Quick Update

My harddrive crashed at home, so I haven't had a computer in over a week! (sigh)

Just a few quick little updates for ya...

I HAVE A NEW JOB!!!! Everybody say "WOO HOO!!" XD

I started at AMG yesterday. Sooo happy! No more psycho boss!!! WHEEEEEEE!

Ok, so now the bad news.
My mom came home on Friday. She was enrolled back into hospice. They came out yesterday and changed her status to "Active"... which means she is actively dieing. I don't know how long she will last, but I don't think it will be very long. She hasn't really eaten in days (when she came home on Friday she weighed 85lbs!) and she really isn't drinking anything.

Hospice has taken her off all her medications except 3: morphine, a drug for congestion, and a drug to ease "restlessness".

So that's whats going on right now. Probably won't blog for awhile. :(

I'm so sorry. I'll be thinking of you and your family. Also, add me to the list of "if there's anything I can do."
