Bad News

October 7, 2011

I’m trying not to dwell on it as it will drive me crazy, but a college friend got some really awful news today about her son, who’s between A and R’s ages.  The mysterious GI ailment that they couldn’t shake turned out not to be GI-related at all, but a brain tumor.

I can’t even imagine, and trying to imagine isn’t really healthy for me.  I’ve had a seriously ill child before, but there have only been about (literally) two minutes of my life total where I thought one of them might possibly not survive.  (This was A, Christmas of 2009 when she was 3 weeks old and stopped breathing in the emergency room).

Aside from that, I don’t want to talk about it.  I’m sending her prayers and good thoughts, and once things calm down for her a bit, hopefully a care package.
