my current situation
okay so monday night as i was preparing my stuff for the DNA evoution rail jam taking place on tuesday my dad calls me and says i have to leave for wisconsin in about an hour, "start packing your shit" were his words. I know this is no good considering i live in ohio and all my relatives live in wisconsin which include my grandpa who is very sick. multiple myeloma, something i would never wish on anyone. my grandpa has been battling it for about 7 years. the usual time a person lives with the disease is 3 years before they die. oh yeah and heres a sort of definition of it
-type of cancer of plasma cells which are immune system cells in bone marrow that produce antibodies. Myeloma is regarded as incurable, but remissions may be induced with steroids, chemotherapy, thalidomide and stem cell transplants
he has already had 2 bone marrow transplants, so hes already met the max. its kind of sad because i asked my dad how long we'd be up here and he pretty much told me flat out...... he didnt know. its pretty much going to be until he dies or beats it which if you read above, its incurable. my mom has dealt with many deaths in her family due to cancer [my parents are divorced so my dads here my moms at home] and right before i left on monday night my mom was there to tell me its alright, just dont cry to much, and that god always takes the good ones........ he was a teacher, a carpenter, a painter, a handyman, an intelligent, a giver, a chef, and most of all the greatest man you've ever met.
the first day i was here i spent 7 hours in the hospital. they brought him home yesterday evening so that he would be more comfortable. he cant talk, he cant swallow, he cant feed himself, he cant use the restroom with like 3 people helping him. its so sad to see what sickness does to a person. when he got home i showed him my box i made in shop class, and you can hear a breath of "wow, beautiful" i just would like you all to think positive and let him keep his senses and great mind as long as possible
