An Interesting Project and Some Answer

So I meant to post this on Friday but I kind of forgot, ahahaha!
Anyway, after being sick for nearly a week with God knows what, I came in to work last Friday to finish what I deemed an interesting project. I had to look for grant opportunities for an organization called Presbyterian Senior Services that was losing a lot of money this year and was in my congressman's district. They do some great work where they provide grandparents who are raising grandchildren with a home, counseling and educational programming. For a variety of reasons these children are unable to be taken care of by their own parents and so their grandparents have stepped in to take care of them.

Needless to say, I think I found them some possible funding. Let's keep our fingers crossed! Our senior citizens and children are among the most vulnerable and we need to help them!

Check them out!

I also went to a Gastro Intestinal specialist in order to figure out what was going on with my digestion and I am glad I went. Apparently, I am just experiencing what tends to happen to some people after having their gallbladder taken out. My liver is still producing bile but doesn't realize that hey - there's no gallbladder there to store it! Anyhow, the specialist went on to explain how surgeons don't usually like to talk about the what ifs or to deal with possible issues. The surgeon just told me that everything would be back to normal but that was a total lie. There is no way you are going to be okay just like that when an organ has been removed. On the upside, by going to a specialist I was able to obtain a treatment that seems to be working well. The only downside is that I will probably be drinking this stuff on and off for the rest of my life. It's alright, it's like you're on a special diet and then you are not, and then you are and so forth...haha... In all seriousness, I am just happy to be alive and to have such a simple treatment to deal with this. There are worst things in life and this is definitely not so bad.
