Thought that I would pop in for a few minutes. The last 6 weeks have been really tense for most of my family.
One of our good friends succumbed to a 5 year battle with breast cancer.
She passed away with grace and dignity amongst family and friends. It just sometimes seems so unfair how angels are chosen. She leaves behind 3 children. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, loves leaves a memory that no one can steal.
My fil is back into the hospital (I actually took him to the emergency on Thursday). Fluid is backing up from his liver and it became infected.
He is a pretty sick man, but doing better than expected. He is sharp as a tack, but doesn't have the physical ability that he had 2 years ago. Leo's Mom is having a very difficult time accepting this, and it sure can be hard to witness at times. We are trying to get a nurse to come in 1-2 a week to lend a hand, but MIL keeps botching that one up. A social worker called to speak with her, and atlast finally someone outside of the family besides myself has stated that she is in denial!
He can still walk, drive a car and do some light things, but no where what he was once.
My father is still kicking it and soon to be 93. He is still a stubborn old coot, but doing his best. We are finally coming to a draw that he will place his house for sale and move in with my brother and his wife. I think it will be best. He is having a very difficult time walking, and sanitation is not that great these days with him. if
you know what I mean.
Lesse.. another hit.. my sisters ex-husband whom is the father to my niece and nephew entered the hospital yesterday with yellow eyes, swollen abdomen and vomiting severely. His kidneys are not functioning well and his liver is damaged. Apparently he is hiding a severe drinking habit. It's really sad, and I am so sick of watching people live such unstable and unhealthy lives. FUDGE.
On a good note.. Leo, I and the boys are doing well. We have no complaints and are working hard. Hopefully it will settle down so I can spend more time on here. We are looking at investing into a 50 unit apartment complex. Not sure if
I am emotionally up to this, but we'll see.
I will post some pictures in a few hours. Marco started soccer and he is funny. Damiano is still be a pain at potty training, but I'm sure trying.
That is about it for now! The boys are almost up, and I want to read updates on all of you.
