I know my writing has been less than steady lately, and I wanted to give you guys a head's up as to what's happening.
Right around Thanksgiving we received some rather scary news about my mom. Some of you know that my dad passed away from cancer about 7 years ago now...well, looks like the fates decided that our family would get one more challenge. Mom has Stage 4 colon cancer that's moved into her lungs.
Thankfully my mom's a fighter, and we're looking at our options. Thursday night we had a terrible scare with a seizure. As if the colon and lungs weren't bad enough, the mets have now moved into her brain. Right now, the only option we have is to fight the brain tumors-yes, multiples-and see where we go from there.
I'm not posting for sympathy, though I will take prayers from anywhere I can. But writing is and will always continue to be an outlet for me. With all that's happening, it just might not be a very steady outlet. I know you guys will understand, but I did want to at least give you a head's up as to why I'm absent from time to time.
