Back in late August and September, I was busy adjusting to my new apartment.
In october, my uncle started to have health problems, and I myself got sick.
He had some trouble with energy, so he went to see his doctor. He was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. They got him feeling fine, and sent him home.
The next week, he was back in the hospital with swelling. Congestive heart failure can cause fluid build up. My uncle had it in his feet, really bad. I had gone to see him, the week he had it bad in just his feet. That weekend, I babysat my niece and on Sunday the night I took her home I got a really bad cold. Because I was sick, I did not go see my uncle. I did not want him to catch anything from me.
I thought it was a light cold, but on Friday my voice went raspy and on saturday it was completely gone.
However, on saturday my uncle was feeling better and at the rehab hospital. They were planning on sending him home in decent health that week. I was going to see him once he was well enough to go home. However, that did not happen.
Sunday he started to lose energy again. Monday the swelling started again. Tuesday he could not walk. Wednesday he was admitted into hospice. Thursday he died. This was one week before thanksgiving.
The sunday before he passed, my mom was saying he would make it another few months at least. On Tuesday, we thought he would at least make it to the weekend. Thursday, I got the call that I needed to say my goodbyes that night. I immediately got in my car, and 1/2 hour later I was there but he had passed.
Right now, I am having a hard time doing my normal things. I have not been on WoW for my raids at all. I tried to play and just started crying because it was too soon to let things get back to normal after my uncle passed. I am even crying now just typing this up.
I keep trying to ease back into normal life. Do things that are normal but not my everyday normal first. (this is of course excluding work. I cannot live without a paycheck. For the most part, i have been on auto-pilot at work).
So there is my update. Sorry about any bad grammar or spelling. I am not going to reread through anything and attempt fixing it. I just wanted to get this out there because I know I have received mail from someone asking how I have been.
Hope everyone else is doing well. I am just trying to not break down.
