In Case You Figured I'd Given Up

Thursday, August 01, 2013

I have not. Of course, I haven't be doing that great with my plan either.

Yes, my brother remains in the hospital with no answers available. So as a family, we are struggling. Since he was placed in our home, he became the center of our universe. Now the universe is skewed. My Mother and I take turns staying with him because his disability makes it difficult for the Dr's and nurses to understand.

I have gained but at least I have not returned to the weight I was when I first started. I realized the other day that I needed to get back on here. There is so much support and that's what I need desperately.

So YES! I'm still here. Can't promise to come back every day but am certainly going to do my very best to do so. Your support is tremendous and it's my own fault for staying away so long.

    glad you touched base. I certainly missed you but will continue thinking about your brother and your family-what a difficult time for everyone- I hope the drs can finally figure it out and he can come back home. emoticon

    You have been missed! I'm so sorry that things are still the way they are and you are all in my prayers. Life happens and not always for the better. I'm glad you are back and know that you can get back on track. Love you! Hugs!

    Wow! Quite a surprise indeed! I had thought you'd given up on Spark for good, but you are still on my friend list. I am very sorry to hear that your brother is still so ill, and that your whole family continues to struggle. I'm sending positive healing vibes your way.... emoticon

    Yessss, you are back! This is wonderful. With all this stress and taking care of others, it is not surprising you have gained weight. But you are looking at it positively and this is what matters: not throwing in the towel! You will succeed, I know it. You and your brother are in my prayers.

    I am so sorry to hear about your brother and the struggles your family are enduring right now. And while you can get plenty of walking in at the hospital sometimes, there are other times, because you must stay by his side, that you cannot. And I'm sure eating healthy is a struggle every day...but it's not can be done...i am saying a prayer and sending hugs your way :)
