Yes, I could use a hug, extra smile or an email. Some of you know that I lost my daughter on Sept. 3rd. The liver that was transplanted in Dec. decided it was not happy with it's new accommodations. At first all looked well, but the last 6 weeks things really were not good. She continued to work, even some 12 hour shifts, felt well and was not tired. BUT that did not last too long. She started sounding very tired, but when told she had 6 months to a year to live she decided to make the most of any time left. She was to come visit me on the 18th of this month, then wanted to go on a cruise in Oct. since the family has been planning a cruise for '14, and she would probably not be there to go.
I am still in shock, children should not die before their parents. I am glad that my husband went to be with the Lord in '11 and did not have to suffer this loss.
I have missed contacts with you all and I want to get back into the swing of things here again. I have not weighted that often but have taken off a few pounds. It is very difficult to stand on the scale in order to get a reading but my daughter watches the scale and figures out what it says.
I did greet some of the newbies, just couldn't ignore them, when they have taken a positive step toward a healthier body.
I have seen the successes of many of my teammates, and am proud of them.
For the first time I am all alone. My daughter flew to Los Angeles for the weekend. I do have a friend who is coming to visit tomorrow, because of my daughter's prompting. I have a cell phone and my reg. phone is hanging from my power chair so it is handy if I needed to call for help. don't expect that to happen.
The fun will be keeping her two cats from going outside. Daytime is OK, but at night we close up the doggie door and if they aren't in we are afraid they might go in the street and get hit by a car, or be attacked by a dog. The dogs will come in when called but I will have to be careful that the cats don't sneak passed when they go out for the night.
Now wasn't that just so interesting?? I get carried away, besides I haven't "conversed" with my group for a long time. Have a great weekend, but try to watch the calories!! Sending much love to whomever reads this, Betty
