I’m always thankful to be able to put one year to bed and to start a new one. This year I am especially happy to see the end of 2018 and am hopeful that 2019 will be better. I bought this tacky holiday decoration and put it in the kitchen. Because we need hope.
I haven’t paid attention to phat50chick this year. My RA is there and it’s about what you would expect with a chronic illness for an overweight woman with a stressful job and sick husband. I had nothing to say about my RA, but I will acknowledge that I haven’t felt my best this year.
This was the second year we searched for answers for Mr. Phat’s issues. We knew that they weren’t just due to aging. We tried a spinal fusion which was a difficult surgery that didn’t help. We explored another spine surgery but there was no way we wanted to rush into that.
We are still on the hunt but recent steps have sent us in a couple of directions. Maybe we are getting close. So we continue to have hope.
My hope for you, my readers, my friends, my family and my supporters, is a happy, healthy and blessed 2019
