Life is Precious

September 10, 2015
The last few months have been difficult.  Mom calapsed in January and  that ended with a hospital stay.  We found out that there was a blood bleed on her brain.  Also, her brain had shrunk from the Alzheimers.  Unfortunately, there was nothing the Doctors felt they could do for her.

So for the last 8 months we have tried to make Mom as comfortable as possible and gathered around her to love on her.  She passed away August 17th with her family gathered around her.

As a care giver, you find that your loved one has a big big place in your life and when they are gone, there is a big hole that needs filling.  Everyone has been so kind but words just cannot heal the numbness you feel.  Maybe time will help.

I am refocusing my attentions on my health issues and what I need to do for myself.  One day at a time.

I have set a few goals for myself.

1.  Start journalling again.

      Keep track of everything I put in my mouth

2.  Do a better job following eating plan.

No gluten

No sugar, regular flour or other white foods (except gluten free)

No pork

Increase vegetables in diet

Drink lots of lemon water daily (8 glasses)

3.  Set Doctor’s appointments and follow up on treatments.

4.  Take Medicine  and vitamins properly

5.  Spend more time in prayer

These are goals that I hope to get started on.  Right now it is difficult to move forward but I know that life is precious and not to be wasted.

Shalom and Grace to you through our Lord Jesus Christ.
