The Fight

Hey everybody,

So, I’ve been absent from the blog the past week or so due to a health crisis in my family.

My mom was diagnosed with ovarian cancer exactly 2 weeks ago, and she’s already begun the fight.

The doctor has a lot of confidence in his treatment plan, and my mom has made it well through 2 rounds of chemotherapy so far. Luckily, my dad’s workplace is helping out by giving him the chance to go with my mom for the treatment every week and by providing meals every day.

So far, it seems to be going well.

This has been a big health scare for all of us – my mom had little to no symptoms, no risk factors, and no family history.

It came out of nowhere and caught us all by surprise. Ovarian cancer is hard to catch in the early stages, and we never expected anything so serious to be wrong.

Please be diligent with your health care.

Happy Birthday, Jenny!

 
Today is my sister’s birthday!

She’s fabulous, funny, and now fifteen. I really can’t believe how old she’s getting – it still seems like only yesterday that we were bringing my new baby sister back from the hospital and showing her around her new home.

Happy birthday, Jenny – I love you so-o-o much! Wish we were together to celebrate today, but we’ll just have to make up for it with even more celebrating when I get back from Prague. : )
