I HAEV BEEN LAUHGIN GFOR ABUOT THRITY MINTUES SOMEON EHALP
A sour candy fell on the floor and this happened. She did this for about an hour
did she ever eat it?
No, she ended up giving up after that hour or so of barking at it..
I believe that ever american should at least watch this monologue from The Newsroom
and this is when I became a fan. it was interesting seeing how the news gets their news.
I’m reblogging this again because I love the message behind it and I think it needs to be passed on.
My mother let us choose. My brother and I decided that religion just wasn’t for us. She reacted neutrally and we were not baptised, nor did we make our first holy communion.
My sister chose religion. She woke my mum up every Said “its time to go to church”. She was baptised at 8 years old when she was able to do it for herself, read the relevant parts herself, and knew the choices she was making rather than it being made for her. And she was so happy. Religion should be a choice, and one that you are fully consenting and happy to make.
She’s now 12 and she still has the cross that was a gift at her baptism above her bed, and still reads her little bible from time to time. She doesn’t attend church any more, because she doesn’t feel that church is necessary to have a god.
I am an atheist, as I have stated. But I’m here for her if she ever wants to talk to me about her religion and all things associated.
That is how religion should be. For everyone.
So to get to 51% of the electorate the Republicans are going to have to pull some votes from previously offended demographics.
the greatest part of yesterdays episode. now wheres the womens part?
And that about sums it up.
being a fan of something and having a crap fandom is like standing in the middle of a party and everyone is loud, obnoxious and rude and occasionally spits acid in your face but your friends are there, the music is excellent, and there’s lots of food, and there’s great wifi so you don’t really wanna leave so you kind of just stand there going
Or when the fandom is so small and there’s hardly anyone to talk about it with.
This is my ten year old cousin Jayson, and on October 10, 2013, he lost his battle with cancer.
He was diagnosed with stage IV High Risk Neuroblastoma with MYCN Amplification on April 11th 2012.Jayson’s cancer was quite advanced by the time he was diagnosed with tumors in his right adrenal gland, tumors above his right kidney, tumors in and around his liver, cancer in his bone marrow and lesions on his hips, legs and a few other places. He came down with what was thought to be a common cold. He had a cough, runny nose, low grade temperature and his legs hurt. A week later his cough and runny nose had gone away but the low grade fever was still present and his leg pain was so severe that he had to use his hands to help lift his legs on to the sofa when he wanted to lay down. When my aunt noticed this, she took him straight to Urgent care and when they diagnosed an ear infection, she decided to take him to the ER where they diagnosed him with bronchitis. For the next month or she we took him to the ER several more times getting a different basic diagnosis each time and not alleviating Jayson’s pain whatsoever and his fever continued each day. His skin was pale and his eyes looked liked they were bruised. As Jayson’s mom, she knew something terrible was happening to him but she couldn’t get anyone in the medical field to help or pay attention for long enough to figure out what was really happening. Their luck changed when we took him to the ER and they finally ran some blood work. Jayson’s inflammation levels came back drastically over the normal rate and he was then diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis and he was given crutches and a prescription for Naproxen to help alleviate the pain from the arthritis. Over the next week Jayson’s condition rapidly got worse and when we followed up with our primary care physician he told us he would prefer to run his own blood panel because he wasn’t convinced they had diagnosed him properly. I am so thankful that he ran the blood work again. We got the call 3 days later telling us that we needed to take him to the Loma Linda University Medical Center ER with the lab work right away. Our doctor didn’t know what was going on with him but he knew it was beyond your average doctors capabilities and that his blood work wasn’t looking good. We did just that and we had him to the ER within an hour. This is when their lives changed forever. Over the next week Jayson went through a battery of testing, scans, blood work, bone marrow tests etc. and on April 11th 2012 they finally got Jayson’s true diagnosis Stage IV Neuroblastoma with MYCN Amplification. As a parent there aren’t very many things that could be worse than hearing that your youngest child (9 years old at the time) not only had one of the most aggressive forms of childhood cancer but it was so advanced that it had spread all throughout his bone marrow and was found all over his body.
Jayson then went on to do 7 rounds of chemotherapy, several surgical procedures including the removal of his right adrenal gland which is where his primary tumor was located, stem cell transplant, and 14 rounds of radiation.
Shortly after Jayson was diagnosed with cancer, his cat, Molly, was also diagnosed with cancer. She died shortly after being diagnosed. His fucking cat died of the same disease he was trying to fight! How can you have hope of beating a disease when you’ve watched it destroy someone you love?? I don’t know how Jayson managed to push through this, but he did.
Jayson went into remission on March 21st of 2013. He had fought a valiant battle with one of the most deadly forms of childhood cancer and he won!
Towards the middle of April, my aunt started noticing changes in Jayson’s body, his skin had turned pale again and his eyes darkened the way they were when he was first diagnosed. Although it was brought to the doctors attention all of Jayson’s scans continued to come up clean and cancer free. Jayson began to have pain in his back, chest and stomach towards the beginning of June and was hospitalized on June 12th after a CTSCAN showed a mass in his stomach. Jayson hadn’t been able to pass gas or stool which was due to the large intestine being blocked or swollen due to this mass in his stomach. During the first week into his hospital stay he had several more scans and X-rays that included an MIGB scan (Neuroblastoma absorbs MIGB allowing it to show up as bright spots on scans). My aunt sat in the chair while Jayson lay screaming on the scan table (his pain was so severe during this week in the hospital).
A couple hours later Jayson was sleeping in his hospital bed and my aunt was asleep on the parents bed while my uncle was doing work from the hospital room and 2 oncologists that had been working with Jayson for the past week came in and asked if they could speak with them outside of the room. When they left the room to speak with the doctors they told them that the MIGB scan had showed cancer in many area’s of Jayson’s body. He had new cancer that had grown up his spine, a tumor in his stomach, cancer in his chest, legs, and a new lesion on his skull and the cancer had already made it’s way back into his bone marrow.
Jayson only got 2 months of remission before his cancer came back and invaded his entire body. At this point in treatment there very few options as relapsed Neuroblastoma is considered incurable. Jayson relapsed so soon after stem cell transplant that they couldn’t try aggressive forms of chemo without risking the chance of organ failure and his body is so weak there is no way to operate on the mass in his stomach. Jayson’s doctor decided they should start off with 2 rounds of low dose chemo to try to get Jayson some pain relief and to figure out if his cancer would respond to chemo.
Jayson finished his 5 day course of chemo and when his latest scans came back it showed the cancer had gotten bigger and spread. Jayson’s cancer was now chemotherapy resistant and his body was too sick and too weak to continue on with any other forms of treatment. Jayson requested that they no longer search for new cures knowing that his body is too tired and that there is no chance of a cure at this stage. Jayson was put on hospice and continued to receive blood product and IV nutrition to help support his body so he could enjoy his last few days.
Over the last 15 months of treatment they have amassed over $20,000 in medical bills. Jayson has no fear as he heads in to this next phase of his life. He is not afraid of death because he knows he is going to heaven where there will be no more pain, his body will be strong and healthy again and he will feel more love and happiness than he’s ever known.
On October 10th 2013 at 12:07 A.M our precious little Jayson finally left this world on his own terms. He is now pain free and I’m sure he’s already been given a new body in heaven and that all of his family member and fellow children that earned their wings before him have welcomed him with open arms. Now that Jayson has passed we must ask a favor of all of you. My aunt and uncle started making his funeral arrangements a couple of months ago in which Jayson was very involved with. He got to choose the spot he would like to be buried. His goal was to also buy the two plots on either side of Jayson’s plot for my aunt and uncle when they pass. The plot’s are 6900.00 a piece. If you can please donate whatever you can afford little or small it still helps us. I thank you all for your constant support and uplifting words.
It would mean the world to me if you guys reblogged this. You don’t even have to donate, just get his story out there! Jayson thought it was the coolest thing ever that so many people took the time to learn about him and follow his story.
