Week in READview:

Real life:

So when my dad originally went into the hospital it was because he had a heart attack…fast forward 3 months and he got a really bad sore that they were not able to get under control. On Wednesday, May 6th my dad passed away. We are so heart broken. That wasn’t what was how this was suppose to end. He was suppose to go to rehab and come home. There wasn’t suppose to be a sore that got infected because of his diabetes or the fact that he really wasn’t taking very good care of himself, no matter how much we argued with him. The infection got so bad it traveled through his system but we didn’t realize how bad it was. We haven’t seen him since March 14th. My mom spoke to him but he was very confused. We were so worried about him and his confusion which could have been from the infection. I can’t express how extremely sad we are and how hard life will be without him. He was such an amazing guy, would do anything for his family and friends, super funny and his life revolved around his children (my sister and I) my mom and his grandkids. His grandkids made his face light up, he loved them so much. We were blessed to have an amazing dad/pop, he will be missed forever and I just don’t know what to do without him. I know it will take time. We were so close and this is going to be so hard.

Blogging & Reading:

My Blog keeps running out of memory so I can’t update with books and stuff I got so I will next week when it will hopefully be fixed. I was able to get it to stop saying it was out of memory by deleting something in my cPanel but I need to find out why it keeps happening. Almost every other month my disc space gets filled. 5 years and I have had no issues until the last 6 months. I’ll be back to full time blogging on Tuesday.

I am reading but it’s slow, it has been keeping my head busy and at the moment I am thankful for that.


So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?

Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!

Happy Reading

  1. I am so sorry about your Dad!!! That is the absolute worse when a loved one goes into the hospital and you think they’re going to get out, do their rehab and be fine and then something like this happens.

    A big ol’ hug for you.

  2. I’m so sorry about your dad!
    Diabetic complications are horrendous… I know that first hand from when they took my grandfather (who helped raise me) away from me in my final year of university. 🙁

    Look after yourself. Thoughts are with you and your family.

  3. I’m so so sorry Michelle. I am glad you’ve been able to enjoy your reading still. Definitely lean into that distraction. Virtual hugs.

  4. I am so sorry, Michelle. I lost my father nine years ago and although the grief is less intense, I still miss him and think of him often. There are no words for what you must be feeling right now. Know that so many of us are thinking of you and your family.

    I hope you are able to get the blog situation fixed. That must be so frustrating.

    Take care. Stay safe and well.

  5. Oh my Michelle I am SO SORRY. There are no words. I am stunned reading this and my heart goes out to you and your family. Hugs and support to you…!!!!!

    Take care of yourslf my friend.

  6. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I understand the struggle of trying to get a parent to take care of themselves—my dad has diabetes too, and he just won’t take his health seriously. It’s very frustrating, especially knowing that we could lose him someday over something as small as an infection.

  7. Hugs, Michelle! I can’t imagine the loss of your dad. Sympathies for you and your family.

    Hope the memory thing will be righted for you soon.

    Michelle, I am so sorry about your dad. That quote is exactly right, living without them is the hard part. Keep your memories close. It is so hard to deal with grief anytime, but this lockdown makes it harder. Know that he is not in pain, and that he loved you and your family.

  9. So so sorry about your father, I know how hard it is to lose a parent. I still deal with it even today and it’s been a while since my mom’s death. *super big hugs* Hope you get your blog fixed! 🙂

    Stay safe and happy reading!
