Living On Oxygen for Life
For those of you who follow me on my Living On O2 for Life Facebook page, you know what has happened over the past two weeks in my life, K’s and K’s family’s lives. K’s father lost his long, hard-fought battle with pancreatic cancer and passed away on February 22, at 6:30am.
Even though his passing was expected, it is something of an experience that I would never wish on anyone. I want to thank everyone who has emailed me or left a comment on Facebook concerning thoughts and prayers for K & his family. They are truly, TRULY appreciated. I am just now starting to get back to where I feel like being the me you know and hopeful love to hear from. Let’s just say that this was a huge emotional learning experience for me. It made me think of or become aware of the “End of Life” situations that I have of yet realized until now.
I write this to you knowing that this whole sad experience is NOT about me. It’s all about K and his family. My older sister was a HUGE help to his family and to K. She came down and cooked up so much food that they didn’t even need to cook at all. She helped K’s mom in so many ways. I feel so blessed for my wonderful family who just basically dropped everything, rearranged their work schedules within moments notice to come down to help or just be here for us.
I just wanted to thank everyone for the thoughtfulness that they’ve shown. *HUGE HUG*
