Gotta start moving to something healthy!!!
The past several years have been extremely difficult for me, and I find myself back at the beginning of the journey, so am hoping some of you are ready to walk through it with me. I can't even tell you how much weight I have gained because I thr... Read more
Moving forward sometimes stinks!
Reality check for me...the injuries I have had, along with Don's death have totally derailed me - I am heavier than I have been in years, and not being able to do much for a while have contributed to where I am...
Step one is done - get a g... Read more
Great summer....end isn't gonna be to much fun.
So we made it through the summer in a pretty great fashion...kidlets have thrived.
After Don passed, we just kind of made it to the end of the school year. Can't even believe that the kidlets got straight "A"s given all that was going on. ... Read more
I have learned a lot about myself in the past few weeks....
1. My kidlets are my world...I would do anything to keep them safe, and give them a place to grieve and vent.
2. When my body says to sleep, it means it...shutting down allo... Read more

Don passed away early this morning, he had been in so much pain the previous 3 days, and they managed to make him comfortable at the end. We are incredibly thankful for the staff at KGH, and also to all my friends here.
It was amazing to m... Read more
Don is a little more alert today than he has been over the past days. His blood sugars were over the top, but are coming down slowly. He has virtually no platelets, and they determined he has a super bug, so is getting a Buttload of antibiotic... Read more

I brought Don home from the hospital today...he managed to get to our ringette teams end of season party for a wee bit. He is really weak though.
It is way harder having Don home than I imagined. He is always sitting wi... Read more
Don only has enough energy to get to the bathroom from bed and back right now. He breathes heavy when he does that. We still don't know if it is the cancer or the pnemonia that is doing the damage. I pulled the kidlets out before they saw mos... Read more
Ok, so we saw the oncologist in Kelowna.
Don is going to get a 3 drug chemo treatment for 3 cycles (like about 3 months), then radiation to the mass to hopefully make it go away.
If that doesn't completely deal with it, he will be gett... Read more
Keep on Keepin on:)
We are not getting a lot of info....so far we know the tumour is about 1/2 the size of the last one. It is lymphoblastic lymphoma, and Don is going to have a minimum of 3 cycles of chemo and pin-point radiation. He has been feeling not too bad... Read more
