Okay, those that read the last post- THANK YOU!!! I am so thankful of all your encouraging words…sweet words…and support. That is so very sweet of you all.
I am surprised at how many fair skinned, blue eyed people are out there!! 🙂
My friend is doing as would be expected. The viewing was last night- well, it was more a wake b/c the casket was closed. (Phew) The graveside service/burial was today- and boy was it a doozy day for it. I didn’t go b/c I was working, but it was a soaker here today. The sky was crying.
Okay. So I get a phone call from my sister and she left a voicemail “call me as soon as you get a minute”. Crap. The last time she did this I do believe she was pregnant…given that she has had a tubal/way past having children/etc. I really didn’t think that is what it was.
I call, and she tells me to check my email b/c she can’t talk about it b/c the kids are nearby.
I check my email. In it she prefaces with “Don’t Tell ANYONE in the family yet what I am about to tell you” Humm..
Then she tells me she needs me to meet her in Rochester, MN b/c she has to go to the Mayo Clinic b/c she has been diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma.
She doesn’t want me to tell my mom/bros/etc. b/c we are still reeling from my aunt getting diagnosed with metastatic (I assume) cancer.
Personally I wish she would tell my mom- but I will respect her wishes. She has a consult on the 10th of Sept, and removal scheduled for the 11th. Okay- so for those in the know…I have people coming in from out of state for a beach weekend/beer festival that weekend. I also am supposed to be closing on my house on Sept. 15th.
She told me if I can’t come, that she would go ahead and tell Mom, and she if she can come up. I am NOT going to do that b/c I don’t care if it was my freaking wedding. I would postpone it to go be with my sister. I can see my friends another time. This is my SISTER!!!
As far as my house- my husband can sign the papers himself if for some reason I get stuck up there. I don’t care. That is only a house- This is my SISTER!
I have to talk it over with Kingman– check out the work situation, and get a ticket.
Her husband is having to stay with the kids in their home town (7 or so hours from the Mayo Clinic) The people they were thinking of watching the kids/dog/cat are going to Alaska for 2 weeks.
Sigh. What complicates matters is that my mother was going to come down for the beer festival…um. I can’t just disappear for the weekend when my mom KNOWS I have people (and HER) coming into town. Duh. Then I would HAVE to tell her regardless.
I just have to find out now if she is coming down…my mom I mean…
For the 3 that know me IRL– YOU DON’T KNOW ANY OF THIS!!
I am so tired (have slept about 3-4 hours) a night for the last week for various reasons (mainly stress, and heat lightening at 2am)…and I am exhausted
Work sucked today. 14 people waiting when we opened to the door. Two nurses out because of the flu. One quit.
I am ambivalent about the upcoming H1N1 vaccine. Scared of Guillian-Barre- three shots is a lot of shots to get….
Scared shitless of skin cancer- this is my SISTER!!!
Now i have to go to a Krewe meeting for our upcoming CANCER WALK (which I have raised about 400 bucks for thank you very much! :).
I just hope I don’t cry.
LOVE YOU ALL!!!
Wear your damn sunscreen. I don’t care if it is February. For cripes sake JUST DO IT! I will breakdown if one more person in my life get cancer.
