Again, thanks for the kind thoughts guys. I appreciate it. We will survive.

My MIL was taken to palliative care last night. My wife and I had been angling for home care as my FIL's insurance will cover it but they didn't seem to want to do that. Why, I'm not sure. I think she would have been more comfortable at home. I don't think she will last long, which is a mercy at this point.

I just got some more details. It's...this one is really jarring and intense. Certainly not the person who I would have figured would be involved in the dope scene, much less inject cocaine and methamphetamine simultaneously.

She leaves behind a 9 year old son who lost his father years ago. Her parents are good folks, hopefully they can take him in.

So sad. I can't imagine you get yourself to that position without doing a lot of things you really didn't want to do, but just didn't feel you had control over.

15 years ago, this news would have been less surprising, but not by much.

Sometimes, all it takes is a short series of bad turns, and being around the wrong person at the wrong time, and there you are. According to the person who passed the information along, it she took a really long road down, but she did it at light speed.

Not in the same league, but our freezer packed up today. It was rammed with meat and we can't fit all of it into the freezer section of our fridge.

Thanks guys.

I left behind a lot of people when I left Denver, and what is really bothersome is, the handful who have gone since I left town were all people I would have been happy to go back to.

Drug overdoses and suicides have been a low rumbling constant theme in my life for 20 years now. I'm tired of it.

Noticed over the weekend that our little girl cat wasn't eating properly. She's had dental issues before so we took her into the vet this morning and she has what look like feline resorptive lesions on her two upper back teeth. They were concerned enough to admit her immediately and are operating this afternoon. They're also planning to do blood work, viral testing (to rule out FIV, FeLV and something else I can't remember the name of as underlying causes) and a gum biopsy. We'll have to pay at least £800 out of pocket today, but we should get it back from the insurance, along with the £250 we paid out of pocket for dental last time, as although dental isn't covered, it now looks like this is due to an underlying condition and so it all will be. "Be okay, Juniper!" vibes greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

She's home. Bit spaced out from the general and the pain killers. The extractions went well and her other teeth all look perfectly fine on x-rays. She's on antibiotics and painkillers for the next 2 weeks and we should have the results of all the tests in 10 days.

Thanks. All of this has been a lot to take and I'm just exhausted trying to keep everything together. My MIL is in palliative care and not expected to last much longer. My wife has been spending a lot of time there (as she should) so I've been carrying the household since we got back to town. One one hand, it's good as it acts as a distraction but I really haven't had a chance to decompress. I'm very worried about my sister and brother in law and I feel really helpless because there isn't a thing I can do to help them get through it.

Talked to my sister.

Her significant other had a cyst on his neck that I have been telling him to get removed for about a year. Well, he finally got off his ass and did so.

And it's cancerous. And it has now spread. They removed 12 lymph nodes already. And he doesn't want to treat it with radiation as suggested. He doesn' want to get a PET scan either. Doesn' believe in them. Just like vaccines, etc.....

Jesus.

Damn man. My father in law had cancer, went through chemo and radiation, had a large chunk of muscle removed from his neck, etc. Cancer free... well now he goes around telling people that he didn't need it, and that it could have been done naturally.

My wife's cousin (28) found out recently that she has cancer. It's one of the most treatable cancers out there, if you do the treatments... that have been developed over many years of research and testing, by scientists and medical professionals.... that is more focused and targeted than other kinds of chemo... that would give you about a 90% chance of beating it.... going the natural route.

Yeah, he's one of these conspiracy theory types with all kinds of fucked up stupid ideas about shit. I'm not a big fan of his at all(for a lot of reasons), but I don't wish this shit on anyone.

However, if I had a lump on my neck that kept growing an growing and basically became a fucking parasitic twin, I think I would have a biopsy done on it well before now. But hey, some people know more than the doctors and scientists. It seems to be working out for him pretty well right about now.

I just hope he wises the fuck up. I don't want to see my sister have to go through some horrible shit because he's an idiot. She loves him and I love her.

Fasted from Sunday night since I had my physical today. Had a pig out planned as a refeed to be followed by another fast day tomorrow. Got my food while hungry, probably able to finish half of it.
