Why I haven’t been posting much lately

I know ones who faithfully follow me, realize I haven’t been posting much. I don’t usually post personal family issues on here as well, but i think I need to this time. My family, has been dealing with the another round of blows. The word that makes many of us cringe the C word has attacked one of my family members. My uncle had just been diagnosed in January that he has it all through him, in December he found out he was going to be a grandpa, an was so happy, and now the doctors tell him he has 6-12 months to live. After getting 2nd and 3rd opinions, there’s nothing that can be done. This was a month ago, about a week ago we got the call if you want to see him, now maybe the time. He’s down to 107 pounds. From a healthy 180 or so 1 month ago. I’ve always been close to my uncle, especially after my dad passed unexpectedly when he was only 54. He looks so much like my dad, and every time I see him I see my dad. Even in the way he acts , just everything. So this has been hell on myself, and my entire family.
8 months ago my cousin who is the same age as myself was diagnosed with Lou Garrets disease. I don’t know much about it, but it’s destroying her. She has a lil boy, who she can’t speak to, she can’t hold, she can’t even feed herself. She’s not the same person I knew all my life. They don’t give her much time either. Its with a heavy heart for me to open myself up like this, but I just needed to get this out. I believe prayers help, even when there is very little hope.

I am so behind on my book reviews, but I have a great bunch of authors I review for an I’m sure they will understand. I’m trying to get back into reading and reviewing, but all this has really shocked my system to say the least.
Don’t ever take life for granted, as it can be taken from the best of us.
