Well, I had that get-together with friends in February of 2019. And it was relaxing and as wonderful as I had hoped. We talked about when we would do the next one. Only one of my “girls” had surgery in April on her neck. She went home to recover, and four days later, she woke up having trouble breathing. Paramedics were not able to revive her. One of the worst shocks of my life. I still can’t believe she’s gone.
My journey has changed since then. On the day that she died, we were bring our daughter home from the hospital from one of several stays in the hospital. We were so happy to be going home.
I don’t know what to say. Life has been fully of bumps lately – cancer and all of its treatments, losing my stepfather, losing an aunt and an uncle. Work has been stressful. All I can do is seek the strength and courage to keep going through it all.
I know everyone has their trials and I hope this doesn’t sound too whiny. I don’t want to be one of THOSE people. LOL.
On the bright side, I am getting ready to have a ladies’ weekend with my best friends. We won’t dwell on the fact that they are my ONLY friends. They are still the best. I’m sure this will help me relax and unwind. That is very much needed. Maybe then I’ll stop being so uptight so often – I think it is simply stress.
Thank you for listening and for your help.
