I am so tired of death and illness. Over the past week, my uncle passed, then a communion client, 2 residents and my BIL's grandma. Enough already.
I take Mom Thursday to the specialist out of town. They received all of the bloodwork from here and seem to not know what is going on either. My mom is very independant and is very strong willed, but she is going downhill and they can't seem to figure out why. The bloodwork is showing no problem.
Dee, I'm happy to hear your mom is better. Prayers do work! She will continue to be in mine.
Off to work the next three days squeezing in a funeral as needed too. then heading out of town to take mom to the doc. I'll keep you updated!
A little birdie told me we have a birthday here on Wednesday!
Gayle boy life has been dishing out to you. I am sorry for all the losses of lives. I certainly know that it tough.
I hope that they can figure out what is wrong with your mom. You think with modern medicine that shouldn't be a problem.
Thanks for starting a new thread. Much quicker to open.
I emailed Cheryl today. Let's see if she gets back to me or posts. It has been to long since she posted.
y mom is improving a bit each day. It just took me back when i got to talk to her for a few minutes as to how sick and weak she is. Thanks for the prayers. Gayle your mom is in my prayers too.
I talked to Uncle Albert last night. That is Sally's husband. He is starting to heal but he said he is so lonely. He was sad to hear about mom. They stayed over night there last sunday as it was there first pit stop in the long drive. They only made it one more day after that. My brother Garry from Ottawa is hoping to be able to drive dad's van back and will stop off and visit with Albert.
Hopefully we find out today when mom will come home.
Larry left for conneticuit early this morning. It is going to be a month before I see him minus this saturday. it is going to be tough for both of us.
Dee- you're not alone. I read the posts a few times a day. Glad you enjoyed your talk with Uncle Albert.
Both my parents have been gone for a while. My mother passed away from breast cancer when I was 25. I came home for funeral and went into labor with Amanda. My mom passed away on the 7th of October and Amanda was born on the 9th, I never made it to the funeral.
My dad passed away at 72, January 15, 2004.
I am trying to get back on track with eating and lose the pounds I gained over Christmas. It gets very discouraging.
Dee, I think your mom is about 10 years younger then mine. My mom will be 83 this year (born in 1926) My dad has been gone 22 year+, he died on his 66 birthday when I was around 22-23. Liz was just over 1 year old. I still miss him dearly and even though Liz can't remember him, she feels like she knows him. He is still a big part of our life with photo's displayed, etc.
I'm worried about Cheryl. This is unlike her to not check-in.
You might have been a boo boo baby at first but I am sure that your mom feels so blessed to have you. What would she do without you. You help her so much. But your right your mom was considered older at that age to have a child. I didn't realized your dad died on his birthday. How did he die?
Is anyone working on dropping some pounds?
Did aneone watch Oprah last week and on the web last night? I can be download and it is well worth it. It helps you figure out why you gain weight and the Bob Green gives you a healthy way to lose it for life.
With the windchill it is -41. I am staying home and will do the exercise bike plus yoga.
I am leaving early sunday morning.
Sorry I haven't been around lately. It's been very hectic here, lately. I was in the Christmas Play at Church, so I was spending a lot of time rehearsing. Also, the Tupperware selling has been taking a lot of time--since I can't work in it during the day, I have to try to squeeze in a few minutes at night on it, after Jake has gone to bed and before Stewart gets ready to "shut the house down."
Jake's first Christmas was so exciting. Christmas is definately for parents (kids just think it's for them!). He actually played with all of his toys--we had to take them away from him before he'd move on to the next present. He's not walking yet, but he's CLIMBING on anything he can, so we have to watch him extra close to make sure he doesn't fall and hurt himself or reach anything that could hurt him.
I really meant to check in sooner, but things just kept happening. One of my childhood friends committed suicided on Christmas Day, but didn't "die" (they didn't unplug him) until a couple days after new year's. They harvested his organs because he was only 29 and nothing was damaged. That put me off for a while. My uncle has been sick and in the hospital for almost a month--he just died yesterday. So that's another visitation and funeral. Also, I woke up sick as a dog yesterday and still haven't fully recovered from that. It's just been bad around here.
