No easy way to put this: Mom has breast cancer, and has surgery scheduled for the 2nd of December.
I’d waited on saying anything until knowing [or at least strongly presuming] that Doug had talked with Mom and Dad. I certainly didn’t want him to learn this by reading my site.
Yes, I knew that this was a possibility, and yes, I didn’t say anything about it on purpose. And frankly, I probably won’t say much about it, really, but I do feel that my friends should know, and heck, IJSM is a better medium at distributing such information than many other media I could use for the task.
Your thoughts, concerns, and prayers will be appreciated by Mom, Dad, Doug, and me. If you just want to leave a little note, I think that would be cool. An email to Mom and Dad would probably also be cool, too.
As a family, we’ll soldier on. It’s what we do.
