very emotional day..just the beginning
Monday, September 07, 2009
Made the journey to Nashville. I knew going it would be an emotional taxing day. I just didn't realize how much.
My sister, Steph, is having surgery at 8:00am Tuesday to remove 7 cysts from her ovaries. This is in addition to the pirimary biliary cirrhosis she was diagnosised with Aug 7th. . We had the family discussion we all had been dreading but knew was necessary. She told us what she wanted done in the event something happened during surgery tomorrow or if a liver doesn't become available. It was hard listening to her tell us what she wanted done. She has 2 children 12 and 16. Her primiary concern is for them and that they would be taken care of. After a lot of tears we spent the rest of the day laughing as we told funny stories when we were kids and some recent ones too.
Make sure those you love hear you say how much you love them. If your family relationships are strained or non-existent, make an attempt to reconcil and repair the relationship before your chance is gone. Don't leave any what if's hanging.
Exhausting trip back home. I'm going to try and get some sleep. The yappy dog is at again tonight. I wonder if I can find some of hubbies ear plugs?
Oh man...how could I let this slip without mentioning it? Focus on the positive and let God take care of the rest. The
!!! I hopped on this morning and it read 196. That's a 5.4 lb loss this week.
Now I'm going to bed.
