The reason I haven’t posted since March…

Hello there Beauties & Gents!
So I’ve been getting asked a lot lately why I even have a Blog or consider myself a Blogger since I haven’t posted since March.
Well I’ve been dealing with a very hard time, (if you follow me on Instagram you probably know why) Since February I was the Sole Care Giver to my Grandparents, Meme & Pop. I was there 5 days a week cleaning and cooking and working myself to the bone.
In June my Pop went to the Dr’s and they put him on Oxygen full time because he was having trouble breathing. A few days later they admitted him to the Hospital with double pneumonia and we thought the worst was over, a week and a half into being in the hospital they suspected he had Lung Cancer because his lungs kept filling up with Fluid. They did a biopsy of the fluid and found out it was Stage 4 Aggressive Lung Cancer, he came home still on Oxygen and with a drain in his lung and soon we called in Hospice and nurses to stay over night because he was getting worse. I was over there 5 sometimes 6 days a week still taking care of them.
In early August he seemed to be getting worse losing the use of daily functions he once had control over and I was officially not allowed by my family to be there alone.
By late August he lost his ability to swallow whole foods and just ate soup and things that were mushy, knowing things were going down quick was killing me inside because my Pop was my first dad.
On September 3rd things took a turn for the worse, he couldn’t get out of bed, he couldn’t swallow, he couldn’t breathe on Oxygen and he couldn’t speak. We called in a Priest to so his Last Rights and we all sat in and listened on the bed right next to him, during his last rights he squeezed my mom’s hand and took his last breath 1opkmaf. It was absolutely devastating to watch my Pop take his last breath and be by his side when he did. I have never felt more upset in my life as did my mom holding his hand when he took his final breath.
A few days later was the Funeral and Church service and it was definitely hard business collaboration software. I love my Pop so much and he is my now my Guardian Angel in Heaven watching down on me.
I’ve been grieving and that’s why I haven’t posted.
RIP Pop
I still miss you terribly

    I know it's been a while since you posted this, but you still have my deepest sympathies. My grandma actually passed away on Christmas Day this past year. I was by her side when she took her last breath, and I was by my grandpa when he took his last breath 2 years ago. I was close to them both, and I miss them every day. As silly as it may seem to some, I still talk to them all the time. I know they're watching over me. πŸ™‚ I'm sure your grandpa is watching over you, too.

    On a more upbeat note, thank you for all you do here on your blog and YouTube as well as the free printables! I appreciate all the work you put into everything
