I want to take a moment and thank each of you for your supportive comments. Today has been difficult. I stop to think and start crying. I remember the good times but keep going back to our final conversation. Such trivial things and suddenly she had to go because the tech came for her and I didn't even get a chance to say I love you like I always do. I know she knew it, but why this time didn't I express it.
Even when we are down, life continues on. We have obligations, appointments have been set and even if we aren't in the mood we have to do what we must. I had set up and appointment at the groomer for Abbie for today so that had to be done. I think even Abbie felt my mood because the groomer said she fought her today when she was doing her face and she has not done that before.
We had plans to go out to dinner tonite with friends (4 other couples) so decided to go in hopes it would lift my mood and I was glad we went as it has helped. They were very supportive but got my mind off of things too. I thought about ordering prime rib, but caught myself and had the chicken breast.
I got my lab results this afternoon and my triglycerides are up again. I have been eating no meat 1-2 days a week, doing my daily exercise, eating more fruits and veggies and still a problem. I go to the dr on Tues so we will be trying to figure out what next.
Again, thank you My Wonderful, Supportive Spark Friends. You are my earthly guardian angels.

    Hi Pat, I just read this today (9/6) and want to add my 2 cents worth. As I mentioned on a sticky thread, I am so sorry your cousin died, but I rejoice that you had such a good relationship with her. I know that God is the source of all comfort, and that He will comfort you. It won't always be a breeze, but you are obviously a strong woman, and as a child of God, you couldn't have a better being in your corner.

    About your triglycerides, I hope they go down to a good range soon. Early this year my cholesterol and tri's suddenly skyrocketed....after I had been exercising regularly and eating more veggies/fruit, smaller amounts of meats....doing healthier for me things. No reason why, just happened. My dr put me on a statin, and everything now is in great ranges. It also happened to another woman I know, when she was about my age. So, it can happen. Hang in there, you will not only survive, but thrive.

    So sorry for your loss. I know that you will be grieving for a while, but I know that all the happy memories are there, waiting for you. It's wonderful that you had a great relationship - it just makes the parting so difficult.

    None of my cousins have contact with me. One contacted my sister and wanted me to write to him, but my Mom didn't want me to and I obeyed her. It is sad, we had so much fun when we were younger. Our parents had quarrels, but we got along.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I take comfort in these verses: Ecclesiastes 3:1, 2 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
    A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted

    Hugs and prayers.

    Take your time and grieve your loss. Life does go on but you need to take care of yourself, too. Laugh and cry and remember all the good times you had. HUGS!
