I enjoy spending time with our Grandfatherrents, especially knowing they’re not going to be here forever.
- They both have a slew of health complications, ranging from arthritis to digestive disorders.
Thankfully they both see absolutely fantastic nurses that keep an eye on any changes to their conditions. My Grandfatherrents are asked to undergo a number of tests throughout the year from random blood as well as urine scans to many kinds of imaging. I was relieved that they’re both cancer-free after having 2 separate cases of cancer about 10 years apart from one another. It started when our Grandfather was tested with prostate cancer when I was just a baby. My parents were upset that she was too far along with the cancer to respond to treatment, but now our Grandfather is 30 years into remission from prostate cancer. Then our Grandma was tested with breast cancer a decade later which gave us all a fright at the time. Thankfully she responded absolutely well to cancer treatment like our Grandfather as well as she’s also in remission at this point. The worst chronic health problem that plagues them both is the joint as well as muscle pain from their extreme arthritis. But lately they’ve been getting a lot of relief from the CBD salves that were advocated to them by one of their physicians. After using the CBD salves yearly, they’re experiencing a lot less muscle as well as joint pain. They also consume CBD edibles so they can get general pain relief throughout their bodies as well as the targeted pain relief they receive from the CBD salves. It’s amazing to see all of these CBD products available legally in this country these days.
