Hug your kids

Another tragic tale of a young parent lost too soon is here.

This guy was friend of Judy and Steve Burns in Ann Arbor and Judy sent me the link. It moved me, so I thought I'd share it with you all. All I can say is hug your loved ones and appreciate every day to the best of your ability.

On a brighter note, I spoke to Tom today and things are looking at least somewhat up for Kathy. She is out of the hospital and they were able to move from Seattle to Portland, where her parents and three sisters are. They are at her folks' house, surrounded and supported by family, kids swept away with cousins.

She is up and about and feeling better, though still weak and battling a lung infection. On Tuesday she is having some scans which will reveal how successful the radiation treatments were. Like dixie, she is an active person struggling with all the sitting around necessitated, but that has to be a good sign. Tom sounds good and is feeling a lot more optimistic so I am going to do the same.
