Hello and big hugs to all of you. I have not been able to check in much in the past couple weeks, and I sure do miss everyone! I wish that I could tell you I have been on an exotic vacation somewhere, but no such luck! The man who I think of as a second father....is suffering with lymphoma, (non-hodgekins). He actualy was diagnosed with it right after dad died, back in April. He has been having so many problems and such...it has been really hard. Back in the Summer I was taking him to his chemo treatments at the local hospital...sitting in the same chair as my father did, even seeing the same oncologist! His chemo treatments are now 96 hours long at a larger hospital up in DC. The tumor is not responding. Tomorrow he goes in for a CT and then they will see what happens from there. I am asking for your prayers, PLEASE. He is onnly 56 years old, a grandpa and just one of the kindest, dearest men you would ever meet. He was there for us when my dad went through all that he did with his pancreatic cancer....never imagining that cancer would invade his life. It will be 6 months on Oct 1st that my father died...hard to believe, the pain is still so fresh. I will try and check in more often and will continue to pray for all of you. You are ALL always in my thoughts and in my heart. Thanks, all my love and big hugs!!! Lori
