From my horoscope (which I usually just amuse myself with):

Luckily, a brilliant quintile between beautiful Venus and unorthodox Uranus encourages us to take a risk as we attempt to turn our dreams into reality. It's more important to try than it is to succeed.

Amen.

But i'll still take the success too, thanks.

It took a couple of days, but my inbox has been reduced from 2000 emails to just under 100.

Don't wanna do that again.

Sometimes it isn't so much the value of the gift that's important, but the faith with which it is given.

Update on Gramma [Aug. 15th, 2007|02:08 am]

My grandma went for her first chemotherapy treatment yesterday. Sometime during the doctor visit they did bloodwork, etc again. There are now some unverified "shadowy" spots in her bones, and her social worker dropped me a bomb her cancer was diagnosed as Stage IV. Why didn't she just tell me herself? Thats what bothers me most... I think she was maybe just trying to protect my feelings but they dont need protecting. I love her and don't like the fact of these decreased odds, but I can handle it and I still have an optimistic outlook (and by that I dont mean that i'm living in denial, but rather hoping for a miracle which is ever possible).

They gave her a medicine in her I.V. that was supposed to keep her from getting sick for at least three days, but it started affecting her before she went to bed last night, so I had to go ahead and begin giving her medicines. On the upside, her Social Worker informed me that she had a nurse who was willing to come by for a couple of hours each day. At this point the help is most welcome.

In other news, I need to go and buy new clothes. Since i've been gaining weight i've been growing out of my old ones. I used to fit snugly in a 28, now I need to get some 30's and 31's. 28's and 29's squeeze me quite uncomfortably. I'm getting close to 140 lbs.

Hope everyone is faring well.

It's been quite a while since i've done any real update. I've either been too preoccupied and distracted with family matters or just not feeling up to it, so here goes.

Last month on the 13th, my grandma, who has raised me since I was 3 months old and is like my mom to me, was diagnosed with lung cancer. It's in it's early stages, but it has spread to her liver. Yesterday when she went to the doctors they found it was now in her upper lungs, so they want to begin chemotherapy. Diana (soror_pec) and myself have to fatten her up a bit before they can, because she only weighs 97 lbs. and chemo at that weight for her would make her seriously ill. Regardless of what the future holds, i'll be with her to look out for her and help her however I can. And when she passes, which hopefully wont be for years to come, i'm leaving Charlotte- the place I was born and have lived all my life.

Also last month, I spent the week from the 16th through the 23rd in the intensive care unit at the hospital. I made friends with sooooo many nurses lol, but it also sucked because I was terribly homesick. Diana and my Gramma came to visit every day, and even my Dad popped in a couple of times. When I was admitted on the 16th I was already in DKA (Diabetic Ketoacitosis) and my weight was a frightening 96.5 lbs(!). Since then i've managed to pick up to 119.2. My goal is 130.

So, during my stay, they figured out that Diabetes was not the cause of my metabolic abnormality, and was itself the symptom of yet another disease- the uber rare lipodystrophy. They did take me off the oral meds and put me on insulin shots, which I am actually happy about, because I have a few less food restrictions now ^_^

Well, i'm off for coffee and a snack. Be well everyone.
