The last 10 days have not been great. It’s definitely a case of when it rains it pours. For those of you who were here last week you were made aware of my cousin’s home burning and how they lost everything. Right before that day I found out an aunt who had been battling MD (or is in MS, my brain is mush right now) actually was misdiagnosed. Come to find out she has a large tumor (and some others if I remember correctly) that are in her spine and pushing on her spinal cord and that is what is causing her mobility and life issues. Another aunt fell earlier this year and her back has not healed. Now she’s looking like she’s going to have to face surgery. Friday my MIL had surgery to remove her thyroid and a large turmor that has reappeared. Saturday hubs grandma passed after her long battle with dementia/alzeheimer’s. Last night MIL was rushed to ER because her throat was swelling and she couldn’t breath or talk.
So this morning as we are heating to the funeral MIL is being taken to surgery because she has a giant blood clot that had formed in her neck at the incision point. After surgery she was to be intibated and kept sedated for a few hours to make sure everything was going to be ok before they allowed her to wake up. She should be waking right about now, if not within the last hour or so.
Slow down world, I can’t keep up. I kinda think I need a break. Maybe a mini vacation to recharge my batteries.
Let’s get this linky started. I need some good food to cheer me up!

I came across Paris’s Skinny Pumpkin Ice Cream from My Bit Fat Happy Life on another link party and I knew at first glance I just had to visit her and invite her over to ours. Look at that amazing ice cream. Yea, yea, I know you know I have an affinity for anything pumpkin related so I might be a bit bias.

Wow, what a lousy time you’ve been having. It’s definitley cause for some emotional eating if you ask me.
Aww man you’re having a rough time! I hope it settles down a bit and some good things come your way. Pumpkin pie ice cream sounds interesting!

You’ve had a really tough go of it for awhile. I’ll be keeping you family in my thoughts. Hang in there.
I love finding new recipes. Round ups are my favorite. There are so many great recipes here!
I am so sorry to hear about the fire and the misdiagnosis. You have my good thoughts.
Those coconut cupcakes look so good. My husband would love the pumpkin ice cream.

Gosh girl. Rough bit you are going through. We have had some family illness and I can relate.
I hope things calm down for you and you can recharge. I hope all goes well with your MIL.

So sorry to hear about your MIL. I think you should make some of that pumpkin ice cream and share it with her when she recovers.
It seems things have been really tough for you lately. On a happier note, that pumpkin pie ice cream looks amazing.

Oh my gosh seriously? You need a hug, a daquiri and a long vacation! I am so sorry, I hope it turns around for you soon.
I’ve never tried pumpkin ice cream. Pretty sure I’d be running to the front of the line if it was offered though. 🙂
I would be right there with you.
I have had it, but I can’t remember what brand. I think I had some from Baskin Robbins years ago.
YOU deserve a break. I’m sending good thoughts for you and your family!
Thank you so much.
