I was informed this morning that a good friend of mine has ovarian cancer. She'll be operated on tomorrow and then chemo. Not that it will cure it. Just let her live a little longer. It sucks rocks. She is one of the nicest people I know and I've known her for 20 years. I have always enjoyed visiting her and her husband on the 4th of July every year. When I get back from my trip I'm going to see if I can go visit. Luckily her sister lives next door and her daughter is not far. Hopefully her husband will be able to handle the situation, which isn't going to be easy for him as his short term memory is slipping away. That sucks, too.
On a lighter note, I leave today for my daughter's and tomorrow we leave on the first leg of our trip. It will be good to get away. If the cruise line is being generous and letting the wi-fi be free I'll write. Else I won't and you'll hear from me when I get back.
