“Everyone feels benevolent if nothing happens to be annoying him at the moment.” ― The Problem of Pain
Two of my adult children are experiencing serious and rare medical problems. I wish I could tell you what they are since it is quite self explanatory but I need to protect their privacy as well. It does involve neurological issues. The current issues does NOT include my daughter who had the brain tumor. This has caused my husband and I to wonder if we passed on some yucky genes.
In the meantime, I also take care of my mother who will turn 91 in January. Her needs are accelerating as well.
The last two weeks have been particularly difficult for me. Unfortunately my psoriatic arthritis has advanced somewhat which causes me pain from time to time. But it is manageable.
I would imagine that the next two months may be a bit hard as we pursue medical options. I’m helping my daughter’s wonderful husband get her to medical appointments, etc. Thankfully, we are a medical family and know how to work the system. We are also close as support and love one another. My daughter who had the brain tumor is getting ready to do a stint on the Mercy Ship in Senegal and wondered if she should cancel. We told her she must go.
The blog will continue as usual. In fact, it is my sane place even when I’m called a *daughter of Stan.* 😇 The kindness and concern most of you show towards victims as well as your support for me, is nothing short of incredible.
I write this in order to explain why I might be a bit distant on occasion. I will keep you updated.
