Sad Sunday 4/21/13

Sunday, April 21, 2013

emoticon Today has been a rather slow and sad day. My mom's best friend has been diagnosed with liver and stomach cancer. They are very close and usually talk via telephone every day. She had not been feeling very well and my mom had urged her to see her doctor. Her friend just blamed it on being tired from caring for her husband who has Alzheimer's. The doctor sent her immediately to the hospital and reports say that she is not expected to live through the week. Needless to say; my mom is taking this very hard.

On a positive note: At least my 2 aunts are here along with my husband and me so she has a family support system right here at the park.

All is quiet on the exercise front. I did get my 10,000 steps in and I have followed my food tracker today. I'm feeling a little worn out but a good night's sleep will probably help. Right now my goal is to just maintain the status quo and be there for my mom.

    Will pray for you, your mother, and especially for your mother's friend. I am so very sorry to hear such sad news. (HUGS) If you live near your mother, her friends probably become yours too so I included YOU in my prayers too.
