Off Topic - Sometimes Life’s Not Fair
My oldest brother’s oldest son (my oldest nephew), passed away today. In his 50s, he was diagnosed out of the blue with stage iv melanoma in October. He’d started chemotherapy/immunotherapy but it was too late. It’s devastating news to our extended family. It all happened so fast; it’s like getting hit with a wrecking ball to the stomach. I feel numb and heartbroken.
My mother-in-law passed away in October. She was age 95 so it wasn’t unexpected but it is still a large loss. My stepson was diagnosed with multiple myeloma at the beginning of 2023 and had a stem cell transplant in November. He is currently doing good, but it is still a major concern.
Plus I’m dealing with my own complications from surgery to a rod in the femur in October. I’m not sure why everything hit the fan at the same time, but all must be dealt with.
