So, here I sit at M.D. Anderson in Houston. I cannot believe that I can just stroll up to a computer and use it for just about anything I want (internet wise).
Oh, and let's just get the apologies out of the way now. I rely HEAVILY on the grammar and spell check that Microsoft Office provides, and this computer only allows me to access the internet, and I am too lazy to cut and
paste into some other page to check it.
Basically, you are going to get a glimpse at the "real" me, the me that exists underneath the safe confines of spelling and grammar check.
My grandma and I came to M.D. to get one of her check-ups. Who knows what all of this entails or why she has to go, but I see it as a nice "vacay," so to speak, and I volunteer to take her now and then. (More like the last 2 times)
I left my son with Blake, my fiance, thinking that I would be home around 5 or 6, since her last CT Scan is at 2 p.m.
Whomever she spoke to about her scheduling must have been under the influence of something, because her CT Scan STARTS at 4:30 p.m. Nice, huh? I am assuming that I won't be home until about 8 or 9, depending on how long the CT Scan takes, and whether or not there is any traffic.
I am just glad that she is better now, I definitely count my blessings there. She had to undergo a very rigorous radiation program for 5 weeks this summer, but she is doing so much better. She said it is the best diet she has ever went on, and if you ever want to lose weight, just get cancer.
She is not nearly as tired anymore, and she can walk so much further and longer now. We can go to the mall and she doesn't have to get out her power chair. That is such a huge feat right there.
I am proud that she has beat this, and overcome everything so far. Hopefully these tests today just prove that the cancer is out of her life forever. I hope so, at least.
So, keep her in your prayers and you guys (you 1.5 people that read this) have a great day. Oh, and go ahead and add Blake to your prayers. He is going to need it after spending all day and tonight with my 20-month-old. Hee hee...
Until next time, remember that Twizzlers make your mouth happy.
