The Life and Times of Whitney Drake

It’s been a year?

This week it’s the Santa Shop at the Oldest Kidlet’s school- where the kids can bring in money and pick out gifts for their loved ones, and bring them home wrapped. When the Oldest Kidlet started begging me for money, I was reminded of what happened during last year’s Santa Shop.

It’s been one year since I was hospitalized for extremely low iron and kept in the hospital because I had mysterious fevers and pains that needed to be diagnosed!

And it’s been a year without many health scares. I’ve had a few flareups. But before I went to the hospital, it was once or twice a month. So it’s been a really great year. (Even if I did have to have a colonoscopy and drink that HORRIBLE prep liquid beforehand)

I’d been so focused on the other anniversary coming up that I hadn’t even thought about this one. (Fair warning, things might just be a little more down here than usual)

    HUGS! It has been a down week for me so far too. I keep chanting my mantra “I choose to be happy. I choose to be happy. .I choose to be …”. but it IS a challenge. There will always be a hole in our hearts.

    I’m blogging about it tomorrow. Wrote it all today since I don’t think I’ll really be able to address it tomorrow. I just keep pushing myself forward.
