i am in fear: i am becoming *that* kind of blogger. you know, the kind that only post when they are in a crisis?
not really a crisis, per se, but the last couple of weeks have been challenging -- my mother was diagnosed with NSCLC - lung cancer - and we are unsure of what her "staging" is but we will know more next week after her PET scan.
i remember blogging when she was ill four years ago. i think i posted more random stuff on my other blog (poetry and such), but this is just to put it out there and get it off my chest for a bit.
also - i tried to quit smoking this week. did not go well. i will try again on december 3, for that is my "sobriety" birthday (3 years!!) so i figured it'd keep it simple when it came to remembering. i found a really cool online community who has a bunch of good advice for this girl. i love advice (as some of you well know).
so if you remember, please pray for Patricia. she is a dear one. we are heading to my brother's house for thanksgiving this year, which is a little bit more than poignant to me than it has ever been before.
