A Brief Update

Since my last post, my mother has gotten sick and school really picked up so those are my two excuses.

In a nutshell, my mom was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer in late January and had a radical mastectomy in early/mid February. She is currently recovering. We just found out on Thursday that there's a little bit of cancer left in only one of her lymph nodes which the doctor seems to think the Chemo will wipe out. She'll be starting chemo within a few weeks I think - she finds out today.

School has been a lot of work. It's not bad at all, but it's a hell of a lot of reading and it took me a few weeks to find my stride. I have not opened a book for leisure since Geisha and I look forward to the end of the semester to read a book for fun, preferably outside.

Other than that, all is well. We had gorgeous weather over the weekend and I really enjoyed it.

I can definitely relate to not having read a book for leisure in a while and longing for the sunshine. Hang in there! -Kristin
