I haven't been on in a while. My Uncle is in the hospital again and he's very weak. They've finally diagnosed the problem. It's called Gastroparesis. Probably during his radiation something was damaged and his stomach isn't emptying properly now. Leaving food undigested and the stomach filling up. Luckily though, this is my sisters' spring break so they can be here and even though the family all has a stomach virus, we have a chance to disinfect before he comes home. I lost some weight from this stomach virus but not as much as my dad. He's been sick for almost a week and in the last 2 days he lost over 20 lbs. My sister and I are starting to feel better but he still feels pretty sick. It stinks that it hit him hardest of all because he already has health issues but maybe that's why it hit him so hard. This March might be coming in like a lion but things are bound to get better and hopefully we can march out like a lamb.
