This post will explain WHY I've been MIA (again!) these past weeks. One of my new year's resolution is to post at least two blogs per week but I totally ruined it and here's why...
Four weeks ago (I think...can't remember the exact date, sorry) I caught the flu and I was down for 3 days. When I thought I was okay already, I went back to work for just a day then I was down again for a couple of days because of congestive sinusitis. Believe me, it's the worst illness ever because I have chronic headache. I was on round the clock pain reliever because if I don't take pain killers 3x a day, I will get a terrible headache again. Congestive sinusitis is where a lot of fluids are stuck in your sinuses and won't get out in the form of colds. There are times I just wish I had runny noses just so the pain would go away.
Anyway, just last week, when I am still not totally okay, I needed to go back and forth to the hospital because my dad got vertigo (he's okay now and he is already off-road racing again at the moment) and my grandpa has already decided to go have his colo-rectal tumor surgically removed. I have been waiting for this decision since June and I am so happy that he did push through with it this time. I am just worried that we waited for a long time because the cancer cells have already stayed in his body for at least a year (his bleeding symptoms started first quarter of 2011) and the chance of migrating to other organs are higher now. We are still waiting for the biopsy result and I am crossing my fingers and praying hard that there were no spread and the enlarged lymph nodes they got were not malignant like the tumor itself.
So now, I am still going back and forth to the hospital to help my mom take care of my grandpa and also on my spare time, studying for my licensing exam for SEC. I hope I can pass it in one take only.
I am hoping I can post a follow up blog soon after this. Thank you so much for your continues support! ^_^
