Hospital Is Imminent; Michy is Eminent

So here she goes again with another post about her health. Seems all Michy ever talks about anymore is her health… well, it’s true.

Fortunately, I have good people around me who help med out, but I feel so guilty when I can’t do even the simplest things for myself. I can’t even go to the bathroom without help. That’s degrading in ways you can’t even imagine.
