ok. so if i seem detached or forgetful or downright insane…
here is a bit of what’s going on. and this is not a pity party. i’m doing fine. just wanted to explain myself.
they say, “when it rains it pours” well, folks, i’m in the middle of a flash flood!
and while i think *i* have problems, my little brother (17yrs old) is in the hospital right now. he had a tumor behind his kidney that was removed on Tuesday afternoon. it was a large tumor that affected some other organs and sprung up quite quickly and has affected his health drastically in a matter of months. there are tests being run as we speak, but we won’t know anything for sure until next week. whatever the outcome, the doctors are still suggesting chemotherapy because it was so aggressive, this tumor. while there isn’t much i can do, really, i’m still spending time at the hospital when i can to help my parents.
and, while i hate to admit this, i have fallen behind on work for several clients – not purposely but because there just aren’t enough hours in the day for me right now to tackle EVERYTHING. my cell phone battery dies about 10 times a day. i have forgotten several appointments and scrambled to meet deadlines. so i apologize if you are being affected or if you feel that i am absentee. the truth is that i am. everything is just sorta spinning out of control and i’m dizzy and i don’t know what to focus on first.
i know things will get better. and this is not an invitation for “oh i’m soooo sorry” or “you poor thing” type of comments. it’s meant to be more of an explanation. more of an “i hope you understand” sort of note.
i’m not sad or crying. i’m just a wee-bit frantic and spastic and trying to line everything up.
thank you for understanding and for your patience if you are one of my clients. or if you are a friend that has called and i can’t seem to complete a sentence because my mind is elsewhere and you fear that i might be suffering from ADD.
i know it’ll get better. and all i can do until then … is… hang in there.
please hang with me!
