Pinky swear ... I am still here!

Oh how I have missed blogging!  The last couple of months have been really hard!  It has been one medical issue after another for family, dear friends and loved ones!  The Lawyer family is all healthy and happy but so many of our loved ones are really sick!  My heart has been so heavy and my time has been stretched so thin!  Blogging had to move down the list ... pretty far down actually!  Where oh where do I begin ...

November 15 ... my mother suffers a stroke while visiting my grandmother.  Unfortunately she does not receive the proper diagnosis and she boards a plane five days later for a three week trip to Germany.  She travels ok ... but clearly something was way off!  It is not until early Jan that she gets a proper diagnosis and her medical history has complicated the situation. 

December 12 ... Lawyer's mother is diagnosed with dementia.  He takes the news pretty hard.

December 20 ... close family friends received a stage 4 diagnosis of metastic melanoma for their precious husband.  My heart was broken ... this one was too close to home.  I can not imagine receiving such bad news but I have watched and prayed with hope as our dear friends walked with immense grace during this very scary time.  We are praying for a miracle!

January 6 ... MPM turned 40!  Wow that was a big one!!!  Time to change the wording in the header!  I celebrated with dear friends, loved ones and a weekend away to Serenbe with Lawyer.  It is by far my favorite place to get away with him!!  Who could ask for more???

January 29 ... My mother in law falls and hits her head needing quite a few stitches.  While she is at the hospital we discover she has a brain bleed that has been bleeding for about 6 weeks.  She is immediately transferred to ICU in another hospital and we begin a very long month.  We have become primary caregivers for his parents as my sister in law and her family deal with the news that her mother has 3+ months with her brain tumor. 

February 5 ... MIL has brain surgery

February 11 ... she is released from the hospital and we say goodbye to the ICU.  She moves into an acute  care rehab facility and we begin rehab to see if she will become strong enough to come home.  She is so weak physically and in spirit!

March 3 ... She is transferred to the hospital and ends up back in the ICU.  She is septic and so incredibly sick.  And this is where we currently stand. We (Lawyer has two brothers and his Dad is still with us) all take shifts, pray and wait ...

Please know I have missed blogging.  Please know I am so tired most days I can barely walk to the bed ... I usually crawl.  I am relying on my faith to carry me through most days.  But my spirit is strong and I am trusting in God with each and every step.

I promise to keep you posted ... I promise not to disappear again!

Pinky swear ... MPM
