So I know I kind of up and left with a very little explanation and I am very sorry for that. I really got hit with a brick of tragedy here and I just got overwhelmed and had to do what was best for my family and I didn't think this blog was of dire importance at the time. So I am starting to get my self back on track and I thought I would explain what is going on and give you a little peak into my personal life at the moment.
What hit me so hard was that my mother was diagnosed with cancer. See my mom has been sick for about 8 months, she has been in and out of the hospital and the doctors kept telling her it was small things at first, the flu, UTI's, then it was nothing's wrong with you. We were getting nowhere, well during that eight months the cancer spread so finally when she was diagnosed, what started as cervical cancer spread and grew uncontrollably. She now has cervical, ovarian, uterine, bladder, stomach, and intestinal cancer. They did a surgery but couldn't get it all. My mother now has to go through six week of radiation and then six months of chemotherapy to fight for her life, she is in stage three and we are very unsure if they can put in remission but we will damn well try.
I am the oldest of three children, I have two younger sisters they are 10 and 12 and you cannot imagine the toll this has taken on them, to hear their mom has this very scary disease and might not make it. Especially after all we have been through, just three years ago my father suffered a massive stroke and suffered right side paralysis and lost his speech. By the grace of God he is able to walk again and function for the most part but his speech and comprehension is still far from perfect. My father was 37 when he had his stroke my mother is 39, this has all happen so suddenly and I have become the caretaker for not only my sister but both my parents as well.
So when I posted that message, my fiance and I had made the decision to move back in with my parents so we could take care of them and the kids and get my mom to her treatments as well as help with the bills that are piling up due to them both being out of work now.
I am slowing getting back to my books, and I do plan on doing reviews for every book and author I promised one too it just may take some extra time. I just ask some patience and understanding from all of you. I do not want to lose my readers or my authors you all mean so much to me. So to all the authors that got emails from me I do still want to review your books and I do plan on doing them slowly, my request form is going to remain closed for the time being until I can catch up because I have about 20 reviews to do at the moment.
