I'll cut to the chase. After a health scare with my father was resolved in December, my mom was diagnosed with cancer in January. She was immediately hospitalized and received her first chemotherapy treatment. She has a form of lymphoma which, they say, is easily cured. She responded well to the chemo, but she has had some problems since then. The outlook is good, but we are all worn out. Say some prayers, light a candle, think positive thoughts.
