I thought I'd share just because this group is (still) good at being supportive. My husband and I are gearing up for a season of pain. Not sure how else to say it. And there's not much that can be done than putting on a cup, roll around a bit, then get back up and move on. My husband is adopted and has a relationship with his birth families. His half bio sister (same age as me, 44) on his bio father's side has a rare cancer and it's not looking good for her now. His bio father is having serious heart troubles, also not looking good. His adoptive mother has a less common type of lung cancer which doesn't sound that bad right now but we're waiting for more news. The thing that worries me about my mother in law is that the old battleaxe is scared. She's a fearless broad, so her not only being scared but showing it concerns me. All we can do at this point is just take it a day at a time. We have cancelled the Gulf Coast trip we had planned for November.
