Family Update

Update on my cousins. My cousin Connie is still struggling for her life. She hasn't improved at all. The doctors have her in an induced coma. My other cousin Brian is worse. The doctors found that he has a perforated colon. He has had two emergency surgeries to date. Survival is questionable at this point for either of them. I found out that my Aunt Dorothy of the same family has been diagnosed with lung cancer and won't be with us much longer. You know what? When it rains it pours!! It's difficult to be in the Christmas spirit right now.
If that's not enough my dad is slipping further away from us. I know that all my life I've been taught that we're only given what we can handle in life. I have a tendency not to believe that at this point and time.
I think all the stress has caught up with me finally. I've been struggling physically and emotionally the past three days. I'm determined to snap out of it so I can be there for the rest of the family. I want to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers. It means a great deal to me and the family. Your support means the world to me. THANK YOU!!!! I don't know what I would do w/o my Grobinite family.

I heard a saying yesterday that rings true. Life is free and time is a thief.

To all my Grobanite family thank you and have a wonderful night.

Grobie hugs,
Shirley
