Here's Why I'm Away

Thursday, May 02, 2013

I've received several e-mails and I just want to say emoticon I've been away and emoticon so very, very much for caring and for missing me!

Here is one reason for my absence:

My brother (who's handicapped) went into the hospital on April 12th and he's still there. My Mother is staying with him 24/7, even though I have repeatedly asked her to let me. She doesn't want my back to worsen so I am limited to going over to the hospital daily. That in and of itself is stressful and hard on a person too.

Rest assured, I will return. I need to. I have gained about 10lbs because I haven't been focused on the correct foods, actually the correct drinks...yep, you guessed it...Mt. Dew!

But, that is one reason for my absence. I'll blog about the other reasons and share how great my parent's 50th anniversary party went when he returns home and we all get back to some sense of normalcy.

    I had surgery for diverticulosis a few years back and they opened me up like that. They used staples and I looked like a giant zipper! Your brother is in my prayers. It took me a couple of months to recover from major abdominal surgery; luckily I had someone too. God bless you. You're also in my prayers!
