My Mommy

My mommy died today. I am broken.

Turned on the radio just in time to hear what I needed to hear. As usual.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

New International Version (NIV)
Believers Who Have Died

13 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.

Mom is alive in Christ. Someday I will be with her again. It’s just going to be very hard until then.

Another week in review… is this getting lame?

Visited Mom at rehab. The amount of progress she’s made this week is amazing. It was so nice to see her sitting in the chair in real clothes! She will probably be going home mid-week this week.

Took a sick day this last week, I need to start feeling better soon. I will probably have to speak with my doctor again about my meds since I’m still not functioning as well as I was before. Though I did find a vitamin that suits my needs that does not contain iron. I’m convinced that iron is evil, since it makes me feel like crap when I take it.

I had Chinese food from my favorite place this weekend (Happy China). That makes me happy. I had General Tso’s chicken and crab rangoon. Yumm.

I also purchased a discounted Acer laptop to serve as an interim computer until I can be happy with a new HP purchase. Also, it will give me some time to perhaps get over my Intel related prejudices.

In closing, here’s a link to a horrible person’s email. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say: who the hell needs friends like that? What a bitch.

Vow Renewal, surgery, week in review

It’s been an insanely busy week. On Monday, Mom had a total knee replacement on her left knee. It’s been hard for everyone. She’s in a lot of pain, but it’s getting better. It’s hard to see Mom that way.

Yesterday, we went to see Paul’s cousins renew their wedding vows. Long drive, family things, then long drive. I’m exhausted, but I haven’t had any time for sleep. Either way, here’s a couple pics:
