Great News: My grandma's surgery went very well. They were able to remove the tumor, but had to also remove a kidney. But they didn't have to remove anything else, which there was a definite possibility of happening. She was able to come home today and seems to be doing great. She was walking around and doing really well. It was a very fast growing tumor. On an x-ray done less than two weeks ago, the tumor was the size of a plum. When they removed it on Wednesday it was the size of a large grapefruit. Her doctor said that usually these types of tumors are the size of a football or a bowling ball by the time they are diagnosed. A BOWLING BALL!! We are so thankful that everything has gone so well up to date, and pray that it will continue to go well.
Self-Discovery: On my last post I made a comment about needing to diet again because I look so large in the picture. But yesterday I bought a new pair of jeans that fit really well and they are a size 6. And it's not just that particular pair of jeans. Everything I tried on in multiple stores were a size 6. That got me thinking; when did my brain start thinking that a size 6 large? I think I may have a distorted view of my weight and what "skinny" really is. And it only applies to me. I don't view or judge others by the same standards. I'm discriminating against myself. Does anyone else do this?
