My mom had surgery last Friday. She made it through with flying colors! She is now back at the facility she was before. They are being extra attentive which is good. I have been off work since Wednesday last week and I have requested FMLA until Nov. 26th.

I'm hanging in there. I have learned I need to take care of myself. It's hard but I'm no help if I'm sick or run down. I'm still coughing and I probably need to see a doctor. Add it to the list of things to do eh?

Hope you all are doing ok. I need to look in on you all! Take care until next time...


  1. Glad your moms surgery was a success and that she is doing well. Hope you feel better soon too! I am dealing with caring for both of my parents in different ways. I understand how difficult it is.

  2. Wow, you've had quite a time lately! I've had a couple years of major life upheaval, so went off the grid for a long while. Trying to get back in the habit of blogging and going to check in with my reading list and you popped up at the top! :-) Sounds like you need to take good care of yourself so you can take care of mom. Treasure that time with her. Lost my mom in 2009 and miss her every day! Hugs to you.

  3. Yay! I am happy to hear that your Mom is doing ok.

  4. Glad to hear the surgery went well. Take care of yourself. It's hard when everything is up in the air like this. hugs.

  5. Glad to hear that your mom is doing alright. Like they say if you don't take care of you then who are they going to depend upon.

    Hope your holidays are good.


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
