Un-fun Things to Write About

There are a million things going through my mind right now, but I needed to make a post and explaing to you why, even having a new computer finally, I haven't been able to post much lately.

My mother has cancer.

She was diagnosed just a few weeks ago with colon cancer that has spread into her liver, and is inoperable.

She decided to try chemotherapy and fight it, but before she could even start that, she ended up in the hospital with kidney failure.

Her kidneys have been improving, which obviously is good, but the intense misery of the past three weeks have made her re-think what she wants to do.

We're meeting with Hospice in her room tonight, to get some information about what kind of things to expect if she decides to just try and be as comfortable as possible for whatever time she has left.

I'm letting you all know this just to explain my continued erratic posts; obviously, this is monopolizing my time.

I haven't had the luxury of an emotional breakdown yet (truthfully, this has all happened so quickly that I'm still kind of numb), but I know it's coming, and I'll post some of my thoughts and feelings here, as some form of therapy, I guess.

I'll try and post updates as often as I can.

Thanks for reading my ranting,
