Rickie Traeger: My Mom Passed Away From Cancer ;(

  • Rickie 




 

I write this blog with a heavy heart.

I lost my mom to cancer on Wednesday February 17th 2021 at 10:52 pm.

She went to the ER on January 29th for a broken arm, and found out she had cancer.

And a short time later she passed away from cancer.

F**k Cancer!!!

I am beyond heartbroken.   I thought it was rough with my dad when he passed away in 2014.  The death of my mom was waaaaaaaaaaaay rougher! I always thought my mom was going to live forever.

She was my rock, she was my superhero, she was a 2nd mom to many, she was my mom.

And for God to take her away from me, words can not describe how I feel.

I am thankful she was able to say her goodbyes to many and she was surrounded by love as she passed.

I ask that you keep my family in your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.

I hope any pray that my mom was able to see the other side, like I did ~ http://rickietraeger.com/my-near-death-experience-nde/

I can’t explain what happened to me. But I do know it happened. And I hope my mom had a similar experience.

So here it is midnight on Saturday, and I figured I would blog for a few minutes. 

My mom goes in for surgery on Monday, so keep her in your thoughts and prayers, please!

Now the frigid temps are here 🙁   30 below zero wind chills.  I guess there is one positive side to it, it is February so we won’t have to deal with winter too much longer.  Thank God.

So, I been toying around with the idea of going to church again.  I pray and read the bible. But I kinda want a guidance. I used to get private bible lessons awhile back ago. I do not want to attend church, but I want to find someone who can teach me the bible and religion. I guess I could just youtube it, lol.  I know many churches are doing virtual stuff these days, so it is a good time to do it virtually.  I guess if there was one positive thing about covid, it would be we learned we can all work and many things from home these days.  And one of those, is going to church from home.

I am going to kick back and toss on some headphones and turn up some music from youtube or spotify.

Hope everyone stays safe and warm. Keep my mom in your thoughts and prayers for her surgery on Monday!

So here it is 1 week away from when I found out my mom has cancer. (1/29/2021)

I have been researching a lot on the topic. I never really had to deal with a cancer situation before. I guess the closest I came, was with my horoscope sign, lol.  Sorry, just trying to think positive and make a joke there, lol. My dad passed away from diabetes.  I know some who passed  away from covid.  But never have I had to deal with this cancer situation.

I know my mom is a strong person. Very strong willed and independent.  She is a fighter.

We are hoping for the best.

Please, please, please keep my mom in your thoughts and prayers.

I do not want to lose my mom to cancer.

Please, if there is a God, please take her cancer away!!!

I apologize.

Many have been waiting for me to blog again.

I have gotten some horrible news since I last blogged.

I haven’t been in the mood to blog much.
Well, I guess I should rephrase that. I don’t know what to say…

I won’t say much, other than to keep my mom in your thoughts and prayers.
If there is a God, now is the time to be praying hard to him.  

So I apologize now, that I honestly don’t know if I will be in the mood to blog much or not.

All I ask, is pray hard for my mom.

Fuck Cancer
Fuck Diabetes
Fuck Covid

Well my plans were to blog after watching Svengoolie. But that did not happen, lol.  I ended up falling asleep.  I got to see a friend of mine I haven’t saw in awhile yesterday, Travis.   It was good seeing him.  We grew up together and had many great times back in the day.  Definitely good seeing him and catching up.

I have been watching the Nascar Full Race Replays on Youtube. Getting back into the Nascar mode 🙂

Below you can watch the race I am currently watching as I type this, Talladega!

Not to much planned for today. Doing RS and some ham radio.  Am also going to do some online training courses and a webinar for some weather stuff. I know it, but I am one of those people that like to keep things fresh in my mind. I always look at it as, why do the one and done motto. Basically why would you take a course and study something just once. Because over time you lose knowledge. So I like to keep things fresh in my mind, by redoing the courses and webinars.  One of the key things to survival is knowing what the weather is about to do.

One of the things that got me into weather and motivated me:

I have learned many times over the years. MANY times that the local weathermen on TV are clueless to what is actually going on out in the field.  I have saw MANY funnel clouds and tornadoes in Winnebago County, that the weathermen down right refuse to believe happened, because the NWS or their radar says did not happen.

But yet, right in front of me there is a funnel or a tornado.  MANY times…

I have lost all trust in the local weather people, based on their actions towards me.  Going to call me names and call me a liar. When I am trying to help the community by reporting severe weather to them… SMH.

I might add there were photos and videos to prove the funnels and tornados.  And they still deny it…

So, long story short: That is why I enjoy doing weather spotting. Because I know for a fact that eyes on the ground in the field are 1,000 times better than a weatherman on tv going by their equipment…  based on my own experiences.

And I know many people who will say the same exact thing.

See it is one thing to deny severe weather reports. But to be a jerk to the person that is trying to help you. Well that was the last straw on my end.  That is when I went full force into learning weather, radar, forecasts, etc…  And even went and got my ham radio license.

So that is why it is very important to keep up to date and keep things fresh in your mind because your eyes and ears will always be better than any equipment made. If you are trained properly.

But that is why I retake the courses and webinars and other training over again, multiple times.

Kick back and watch some Nascar with me!
