I have now lost a total of 15 lbs from the start of my elimination diet. So much of it lost at the beginning but very slowly after as I was testing foods and would have 'off' days etc. I feel like my body has done lots of healing over this last couple months. Total wt from when I began last summer in 2012 is 28 lbs. I feel so much better these days.
I am missing my sweet boy so much. He has been gone 10 months now as of the 2nd of November. It is still hard for me to wrap my brain around it. Imagine how much of the 'things' around you, are connected to your child. If I take a bath, I know that he bathed here. If I use soap, I know that I still have the leftover part of a natural bar of soap that he used. I don't want to throw it out! His toothbrush is still in our drawer. How can I ever take that out? Oh, how my heart longs for him, to hold and squeeze him. Oh, how I need to get around others that have been through this, it's been awhile, time to regroup.
We lost our Hospice counselor whom knew us so well. We found another one that is a Christian and we really like him but this one isn't free if you know what I mean. It is good to meet with him, we need it and have noticed that we hadn't for a while.
I went out and had some fun trying to take pics of the kiddos myself for this school year. I think it went quite well.
Here is our precious boy in 2011, getting family pics before he heads in for his transplant. So strong a memory in my mind.
Just he and mom and dad.
Here he is just foolin' around. Man I miss him.
He is the last, or third boy.
My last child, darling girl.
My oldest son has moved out so we don't get to take many pics like this any more. Someday I hope to be able to get some again.
