I feel so much relief today!! I took Nana back to the doctor last night because she's been complaining of a belly ache for over a month and it has made her feel awful. She visited our local hospital twice and they didn't find anything or even focus on her complaints. I took her to Bryson City and thankfully the doctor was able to find out what is wrong with her. We found out that she has a bacteria in her stomach called H. Pylori. Both of us were relieved but now it has to be treated. This bacteria will never really go away and can act up at anytime. So she's on 3 antibiotics and was given a GI cocktail that she can drink when needed for pain or discomfort. She has to cut down on her coffee which is going to be really hard because she loves her coffee. Now I am hoping this is the answer to our prayers and that she'll somewhat get back to her old self. I am so relieved and happy.
On the other hand, your pop is having a hard time. I think his emotions are running very high right now. He fears that he's going to lose his wife before he's ready and he's missing you. He's just now breaking down and questioning why you had to die. My dad holds everything in (I'm just like him) but when he breaks you better be prepared. He's had a few times here lately where he's been crying and often feels lonely. He doesn't understand why his family doesn't come around. Me, Nana, your big & little sister are all that he has and I think that's starting to scare him. I feel bad for my dad. He doesn't have any contact with the brother and sister that are still living and the only time select family comes to see him is when they money and I know sucks. But he knows that we love him and that's all counts. I pray that God comes into his life and can give him some comfort. That's all I can do.
Continue to watch over Nan and Pops. They love and you miss too!!
You are my Sunshine
