Can't Catch A Break

my poor mom, can't catch a friggin break. She is back in the hospital after having a very bad scare a few weeks ago. For those of you who are new to the blog, my mom is battling stage IV melanoma. She is participating in a drug trial that has had some amazing results. I couldn't be happier about how well that treatment is working.

Unfortunately, it is a chemo treatment and has weakened her immune system. She is in the hospital with shingles and will probably be there about a week if everything goes well. Hopefully she will be home in time for Easter dinner and if we're lucky maybe she will be home for Good Friday for our traditional shrimp dinner with the whole family.

Here is a picture of me, my mom, and my dad taken a couple of weeks ago when we were on vacation in Florida. This was taken on the Characters In Flight balloon ride at Downtown Disney.

Please say a prayer for my mom.


  1. Are you serious? She looks great :( You guys just went to Disney. This is so unfair, I will totally keep you guys in my thoughts. We rushed my dad to the hospital tonight. He has a blockage in his intestines and was vomiting. I am worried sick and can't tell my family or anyone. He has asked I not say anything in the event that he's fine in the AM. I know how it feels to worry about a parent. Hugs and I hope we're both smiling and celebrating Easter with our loved ones who are illin' :(

  2. bless your heart. i will definitely be saying a prayer for your mom tonight. just remember to enjoy the small things as you all get through this tough time.

  3. I am so sorry to hear, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  4. I will be praying for your mom. Love the photo!
