Gone for a While
Thursday, March 20, 2014
I didn't want to vanish completely with no explanation, but I don't expect to be on SP much if at all for the foreseeable future. My husband has a large kidney tumor, and we are in all-hands-on-deck emergency mode, while we try to find him the right doctors, arrange for the surgery to take out the kidney and associated adrenal gland, find out if it has spread yet, and so on and so forth.
Also, in a bit of epic timing, I fractured my foot yesterday, and am currently not allowed to put any weight on it at all. As you might imagine, this is complicating the running around trying to take care of medical stuff with my husband thing.
Okinawa is up in the air - I haven't cancelled yet, but I may have to. We've been through a whirlwind of tests and scans over the last week. We start getting results back next week, and we get to find out if this is a scary, but ultimately manageable problem, or an upending of our lives for the foreseeable future. Wish us luck, and all the best to all of you - I hope your 2014 is going far better than ours!
