This is MY journey with MS! I give you my thoughts, feelings, hopes, and prayers. My wish that one day this disease will come to an end. That one day there will be a cure. For now, I hold on to possibility. I HOPE this will help and inspire not only myself but others.

Happy Mothers Day! (tomorrow)

Happy Mothers Day!
Okay, so I know it is not actually mothers day until tomorrow, but this is one day worth celebrating all weekend, and this year that is kind of what will be happening in my family.

My grandma, who has been staying with my parents for the last couple of months (trying to recover from her surgery and the death of my grandpa) is going back home to Arizona tomorrow. :( She feels it is time for her to go home. I know that she is nervous to be back at home, and all alone, but my parents made it very clear to her that when she got to a point where she does not feel she can be on her own anymore, when things get too hard......she is always welcome to move in with them. My grandma does pretty well on her own, she is a tough ol' bird, but she is more weak now since her surgery and my grandparents were together (24/7 type of together) for about 20 years (this was my step-grandpa, my biological grandpa died when I was 6, she remarried after, at an age where both of them were retired). I can't imagine how difficult that must be.

So, needless to say, we are celebrating Mothers Day today! The day is starting off this morning with a breakfast at the park sponsored by the Benton Co. Sheriffs Department where all of the proceeds will go to the Sexual Assault Response Center (SARC) & Safe Harbor. Next, my dad is taking Nathan and Katie to run some errands while I go do my shopping. I think the alignment is off on my car, so I need to drop it off at Les Schwab for a re-alignment. While we are off doing our errands my mom and grandma are going to get their hair done! Later we will all meet back up at my parents house where we will have a nice dinner in honor of Mother's Day. Plus, it gives us all one last night together with my grandma!

My grandma and dad will leave for Arizona around 6 am tomorrow, which leaves my mom home alone for Mothers Day. Nathan and I are going out to breakfast in the morning with my mom and then we will spend the day with her. I know it will be a very emotional day for her as she is quite worried about her mother. I figure if we can keep her busy then that would be the best medicine :) Maybe we will go out to a movie or something, I am not even sure what is out right now....I should check into that!

And, at the end of the day......I get to return home to take my Avonex injection.....Ugh! One of these days it will get better, right? (the injection that is)

So, for all of the mom's out there who read this....I wish you a very Happy Mother's Day! I hope you have a nice weekend and that your family and friends spoil you like crazy. You know you deserve it.

And, everyone else......go do something good for your mom and have a great weekend. I hope you are well. Take care.
