My life changed dramatically and forever when I lost TJ.

I welcome you to follow along as I adjust to my "new normal".

It is not all puppies and ice cream but it is my life....real and honest.

Mom Update

Mom has taken a turn for the worse. Her condition has deteriorated and she is unable to breathe on her own. The doctor told me our options are either life support or hospice. Mom never wanted life support so hospice it is. My sister and brother are flying to Arizona Saturday (tomorrow) and we will be moving Mom to hospice. Hospice tells me that even though we are pushing oxygen into her the body is not using or distributing it properly. She is expected to last only a few days once moved to hospice.
Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers.


  1. Hey! Sorry, I've been away for awhile. Read your last few posts. Am sorry to read of your pain...Dobie, obviously TJ, & now mom. The friends post was touching. You owe no explanations. You are a beautiful thoughtful person who has been thru hell. I don't think that you and I when together have ever had preconceived anything! We, I think, are kindred spirits. I love ya. I won't wish you better days. I promise them for you. They will come. I promise because you deserve them as much as anyone I've ever known. Wish I could be there! Find a way to smile each day if only for a moment...think dirty thoughts if that's what it takes! Hell, just remember the dumb shit I've done over the years. Keep in touch...hugs TD

  2. Loving you. I've got you through this. These are some times my love. These are some times.

    I'm here - experiencing you in all your moments. My phone is on. My ear is on. My heart is on for you. Now and next week, next month, and in three years from now.

    I love you.

  3. My dear Sandy. I'm so sorry to read this. My thoughts are with you and your family. Love to you xx

  4. Sandy, I am so sorry that you're Mom is sick. I didn't know when I saw you. Brings everything into perspective when I read you're blog. My stupid computer problems and dealing with stupid people seem so trivial. I keep you in my thoughts and prayers. You ARE stronger than you are feeling right now. Take care girlfriend. Love ya. Georgi
