i’ve come to realize that 2011- now has been the worst year of my life.
my grandmother was sick with ovarian cancer. was diagnosed in 2009. that was difficult but wasn’t too horrible since it was years ago.
in april of 2011 my dad was diagnosed with throat cancer from smoking. he has a tracheotomy. which is the hole in his throat to help him breath. if he didn’t have that he would have died. the only good thing is that now they are talking about having it removed. I couldn’t be happier. when he was diagnosed he was in an out of the hospital alot. his first stay was a month long. it was probably the hardest thing in the world to be honest. but as of right now he’s doing okay.
august/september 2011 we got an eviction notice for our house. we were being evicted since we had no money to pay the mortgage. my dad couldn’t work and hasn’t been for three years for other reasons besides the cancer. so in october we moved from the house i lived in for twenty years to my grandmothers house. things settled down until around christmas.
around christmas of 2011 my grandmother the one with cancer was getting weaker and they took her off chemo cause she was too week for it. she kept getting weaker and weaker and before we know it she was sleeping about 22hours a day. it was hard to see her like that since she was the one person I looked up to the most. on january 23rd I was out with my boyfriend when I got a text from my sister telling me to get home that grandma was going. I got home as fast as I could but I was five minutes too late. she was pronounced dead at 10:02 pm I got home around 10:07. it was difficult because I was pretty close to her. but she was 80 yrs old and saw her two children from up and get married and saw her two granddaughters grow up. im still upset about it but I know she lived a great life and couldn’t be happier.
wow thats pretty long. just had to discuss all that.
