Things Could Be Worse!

After my treatment, I started feeling extremely nautious. I wondered if it was morning sickness or was it an effect from the medicine. I continously vommited throughout the day and night. On top of everything, I had to take JP in and they put him on antiobiotics for an ear and throat infection. I seriously thought to myself, “Could things get any worse?”.  This morning, I was still sick and couldn’t keep anything down. Now, I’m thinking it is a bug or something. Then, as I am trying to keep down my lunch I get a text message from my mom that my Grandma is out of surgery. The tumor grew and they have to postpone radiation and start chemotherapy right away to try to shrink the tumor. She also has an infection and the tumor is extremely close to her bladder. I called my mom to make sure she was o.k. When I got off the phone I sat back and thought to myself, “Kelli, things could be so worse than you vommiting and feeling sick”. I decided right then and there that I need to stop complaining about the little things that are wrong with me and JP and look at the bigger things, like my Grandma. I truly believe this woman is a fighter and she makes me want to be a stronger person. So my new goal in life is not to complain about not feeling well. I am going to instead remind myself that there are people out there that have it much worse!

  1. Kelli, I sure hope things get better. I’m sorry to hear that Grandma isn’t doing so well. I hope JP feels better soon. It is the worst when our babies are sick. Sounds like you have a lot going on right now. Take care of yourself and your baby boy.

  2. Aw. Man, I’m sorry to hear.. most especially about your Gram. You are right that we shouldn’t sweat the small stuff, and there are always others that have it worse than ourselves, but that doesn’t mean if you feel miserably sick you don’t have the right to feel miserable. Take care of yourself. I hope you feel better soon.. and wishes of good health to all your fam.

  3. I made this comment on one of your other slices, but it didn’t get posted….so I’ll say it again. YOU are the spitting image of your grandma. Positive. Strong belief in good things. Happy. Strong. I love your writing 🙂
