A quest to make sense of it all. Or a sense to make a quest of it all.

Just got some bad news. I'm going to sit on the porch and chain smoke for awhile.

Mom took Granny to the specialist today. Her remaining kidney is operating at only 6%, down from 15% just a couple weeks ago. He says to be prepared, that it'll be any time now. Dialysis isn't an option, and Granny says she's ready, and has ordered a DNR. We knew this would come, probably this year, but it doesn't make it hurt any less.

I don't know what to say, so I'm reposting this:

Missed Opportunites and Love of Cake (12-29-09) *

*This is a piece I wrote about my granny's life, from her sad childhood to her complicated marriage. I'm ok with sharing it with those who are interested, but it's close to my heart and now that she's passed, I don't feel comfortable posting it publicly. Send me an e-mail if you'd like to read it. Thanks.
