The last time I posted about my current situation I was in a terrible state. I was pretty much crying everyday. Now I am just trying to stay positive and look at brighter side of things. But then there is the moment when I have to leave Gavin home with Kevin and that breaks me. It's extremely hard to be away from him. You're probably wondering "Why does she have to be away from him?" Well, I live in New Jersey now and my Mom lives in New York. Bronx to be exact. I don't have anyone to help me with Gavin so I can take my Mom to receive her Chemotherapy and I choose not to take him with me, because the last thing I need is for him to get sick from constantly being in hospitals. So I have to leave him in NJ with his Father. I try to visit as much as I can, but there's always appointments to attend to.

By the way, I don't think I shared this before, but my Mom was diagnosed with Colon Cancer stage 3. Her tumor was removed, but she needs Adjuvant therapy to kill any cancer cells that might've remained after surgery. My Mom just received  her first Chemotherapy 2 weeks ago and she has 11 cycles to go.  She has already started feeling the side effects. It hurts so bad to see her in pain. I just pray that all of this is over soon and she's able to go back to her old self. Always happy, joking and full of life.

Hope you enjoy my little chunk's new photos. Gavin is just an amazing boy.

  5. You will get through this. You're a wonderful daughter and your mother is lucky to have you by her side. I watched my mother go through cancer treatment and it was and still is the hardest thing I've even experienced. But you are strong and I'm so glad Gavin and Kevin are there to cheer you up when you need it.
    Big Hug!

  8. You and your mother are so lucky that the tumor was removed. Many times there is nothing to be done. You will see that everything will be OK, it's just an obstacle in your life and you have to learn something from it.

  15. I recently came across your blog and have loved every minute of your posts including the ones when you were pregnant!

    With that said, I think it is incredibly courageous of you to share what is going on in your personal life. I pray for your mother and her strength for recovery and for your strength as you continue to support her and be a mother of your own. I do not know you but I pray in earnest for you and your family. And thank you again for being so open with us.

  16. I'm sorry to hear about your mom. She sounds like a strong woman and I'm hoping that things go well for her.
    You do not need to explain why you have to leave your kid with your husband. Your little guy is lucky to have two parents in his life who love and care for him and can be there for one another when the other is in need. You are an awesome daughter!
    Take care.

  20. The ups and downs of life can be so hard on us...I am sorry your mom and you are experiencing tuff times...I'm sure she just loves having a supportive daughter like you on her side...Keep up the good work of being a good daughter, wife and mom...Its not easy but you will find out just how strong you are as you go through these difficult times and juggle all that you have to do...Best of wishes to your mom, sounds like she is on her way to brighter days...its amazing what the body can recover from...And don't feel bad about those days when you just have to let go and cry and you don't feel as strong as the other days....that in itself helps..Big hug to you Delmy!!! Hang in there and stay lovely!!! :)

  23. Hi Delmy,

    I'm a longtime fan of your blog but this is my first time leaving a comment.
    I am so sorry about your mother's diagnosis; I will keep her in my prayers and hope for a speedy recovery. You are an inspiration and I hope you are able to stay strong and positive in light of your current hardships. Your Gavin is a beautiful boy and I wish you, your mother and your family all the best.

  24. Hi,
    I din't visit your blog for a long time! I rarely comment, I don't write English so well... But I want to share you all my love and support in this horrible situaiton! I didn't know you were not with the father of your son, it's sad =/
    I'm sad for your mum... My mum's boyfriend just died from cancer and I can't stop crying, it's so unfair, so soon!
    I hope your mum will be okay. Natural things can help with the quimio, like Noni's juice, vitamine B17, Germanium Oligo-element,... She has to take care of her nutrition too, it's good to see a specialist.
    I think about you and your mum, be strong!
