Hi all--

I'm not really sure why I sought out this board since I've been dealing with the knowledge that this daignosis was probably coming soon for a while, but I'm not one to reach out for help, so I've been dealing with it by myself. Some friends know, but all they can do is call occasionally, which isn't enough when I'm up all night thinking about what's going on with my mom.

OMG, Sweetie. Please don't apologize for rambling.

Thank you. She took a turn for the worse last night so I'm headed to the west coast today (instead of Saturday when I had planned to go). My stepfather said that Saturday probably would be too late. It's only a matter of days now. I just hope I make it in time.

I hope you do make it as I feel this is so important to you and for you. I am thinking of you.

Promise
