This day could not have been any worse for my family and my self.

First, I found out that my grandpa, who is 88 years old, is in the hospital with something that is not a good thing for his age. He had a test done today that showed some good and bad things. I'm not going to share the details because its personal matters. Anyways, he is going to have more test done tomorrow to see if anything else is wrong. Hopefully he will be fine. I was never really "close" with my grandpa, partially because he only speaks Spanish, and I only know some words in Spanish. He also happens to live in Florida, and I live in Illinois so we don't see my grandparents that often.

To add to a bad day, we found out that our toilet in our upstairs bathroom has been leaking underneath the floor a couple of weeks now and there is a bunch of "black mold" as the plumber said in our den ceiling. So its now costing us A LOT of money to have a new toilet put in a to patch up the GIANT whole in our ceiling.

All of this has made my parents very annoyed and sad because its a lot of money to be spending especially since my brother will be staring college next fall(2009).

The illness of my grandpa has especially put a toll on my mom. I am always asking if I can help her in any way and she also says "no, but thanks for asking." I'm just trying to do as much as I possibly can to help out my family.

One last piece of bad news I found out today was that my Aunt Nubia, who takes care of my grandparents down in Florida , might not be able to come in July because of my grandpa. But, if she can't, I will fully understand her reason.

The only good thing that came from today was that we found out the the leak in the ceiling was caused by he toilet and not by our shower. So that means for the last day of drivers ed, I can use the regular shower!!(instead of my parents bathroom) Trust me, it is a very good thing.

I am just praying that things turn for the better and that my family starts being "happy" again.
