    Thank you Paula.

    I was thinking of you, actually, before this. I just got a phone call from my best friend - her breast biopsy came back positive. Hers isn't advanced (she caught it at the earliest possible stage, from mammography), is milk duct and not tissue, and seems to have excellent outcomes, so she isn't scared witless, even tho she had a good hard cry and is now in "Let's deal with this NOW" mode. But still.

    Sigh. Humans should actually live 200 years like Vulcans... it takes us so long to get wise, and just as we get there, we get no time to hang out and really use and pass on our hard-won knowledge. Ptooey.
    We are not talking just jars. We are talking about cases of mason jars. Don't tell him I ratted him out but he didn't peel it all. He bought the cloves pre-peeled.

    My heart goes out to your friend. I know how getting that biopsy news is. But I think she has a good attitude and good friends obviously, so she will be able to beat this.

    Thanks Jac.

    Well, last night things went south in a big way. Dad tried to get out of bed and took a tumble onto the floor. I had to call the paramedics because I couldn't get him back into bed and was afraid of hurting him if I pushed or pulled on anything injured. He wasn't coherent enough to tell me what did or didn't hurt. So a night spent in the ER with backboards, c-spine collars, florescent lights, bad cafeteria coffee, all in a blur. I spent most of the night curled up on a spare gurney that was being "temporarily" stored in the hallway while they do some remodeling. They kept shooing me out of my Dad's ER room every time a new trauma victim would come in. One was a rollover vehicle accident survivor. Fucking hellish night. The only blessing is that my Dad is so far out of it mentally at this point that he doesn't really know or much care what is going on. I stumbled home at dawn, caught some sleep, ate, and then went back and have been there all day. He is just mumbling at this point. I got him to drink a few sips of water and some of that yucky Ensure stuff (get your calories any way you can when push comes to shove) but it's been four days now that he has hardly eaten at all.

    It feels weird to come home to an empty house. My sister is flying in tomorrow. The dog is bouncing up in my lap and trying to re-assure me that the house in not empty and that everything will be OK.

    I feel helpless - I'd love to come and support you, cook your dinner, put clean sheets on your bed. I know you're strong. I also know this is what you were preparing for when you came home from Kili. But that doesn't help now, and I'm just a stranger, thousands of miles away. All I can do is send love - and I do.
