Did I mention that they have not told her yet?
My father, his brother and his sister are all going to see her in like a week and a half or so and they're going to explain it all to her then. For the time being, she's on some sort of pain management patch thing that gives her steady medication and can get other things as needed.
I'm shot the fuck out. I'm tired, I'm emotional, I'm fucking angry, and I'm just waiting... WAITING on one more thing to come and set me off. Of course, in just a couple of days I'll have gotten some more perspective, but for now I'll apologize beforehand for snapping at anyone I encounter over the next few days. Know now that I don't mean it, I'm just really not quite myself right now.
