...my Grandpa (grandpa Civis) is in the hospital right now with liver problems...
From what I understand, they're thinking it might be cancer.
We were with him this past weekend for Kaitlyn's graduation and for Grandma's birthday party, and he was feeling woozy and having trouble standing up... my dad claims he noticed Grandpa's skin looking a little bit yellow, which is definitely a sign of liver failure.
This is really scary. :(  I have a feeling I'm going to lose a few people this year... we already lost Grandma Beedon, and Grandpa Civis isn't in spectacular health to begin with, so liver failure could do a lot of damage... and Uncle Dave isn't healthy enough to make the 3 hour trip up here in June for Kaitlyn's open house... he's never been a healthy guy by any means, but he's also never been so unhealthy that he couldn't make the trip up here.  I'm not feeling very optimistic about any of this.

If you're the type to do such things, I'd appreciate some prayers on my grandpa's behalf.  I love him a lot... his death would hit the hardest for me out of any of my grandparents.

nothing nothing nothing

So... this week has been my one and only week of summer vacation, and I have done NOTHING to celebrate. :( 
I start school again on Monday.  My spring semester is BRUTAL.  but I'm hoping that it will turn out to be well worth it in the end.  I'm just glad that I only have to take biology for 6 weeks, as opposed to 16. :D
Right now I feel really dizzy and weird.  It's only 10pm but I am leaning towards going to bed pretty soon.
Tomorrow we're going to The Corner Bar for Kaitlyn's birthday (her birthday isn't actually until Monday, but yeah...)
MY birthday is a month from today!  Yay!
I really don't have anything exciting to say. 
This is going to be a very busy summer.  Kaitlyn, Allie and Jacob are all graduating.  Mike and Michelle are having a baby.  Grandma and Grandpa Willison are having their 60th wedding anniversary.  Grandma Civis is turning 70.  Most of these things are resulting in huge parties.
Crap.  I just realized that that means that my mom's mom was only 10 years old when my dad's parents got married.  I don't know why that is weird, but it is.
OH!  And superame7 will be home in TWO WEEKS! 


For my own sanity, because I need it all laid out in front of me like this.

...all of this leaves me with ONE MORE CLASS left to before I start student teaching.  One more class!!!  I couldn't possibly fit it in though, so it will have to wait until Summer of '09.
