My prayers remain with you, mommasita. Grieve and heal in your own time, in your own way. We are all different, every way of grieving and healing is correct. :hug:'s

:hug: mommasita.

I am relieved to find these updates as you have been and continue to be on my mind. Love sent.

I am heartbroken to hear about your husband. Mourning differently is difficult but must be agonizing when you both are in constant pain missing your daughter.

Please know that you remain in our thoughts and prayers.

    Mommasita,

    I'm so sorry for your families loss. I could not imagine the pain you are going through.

    I wanted to post earlier but had misplaced my password.

    Everyone has their own way to work through the pain and loss. Hopefully your trip to Florida helped to ease things a little.

    Once again, Many Thanks to all.

    I have started my progressive return to work. It’s 1/2 day per week for 2 weeks, then 2 halves for 2 weeks etc. On the 9th week, I am “ supposed” to be back at my full time status.

    I did my 1/2 day last Wednesday, came home and haven’t felt that exhausted in forever, it took me days to recover, so I hope this one goes better. Mind you I work emergency response, and we had horrific weather conditions, so this didn’t help.

    I’m fortunate that my work, and most especially my boss is fabulous, no pressure, and I can do my hours when I choose. That is helping a bit. Just walking in was hard, and I haven’t been to the kitchen (where I was when I got the news), but I can’t escape it forever.

    Now once I finally regain what I’ve lost there, and it’s a lot believe me, I think I have the week of vacation of dec 2017 that I never took , all of last years vacation to take , and then schedule this years, so I should have some nice time off.

    Just wanted to update and say another MERCI!

    Thank you everyone. I would not want anyone to ever feel anything close to this.

    I am working full time. Life is more than difficult, but it can never be reversed. We continue we walk the path. I live with a mask on.

    My best friend, my biggest rock, lost her house in a mudslide in April, heartbreaking, and so we have tried to do anything we can for them.
    My husband bought me a trip for my 50th bday, and paid for her too. We are going to Las Vegas in August. She is beyond excited. It will do us both good.

    Once again, thank you.
