Things get worse before they get better

Friday, February 25, 2011

Well, I lost 50 lbs mainly due to stress. Hubby got fired because his sick leave ran out and we had some other family trauma.
BUT hubby is still cancer free and now thankfully "retired". He turned 67 this week and is eating by mouth since last April. We are cooking together and eating more "intentionally". Didn't know I could love him even more than I already did, but it grows.

    So glad your beloved Z is cancer free and that you and he have fallen deeper in love with each other. I'm sure that no one will ever know the anguish and heartbreak that you both have been through to make it to the other side to "Cancer Free"! I hate to hear that he was fired from his job due to missed days from illness due to cancer. You got to wonder why the company couldn't work with him until he could recover, but, I'm sure that you both are safe under God's wing and at 67 he has put in a bunch of good work years so he can feel proud of himself for his contribution,and no one can ever take that away from him! Now is the time to kick back a little and enjoy the grandpa role and maybe get to do some of the hobbies that he has always wanted to do.

    Sorry that the weight got "scared" off of you, but at least it is gone! I hope that you have more energy with your life back to a more even keel. Take some extra time just for YOU now that the crisis is over. You should at least treat yourself to a spa day or a massage! Good to see you back on Spark! I have missed you bunches! XXOO emoticon

    Well, I guess I'm happy for you that you lost the weight, but sorry about the cause of the weight loss!
    It really doesn't seem fair that he got fired for being sick, but I'm so glad to hear that he's still cancer free.
    How wonderful that your love is growing!
    It's great to get an update---thanks!
    Hugs, Leslie
