Of family and cancer (TW: cancer)

I just learned my dad's older brother has one brain and two lung tumors (one in each lung). He's in his late 60s, but that is still so young these days, and he seemed so young, still. Plus my dad died last August, so this is that much harder, because I miss my dad so much, and now my uncle is sick.

We don't have a firm care plan in place yet. He is getting tests done today to see if any of it is operable. He went into the ER yesterday with sudden sharp blindingly debilitating headaches.


Did I mention he is 1500 miles away and I'm totally broke?

Today sucks. Sigh.

Thanks for listening.
