Heartfelt thank you!

This is such an amazing community. I am eternally grateful for all the wonderful notes of support from those I know and do not know (yet) I can not believe it has been 3 weeks since my Mother died. It has been a hard few weeks and it surprises me the little things that seem to bring back memories and stirs up emotions. Like a wicker basket that I saw in a store the other day in her favorite colors. Made me ball like a child when I left the store. Silly, but I have been told that it is not unusual.

My blood sugars have been a challenge. I am on a roller coaster at times, but I am working hard on that too. I saw my Endo on Monday and I got my A1C down from 8% to 7.5%. Still not great to say the least, but better than going up. Any small step is an improvement right now. All my other blood work came back in normal ranges. I have in the past 3 weeks been to my GP, Podiatrist, Dermatologist, Dentist, Periodontist and the gum Dr., had my Mammogram, blood pressure is 90/60 (no medications) and all is good thankfully.

I am doing my Yoga and Meditation, but just not as much as I would like, but it is helping me to try to keep centered. Please know I am thinking of you all. I am hoping to find some time in the next few days to get back online to this wonderful and supportive community. Be well everyone. You all are in my thoughts as well.


Amy, It sounds like you are doing everything you can to keep yourself in balance. I’m sorry for your loss.

Love you Sweetie, wishing you well. I am glad you are taking care of yourself. Your heart will get a little lighter with the sadness as time goes by…then it just fills right back up… with good memories.

Here’s wishing you the best! Hugs…One thing that always got me was the phone ringing early in the morning. My mom always went to work (or got up) around 5 am and would call me by 7:30 and I always thought that I would hear her voice on the other side of the phone line when she 1st passed. I know how much you miss her!

You are handling your situatiion well from the perspective of my experience. Apparently you and your mother had a good relationship and you have some great memories tucked away. Bringing them out may be painful at first, but as you recall them more frequently, the enjoyment of recall will overshadow the pain of reaching through the loss to retrieve them. After dad died and Mom and I ran the farm together for 3 years, we stored away a lot of memories which I enjoy now after 56 years. Never give up. Les
