The random ramblings of a perpetual procrastinator. These are the life & times of a nursing home CNA navigating the ups & downs of living with someone who's living with a disability. A sometimes amusing, sometimes bittersweet look at my journey into real adulthood.

Life is short.

A coworker of mine passed away yesterday.  She was 61-years-old.

Having had surgery for a previous back injury, she dealt with chronic pain.  As it slowly worsened over time, she attributed it to "getting older."

When she couldn't take it anymore & saw a doctor it turned out to be much more.  She was diagnosed with cancer only a few short weeks ago, & it was already too late.

She was always friendly & helpful; very easy to get along with.

She will be missed.


  1. I'm sorry Renee...

    It's strange when you get to the point where you realize that 61 isn't very old at all.

  2. Sorry to hear this lady. I always put off things health wise....

  3. Oh gosh, that's hard. I'm so sorry....
