And Almost A Year Later

Wow! It’s been almost a year since I updated this blog. I think, and don’t by any means hold me to this, that I might want to possibly start blogging again.

Not a whole lot has gone on in the past year. My Granddaughter, Big Bird just turned a year old. We are blessed to have this little girl in our lives. I’m even more blessed to be the Grammy as I can send her home when I start to get annoyed with the crying, whining and dirty diapers. I know my mom was 40 when she had me, but I just could not do it at this age! The best part is my youngest daughter has decided that she does not want a kid. Now I’m sure that thought will change, but at 14 I’m happy she is on that page for now!

This past June I ended up in the Hospital for a month. To make a very long story short, I was stubborn. I ignored gall stone pain for weeks and it ended up blocking off my pancreas. Severe Acute Pancreatitis is not fun by any means. Gallbladder was removed and they had me on an IV drip for nourishment for 3 1/2 weeks to let my pancreas rest. The pancreas started digesting food again but the part that makes insulin did not recover. This has left me an insulin dependant diabetic. I have adapted an entire new healthy diet and I exercise 5 days a week. But on the bright side I lost 20 pounds in the hospital and I have since lost an additional 13lbs since July.

My oldest daughter, Big Bird’s mom, has been on a Roller Coaster ride for the past year. I believe she suffered from postpartum depression which was not treated. She basically went off the deep end and I don’t know why but her boyfriend stuck with her. At this point they are back in a relationship and I hope they make it work for Big Bird’s sake.

My youngest daughter has moved on from Catholic School and has joined the good old public school system. She has gone from a class of 12 into a class of over 600. So far in the 1 week that she has been there, she is doing great. Thanks to a few cute boys she has become active in our Church Youth Group.

I have been up to working and living life to the fullest! I am actually enjoying being single.  If I want to do something I do it and there is no one to answer to. Love it!

Here’s to hopefully more posts. But please don’t hold me to it!
