Turns out my grandmother has gone into renal failure and has been hospitalized again. A transplant and dialysis are impossible, so it's probably only a matter of time before she goes. The toxins have impaired her thought processes and she's confused all the time, too. It tears me up.
Beyond that, I also found out that my favorite person in my uncle's family is dying of cancer. This was my real shocker. Grandma's health has been poor for a little while and so I was mildly prepared for that. Hearing that Mel - one of the most gregarious, funny, generous people of my childhood - is dying rocked me. So my day went downhill from there. My in-laws were incredibly supportive and tried to cheer me up by bringing cinnabon home from the mall. I decided to indulge.
I'm still trying to get my pictures off my camera. I'm hoping to have those up soon. Those will be something to brighten everybody's days hopefully. :)
