I was going to blog more photos from my 3 week stay in Paris, but things have taken a turn for the worse. This morning, my grandfather was admitted into hospital.

Doctors have found a large tumor in his abdomen and have concluded that it’s Pancreatic Cancer. He’s getting an MRI scan tomorrow morning to determine the density of the tumor and to see if 100% it is.

His skin and eyes have turned yellow and he’s lost a shit load of weight since I last saw him before I went to Paris. I’m really worried but won’t know more until tomorrow afternoon :(

Mom is flying in from Paris tomorrow afternoon… enshalla it’s not cancer but all the signs are there and I’m scared to lose him, especially it being less than a year since his sister died of cancer as well.
