Life update.

Sunday, April 01, 2012

Sadly, my husband died of a stroke in January. He was only 57 years old. He had been taking medication for high blood pressure and cholesterol for years but he smoked and had heart disease in his family history.

This has been devastating for me and my children.

My husband had started a new job in California. I remained in New York because we had been trying to sell the house since last April. We took it off the market for the holidays. In late February/early March, I put the house back on the market and it sold the first day. Closing is scheduled for early June. So, you can see, I have a lot going on.

To all of you who shared encouraging words over the past couple of years, thank you.

I still need to take care my health and lose weight but too overwhelmed to deal with that now.

    Hi Nancy,

    I have thought of you often over the months and appreciate the update. I'm glad the house sold because I know that's been a burden.

    Agree with Cindi; we'll be here for you when you are ready!

    Hugs, good thoughts and prayers being sent your way...

    I've walked in your shoes too Nancy. I lost the love of my life 6 years ago and he was only 55 yrs old. Not only do we lose our soul mates, our futures as we knew them just vanish and all you are left with is wondering how to fill the void. Nothing can. Time does help some. I'm here for you if you ever want to write me a spark email and just cry on your keyboard. I am a good listener and I know what you are dealing with. Many, many hugs to you.

    It hurts every day.
    Sometimes it only hurts a little.
    Sometimes it hurts a lot.
    But it still hurts every day."
