For those of you new to the blog or have missed the last few posts here is short update.
The middle of December our world was rocked upside down, the nauseous tummy was given a title. For the past 31/2 years the doctors constantly ordered medication for a nauseous tummy they thought was after effects of the gall bladder being removed. Scans and GED tests showed nothing, these last tests gave that a title. The big C came into our lives, rocked our world right upside down. When telling a few people their comments were-- you were expecting this. Are you tired of taking care of him already? Can you handle this? on and on.... lack of compassion and understanding makes me so angry. NO! We were not expecting this, NO! I'm not tired of taking care of him. Can I handle this? I've been handling it for a long time..I'll continue to do so. Are there days where I'm overly sad and down, yes there are, are there going to be more? I'm sure there will be. For now I'm doing fine, after all it isn't about me.
With temperatures at -11 and a windchill of -23 there won't be any walking of the dog today, feeling the sun and wind on my face looking up to the heavens and constantly asking why him.
If you have a friend or family member facing these obstacles in their lives, be patient and understanding, use a little compassion and realize their world is being turned upside down. Don't abandon them, they need you more than ever.
I had to get a few things off my mind, so thanks for reading my small rant.
