My grandpa just passed away...

Sunday, September 18, 2011

Wow, this past week has been so difficult. I had surgery last Monday for gastric bypass which went well. I have been getting stronger day by day, however my biggest supporter, Andy has to work a lot right now as it is his busy season. I knew this going in, but I have now found out additional news about his job that he will be changing job duties which will uproot out life a bit.....

On top of this he had to be out of town today, tomorrow and Tuesday for work meetigns that he cannot miss. My Mom called not knowing he was gone and told me my grandpa passed away at 3 pm.

Good thing is that I cannot eat my sorrow away, because of the surgery. So instead I went for a walk. I still don't feel great but I am glad I got out and walked a bit ( even though it is raining here and I needed an umbrella). It made me feel better that I handled this in a healthy way as well.

I just wish my honey was here as I really just need a good long hug ands snuggle from him.

    I am sorry that you have suffered this loss. At least your grandfather knew about your surgery and how you were working so hard to be healthy. I am sure he is very proud of you. Savor the memories of times together with him.

Try to speak with your husband every evening and share with him what is going on with you emotionally and physically. He may be far away physically but he is still close as a phone receiver emotionally.

You are doing well in not turning to food. If you need help call your doctor and request a referral to a counselor. We all need help sometimes.
