Posted 10 Mar 2009 in not so much, please and thank you

I have not been a good blogger – TWO WEEKS have passed since my last post. I do have a bit of an excuse – I was in Mexico and have had some family stuff that have been a bit of a distraction.

Most recently, I found out my beloved grandmother’s cancer diagnosis has gone downhill. Almost 5 1/2 years ago she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and only given 2-3 years. Well, she’s defied the odds and has been living her life to the fullest since (thanks to numerous courses of chemo and radiation). The tumor has never gone away, but it’s been kept at bay.

For the past few months she’s been off chemo, as she’s basically used every kind that would help her. Today was a regular checkup for her (with bloodwork and CAT scan) and it revealed the cancer has not only grown, but has also moved into her abdomen and liver. Her numbers have increased almost 10x what they were 2 months before. It’s not good.

My grandma is the rock of my family, and she’s become that even more so since we lost my grandfather a couple years ago, and my aunt less than a year ago.

Please keep her in your thoughts. We need her here for a lot longer. :)
