January 2019 brought us a sad ending to the life of your last Great-Grandparent, Doña Lyda. She passed away on January 30th, 2019.
December 2018 was a weird month because midway through our Disney Birthday Vacation and after, you and dad got sick as dogs with the flu. You kept on saying that you were not going to get better and for your 8th birthday you had just gotten back your tastebuds. We got back on the 18th and for my birthday I was running around getting you guys meds and taking care of you both. It was nuts but somehow we made it through.
As the month progressed we worked on getting you back on track with homeschooling. We did visit Doña Lydia and Tio and they gave you tons of Christmas, Birthday, and Three Kings presents. And then one morning Tio Tito called your dad who had had a bad night and couldn’t sleep. Apparently while your dad was feeling sick, your Abuelita Lydia was dying.
That morning we rented a car, told you what happened, and drove to Ponce for the next three-four days to be with Tio who was so upset. Imagine living with your mom for 71 years and not having a family of your own to lean on? Earlier in
Somehow we managed to get through the rest of the month of February and on to March.
