2017 - it has been a long time! Many excuses but not many reasons. Many health issues that I am trying to overcome (knee, broken ankle, out of control diabetes- which I am tackling with more fervor- heart issues resulting in catheterization.) perhaps the most compelling reason is my wonderful dad going in for minor surgery and never coming home or being able to communicate with any of us. (he suffered a brain bleed then irreversible stroke) he spent 12 days at hospital and 6 days in hospice. When it was over we had to place our mom in a nursing home. Her Parkinson’s is too advanced for any of us to care for her. Just 2 weeks ago on my sisters 50th she had a medical emergency resulting from neglected diabetes. Basically, we were so consumed by the events of the summer, we forgot to care for ourselves. I also care for my husband who has severe psoriatic arthritis. It’s time to take care of Me!
