I am really, really tired today after three visits to three different doctors, four phone calls back and forth to Johns Hopkins Hospital, and some blood work (as well as having to deal with the term "metastasized neoplasm" in direct relation to my situation), so - just, if you can, please go here to read the full update, which is update #16. I'm not even asking for donations. If you CAN help or want to help, that is awesome, but I just wanted to let everyone know what's happening.

On top of that, my grandmother is in Shock Trauma because she has severe pneumonia and broke part of her spine - and regarding the latter issue, no one at her assisted living facility noticed it for an entire day. I don't know how critical the situation is at this moment, and I can't go visit her because I'm just now getting over a case of bronchitis (that thankfully did NOT turn into pneumonia...), but if you have any additional spare thoughts or prayers, please send them her way. She's 94, and up until age 89, lived a very healthy, independent life, but I still hate to think that she is suffering and doesn't know what's happening to her (as her dementia has worsened recently).

Thanks. Love you guys.

*hugs back* xoxo

Thanks so much. I'm waiting to hear back about her condition - hopefully, we'll know more tonight. I'm worried, but I hope that if this is her time, they've quelled her pain so that she can go easily. She's really had a kind, remarkable life. <3

I agree. And while I may not get the "live until 94" part, I very much want the "was kind to people and lived well" part, if you know what I mean. That's the best way - live well and with kindness along the way. :) *hugs* xoxo.

You've already achieved that! :-) *hugs* Every positive that comes after that knowledge is a happy bonus. xxx
