Checking In

Gah I've been gone for a while. So many things going on. Skyler and I are both sick. Probably with H1N1 or what-have-you. I've been reading books like crazy, flying through novels, keeping my mind busy.

This week has been tough to far and I don't see it letting up anytime soon. Also my dad called me about a week or two ago and said his brother had a heart attack (he's only 53) and then yesterday my dad calls me again to say the same brother has a malignant tumor in his intestine. My aunt has cancer in her liver, pancreas and spleen. My dad only has one brother and one sister. That makes two out of three... My dad hasn't been to a doctor in.. well I can't remember him ever going to a doctor. Scary. And of course I'm worried because I know my aunt won't have much longer. Treatment options are dim, they can only treat one organ at a time and they're all pretty badly affected. I'm worried too now about losing my uncle. He has a young son too, he is only about 13. Sigh.

I'd write more but I feel horrible right now, my head is so stuffed up that I can't breathe or hear anything, and my throat is sore. Of course Skyler is sick as well so he woke me up every hour last night and then I had to work this morning. Oh and my boss today told me that next week is my last week as her work here found someone to replace her. They'll be leaving for Toronto in one week's time. Oh and there's this whole drama going on with C's family that I'd love to just forget about but C is in the very middle of it. I'm pretty sure his whole family is going to tear apart over it too. Which sucks, but the people involved are being less than civil and there's not much we can do.

WOW! Craziness. Just take care of yourself. Sometimes life just throws it all at us at once.

I wish there was something I could do to make things better for you. You always have so much going on.

I am so sorry to hear about both your aunt and uncle. That is so very unfortunate.

I hope you and Sky feel better soon. There's nothing worse than a sick baby and mama.

Hang in there.

(((hugs))) I hope things turn around for you. Maybe they found your uncle's tumor soon enough that he can make a full recovery.
