19 July - Back

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

It has been way too long since my last post on here, but I am back and raring to get going again!

The past few months have been extremely difficult. My nan was diagnosed with cancer and underwent chemotherapy, which really helped and stopped the cancer growing. Unfortunately the hospital neglected to scan my nan's head and as such missed a tumour on her brain, which ended up being very agressive.

Once this was actually diagnosed it was apparent that she was not going to get better. So, although she was still ill they sent her home as she would be happier. Unfortunately this meant that my grandad at the age of 80 had to care for her full time and her condition continued to deteriorate. This made life extremely difficult for my grandad and my mum and dad were having to spend a lot of time helping him.

Eventually enough was enough and they applied to have carers visit my nan on a daily basis as my grandad just could not cope. She continued to get worse and she was transferred to a hospice within a few weeks. We knew then that the end was not far away.

So, yesterday we had her funeral and the service was lovely and it was exactly what she would have wanted. I am happy that she is no longer suffering and has at last found peace.

Whilst all this has been going on myself and my other half have been planning our wedding as we were trying to get it all sorted before my nan passed! It is obviously very saddening for me that she will not be there and even as I type this the realisation makes me want to cry!

But, life goes on and she will be there with us along with my great nan and my other half's mum.

So, we are nearly all sorted and on countdown as it is only 17 days away. I really was hoping that I would have lost some weight before the wedding but with everything going on it has been difficult to stick to any sort of plan!

I have been trying the Keto diet and actually quite enjoy it. The difficult part for me is the carb up at the weekend as I end up feeling quite bloated. Back on track tomorrow though and going out for a run in the morning to kick it all off!

Anyway, just off to the gym. will tell more later.
