It's been quiet around here for a little bit. Lots going on... nothing good, I'm afraid. If you're on my Facebook page, odds are good that you've already heard the news. If not, I'll go ahead and lay it out here.
A few weeks ago, my dad took a fall and got scratched up and cracked a rib for his trouble. He went to the hospital, got x rays and all that fun stuff. Then there was a discovery (a pretty shitty one, I might add). Something else showed up in the x ray... in his left lung. As it turns out, it is lung cancer. After visiting a specialist, they also determined that there is another tumor in his brain.
That's the bad news.
The good news in this big ol' shit sandwich is that both are small and can be easily removed. Hearing that didn't stop the worry, but it did ease it off.
Naturally he feels like hell, but we have a plan of attack and are just taking things one step at a time.
Thus my absence on damn near everything.
For those of you who've sent well wishes and shown support in some way, we both thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
I'll be in touch and update when I'm able to do so. Until then, my friends.
