop came home monday night.

we went to physical medicine yesterday and he has been put on low-dose morphine, yes I know what this means. one day at a time. one day he will refuse dialysis and we will be in the end of his journey but until then - one day at a time.

my journey is going well! I am still managing a deficit daily and the weight is coming back down, if slowly. slowly is great! might I be 119 on saturday? I can only hope!

    I'm glad Pop is home again. He probably fees better as well. One day at a time is the only way to go. I'll keep my fingers crossed for your weight loss on Saturday.

Love you,

    Hon,,,your Pop and my Mum,,,the only thing we can do is enjoy EACH Moment. You will know the exact time to say Goodbye. Mum and I said ours the other night. (I don't know how much time she has left,,,hospice is there, my Dad is a MESS !) but, she bought it up,,,at the same time she wants me UP there and I've explained I won't be well enough to try again to even try again til the beginning of June,,, I really don't think she can hold on that long. I'll HAVE to go up for my Dad the day ,,,,,. How I don't know,,, I have surgery on Mon, and my back is a TOTAL mess.

Important you take care of YOU during this time. I've through this before with my birth Mom (She's my step, but just as dear as my Mom was). Take care,,,remember we have the extra page for support,,, it's there for u.

    Way to go! You are so inspiring. Dealing with things like that and still managing to stay in control. I am hoping that I can reach that point where I don't stress eat, etc. Keep up the good work and best wishes on reaching your goals.
