Bitter sweet

Tonight I was lucky enough to see Emersyn again via Ultra Sound. While waiting my mom informed me that My dads mom, My Omi, has intestinal cancer. She gained just over 10 pounds in a week due to blockage. She still doesnt know she has it, she has been medicated, She is in way to much pain to be awake so she is out. My Ompa (grandfather) is afraid that she isnt gonna wanna battle this, that she is gonna wanna just let it take its course and die. Over the past couple years she has been going through a lot of medical issues. She has already beat cancer once, breast cancer.

Last October we were able to spend a few days with her and Im so happy we did. Anberlyn was able to meet her. My dad is having a little bit of a hard time with it, my aunt is on her way there now to be with them.

On that note, Emersyn has a middle name. 'Emersyn Ingrid Lane Benson'
Ingrid is my Omi' name and Lane is my moms mid name. I know its long but its special.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your Omi's health. What a difficult thing for everyone in your family to have to carry. I think naming Emersyn after her is a beautiful way to honor her.

  2. I'm sorry Tess. I agree with the poster before me, I think naming Emersyn after her is a special way to honor and remember her.

  3. Sorry to hear about your Omi's health Tess. I will keep her in my thoughts. Emersyn might have a long name, but a beautiful one with special meaning.
