Hello Dear friends,
Things have been so hetic in my life and I have little time for anything. As you know my mother-in-law has been dealing with stage 4 ovarian CA for 2 years now. She underwent 1 1/2 years of chemo and major,major surgery. 4 months ago she was declaired in remission. 3 weeks ago her CA 125 went from 11 to 222 and they did a CT scan and found a spot on her liver, her pancreas and one above her bladder and now she is starting chemo all over again.
A year ago June my mother had major back surgery and got a MRSA infection down to the bone that required 2 more surgeries and 6 months of antibiotics to heal. This June 15th my mother and father were in a severe auto accident. My mother needed to be removed from the car with the jaws of life and they were both transfered to a trauma center. My dad, 82, fractured one leg and had a huge hematoma on the other. My mom, 75, fractured 3 ribs and 2 vertabre in her spine. Both were bruised from head to toe. They spent a week in the hospital, 2 weeks in a rehab hospital, 2 months in a nursing home for additional rehab and now are in a personal care home. My brother and I have been given the task of cleaning out their home which has been a unbelievable undertaking as they were hoarders and there were 3 rooms piled from floor to ceiling that you could not even step into.
We have been working non-stop for the past 2 months there and are only abut 1/2 way done. Needless to say I've had little time for anything else...including writing. Please hold me and my family in your prayers as this has been a very stressful time in our lives and we are due just a bit of calm.
I miss you all and think of you often.
