I guess life always has to throw us curve balls to keep us on our toes. For the last week or so I have been flying high because things seemed to have been turning around... Got a job, my FI and my family absolutely enjoyed one another and genuinely liked one another. Had a great bday weekend in Dallas a few days ago, and then today got the worst news ever. My third sister (my mom has five girls) just found out today that she has breast cancer, it has progressed a great deal. They have scheduled an emergency biopsy on Thursday (which was the first available slot) and when they get the results back it will be surgery and treatment. This is all happening so quickly. My sister sounded so dejected and down. I didnt know what to say to her. I wonder how would I feel if I had gotten that diagnosis. She is only 40 years old. I know this is going to be very difficult for my family but most of all for my mother. Only God knows the future and he knows how this is all going to turn out in the end. We can only pray that it turns out for the best. We lost a very close family friend two years ago to liver cancer, she was diagnosed at the end of December and was dead three months later. It was a very difficult time for all of us, especially her family. Saw how the treatments brought her too, how her life became and at the end it was, even though we didn't want it to be so, a relief to see her go because none of us wanted to see her go through the pain and agony we knew she was experiencing.
These things are very difficult. Thanks for listening guys. Prayer moves mountains!
