A Very Sad 3 Month Update

I'm making this update early because I won't be here to post it on the 15th. To say this summer has been hectic is an understatement. I think I sat down a total of 4 days the entire 3 months. At least I know I didn't miss anything.

I've had just about every type of food you can imagine and ate at almost all of the restaurants that exist in this area and all the major restaurants in the areas I traveled to (except Applebees...I didn't make it there).

I came home from my last vacation yesterday to find out my Granny was sick and in the hospital. She was due to have surgery today on her pancreas and had developed a severe case of jaundice. When we got to the hospital she was a moong dal yellow, maybe darker. It was scary to see her like that. I remembered having jaundice last year and I was nowhere near that bad but I do remember how I felt. My Granny is 84 so this had to be even worse on her.

I had just seen her 2 weeks ago and she was in fairly good health and her skin color was rosy like it should be. But this prospect wasn't good. They explained to us yesterday at the hospital that she had a mass inside of her pancreas and if it was cancer, her health was too bad for her to undergo chemotherapy.

They took her into surgery earlier today and then biopsied the mass. It was cancer. I'm extremely emotional on a good day and this is just not something I was prepared to deal with at this time. I will be back to the blog once I've had time to process this grief. I just can't type much or focus right now.
