I feel like I have seriously been Debbie Downer over here... but man... there's just so much sadness and suckiness going on in our family right now.
My cousin called me today and it looks like my aunt's cancer is terminal. They're trying chemotherapy on Friday or Saturday, but if she doesn't respond, they don't think she'll be able to handle another bout.
So, I've spent my lunch hour, and a few minutes after my workday, trying to find some cancer centers. Some hope. Northwestern University and the University of Chicago both have amazing medical schools, which have cancer centers. Maybe they can offer her some time? Maybe they can help her live long enough to see her grandchild be born in March? Maybe?
All this rambling is to say, I feel bad that I even share this stuff. I feel like I'm blogging just to blog. Then I realize it does make me feel better to just say it (in type) ... and to be able to think through and process the sadness. It makes me remember that I have hope.
