My mom is in liver failure. The chemotherapy and medication she's been taking on and off for 10 years, destroyed her body. There's nothing more doctor's can do. She's gonna have hospice service at her house, nurse will come once a week. She's doing ok right now, not in any pain or suffering, but it's a thing now.

It was such a good day that day too. It snowed in where I lived, and it hadn't done so since 1985, it was cool. I ordered some pizza, was watching Fraiser, and then I got the news.


Very sorry to hear that. I've been through what you are about to. Make her comfortable.

Thanks guys, I appreciate your words. The real unfortunate part is that my mom is in Arizona, and I'm in Texas. My brother and sister are there with her though. I had thought about visiting soon, but my mom urges me to stay put and stick to my plan of visiting in February. She says if she starts to feel any different, she will call me and get me on a plane.

That's how it was for us when my dad was going. My folks were in Oregon, I was in California, and I had a trip planned a couple of months later; he didn't want me to make a special trip up there, I think because that would have made him feel more like it was the end. Thank God I flew up when I did, though; he took a bad turn a couple of days before I was headed up. I arrived on a Sunday, and originally I was scheduled to fly back that Wednesday, but because he was so near the end, I cancelled my flight; he passed away that Friday, and was able to have my mother, myself and my wife (whom he loved like a daughter) in the room with him.

Not sure where I'm going with this, or if I even have a particular point, beyond: this is a tough thing, but you can deal with it, and, yeah, be ready to go at a moment's notice.

If you feel like you have eaten too much or just a bit clogged, put one tea bag in a water bottle and let it steep, then drink. Cleans out your system, try to drink it daily.

There is also Quinoa, that helps too. :D

^ You realize that tea is just a laxative, right? Doesn't help with weight loss at all.

Yes, it's just supposed to help get the bad stuff out of your system, then you eat the healthy things. :D

Jordan Vogt-Roberts might of been among those committing sexual harassment. Of all the hundreds if not thousands of directors or actors. Why did it have to be him!? :(

Even if true, at this point I'll just do the "Separate the art from the artists" because I ain't gonna let this ruin my enjoyment towards Kong: Skull Island and heck what he did is tame compared to someone say like Victor Salva. Still unnecessary though and shouldn't of done it either way. Overall if true I'm not happy with him unless he ends up apologizing and acknowledging his mistake.

Until then I'll stick with the "Innocent until proven guilty" until further notice.

Apparently you've never taken a laxative.

Let me tell you, weight is lost. :shock:

Our nearest neighbors/my surrogate grandparents are having a medical emergency. One of them apparently almost died (not the first time) and has to be taken to the emergency room. We went to help him get in the car and it was the worst I've ever seen him at, and we've seen him pretty close to dead before.
Please guys, they need prayers.

Just before Christmas I'm suffering from a little flu! Hopefully it won't be as bad tomorrow.

Not ruined by any means more of an annoyance but recently I decided to go all digital for my PS4 like I did with my Xbox over the summer. Well I saw they had a flash sale going on and quickly logged on to see if Godzilla on PS4 was on sale and it wasn't found on the PSN.

Come to find out it's now discontinued even though it was up on the PSN a few days ago I held off on it because it was still $59.99 so I was waiting for a sale. Now I have to go and rebuy a copy of the disc version unless it magically pops back up on the PSN. I'm hoping its just a glitch as I didn't notice anything about it getting delisted but then again it's not even showing up on Bandai Namco's website.

Sadly, don't think it's a glitch. My brother got a PS4 a couple of weeks ago and went to download it from the PSN Store, but it wouldn't allow him, even though it was still listed. We thought it was an error with the store at the time, but he got a physical copy anyway.

Well I contacted Sony and Bandai Namco to see what they say. I'll probably just end up rebuying the disc version down the line and hope with Godzilla 2 o Godzilla vs Kong they decide to reissue it digitally.
