And now the bad news.... [Sep. 4th, 2007|01:24 pm]
While I was going to post earlier that my aunt had been diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer, I didn't get around to it. It was incredibly sudden, as ovarian cancer is VERY fast-paced, and often by the time anyone notices anything (especially in women past menopause), it's well past the early stages.

She just retired, and was looking forward to some time off, but ended up being on chemotherapy instead.

Unfortunately, to make matters speedier, she died yesterday from a blood clot... really far sooner than any of us expected.

I just heard from my cousin (her daughter) about it this afternoon and we're trying to get in touch with my mother who's off somewhere in Europe and pretty close to unreachable (they were in Hungary, but left and went to Vienna, then decided that they didn't want to go back to Hungary, so they went on to somewhere remote in Italy -- not sure WHERE they are now).

Humans are incredibly fragile creatures. How we ever dominated this planet is still somewhat of a mystery. I'm guessing relative longevity coupled with massive breeding.

Wow. I am very sorry. My Mom had stage 4+ ovarian cancer (they first thought it was colon cancer - how they those two confused?). you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. **hug**
