More bullets

Once again, my vow to become a better blogger has failed. This time I at least had some good reasons. And so once again, the last few weeks in bullets

– A few days after my last post, Mr H’s soon to be 99 year old nana fell and broke her hip. Nana is an amazing woman. She was still living on her own, doing her own cooking, cleaning, and shopping until August. In August she got what her doctor called “the worst case of ge.nital h.erpes” he had ever seen. Mr H and his mom where mortified but I so hope to be 98 years old and getting STD’s. Anywho, after that they moved her up to NY into assisted living. When she broke her hip, the doc said she had the body of a 70 year old. They did a hip replacement surgery on her and she’s now in rehab. Imagine an extremely stubborn person who had been doing everything a certain way for the last 99 years now re-learning how to walk, sit, put her shoes on, etc. It is not going well.

– About 2 days after Nana’s hip surgery, Mr H’s step dad found out he needs to heart valves replaced. This is open heart surgery. At this point it becomes somewhat comical as he has diagnosed, but untreated, OCD and anxiety induced hypochondria. Cutting someone like that’s chest open and cracking his ribs….definitely worst nightmare. My poor MIL has started taking meditation classes

– About 2 days after we found out he needed heart surgery, my mom had another breast cancer scare. She was sent for round after round of mammograms and ultrasounds and ultimately told to come back for follow up in 3 months. This has happened before but it doesn’t get any less scary, especially because my aunt (her sister) has been fighting breast cancer for the last 6 years.

So this is why (along with two trips to NY, one to FL and a drama filled visit from my dad) I fell back off the blogging wagon, my apologies…

more to come soon (I promise) on my working mom guilt and how IF is still coloring so much…
