Personal Update – 18 July, 2018

I actually had to check to see which month we were in. 🙂

Lots of things going on in my life right now.

Didn’t get the dental surgery I was supposed to get.  The dental surgeon not being there was the biggest reason, but the official reason is my jaw isn’t strong enough yet to handle the bigger pins.  This means waiting until November just to be reevaluated!  It bites, but I don’t want the pins to come out this time so, I’m doing everything I’m told for once.

I quit my job.  I wasn’t all that happy in it to begin with – was having to make myself go, which says a lot right there.

My dearest friend, Sandra, is dying of Stage 4 Cervical cancer which has spread in the form of tumors all over her abdomen and neck.  She’s barely eating because of the tumors pressing on her colon and stomach.  She’s lost a lot of weight, has a nurse coming in at least once a week to check on her and make sure she has what she needs.  The doctors have given up trying to “cure” her and are just trying to make her comfortable as she nears the end.  They had given her a year, but in the few short months since they stopped all treatment, she’s gone downhill fast.  The nurse and her husband, Claude, who is also a friend of mine, don’t think she’ll make it to Thanksgiving.  I agree.

Since I told them I left my job, they’ve asked me to move in and be Sandra’s sitter.  She needs someone to be with her when Claude is at work, and the lady who was originally supposed to do it has not worked out.  I have applied to the hospice where she is registered for care, to see about being paid to be her sitter, but I’d do it for free simply because she needs me.  She’s the type of friend, and person, I’d do anything for.

They don’t have internet at their house since they live in a rural area, not yet anyway, so after this post, I won’t be online for a while.  This means no more posts from me for a bit.  I’ll do my best to get back on whenever I can, but Sandra is my main focus.

I’ll write blogs on paper and save them up for when I get back 😀  Then, you’ll see so many posts from me you’ll wish I would go offline again. lol

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver.  Anyone seen my car?
