Edie has liver disease

So Edie has lost 14 lbs in like 3 months. We got her in to see the doctor and he saw all sorts of yellow tones in her ear, eye, mouth which indicated liver problems. Unfortunately the bloodwork supported this, and today's sonogram validated what everyone suspected.

Either Edie has an infection that is upsetting her liver, gall bladder and small intestine... or she has cancer. She's going to go on 4 medications soon to try and combat an infection. Prognosis was: either she will recover and gain weight again... or she won't recover at all.

The more it changes, the more it changes, the more ...

Sorry for dropping off the planet; I've been busy. My car got broken into and my stereo stolen. Came home that same night to find my iMac was dead. I still don't have it back from the repair shop and that's been painful. Rain has acerbated the problems with our roof here in San Jose, and created a torrent in the hallway of the house in SF. Edie has liver disease.

I feel like I'm trying to bail out a boat while monster waves are smashing into it.

The only good news is that I've met every delivery deadline in the new book, and I'm actually planning to wrap it up and send off the final chapter tomorrow night, a full week ahead of schedule. How have I accomplished this? Nights! I can sleep when I'm dead.
