I do want to explain what has been going on with my family and why I haven't been on as much as I should. My two year old nephew has been diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer. They did surgery but they aren't sure they got it all. You can actually read about it in my blog along with the type of cancer he has.

I'm trying to raise money for my step father's plane ticket to go out there and spend some time with River because I do not think he has a lot of time left. He starts chemo soon and I'm just struggling with the entire thing. I wish I could take it from him because I would, no second thoughts or questions asked. If you could, please share my blog entry. I would appreciate it, more than you know.

Information about the vagus nerve, what it does, what it controls, and why it causes so many problems other than ‪#‎gastroparesis‬ when it's damaged.

This is my daughter Samantha. (19 years old). She has had gastroparesis for over 4 years. Its so hard on her body mentally and physically. She gets sick every day several times a day. She is on a liquid diet right now. We have tried everything... Its so heartbreaking. She has lost so many years already of her teenage years being sick. I worry about her future. She can't work, go out to eat or even hang with friends. She is so very strong and she tells me all if the time "Everything is going to be ok Mom" I love her with all of my heart. She has 2 other sisters who are healthy. I pray for a cure for this disease. God bless all those who have this.

I wrote this today. I hope it helps some of you, who are mourning the loss of loved ones. It's my own rituals and things I do when I lose someone, since I can't really go to funerals and things vomiting. Having a chronic illness is hard, especially when you lose someone to one and you have one yourself. I hope this helps and I want you to know you're in my thoughts:

I thought this article would be useful and helpful to people with chronic illnesses, especially since our holidays are centered around food:
