Not a good day…

Nothing really wrong on the pregnancy front… aside from my back, but that appears to be moot point about now. I’ve been feeling baby move all day. I think he can sense how badly I need it today.

Yesterday, my uncle passed away. Married to my mom’s oldest sister, Uncle Dick has been around since before I was born. He was very special to all of us. He always made us laugh… always. Family functions were always more fun when he was around. He was diagnosed with cancer quite some time ago, and shortly after we moved down to GA, we found out his cancer had come back. This time it spread to his brain and it became too much for his fragile body to handle.

I’m having a hard time with this today, because I can’t just up and go back to Ohio. With gas prices being what they are, and the fact that my transmission is shot in my van, there’s just no way to get back there. So, here I sit, wishing I could get back there just to give the family a hug.

If you think of it, could you please say a prayer for my family? Especially my Aunt Pam. I know she (and all of us) would covet your prayers right now. Thanks!

    So sorry to hear about your loss, sweetie! *hugs*

    My dad’s best friend, who was like a second dad to me my entire life, passed away last fall and I couldn’t make it back home for the funeral…and I felt terrible. Its hard.

    Wow, I wish I could bring you a basket of chocolates, bath products and fun mindless books to cheer you up and help you relax.

    *sending a virtual hug your way*
