It's been a few weeks since I posted anything. I'm still dealing with Dad's cancer stuff. Since the last post, he's had a biopsy, a PICC line inserted, one round of chemotherapy (they hit him with 3 powerful drugs) and he got to go back home. The biopsy revealed more bad news. We knew he had a golf-ball sized tumor on his pancreas from a CT scan. The same scan showed spots on his liver. The biopsy of one of the liver spots tested positive for cancer. It appears to be a metastasis from the pancreas. He goes back to MD Anderson on Tuesday to meet with the doctor on Wednesday and have more chemo. Unfortunately, I won't be able to go help him this time. The school year is winding down and every day counts more and more as the kids get ready for AP testing in a month as well as SAT II tests in two months. Luckily, I teach in a private school which doesn't have to conform to the ridiculousness of the state's idiotic demands on passing standardized tests every 6 weeks, just to prove I can teach and the kids are learning. Anyway, I've done almost nothing to prepare for any games. I have been blessed with good friends who run good, distracting, games for me. So, unfortunately, this little blog may have to go into hibernation until life settles down again. Sorry. I'll write when I can.
