Short and Sweet

Let me start by saying, my grammy is ok for now. She does have a DVT in her jugular, but the doctor says its stable. Unfortunately, there may be a problem with the lymphnodes in her neck. She has to have another CT that will include her chest. They are worried she has a lymphoma in her chest ... which means bad, bad things if it's the case.

So, on to other things not quite as worrying or depressing. Today, we leave for NH and Boston ..... that would Nick, Tori, Kris and I. Now .... I am excited about the trip and a little leary. Why am I leary? Cuz every time I talk to Nick, she has another store or outlet we need to go to ... I worry that we are going to have to leave someone behind so there is room for everything.

We are gone until Wednesday ... we come home that morning with a quick stop at the Christmas Tree Store ... can't wait! Have a great weekend everybody and we'll see you next week with lots of interesting pics!

I get a call from Mum yesterday afternoon. Grammy had been down for a CT yesterday since she has been having "spells" again. They were home for two hours after the CT when they got a call from the hospital. It's imperative that Grammy has an ultrasound today ... as she has a DVT in her jugular.

For those of you who don't know, DVT is deep vein thrombosis ... which is a blood clot. Did you know that blood clots kill more people each year than AIDS and breast cancer combined? Lovely. So, on top of everything else I am dealing with, I am now stressing that my grandmother, my last living grandparent, is going to stroke out.
