The 25 pound bad year

Sunday, June 12, 2016

May 17, 2015 was the day my dad broke his back in a car wreck. His income stopped, unplanned early retirement, etc. My son's and I live with him and my Stepmom and were already helping out with her disability. So, I added caring for him. We thought, January 1, 2016 that last year was definitely out bad year and things would improve. Wrong. Fast forward a few days and my Stepmom gets 5 blood clots in her lungs, admitted for the pulmonary embolism, CT scan shows enlarged heart, she has had two massive heart attacks, she has open heart surgery and they find lung cancer. Now, this...is continuing our really bad year. After 13 days in ICU, she finally fights her way home. To a mountain of medical bills. So, May 18th, 2016, I truly prayed our bad year would really be over. This month, I've recommitted myself to SparkPeople and trying to lose the 25 pounds I gained since 5/2015. As of today, I'm 7.5 Pounds down! Yay!
