Arrow What's new?

Kaltxì aysmukan si aytsmuke

It has been too long between visits for me. I’ve often thought of this place and wondered what’s new with all of my friends. Some may ask, “why not stop in and see?”.. Easy question but a difficult answer…

Throughout the last few months I have been spending a lot of time with my wife and her family, providing love and support for her ailing father. He was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer about four months ago. It has been a very difficult time for my wife.. She had already lost her mother about 13 years ago to leukemia. What made things worse, is that his passing was soo similar to hers. Once the morphine started to be administered he wasted away in less than a week… He passed away about two weeks ago now. We are slowly working ourselves back into our normal life.

On top of my father-in-laws sickness I had begun to struggle in school, which ultimately made me decide to take a break. I’ve had a few disappointments academically during my inlaws sickness and have been trying to work through them with my school. I won’t get into the details, but I’ll just say I have requested a grade change in the last class I took. Unfortunately the dispute process can take up to six weeks. Sooo I’m kind of in limbo for school ATM as I do not want to continue until things are resolved. Ahhh the waiting game.

Another big thing in my world these days is an ongoing dispute with my parents. My sister and I have pretty much stopped talking to them, and my wife has decided she wants nothing to do with my mother. I still love them both, but just need a break from my mothers drama…

A lot to deal with, but it didn’t stop me from feeling guilty over just kind of disappearing from ToS and AF. I often told myself to drop in and read a few posts and chat a little bit, but kept thinking about Alan’s video project that I pretty much flaked on, and all of you that may have wondered where I had gone. Alan has been so positive even with me not responding to his private messages. To all of you and to Alan, I’d like to apologize for disappearing without a whisper. I feel like getting back into the things I enjoyed about this community so much. I missed everyone here.
