Yes, I am going to whine like the chubby old lady I am. I am a weak person and I just need to bore you with the details! That usually helps. so, here goes…
On September 12 at 3:00 a.m., my brother passed away in our home. He fought cancer with every ounce of his strength and was the bravest human being I have every known. No complaints or self-pity, even during the last two weeks when it was getting very bad and painful for him. It was an experience I never, ever want to go through again but I fear I will have to eventually.
On September 14, my mom fell and really hurt her arm. We spent hours in the Emergency Room. She is lucky that she has very strong bones or this would have been a lot worse! Her right arm and hand are swollen like a balloon and she peeled a huge chunk of skin off her arm. It has caused her considerable pain over the last week, but it is healing. She has been to the doctor three times over the last week to keep an eye out for infection as she is very prone to getting them easily.
On September 18 and 19 we had family over to celebrate my brother’s life. While they were here, we cleaned out his shed and dispersed belongings according to my brother’s wishes. I did enjoy the company even though it was a lot of work, so this gets a thumbs up.
September 22, I started feeling very queasy in my stomach. It turned into a two day stomach virus. With the way things are going, it will go through the family like wild fire, and I am worried for my mom!
I am looking forward to a very boring and uneventful week! Next week will be the one, I just know it! Now, please send me the cheese!
