move on please
I was mad today at a few FB posts and e-mails I got. I am moving on and I think others need to too. I had one e-mail about who came to the funeral ??? That was in July and I am done taking about it LOL. I had someone pray for me because I asked if anyone knew a good realtor !!! People please move on and let me have a normal life. I can be in a bad mood and it may not have anything to do with Jerry's death! I can also have a good time if I want. Yes I think about him but I am not sitting around crying all the time. Move along everyone. I am not a little kid. I know what is best  for m

Holidays
So the Holiday season is here and I hate it. Jerry loved Thanksgiving because he loved to EAT LOL. So I spent that alone with a good book. I just can't take all the BS that goes with the Holidays. Jerry and I didn't have a good time last year (plus many others) so I am not even going to try this year. The good news is his VA stone has come and so has the Picture for the big stone. The bad news is the Large stone is still on order. The VA goes on the back and then our picture dates etc. on the other side. They said 4-6 mos so it maybe spring. I am sick of telling everyone I am OK because I am n

Gerald's Headstone
Good thing I checked on Gerald's headstone as it seems the VA lost the order. That's the VA for you LOL anyway good thing I checked. Them messing up did give me time to think about it and see how my money is going so now my plan is to get a reg. stone with our picture and have the VA marker on the back. Gerald wanted a VA stone so he will have that. I want one with our picture so we will both get our way now. Maybe it was a good thing the VA lost the order so I had time to think. Other then that life is so so. I miss him and I have good days and bad. I have joined two women groups, DAR,( Rev w

Not Sorry
I will never be sorry that I took care of Jerry the last 5 years. I love him and would do it again. It is just in the begining I don't think we really believed that treatment was just going to pro-long his life and not save him! Then once we knew I just could not let go. I could not let him stop treatment. Some of the last 5 years I would never give up but other times....... When your sick the last thing you want to do is spend all your time waiting in a Dr. office and that is what we did. He had a Dr for each part of his body and each one wanted there own labs , test etc. That is nuts! G

Funeral

So the Funeral was nice. Lots came. Some that I knew would come and some that surpised me. There are a few that also surpised me when they didn't come. But I guess that is how it always is. Right now I just feel lost. He was my best Friend for 35 years and I miss him. He could not do much in the end but he was there just to ask about things. I miss that. People are asking me to go here and there to lunch etc but I am not in the mood yet. I need time to recover from not just the Funeral but also the stress of 5 years of caring for someone with cancer. After living the last 5 years like we did I

Barns
Jerry was taken to the ER in Herrin on Monday and they in turn sent him to Barns in St Louis. He went for PT and just could not get any air to do it so Sarah took him to the ER. At Barns they did a Bronchoscopy on Tuesday morning to again clean the tumor out of his airway. I think this in the 5th time. His DR here keeps saying to only get it done like 2 times a year but the DR at Barns wants to do it every few months so we will be seeing him Aug 16th to see if he needs it again. They wanted to keep him at Barns so they could get a DR to look at the tumor on his leg BUT Jerry wanted to go home

Hemoglobins
Jerry is in the Hospital again this time in Herrin. His Hemoglobins have been down so he needed an Blood Transfusion. He needed it right away so I took him to the ER BUT then it took them over 24 hours to get it started LOL. . Hemoglobins make air go around your body and he was passing out etc. but the ER Dr never thinks you know anything LOL. So they had to X-ray him , do 3 sets of labs etc. before they started the Blood LOL. Does anyone have a Doctor that sees you in the Hos. anymore ? Seems like they have a set for the office and a set for the Hospital LOL Bad thing is they don't
