I am so sorry I have had such a long absense from the boards. But after the diagnosis of cancer, everything escalated from there. And I was her health care proxy, so I was front and center at the hospital every day. (My new employer was very understanding. Amazing flexibility was granted to me in this whole situation)

My mom passed away last week on Thursday morning, just after midnight. We had a wake this past Sunday and then cremated her.

Anyway, I am slowly getting back into the swing of things. Thanks to all for your kind support.

IB - My deepest sympathies to you and your family.  I'm so sorry for your loss.  I know how difficult those times can be, dealing not only with the illness and loss of your loved one but with the general upheavel in your life.  I'm glad you had a sympathetic employer.  I'm sure that took a lot of stress off you.

Take it one day at time.  We're glad you're back.  You were missed.

God bless you.

I figured your long absence was because of the loss of your mother.  Now is the time to heal your loss and remember always to be patient and loving with yourself.  Reading the obituary, I note that you have 5 sisters and brothers?  Having so many brothers and sisters should help ease the burder of loss.  Your mother was born one year before my oldest sister.

IB
While it's unusual to convey condoloences on an internet forum, there is a familiarity that develops among people you interact with on a somewhat regular basis.
Sharing your novel has been a highlight of some days, so I definitely missed the follw-ups.
I hope your family has been a comfort during this difficult time, and I hope in some small way, we have as well.

Deepest sympathies.  I hope you can find the strength to be reminded mostly of the best about your mother who shaped you and helped to form your ethics and outlook.

My new job has become very demanding. I go to bed every night exhausted and my laptop sits there untouced.

I have 7 whole chapters I have not posted. I apologise. Wish me luck in getting a handle on my job and being able to balance out my worklife/homelife.
