I’ve got a lot of things to be thankful for on my birthday this year. I’m happy to share that my health status is quite okay now. Based on my latest blood workup, there are no traces of fats in my liver. Weight loss is one of the factors that help my liver heal from fatty liver disease. I’ve lost almost 30 pounds primarily due to adhering to a low-carb diet. I eat everything in moderation, but I eat more veggies now. I’ve also added chia and flax seeds to my drinks.
Financially, we make ends meet. Despite the limited source of income, we’ve managed to support our youngest through college. We are looking forward to our son’s graduation this year. 🙏
My cousin Cecil would have been 48 today (June 28). She died four days before Christmas Day in 2015. Her family visited her at the cemetery where they offered flowers and prayers to commemorate her birthday on earth. I remember her as a tough cookie. She doesn’t easily give in to life’s challenges especially when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. She remained positive even up to her last few weeks. I did not hear anything negative from her. If she were alive today, she could be the one helping some family members who are in dire straits. She was a year older than me but I admit she’s more mature when it comes to decision making. I miss you Cez. Happy birthday wherever you are. :'(
