My first blog! EEKK!!!

Hello all and welcome! This is the first time I have ever had a blog or posted in one so we will see how it goes. Just wanted to introduce myself and say hi. So i guess I'll say a little about myself, I'm a 25 year old medical student who is waiting for the results of my USMLE Step-1 exam. While waiting I am spending time with my fiance and his new puppy. Our wedding won't be for a few years because I want to be finished with school first.

I am currently staying at home and taking care of my grandma. She has lung cancer with metistasis to the brain. She is on hospice and they are saying she has maybe a week left. I've been taking care of her since November and can see that this is much better for her and know she isn't living the life she wants. I know she is ready and as horrible as it sounds I am ready because I know its what she wants. WOW I do feel better after getting that out, maybe there is something to this blogging thing. :-D

Welcome to the blog world!

I'm sorry to hear about your grandma. My dad died last year from lung cancer. It's a devastating diagnosis. In some ways, it was a relief when he died because he was in agony. Good luck and I'll keep you all in my thoughts.
