My Dad stopped by the shop at closing today and dropped a bomb on me.
My sister that just visited from CA a week or so ago has been diagnosed with cervical cancer.
She'd had a physical and a biopsy just before the trip and got the results after getting back. I put a call in, but no doubt she and her family are very occupied right now.
Man, I just can't believe it. It was such a nice visit too. Her kids are really cool, we spent an afternoon going through old family photos and laughing, and even talked about her moving out here and working at the shop once I buy it.
No, it's not over, but apparently she'll be starting chemo soon, so it's serious enough I'm very concerned and upset. I'll have to see if there's anything I can do to help once she calls back.
