i'm just going to stop giving updates with regard to how better or worse things are going...it's soooo roller coaster right now. tip for all you: if you drink a lot of grape juice at work? make sure that you always have a spare shirt around. especially if you plan on setting down the can on the corner of the keyboard and then crushing the half full can in your hand as you scramble to catch it. also, don't allow the juice to sit on the wall too long before cleaning it or it *will* look like a crime scene in no time.
