A note from Momx2's assistant

Momx2 wanted me ahem, her personal assistant that you all wish you had to assure all of you she has NOT, I repeat NOT, dropped off the side of the Earth.

Unfortunately, Momx2's family has been struck again by cancer. The Salesman's father has had bone cancer for quite sometime, and recently has taken a turn for the worst. A couple years ago, the doctors replace his pelvis and upper thigh bone with a titanium rod and within another year had to remove more of the bone in his leg and replace that as well. The type of tumor he has is called Chondrosarcoma and although can be treated, sort of, it is not uncommon for it to mestastasize in the lungs and lymph nodes. We are afraid that we have reached that stage. His lymph nodes are enlarged and they have found a few spots in his lungs. The x-rays and mri SEEM to indicate that the spots may only be blood clots and that perhaps the lymph nodes are as a result of the excruciating pain that he is currently in. We should have results for the 40gagillion tests they ran earlier this week on Wed or Thursday. We are just praying for something positive, whatever God decides that should be. The Salesman has only been home 2 days out of the last 2 weeks and is not due to return home again until next Sunday. Needless to say, Momx2 is quite stressed out.

On a lighter note, CG has recently made both the Competition cheering and the Varsity cheering teams at school, and as team mom, Momx2 has been busy meeting with coaches, other parents etc. to try and get ready for the last year of cheering.

So to all you bloggers out there, that might be missing Momx2, rest assured, she is still around.
Although she is not sure when her blog became written by a personal assistant that she must be getting for free, because she dang sure ain't paying her.

Momx2's personal assistant who, as previously stated, ain't gettin' paid!

I'm so sorry to hear all of it, Momx2. The pain part, especially. I hope you can find a pain management specialist near you, regardless of the cause. I hear they are lifesavers.

Thinking of you!

This bad news is just heartbreaking. I pray that he gets some positive news this week and that his pain can be controlled.
When your assistant is done, can she/he come over and help me out.

Let us know when you have some news.

It surely has been a rough journey for you all. Sorry that he is suffering and that the process of not knowing takes so long.

Congrats to your daughter, though. What a proud mom you must be :)
