The month of blur

By |April 30th, 2019|Family|0 Comments

This past month has seriously been a blur. It’s been a little more than a month when I think about it. If you go back to October when I had my mini-stroke so that’s almost 2 months. Geez…

Biological father passed away on November 14th. Dusty and I had gotten up early that morning to […]

My husband took this picture of my biological father and I while I was talking to him, letting him know that I was there with him. The morning he passed away Dusty and I were getting ready to make the 2 hour (one-way) trip to see him. I was told he passed at 4:20 […]

Is this near the end?

I got a phone call from my bio father’s “girlfriend” just a bit ago. He has been in the hospital for several weeks now. It seems last night he took a turn for the worse. He stopped wanting to eat ~ even if being fed. They are considering a feeding tube. He spiked a […]

Snail’s pace

Grieving while being the mother and caregiver to someone with autism is hard as hell. Dusty watches me 24/7.

He sees me crying, mad, frustrated, etc I can’t escape. All the while trying to repair hurricane florence damage.

I have been going to my local massage envy every few weeks for a deep tissue […]

Dementia ~ The heartless bitch

Dementia is a heartless bitch… My biological father is being transferred to hospice. Stopped eating days ago. His decline has been rapid. I can’t express how painful this is to watch.

Is it for you?

By |April 22nd, 2019|Family|0 Comments

Is this how it is for you? Autism can be like a box of crayons, each one varying so differently but they have similarities. But isn’t that one beautiful box of crayons? Each one having it’s own characteristics. Each one shining in it’s own way in many different angles. But this is just the […]

Missing my momma

By |April 2nd, 2019|Family|3 Comments

I’m missing my momma so much. It is a pain unlike any other. To never hear her speak, her touch, her smile…

It came so suddenly and took her away so abruptly. No fighting chance to keep her here. All hope gone knowing we had to let her go and she just didn’t seem ready.

In […]

Special Cutie

By |March 20th, 2019|Family|0 Comments

As you know we are dog lovers.

I have always loved dogs. I’ve said if we won the lottery we’d buy some land and rescue dogs that needed to be rescued. No matter what – near or far…

Strolling through my Facebook timeline yesterday I ran across this cutie.

She reminds me of Chewy, not in looks, […]
