the best laid plans...


...of mice and men often go awry.

 Isn't it funny when you think you know exactly how your day, week, or month are "supposed" to look like, and then you get smacked upside the head with a 2x4?

 My aunt. My healthy, 48 year old, ray of sunshine aunt, is very, very sick.  After not feeling well for about 3 weeks, and having some strange symptoms, she has been checked in to the hospital and we have received some very bad, serious news regarding the c-word.
 

Life, packing, showering, twittering....everything is taking a back seat. I am supposed to be with my family right now, to sit in the hospital room and tell stories and play scrabble...so that's what I'm going to do. And, I'm going to try and cope - as is everyone else around me.

Please say prayers, send positive thoughts, do whatever you can for this woman, because it's just absolutely mind boggling and we can use all of the support we can get.
