No News is good News...

Mom went to the Oncology clinic this afternoon for her regular schedule visit. She has not been feeling at her best these past few days. I thought maybe the heat was taking a toll on her, because she is oxygen Dependant but as she left the doctors office today she found out different.

Last October she had start taking IV chemo to prevent the Cancer from spreading in her bones, but they never prescribed anything for the Cancer in her lungs, because doctors were unsure if the spotting on her lungs were from cancer or some sort of other lung disease (pulmonary fibrosis)  and the doctors were convinced that she cannot do a biopsy because of her breathing they thought she may have went into cardiac arrest.

Long story short as of July 22nd they want here to get a second chemo treatment aside from her six  week treatment this chemo is for the lungs and it will be given weekly. That is not the type of News she wanted to here shit none of us wanted to here that...she broke down instantaneously but I kept talking to her threw out the day and she finally started to eat something , she had lost her appetite again and that is not cool ..My mom went from a healthy 180lbs. to now 143lbs smh...It's crazy but am taking it one day at a time and I know the outcome is not going to be what any of us want but I need her to not think about that right now I want her to just live day by day for now. Life is what you make it and even tho she is not happy with her condition there is nothing that can be done at this time to change it ...I didn't tell her straight like that but am trying to make her understand she is not alone in this...

shit  Iam trying to quit smoking after I got off the phone with her I went straight to the store and bought a packet of Newport's talk about stress she has know idea how this ish is tearing me up to she such a independent strong women as her self turn into a fragile Dependant emotional baby. It's crazy but it's all in Gods hands and I will never question that man Never! Everything happens for a reason!

Note to self also, Get in on the housing boom while you still can!

Real estate numbers are in from the first quarter of 2010, and oh boy are they good: 31% of home sales so far this year were foreclosures!
According to Reuters, the total number of home foreclosures in 2009 was up over 1,100 percent from 2006, and 2,500 percent from 2005.
There's Never Been a Better Time to Buy a Foreclosed Home

Look at the nation,

Look at the nation,
that's a crooked smile braces couldn't even straighten!
