Clever Title not found here...lol


Wow here we are at the middle of the month ALREADY! Wow this month is just flying by! I appear to be having a bit of writers block when it comes to my blog. Well maybe not writers block per say since I clearly have no problem rambling on, however I have a bit of content block. So I just thought I would give a little update on my life at the moment.
 Lol
  My parents finally got possession of their new condo on the 8th. It has been a long process that started back on Dec 26th2012 when they first took a look at the open house. The sold their home in August and had to be out by the end of September, however at that point they hadn’t really started building it yet! So my parents moved in with us from the end of September until Friday January 11th which just happens to be one month after my dad was diagnosed with cancer. Nonetheless on Friday they were finally able to spend the 1st night in their new home! It’s a lovely house style condo with an upstairs and I just know that they will have many happy memories in their new home! It has been a fun 3 months and both Mr. Pickles and I will miss them, however now they are just 15mins away instead of 45min so they are not that far away which is nice!

It has been a blessing having them here especially since now with cancer in our lives every extra day spent with my dad is a good one. I have some good news and bad news to report on my dad. As I have said before he is only 58 and was diagnosed with esophageal cancer on Dec 11th. The spot on his liver was also cancer which means that he has advanced stage IV Esophageal cancer. The doctor said he should have 2 years, but God willing there are many many more years ahead. On the 10th he got some good news as the PET scan showed that the cancer was only in those two areas and nowhere else. I thank God for that news. Thank you to everyone that has been praying for him and for our family during this time.

I know this perhaps is not the best forum to be talking about such things, but for the most part I am just trying not to think about it and burring it deep down inside. I am an only child so I have to be the strong one and since I don’t have a sibling to turn to for strength this helps me. You know as the saying goes better out than in. That can be applied to emotions too, right?

So there you go that is what is on my mind and guess what as I was writing that other ideas popped right into my head...content block cleared!!
Have a great day

  2. Yay you got your house back :)
    I'm so sorry to hear you're Dad's at stage 4. I hope the treatment can give you more than two years. But if it's just thw two, I hope they're good ones.
    You shouldn't feel like there are areas of your life and subjects that don't belong here. To me, blogging is all about sharing snapshots of one's life. And I like to read about the good, the bad and the ugly that goes on in my blogging friends lives just as much as I like seeing pretty pics of things made/grown and read funny stories of the odd thing that happened the other day or the stupid thing someone did. I like to think that blogging is really just like a group of friends sitting down having a conversation, that's a little delayed from one response to the next. And we're here to help you when things get tough as well as celebrate the wins.
    So if you ever find that you just have to scream, and here is the only place you can. Let 'er rip. better out than in. Cancer sucks. Both the fight and the aftermath. If any of us here can help so that it sucks just that little bit less... Well, that's what blogging is really all about.

  3. At least you will have time to spend near your dad for the remaining time he has. I found out my dad had cancer about three years ago. It is a very rare cancer without much treatment. But then again it is a very slow moving cancer so they say he has just as much of a chance of dying from it as dying with it. Right now he is 77.

  4. I'm glad they are so close to you. I agree with the others. It's your blog, to write about whatever you want, especially if it gives you a place to process all of your thoughts. Your Dad and your family will be in my prayers!

  7. I'm sorry to hear what has been going on, but the diagnosis of only 2 spots seems promising. I will continue to keep you and your family in my prayers.
