Sometimes you just need to VENT!

To begin, the 30th was the five year anniversary of my son's death. He died at eight months old after a long fight against DiGeorge Syndrome. This is a chromosomal defect that causes a barrage of problems. Every year this day has been difficult for me. This year it is especially difficult, because I was near death myself. I am now ten weeks out from decompression and c1 laminectomy. Yesterday I received news that I have kyphoscoliosis and congenital scoliosis from T12 to L3. I am set up to have a thoracic injection on Friday to release the muscles on the right side of my rib cage. I am hoping to go back to work part time starting on Monday, but now I have thrown more problems into the situation. It is just one of those weeks where I feel overwhelmed with my situation. I know that God does not give me more than I can handle, but I am feeling like this is pretty close. Trying to keep a positive attitude. Thanks for letting me get this off of my chest.

I'm so sorry, losing a child is awful and do not wish that on any parent. Hopefully they help you with the pain soon :(
