I want to thank you all for your prayers and well wishes in my time of need. Today marks the one month anniversary of my brothers death.
The last week or so has been kinda rough. The realization that he is gone has sunk in. I miss him so much but I know that his suffering has come to pass. He will not have to die a slow death due to cancer treatments.
You all have been so kind, even offering you phone number for me to call if I wanted to talk. I appreciate that.
My nephew is recovering but still in a lot of pain. He is very weak, I guess because he can't move around a whole lot. He is on a walker for the time being.
His girlfriend is doing pretty good considering she has gone through three reconstuctive surgeries on her face and head. Part of her left thumb was amputated. But she is a very possitive person and I see her doing well with all of this.
I heard today that they got married. Not sure yet. I was amazed in a way because she is twenty years older than he is. I know she loves him. I'm wondering if they are trying to console one another over my brothers death.
My new companion is Jake. He is a Pit Bull. He is my nephews dog but my brother had been taking care of him. He makes me so happy just seeing his excitement when I get home. He makes me smile...
Thank you all again for being my family. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Special note to Dave: Thank you, Thank you. You are so kind and I wish you well. Your story touched my heart and I'm sorry that I haven't been able to express that before now. You are so very blessed to have the support that you do within your wife and your family. Take care.
