I forget if I mentioned it to you guys or not, but my grandma got diagnosed with breast cancer about a month or so ago. Mom and I both got our breasts checked out, and we both came back negative and okay. The lump that was in my breast was calcification in a pocket of scar tissue left over from my reduction surgery.
My grandma had a lumpectomy done about a week ago. She’s doing well from the surgery. Blood pressure is getting a little high, so they are monitoring that, and she’s been put on strict watch by my aunt, to make sure she stays hydrated (that’s important). But the results from her surgery came back. All the area surrounding the cancerous lump is negative and clear. Her surrounding lymph nodes are negative and clear (Thank GOD) and it seems she’ll need little to none radiation (no chemo whatsoever). So all in all, it sounds like they got all the cancer and grandma will be just fine! So we’re all so, so, so relieved.
I haven’t meant to be away. My meds have not been working as well as I would have liked, so my stomach has been keeping me kind of away a lot. Been losing way more sleep and not being able to eat much, to recharge my batteries or anything. I’m managing as best as I can. I’ve had a lot of people forward me plenty of names of GI/Crohn’s etc specialists that I can see once I have some money. I’m planning on taking a chunk out of settlement for that sole purpose. I think more/additional tests need to be ran.
We still have our accident case going. We’re unsure whether or not we still have to do depositions and what not. And our attorney is trying to avoid any unwanted court proceedings. I can’t imagine sitting in a court room for hours on end, just to relay once again, how I was just a passenger in all this. Not driving. So, you know, my case should be open/shut (you’d think). STILL HOPING that by the end of the year, we’ll have this all wrapped up and we’ll get our settlements. We need it. We’ve been struggling quite a bit here. (Summer months are always kind of rough on the bills).
Had my 10 year High School Reunion last weekend (God, I’m old :/ ) It went well. Reconnected with a few of my old classmates. Got to see a good bit of them. Everyone basically danced and drank and had fun.
Also, Ethan will be coming down this weekend to celebrate the 4th of July, but after the 4th, two weeks from then, Ethan will be down again. Except this time, he’s staying with us an entire month. So, we’re tickled pink, but it means my babysitting duties have grown a lot more so lol, it’s why I’ll probably be gone some more. I don’t like to have my nose too much into electronic stuff when the kiddo is down. Cause, he’s only going to be this age and this little once; I’d hate to miss all that due to me not being able to turn away from a Youtube video. Plus, this aunt is going to try and come up with some clever, fun ideas to do with him during this month. (I already have glow in the dark ring toss, printing up little menus from “his made up” restaurant and actually cooking and serving some of his made up dishes, I’d like to make some candy sushi with him, etc). Just some cool stuff. Because the boy can get involved and pretty wrapped up in his video games. And I want to try and have him…do a bit more, you know. But it’ll be fun.
So that’s my little update. I don’t purposely mean to be away a lot or ignore my friends or anything. Just still a good bit on the plate, way too much activity than what I’m used to, but I haven’t forgotten anyone on here. I will come on from time to time, to post pictures and all. I want to try and actively document this summer, his time here. And to share some with you guys as well. :)
