Quick Check in

Hi everyone,   just a quick check in since I was reading the blogs this morning.  I have been back and forth to my Dad's house  in West Virginia at what seems like a million times in the last weeks.  My mother had a complication last week because of the cancer in her liver - she got jaundice and has been in the hospital ther for the past week.  Back and forth I go.  Today they are letting her out but she is going to go into a rehab facility for a week or two to get a little therapy help in getting herself up out of bed and moving again.  I'm leaving this morning to help her check out from the hospital and move over to rehab.  I have to stay a few extra days to take my Dad for his cataract operation tomorrow and then my brothers and I are supposed to meet on Saturday with my Dad to figure out our plans for Mom.  It's hard being away from husband and boys so much - but they've been so great and supportive for me.  My dad is SO stressed out and all of us are getting stressed too.  The doctors say my mom has six months IF things go well.   
-I can't believe how hard it is to eat at my Dad's house during all this.  He eats the old unhealthy way, especially if you have to grab something and go!  I brought protein bites with me and almonds for a quick bite.  My weight seems to fluctuate from 159 to 161 but I'm happy with that during all this craziness. Trying to stay as healthy as I can during all this so I don't get myself sick.   I think the healthy foods I eat are helping.  I have been popping some Tylenol PM's at night off and on because I'm having trouble stopping my thoughts enough at night to be able to sleep well.  Hope that doesn't do me too much harm.
-I'm glad everyone seems to be getting back on track on the blogs.  It's been a weird couple of months for everyone it seems.  My thoughts and prayers are still going out to Rosalie for all she's had to endure lately.
I hope everyone has a good week!
