Just two days after my last blog Ms. Gene passed away during the night. I was with her, along with her daughter-in-law, and count that as a blessing although it was tough coming so soon after my hubby's death. Watching two loved ones die from cancer within the same month is heartbreaking.
But I'm feeling a little stronger every day, and actually had a couple of nights when I slept well. I have a history of depression and had a really terrible time after my son died some years ago, so I'm trying to monitor how I feel so that I can get help if needed. (I gained 50 lbs during the year following his death!) I absolutely hated being on antidepressants and don't want to go there again if it can be avoided. I have learned that exercise helps more than anything else, and since the weather is cooler I've been spending more time outside. Since I live in the country there is plenty to do here!
So, the plan for today: lots of fruits and vegetables, lots of water, and work in the yard.
