and discovering that that is quite the roller coaster ride. Wanna come along?

Wow what a night!

We had at least one tornado and possibly more touch down near us tonight.  Thankfully, neither was close to us.  The closest one was 2-3 miles away.  I’m truly grateful it was no closer – it destroyed a church, and damaged several nearby houses.    The thunderstorm that followed the hail and the tornado(s) was really severe.  All in all, it was a tense hour or two.

My mother and stepfather returned tonight from Duke University, where they saw a cancer specialist.  They performed a scan of some sort, then went in (non-surgically) to take a look at his tumor.  The news wasn’t good.  They cannot operate on him.  That doesn’t leave many options.  He will go back to his oncologist sometime soon and see what he says, but Dad already said he won’t have more chemo (of course, Mom said that was before he knew they couldn’t operate).  We shall see, but I think his time is limited.

Crowning me … part 2

Tomorrow is the big day – I get my crown put in.  On.  Whatever.  I cannot wait for this process to be over.  My tooth aches at expose to warm or cold, which makes the combo of breakfast cereal and coffee painful.  It has gradually gotten better – I no longer need to take Motrin after breakfast for the pain – but it is still a bit painful at times.  I just want my mouth to go back to normal.

And Sophie?  She’s sick again.  She missed about half of February but did really well last week – that is, she went to school all five days.
