It’s Not Goodbye, It’s See You Later

It's Not Goodbye, It's See You Later | RIP Mom

If you follow my blog, you know that my dear mother passed away May 10th.  Losing her has been the most difficult thing I have ever gone through, and I have been through a lot in my 22 years already.  My mom was my best friend, my everything.  She was always the first person I went to when I had good news (after my husband, of course) and the one I went to for advice.  She taught me so much.  To treat people the way you want to be treated and to always stand up for yourself and your family, … [Read more...]

Day 3 Blog Challenge: What Makes You Happy There are lots of things that make me happy.  One, of course is my family.  I love my daughter with all of my heart - I finally understand the love my parents have for me.  I never thought I'd be able to love somebody so little as much as you do for your child.  It's amazing.  Miles is my other half.  I don't know what I would do without him.  He knows what to say to cheer me up when I'm upset and having him stand beside me no matter what obstacle we … [Read more...]

I finished it!  Now all I have to do is frame it and wait until Grandparent's Day for Riley to give it to them, along with the card.  :) … [Read more...]

Really?

So my mom's doctor/surgeon sent my mom's file and information to a doctor at Cleveland Clinic.  That doctor looked over it, and guess what he said?  "Let the poor girl heal."  Apparently they've been doing unnecessary procedures and just not letting my mom's body health itself.  How ridiculous?  I am not happy with that hospital/doctor at all!  It's ridiculous! My parents should definitely look into possibly seeing what a lawyer has to say about all this.  This is just outrageous.  All the … [Read more...]

Tuesday Afternoon Update

They figured out why my mom is losing blood - apparently when they went to put the stent in to stop the bleeding where the surgery was done, they put the stent in the wrong place.  Like, really?  Needless to say, we're not very happy.  We haven't heard anything about what they're going to do because they didn't put a stent where it was supposed to go while they had her under last night.  They just took the stent out.  I'm going up to see my mom and dad after I drop Miles off at work, so … [Read more...]

Update

My dad just called me.  He should be getting released tomorrow, as long as nothing happens.  My mom, on the other hand... they did an exploratory procedure today at 5pm to try and figure out where she's losing blood.  She's had about 8 transfusions in the past 4 days because they have no idea where she's losing it from.  My dad called down to her nurse, and the nurse hadn't heard anything from the 4 doctors that are trying to figure out mom's case.  So we don't know if they figured anything out. … [Read more...]

Update On My Mom and Now My Dad

Well... you know how my mom is in the hospital?  Well, she's still there.  This Tuesday it will be a month since she's been in.  :(  The past 3 days she's had to have 5 blood transfusions because she's losing blood and they don't even know where from.  They're going to do some procedure tomorrow to hopefully figure out what's going on.  So please keep her in your prayers. And if that isn't all enough, my dad is now in the hospital as well.  Today I got him out of the hospital and we went to … [Read more...]

Mom is Now in ICU

Hello, everybody.  Well, to update you on my mom, she is now in Intensive Care Unit.  My dad gave me a call yesterday afternoon saying that she is having trouble breathing and her pneumonia is back so they put her in ICU.  We weren't planning on going up to visit because we figured she wanted to rest, but she had been asking about us, so we went up to visit yesterday.  She looked so bad when we got there.  But once we left she looked a little bit better - her breathing wasn't as labored and she … [Read more...]
