But wait a minute, something's wrong

Yes, something's wrong.

I cannot say, it is to protect a family member's medical privacy. It is not the family member referred to here: www.sparkpeople.c

ndividual.asp?blog_id=1172272
That particular person recently had a good checkup, to our family's great relief.

So it is another one, and the reason for the seemingly incongruous song is because that person is overseas, yes, in Italy. It's doubly hard, to be so remote, and so worried and so distracted and, well, you know the drill. Of course what I am feeling is nothing compared to, compared to ....

It's been a few days I've known about this, and it's been reflected in my status updates, if you've been watching. Today, in the interests of somewhat further disclosure, is a better day, the best so far, with some encouraging news. Small progress, and there will be small progress, only small stuff, for a long time. It'll all come in its own sweet time, no matter how much anyone wants it to happen faster. Sound familiar?

Don't know if we'll go there. Might, might not, it depends on what happens.
Sorry if I'm distracted. It is for, well, obvious reasons, even if I'm being overly vague here, know that I appreciate you all.

Thank you for listening.

    First off, thank you all, and if I don't thank you individually it's nothing personal -- it's just that details right now are escaping me. My mother called me today, and wanted to know if we would be going over there and the answer was, uh, probably not. I just don't see us as being any sort of a help and, in fact, as much more of a burden. We don't speak the language, my husband doesn't drive and frankly I have little desire to drive in Italy. I just see us as being, well, no good for the situation. So ... we wait for tidbits of information. Fortunately those tidbits have turned a bit more positive lately.

    So I thank you all for your good vibes. SP mojo is strong.

    Good luck -- I have a friend going through some really serious medical problems, so I understand completely. Sometimes there's nothing you can do, but keep them in your thoughts and wait... My friend is doing better little by little, I hope your family member comes through too...

    You're welcome! Do this as often as you like. That's what it's for. The blog benefits us all. The more honest you are and the more you use it to tell us what's up (in whatever vague or specific ways you want), the more of a benefit it is for us.

    I send you support.
