Boy I guess I have been gone a long time. Let me catch you all up on the happenings here. My Mom moved in with us in April of last year as she had two bad strokes and my Dad could no longer care for her even though I went daily to help. So Mom has been with me for almost a year now towards the end of this month. Dad got dementia and was no longer able to live alone so I moved him over here in the beginning of October. Things got worse for Dad and his dementia, he was having horrible hallucinations. In January we had to put him in to a treatment that they could figure out what was causing the hallucinations, while there less than a week he got pneumonia and was taken to ER, which they gave him meds and sent him back. That following week we had a meeting to go and get Dad as they had figured out what was causing the hallucinations, so he could come back home with me and not have such bad things he was seeing. That day before the meeting the doctor called and said he was taken back to ER he wasn't doing good. A few hours later my Dad passed away from the pneumonia. We are all having a terrible time with this as Dad was doing so good except for the hallucinations, so it came as quiet a shock to us. Mom is having a really hard time with this as they was happily married for over 61 years. Dads passing on January 18th has been very difficult on her. Then two weeks later my uncle passed away with the same as Dad, pneumonia. So as you can see it has been a very trying time for all here. I also lost a SIL in December they found her dead in her bed in Florida. Also very shocking and she was only 50.
So along with all of this and trying to raise my family and keep house, I haven't had much time to play so my blog has went down hill. Things are starting to slow up although we have to go through Mom and Dad things and get a bunch settled yet this summer. I do plan on coming back and sharing on my blog. So if you all can hang around that long I will be back. Thanks for sticking with me and all your nice comments I have gotten during the time my blog was active. You all made me feel so good.
So take care and I hope to be back soon.
Angel hugs

Debby, my heart goes out to you and your family. It is so hard to see people you care about suffer and/or cross over. Know that others do care even strangers and keep you close in their hearts. I know this from experience .God bless and keep you in his loving care.
