It's been a rough couple of weeks for my family. Since I returned from New Hampshire my mother has taken a turn for the worse. She went for a pre-op exam before her skin graft surgery and they found a heart murmur and poor blood work. She was getting weaker each day. They hospitalized her, did some tests and diagnosed her with stage 4 colon cancer. I am so saddened that at 87 years old she had to go through the car accident trauma and now have to be hit with this news. Up until this point she was very healthy and active... she has never been on any medication, unlike my Dad who takes a bunch of different pills everyday. Needless to say the skin graft surgery was cancelled.
Roger is flying out of Anchorage today and will be in New Hampshire tomorrow. Of course now all I want to do is hop on a plane and head back there to be with everyone. The reality is, I have work to catch up on here and I need this weekend to digest everything and decide what is best.
On the home front it's been hard to be productive. My greatest accomplishment this week was throwing the parts for 7 casseroles. At least today I won't struggle with what to do... they will need to be put together!
