Enough already

Haven't the last few months been hard enough? Earl ( who is basically my Grandpa he has been with my Grandma since before I was born) was diagnosed with cancer yesterday. The surgeon said it's probably not one they can remove, so he will meet with his regular doctor later this week to look at other forms of treatment. He is 87 and if orneriness counted for physical strength he could beat anything. I'm not sure that it does though. I really worry about Grandma, as much as she gets irritated with Earl and his orneriness, I don't think she'll know what to do with herself when he is gone some day. It makes me think more about losing Mom and Grandma someday and that scares me too.

Sorry to hear about Earl. Let us know what the Dr. says.

I am so sorry Steph...I hope there are viable treatment options for Earl. Let us know what happens at the doctors.
