How to Say Goodbye

December 15, 2008 at 12:48 am (blog)

I’ve been trying to process several things lately. I thought I would try and take advantage of my blog that I have mostly neglected. I’ll try to do better at writing, letting this be a sounding board for my thoughts that I’m trying to work out.

Those of you that know me know that my mom has been battling cancer for the past 4 1/2 years. She is now nearing the end of her battle, as her body slowly gives up the fight. We found out last week that the end was near. After she agreed to have a 5th surgery, they discovered that the blockage was actually due to cancer that had spread through her body, including making its way to some major organs. That’s never good.


I, of course, have been devastated and trying my best just to function as best I can. I’ve been tying up loose ends, getting my ducks in a row, trying to make sure the shoe doesn’t drop before I get back into town (I tried to fit as many cliches as I could into that last sentence). I’m not sure it’s really hit me yet. I’m leaving in the morning, beginning the 5 hour drive to my parents’ home. I’m not sure what to expect, except that it’s probably going to be the hardest thing I’ve ever had to face. So, as I try to find my way in this season of loss, please keep me and my family in your thoughts and prayers. This is not gonna be easy.






I will try and keep this blog updated, but I’ll mostly be posting on Twitter. You can follow my posts if you want. You can also download some fun Twitter “clients” that will let the posts pop up as instant messages, which is easier than having to constantly log into the Twitter site. Check out TweetDeck, Spaz, or Twitterific
