Bad things definitely come in threes

I wish I was posting with more uplifting news, but I'm not.

Remember Mr. JB's uncle that was rushed to hospital last week because his kidneys shut down?

Well his health problems don't end there.

Mr. JB just got off the phone with his dad (who is feeling pretty good, btw) and he found out that Uncle R is also full of cancer.

The doctors don't expect him to last the week.

His daughter is returning from out west where she just flew back to on the 2nd.

We have a very hard time believing that Uncle R didn't know about the cancer. He sees many, many specialists for his diabetes and other health issues. It wouldn't be this advanced if the disease just started.

Apparently he has some sort of death wish.

I feel completely shell-shocked.

Please pray, please think positive thoughts and send them in our direction.

I'm just about ready to curl up into the fetal position and cry.

I'm done.

And this time it has nothing to do with my infertility.

  1. So sorry about your uncles cancer, my grandfather had cancer that was not discovered until it had spread everywhere, despite many doctors and many specailists, sometimes it happens and its just not fair.
