A bit of a storm arose. I had to sit down with my mother in law and her son/my husband and confirm her diagnosis of cancer today. Her doctor is out of town, and well it is a small town. I see patients every day. I have divulged a grim cancer diagnosis to many, but never to a family member, to a second mother. The trail ahead is a bit frightening, and the weather is stormy, but I see tracks in the trail where others have run. I am not alone.
