Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

She is doing a little better every day...little is the key word here. She is eating a little better but Inklings says that is because her daughters are doing the cooking so she is trying not to insult them so she eats a little.

The doctors said it was going to take a month for her to feel better and it looks like that will be true. She can't start chemo until she is quite a bit better. If I remember correctly Inklings said she is taking her south on the 30th to see the Doctors.....can't remember if that is the right date or not but I believe that is what she said.

It is amazing to me to see how she went from the pillar of strength to as sick as she is now in just a few short weeks. I for one am really happy she went south to see the doctor - if not for that we would have buried her this week.

well it doesn't surprise me because my other grandma had the same thing happen to her a few years ago when they discovered she had colon cancer, it just really takes a toll on someone who is older - she did get better again though so I know grandma will too, I feel bad that she's feeling so puny though, poor grandma!!
