I’ve been feeling pretty decent the past few weeks. I had to temporarily stop taking my treatments because my blood levels were “critically low”, whatever that means. It sure didn’t sound like fun! They were threatening to hospitalize me for blood transfusions! All I know is, I was very, very sick. It seemed like it took about 3 weeks though before the effects started to really wear off and I started feeling “normal” again. Yay! I’ve even gone back to doing some web work!
Finally, someone has come out and described just how nasty this stuff really is. Steven Tyler of Aerosmith admitted to going thru the same therapy in which he claims “it about killed me”. Read it here for those that haven’t seen it yet. At the moment, I’m waiting for the results of a blood sample test to see if the therapy was actually working. If it was working then I’ll be going back on it again to finish it out. If not, then there’s no point in continuing. I’ll know in a few days! Keep your fingers crossed!
We got some really bad news yesterday, my 93 yr. old grandma fell and broke her hip. She’s now in the hospital, I’ll be going to visit her this afternoon. She’s been very frail and not doing so well. They have her in traction at the moment, we’re still waiting on the doctor’s conclusions about what can be done to help her heal up. My mom and myself have a very bad feeling that this may be the beginning of the end for her. She’ll probably be laid up for weeks and in her weakened condition it’s going to be extremely difficult for her to regain her strength. Hopefully she will snap back as she has done so many times in the past! I really love and admire that lady!
Update! Sunday night. My grandma was operated on today and she is now recovering in ICU. Her vitals are looking good and the operation was relatively minor. They made a small incision and pinned the break and it looks like she’ll be fine! Good news! yay!
I was having a little fun with Photoshop this morning and I modified a few images that I thought were entertaining, enjoy! Here’s the rest of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez speech before the U.N. General Assembly in which he called Prez. Bush the “devil” and he could still smell the sulphur in the air. Apparently, they didn’t do full coverage on the news, why am I not surprised? Here’s some of the stuff the media left out!
Have a good weekend everyone!!
