It’s been quite a week…

As if bloat week isn’t enough, 
Monday my mom texted to say my uncle was admitted to the hospital (he had cancer before that he wasn’t supposed to survive this long and had been doing well as far as I knew). 
Tuesday 1/3 of E’s department got laid off including some dear friends. 
Wednesday the rest of the hospital layoffs happened, and we got a lovely email notifying us of travel details when the dates weren’t discussed prior. 
Today, my mom texted to say my uncle passed, and I got the message at my last mops meeting. 
So many emotions. Focusing on the positives in each struggle. My uncle beat the odds and got more time. E’s safe so we don’t have to look for jobs and the bosses told him they appreciate him (always good to hear). For our friends who were laid off, we are better for knowing them and we can still be friends even if we don’t work at the same place. Changes are hard and losses stink but we also have to rise to new challenges because of them.
