Week 2 and Changes

Saturday, January 20, 2018

Well this week went pretty good - 1 more pound down and lost and I hope not to find it ever again. emoticon

The challenge this week is an easy one because I don’t like salty things so I stay away from salt.

I am also happy because for the last few monts my husband has been trying to gain guardianship of his mom so that he could move her closer to us and we would not have to travel 5 hours to go see her at the nursing home. This has been a battle for the last two years with my sister in laws. My father in law died alone and away from family due to this same reason. Well finally, through lawyers, he was awarded custody and tomorrow we drive to Miami to pick her up and bring her closer to us. I guess my sister in laws have finally depleted the little money they had so now we can take over.

Well needless to say we are very exciting and hoping this change helps her want to live again. The only concern is that she will be in the same place where I had mom for the last years and I have not been back since she died in June. I’m dreading the moment when I walk in and see her room. So it is a bittersweet moment. I helped him get her in and I’m happy but scared. Please keep us in your prayers.

    You are ALWAYS in my prayers dear Bibi. What an angel you and your husband are for your dear MIL. Why would his sisters fight against something he is willing to do? I just don't understand family sometimes!

    Hugs to you my friend and congrats on losing the pounds! I didn't lose this last week...but I'm sure it was due to too many nights eating out. When we have to work 6 days a week...I'm just too pooped to think about cooking once we get home. Not good for the waistline...even when I mostly choose salads. emoticon

    Definitely prayer. It is so sweet that you are stepping up to the plate to be a support system for her.

    You'll do fine because your concern will be for your mother-in-law, not for yourself. Take a deep breath and do what you do! :)

    Praying for these needs. May God cover you with patience, love, peace and joy as you go through this difficult time.
