I’m going to keep this short and simple. I’ve been gone again, it’s hard to NOT notice. It’s not that my heart isn’t into it anymore, it’s just been hectic. March has been full of my husband going on work trips leaving me to conman the whole post myself. That’s not that big of a deal, but for me it is. I have difficult children, basically because they are spitting images of me and it’s hard to deal with a mini figure of myself, times two, alone. Plus, recently my daughter has been having seizures, not visible to anyone (we found out by doing an EEG) and schoolwork has been difficult.
I quit my job at Ace and just do my Parent Partner job on the side, but I’ve also picked up a gig at the hotel one night a week. I am currently looking into doing a business or two as well such as Pampered Chef or Lipsense. So if you’ve got any ideas, I’m so open to them!
My grandfather had an infection in his foot and the only option left was to amputate the foot above the ankle. He has been in the hospital since the beginning of the month doing therapy trying to learn how to walk on a prosthetic foot. He should be released hopefully by the end of the month.
Lastly, my grandmother is in the hospital. A week ago Saturday, she was found not responsive and with a temperature, and was taken to the hospital. The doctors found flesh eating virus in her leg and she decided she didn’t want to try to amputate the leg. This meant she only had days to live because she also wasn’t going to dialysis 3 times per week. Grandma is a very strong woman though and has proven the doctors all wrong. They gave her 72 hours to live and she’s now made it 8 days. The family has been gathering around her bed each night, sharing stories and laughs, trying to make grandmas surroundings filled with happiness and joy, not sorrow and pain.
March has been rough, but I’m not asking for sympathy. Just understanding that life happens. And family is always the most important thing to me.
