I told you recently about my little brother Sam, and his diagnosis of the not so good variety (stage 4 hodgkin's lymphoma). Things were finally settling down a little bit until my dad started feeling left out. So last week he went and got some equally not very good news. Stage 4 non-hodgkin's lymphoma (spread to the small intestine resulting in recent bowel resection - he's a lucky duck). My family is something of a hot mess right now, but if you know us at all, you know that it's times like these that we pull together seamlessly. Consider yourself warned that we are big and loud and rude and irreverent. It's how we cope. So if you want to read about our cancer adventures, this would be a good place to start. And now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
