It has been over a month now since my last post. Hopefully this quick update will reach you all to say, "Yes, I am still around!" I have put off my creative plans to give myself some much needed down time. Here are a few of the major ups and downs of the last month that have kept me away.
1. Mom recently spent some time is the hospital. She had a serious kidney infection which caused a very high fever. This lead to a stress heart attack while she was sleeping. Thankfully, she is recovering and now home. Her spirits are high - she is one tuff chick. I love that about her.
2. My sister's husband was diagnosed with early stages of dementia, and needless to say, the strain has been overwhelming at times for both of them. We are hoping for the best but at at such a young age, they have a long road ahead of them.
3. I had a scare of my own and ended up requiring a breast biopsy. I'm happy to say everything turned out fine. If you are listening out there ladies, don't forget your mammograms. It could save your life!
4. Last but not least...holy cow....I turned 50 in May. Damn! How the heck did that happen!? LOL
Life is testing my strength and perseverance right now in so many way that I am unable to share at the moment, but I hope life is ready for a good fight, because whatever it plans on bringing my way, I am up for the challenge. I may get tired (heck, I am 50 now - LOL) but I have never stumbled for long.
Wishing you all a wonderful upcoming Memorial Day! Enjoy your families, make great memories, and I will repeat myself again....get your mammograms ladies! :)
Hugs to you all,
