Thank you all for your kind words yesterday.
Unfortunately, I have no news and won’t for awhile.
My grandma wasn’t able to have the biopsy yesterday after all, because she mistakenly had a glass of water.
I’m a little, okay more than a little, annoyed at the doctors for planning a fasting procedure for an 80+ year old woman at 2 p.m. on a 113 degree day.
When I called her yesterday she’d just gotten back from picking up some cookies for my grandpa (he has a crazy sweet tooth, it’s adorable) in the 113 degree heat! How could she go without water that long?
Also, she has low blood sugar, so making her fast that long shouldn’t be happening anyway. I hope the rescheduled biopsy is at a more reasonable hour.
From what I understand, it will probably be over a week after the biopsy before we’ll know the results so it could be two to three weeks. The SIL says they’ll know right away, but I’m not getting my hopes up for that. I’m just going to have to be patient and positive.
Today is her birthday, and it breaks my heart that she’s dealing with this worry when she should be celebrating.
My family may have a hard time expressing emotion, but I know we’re all united and ready to face whatever is coming for the most important woman in our lives. I know we would all gladly trade places with her if we could. All I want for her in the remaining years of her life is to suffer as little as possible.
I hate that I’m so far away, but I’ll be back home for Labor Day next month so I have that to look forward to.
Anyway, that will be all that I’ll say about this for now. I know it’s a huge bummer. Thanks again for all your support.
