a life cut too short.

Monday, February 25, 2013

My brother-in-law (Donut mans brother) Lost his fight with Amyloidosis this past week, at the age of 56.

Amyloidosis best described as a cancer of the protein in your blood. It then travels thru your system and attacks your vital organ. It is a very rare and in curable. It has been 5 years of a long hard fight. And fight he did.

It has been a very hard weekend for us and a hard week to come.

I will be trying very hard to stay on track with my eating and with my exercise this next week. It will be hard but I am in training.

    Oh Rox, I'm so sorry. I wish you and the entire family a week filled of happy memories. Your brother in law's hard fight is inspirational.

    Do your best to stay on track but also be forgiving of yourself if you need time for your husband, family or yourself.

    I am so very sorry; even when you know it's coming, losing someone too soon hurts. You and Donut Man are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Even though you knew this was coming I know it still is not easy and I am so sorry for the loss of your BIL. Take some time to grieve and heal.
