Sorry, I haven’t posted.. Let me fill you in


Hi Readers,

I’m sorry my posts seem to come in bursts. Hopefully, that will change soon with all the talk about getting a guide dog. I wanted to explain my recent time away from my blog. The first week of November my Dad got really sick and was diagnosed with advanced stage cancer. Over the next two months, he went through many surgeries, was in the hospital most of the time, we almost lost him a few times, had a lot of heartaches and scares, and we were also told his cancer was inoperable. We thought we had about a year with my Daddy but on January 2nd, he passed away. My Dad was my best friend AND my father, and he was the best at both of these two jobs. I miss him dearly.. he was so supportive of me with my RP. He did go through the grieving process and did not always understand how limited my vision is, but that’s expected. He was always there to help, whatever I needed, when I needed, and I miss him like crazy. Things are pretty hectic nowadays but we’re making it work.

Miss you like crazy Daddy, I know you’re watching me from up there.

    1. Aw, thank you so much for your sweet remark. I don’t really consider myself to be an inspiration though because I’m just living my life, doing what I have to do with the cards I have been dealt. 🙂
