postheadericon Life's Update!

Good Day Friends and Followers,

It has been quite some time since I have updated my blog and with tutorials piling up I thought it was time to update. I have been dealing with some real life issues thus the reason for my absence. My daughter is now married, as of December 3rd and I just recently found out that I am going to become a GRANDMA with the due date being October 3rd 2011 (maybe the new baby will be born on my birthday October 2nd... that would be cool)

My Mom was put in the hospital on Friday February 4th for what is called portal hypertension which resulted in gastric varices. Here is a short explanation of this condition:

Gastric varices
are dilated submucosal veins in the stomach, which can be a life-threatening cause of upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage. They are most commonly found in patients with portal hypertension, or elevated pressure in the portal vein system, which may be a complication of cirrhosis.

She will ultimately need to have a non invasive surgical procedure performed called TIPS (Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt). If you are interested in this procedure there is alot of information that can be googled.

Last week I got together with and old grammar school friend of mine who I had not seen in 20 years and found out that she had just had a heart attack and suffers from congestive heart failure and Saturday February 5th she under went a 5 way heart bypass where she was told she would only have a 20% chance of coming through.

Keeping in close contact with my friend I learned that her mom came through the bypass and is doing well. I hope to learn more in the very near future.

So this is what my life has consisted of. Just keep the prayers coming for all of my family and for my friend and her family.

Hugs and Love
Angel Wolf
