Update & Tribute

I haven't posted for a while, and every time I've thought to, I can't think of the right words. I've been writing all my thoughts down, and tonight I was able to finally put it all down. 
3 weeks ago I got hospitalized...I hadn't felt 100% for a while, and I went in and sure enough there was a spot on my right upper lung(the usual). So I was in the hospital for 1 week and I've been on home IV's since I will be done this week. 
Thankfully I am feeling much better. 

But the biggest thing that happened was 1 week ago Sunday. Life changed. If you follow me on Facebook you probably saw my post, but a week ago my hero took his final breathe. 
If you've followed my blog for a while you'll know my grandfather was my hero. I've done many posts about him. He was such an amazing man. He got hospitalized while I was in the hospital, so as soon as I got discharged I went up by him. He slowly went downhill and Sunday October 9th, 2016 he peacefully took his final breathe and entered into an amazing life. At 93, he lived such a full life. His wisdom, examples, knowledge, but most of all love will never be forgotten. I learned so much from him...but most of all I learned never take life for granted, and always make the most of everything. He was a simple man, worked hard all his life. He didn't have much, but made the most of what he had. He loved his family. I could go on and on. 
To me he was my hero and I know he's watching over us. I keep saying I've cried so much, but all happy tears. I'm sad because I'm selfish and want him here, but I'm so happy that he is now living a pain free life, and with all his friends and family. It wasn't a goodbye, it was just a "see you later". 

So there's a little update as to where I've been. I'm getting really excited now that it's fall, one of my favorite times of the year but also the start to the holiday season. 

I will try to write soon. Till next time.
