Life is Precious

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.

    I like all of these goals and I am happy to be reading your post!! I have found getting outside each day helps me mentally and physically. I walk the dog for about 10 minutes.

      I need to get outside more. Walking is difficult with the neuropathy. But I do try to get outside and sit on my porch. Or go somewhere with Evelyn. Hopefully, I can start my water classes back soon.

    You can do this. I lost my Mom to Alzheimer’s in Dec. 2013. She passed away expressing love for my Dad. That gives our family geat peace, plus we know where she is.

    I experienced the same thing with my Dad a couple of years back and I will be the first to tell you that my fitful screaming and crying out to the Lord was the only thing that brought me through it.

    After his passing I too was so numb for a while and then the tears would come and then numb again.

    I found that at this time it was important to keep pushing against that wall that we call life, although I was probably doing more leaning on it than actually pushing against it but the Lord has brought me to a peaceful place and I do know that his suffering is now over.

    I have just started to realize now that the pain that is left is not the pain of what he went through but the pain is now mine. He is in a much better place and know that his suffering is over I don’t have to feel bad for moving on anymore. One day we will both be in that happy place together.

    I will pray for your peace as well. Shalom and Grace to you as well through our Lord Jesus Christ.
