Not the best day

I was feeling quite good about today when it started. I got Beg posted last night, and I had half the next one done. Then I went out and did my errands and got back to two bits of not so nice news.

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. :)
