3 weeks ago… A Thankful Heart

  So much has happened within the past several weeks.

2015: Not Losing Hope

As usual, a new year brings about reflection and resolutions. I found myself annoyed while I was on social media on New Years Eve.

The remaining days were filled with many unanswered questions. Long hospital visits make one day feel like it is a week long. We would take turns staying with Mom. When we were not with her, we were down in the cold waiting area. The first couple of days went by without talking with the Doctor.Continue reading “Journey Part 3: Waiting and a Moment to Treasure Forever.”

Part 2: A Journey into the unknown, heartache and hope

When we made it to Fort Pierce, Florida there were a mingling of feelings. We were all very relieved to be together with our Dad.
