I've been MIA, trying to get back on track

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

So I've been MIA for awhile from Spark.. My plan at the beginning of the year was to get on some teams and get my butt back in gear. But life had other plans for me. I've had major events with a few more coming so I just take it day by day. My grandmother was diagnosed with renal cell carnimoa at the end of January. She passed away May 10...I've spent the last few months just enjoying her company and helping my mom and aunts/uncles care for her. I found out about 2 weeks ago my daughter is expecting and is due at the end of Oct....My grandpa was diagnosed on sat with the same cancer as my grandma and was sent home today with hospice. Needless to say, with all of this I havent been very good at taking care of myself. I have gained some weight. I am sure my heart dr will rip me apart tomorow for my check up. I am trying to get back into a healthy lifestyle and get back on track on a day to day basis.

    I have been thinking about you a lot and wondered what was up with you. I was worried you weren't coming back. I hate to hear all that you have been going through. I'm so sorry about your grandma. You had very little time to adjust to the diagnosis and to find out your grandpa has the same thing must have really knocked you and your family off your feet. It's a blessing in a way your daughter is expecting because you have lost so much and having a little one to care for will fill your time and broken heart. I hope your heart doctor has empathy for what you have been through. My doctor has and it has really made my load easier. Sometimes we have to take a back burner for those me we love. Sending you hugs and prayers. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Welcome back!

And I'm so sorry to hear about all the illness in your family! That's rough but you're wonderful for helping.

If your daughter gives birth on the 25th, can I have the baby? It's MY bday :) I always tell anybody with a close date. A girl at work (I swear) held hers in until the 26th cos I had PLANNED on that baby being MINE! :)
