Well today is my blogoversary! 2 years I've been posting, although I've been much better at posting then I have lately.

Madison and I are in Portland now. It's actually been hard so far. My sister in law Rena is not doing well at all and the doctors decided today that she is not responding to any treatment so her care has been changed to comfort care. The doctors really say it is hard to say how long till the end it just depends really on her. It could be within days or a couple of weeks at the most. She told her dad though last night that she was ready to go and didn't want to fight anymore. It is just so hard to see her though. She just doesn't look like herself at all. Kelly is still here also but will have to go back home to Alaska this weekend whatever happens. He needs to get back to work partially even for himself. He doesn't do well not working. We haven't taken Madison to the hospital and don't plan to. She has memories of her aunt healthy and looking great and I want her to remember that, not what she looks like now.

The flight here was good though on Friday. I hate flying, it just scares me for some reason. Madison loved it though she had a great time and talked a lot.

Of course with the way things are going right now I really miss home and my peaceful views. I really forgot just how busy and noisy the city was.

Friday though starts the Rose Festival here though and they will have fireworks and then a parade on Saturday so maybe once we can get doing something like that it will pull me out of the mood I'm in at the moment.

10 people had something to say:
