I'm so so sorry for those of you dealing with loss. My deepest condolences go out to you Lavawitch and Moon. I'm sorry I haven't sent a message sooner.

The doctor who preformed my Grandpa's biopsy called today--it's pancreatic cancer. He goes Thursday to the oncologist to discuss treatment options.

I knew the chances were very, very slim of it not being cancer (given the location of the tumor and the PET scan results), but I'm just totally loosing it knowing it's cancer for sure. My Grandma has Alzheimer's and when she's not with my Grandpa (even for short times) she gets really distressed. We were all hoping she'd go first, because we don't think she'll be able to handle him not here. My mom and Uncle's are going to talk to my Grandpa to find out his wishes for Grandma to try to make him worry less about when he's gone. And then, because of her Alzheimer's, she doesn't really know what's going on. I visited them this weekend, and she went between being worried about getting the results and thinking they already had and telling my Grandpa "but everything is okay! You don't have cancer!" when he'd talk about it.

He's 90. I know he's lived a full life, but it hasn't always been easy. I just hate how the end is going to be so hard for him.

S-Love, I am so sorry for your bad news!

It may be worth keeping in mind that cancers in the elderly grow much slower than they do in younger people. My stepmother's father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at 84. They opened him up to do surgery, and found it was everywhere, so they just closed him up, and he didn't even want to do chemo or radiation. So he went home and was determined to just enjoy life until he passed. He died last summer at 98 from congestive heart failure. Every case is different, but I hope that your grandfather's diagnosis isn't a death sentence and that perhaps hearing another person's experience can give some comfort.

All the sounds are still too soundy. I wish I could sleep pretty much from yesterday up until when my brain is my brain again.

We brought dad home today.

They gave us the flag to take to Arlington. I asked for "We love you" to be engraved on the box.

I think today has been the worst day of all. Pretty sure I've cried all my tears forever. Used up the whole supply.

Dad was looking forward to the Bill Nye debate. We were going to yell at the screen together.

My brother is in hospital. Apparently he was complaining of being hot and cold and then turned blue. I hope he's going to be ok.

Oh my goodness 8ball that sounds scary! I hope he's feeling better soon.

And I'm sorry to hear that it's been rough, LW. I hope it gets easier for you--he sounds like a really great dad.

Oh, Lavawitch. This broke my heart. 2 years ago I had some pretty dark days and I remember feeling that exact same way. I came out the other side, and I promise, you will too. I'm so so sorry you are feeling this way.

Another MLK Day and/or Black History Month, another opportunity for a teaching institution to show us just how far we have to go:

Yep. Fried chicken, watermelon, and cornbread are the sum total and wholly expressive of African-Americans' cultural achievements and contributions to our world and society.

Sorry people have been experiencing yucky stuff. My thoughts are with you all.
Today I got a talkin' to by my boss because apparently too much of my cleavage-(I'm a chesty gal, no matter what I wear, they stick out) was showing. I'm kind of pissed no one said anything to me to my face about it and had to report it to my boss.

Went to wegmans and automatically went to pick up a little cake for my dad. I always got a bakery treat for him when I stopped there on my own.

Aww, that's pretty hard, lavawitch. Do they have any vegan cakes so you can have one in his honour?

I still see things that I think would be perfect gifts for my granny, who I miss a lot. It's getting a bit less tough with every passing year though.

Now that my cat Agnes is stable (which could very suddenly change at any time, and she certainly isn't going to live very much longer) and we're not in crisis mode anymore I have the time and energy to be sad about my break-up again and I can't do anything to distract myself because the snow has shut the town down and I texted her last night which was stupid and she's ignoring it. And I know she's in my neighborhood right now because of Instagram, of course.

Woke up in the night feeling nauseated, slept fitfully for a few hours, then woke up puking all over myself. I feel really really terrible, and I have so much to get done today. Still, it could be worse. poopieboy seems fine (thank goodness), I don't have to keep my cousin's baby today, and I don't have a baking order for today. Looking on the bright side is hard when you feel like shiitake on your only day off.
