My Son's Hospitalization Update

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

As many of you already know, due to multiple health issues, my 16 - year old son, Nick, was first admitted into the hospital last month on April 12th . He was discharged from the hospital on April 22nd. Since then, his specialists were monitoring his medical needs on an out-patient basis. On May 6th my son experienced several medical setbacks and was re-admitted into the hospital. I have no idea how long he will remain in the hospital. I am in hopes that his health will improve without needing on-going hospitalization for an extended length of time.

I am very grateful for those that have been traveling this difficult journey with me. THANK YOU so much for your continuing support and prayers that I am receiving on behalf of Nick, his siblings and me.

I will try to continue my daily journey with SP by keeping track of my nutrition, fitness minutes and greeting new members as they join the groups that I participate in. I know how important it is for me to remain on track by taking care of myself at the same time while focusing on Nick’s health issues.

THANK YOU for your friendships and support. Love and hugs to all.

    Hi Monika,
A couple years ago, when my husband was dying, and in the long dark period after, it was my Spark Friends - a special handful who know who they are - who helped keep me glued together. It had nothing to do with weight loss and fitness - it was simple friendship, kindness and caring. I may never meet these women in person, although I hope to, but I would not be the healthy, normal person I am today without their unflagging support. You've definitely summoned the right group to stand behind you. emoticon
