April / May Update

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

So I haven't wrote anything in a long while we actually since our lady passed away. This year just has not been our year at all. April and May were very rough months for our family. a couple weeks after lady passed my mother in law got a call from AZ letting us know her mother was in the hospital and she was really bad sick. At the time we didn't know how bad.She ended up staying in the hospital for a week or two. My MIL and FIL both took off the last part of April and the first part of May to go and be with her and they told us that she had stage 4 cancer. They gave her 3 months without chemo and 6-9 with chemo. My mother in law had to come back home because of work and they were able to talk her mom into moving her to FL with us to stay here. The plan was for her to come and live here for the rest of her days. My husband and I live with my in laws and I work from home so I would be able to keep and eye on and make sure that grams took her medicine and ate and all that and we would call in hospice when needed to take care of her when I no longer could. So they packed up her house (becuase she would not leave with out most of her thing being brought with her) and they came home the tuesday before mothers day. They not only brought her and her things with her but along with her came two dogs so we also have Hansel and Gretel now as well. On Mother's day we woke up and she was not feeling well and was in really bad pain so we took her to the emergency room and they ended up keeping her over night and then hospice took over they wanted to get her pain under control and then they would be able to send her home but the next day they told my mother in law that she didn't have but a few days left to live. She ended up being in the care of hospice for a full week and she passed the day after her birthday. We are heartbroken that she is gone but she is in such a better place and she is with her family that went before her. We now have her dogs and they are ours. They seem to be taking everything in stride and after several rough weeks of adjust with our 3 dogs and cat they seem to be getting along ok. Gretel is still scared of Pig our dingo, and Hansel and Gretel both chase after the bigger dogs just a barking with they go outside or anytime the bigger ones rough house but all in all they seem ok. I already love the two little turds they are both from the same litter and are 10 year old dotsons so much for my mother in laws stricck rules of not getting any more dogs lol (I so knew that one wasn't going to last she is such a softie).

In other news my sister and brother in law and 2 nephews moved the week prior to us loosing my husbands grandma. I am extremly close to this sister our bond is much strong than my other two sister I'm not sure why that is I love all my sisters the same I just tend to get along alot better with Amanda then I do with Jessica and Samantha I think it is because we have similar personalitys and she really looked up to me when she was little and always wanted me to do things with her like play with her and do her hair where as Jessica and Samantha both didn't really want much to do with me. So I miss them and her something terrible.

My baby sister Samantha had her Senior Rec at the end of May and just Graduated yesterday from highschool. While I'm so proud of her it kind of makes me sad at the same time to see her all grown up. Well she makes me feel old to though lol there is a 10 year age gap between me and her. I still remember her trying on my cap & gown at my graduation. We actually got a picture of her wearing each of our caps & gowns at our graduations when they happened and that is what I did for her gift was I made a picture collage of her wearing each of them and one of her in hers for her gift. I will have some pictures at the end of this posts of graduation and our going away dinner with Amanada & Jon.

Health wise I'm sick yet again but that is nothing new I go back to the doctor soon to get some test results on some lab work i requested to test some hormones that I read that can be affected when you have PCOS that can cause some of the issues I have so I'm hoping that is what is wrong so we can get that fixed. My husband hurt his back and most morning I have to help him out of bed so he is having to see a chiropractor right now because his back is so bad and the chiropractor is the only thing that seems to be working. I haven't lost any more weight but I haven't gained anything either which is super because of the amounts of stress I have been under it is amazing I'm not pushing 400 pounds right now. However I have not been wanting to really eat anything I have been forcing myself to eat. My legs are still swelling really bad and I have an apt for that soon as well they keep rescheduling me so hopefully I will be doing that by the end of the month to find out what the heck is wrong. I know one reason is I havn't been able to do my pump but that is because I have had major chest congestion and as long as I have chest congestion I don't need to be doing my pump because they don't want to risk a clot or anything dislodging so I have to watch that. I'm hoping June is much kinder to us and so far so good. My god daughter turns 6 in a week or so and my husband turns the big 30 on the 23rd so we have some great memories to make I'm excited to spend some time with Amanda , Luke and Isaac Friday before they leave to head back to North Carolina too.

I hope everyone has a great month and enjoys the summer!
