Mom to Addison (8) & Gabriel (5)
Stir fry sounds good! I hope you were able to get the bottle of wine open Y!
I took the kids to the gym today and instead of working out I went to the Cafe and did homework for 1.5hours. Awesome! I need to do that more often. I still feel crummy and tried taking the only thing that's pregnancy approved and it did nothing to make me feel better. Blah!
Ugh. So I talked to G's stepmom today. His dad has gone way downhill since we saw him two weeks ago, and the Dr. gives him 2-3 weeks to live. He is not eating more than a few bites a day and has lost 20 more lbs in just a few weeks. G has had plans to go to a concert with his brother for a few months now, so I'm not telling him tonight. Plus his Dr. said to wait a few days before telling everyone, in case he perked back up once they got him re-hydrated. They have to stop chemo because his blood counts are so low. :(
Oh Michelle, I am so sorry. I think it's good you didn't tell G tonight. Let him enjoy the concert with his brother. I hope his dad perks up though maybe prolonging things isn't for the best either. Ugh, life is hard. You want your loved ones to be here forever but when they are in pain and miserable its hard to keep them here. Is his dad very lucid right now?
My mom flew down to Irvine yesterday to move her dad and stepmom into a retirement facility. It was actually her dad's idea since her stepmoms health has declined so much it's been hard for him to care for her on his own. I see what my parent's and inlaws are going through caring for their aging parents and aunts/uncles and though I know it's inevitable that I will one day be doing it I don't like thinking about it. Can't we all stay young and healthy forever?!
I'm ready to chop my head off. All the pressure just feels like my head is going to explode. I took some stuff earlier that I had back from when I was pregnant with Abby. It's supposed to relieve the stuffy/runny nose, congestion etc. but it didn't do anything. What I wouldn't give for some Nyquil right about now!
DH finally got off the computer and took the kids somewhere. Hopefully they went and got dinner because I am not cooking tonight!
Y, did your sister move into your old place yet? Are you guys totally moved out?
