One of my sis's -- the younger one, cannot be here this weekend. She is very ill, and struggles everyday with her diabetes, her back and spine problems like mine, and other issues, directly related to the ones mentioned. Every day is hard for her, and every day..she suffers. Because of these things, she just cannot be here this weekend, and that makes me very sad. I worry every day that I will lose her early. Type one diabetes is a deadly disease, and though she does everything in her power to regulate it, it just can't be done. I witnessed an episode that scared the bejesus right out of me the last time she was here, and had her awesome husband Rob not been here, I can't say what would have happened. To be honest, I was worried about her being here without him, and he gave me instructions on what to do if she was not able to wake up at some point. Her blood sugar was deathly low at that time, and frankly --- I wouldn't screw with it, I would just call 911. There is no way I am going to be responsible for that...I don't know what she ever did to deserve her husband, but I am telling you, that guy is an angel in disguise. I am so grateful to him each and every day for loving her and taking care of her. And I am sad that she will not be here, but I certainly understand. I will just have to travel that direction very soon, to see her at home.
So, that leaves me and my older sis - Trav. And I have no doubt that we will have an awesome time. She is a crack-up and alot of fun. So, it's all good. And, she will be here tonight..instead of tomorrow, so even better!
Happy weekend, everyone. Today is my Friday, so I refuse to even think that this is a Sucky Thursday.
I'm gone. :)
