Well, that's that. I guess .6 lbs is better than nothing. It's been going up and down all week, though. I'm sick of seeing 173, can I please see 172 sometime soon? lol

So.... drum roll please....

For now, he is NOT being deployed. For now, for this second, for this day, he will not deploy. That is not to say that tomorrow could be different. For now, I will have my follicle scan appointment on the 20th and pray that he stays long enough for IUI#2 which will probably be around April 27th-ish. If they pull another fast one, I wont be surprised. But for now, he is home, he is safe, and he is not being deployed. :)

My grandfather has been in the hospital for the past 2 weeks. Since then, we have found out he has cancer in his lung, spine, and liver. A few days ago they did an MRI and found out he had several strokes since being in the hospital. He is being sent home on Saturday and will be cared for by hospice. The doctors gave him 6 weeks to live before he had his MRI. Since the MRI, and finding out about his strokes, I'm guessing it will be less than that. My family had stuck by his side and have been doing everything they can to make him comfortable and not in pain. I can't wait until he is able to go home to be in the comfort of his own space. I am praying that he passes peacefully and we are all beside him when his time comes. I am excited for him, that he will soon be meeting God and Jesus. I just pray for my grandmother and my own mother. My grandmother is taking it pretty well but as for my mother, she has been crying off an on for the past week and has missed a ton of work (they make her leave because she's been crying and can't handle working with her first graders). I am glad they made her leave. She needs to be with her father as much as she can before he goes. I know it will be a difficult transition, but life ends somewhere. We wont all be here forever on earth. We will get through this. I just ask that if you have read this far, to please pray for my family during this rough time.
