Starting a new chapter

Saturday, April 05, 2014

I can't believe it has been that long since my last update!! Time has really flew by lately I am back to work, had to leave my son at Advocate because my FMLA was up, it was the most heartbreaking time in my life. I only go up for weekends now I can tell you that this experience has shown me a lot of things good and bad( even in Nicks "family" ) but that's ok we are a few days away from going to rehab at RIC in Chicago, Nick can't wait to get out of here he has been in the hospital almost 4 months now. He has made amazing progress and we have had our share of set backs too. I came back to work and found out the job I was doing, that I created was given to an engineer that is making a whole lot more $$ than I do and now I am an Administrative Assistant, I know my boss put me in that position to see if I would fail(He pretty much said so) but I am proving him wrong and even tho I don't like it I will deal with it. I continue to feel blessed and am grateful for my sons, my animals and my relationship I am in, I really think after this I can face anything.

    You must be so thrilled that your son will soon be in rehab near you and I'm sure he'll feel much better also. Thinking of you and keeping you in both in my prayers. I agree....your son is a fighter just like you and he will do fine. emoticon

    Gee, I wonder where Nick gets his strength from?


I hope you're crying when you need to and smiling when you can! You're doing great!
