I need a bit of a break

I got word last night that it is stage III lung cancer and that contrary to what I was originally told, the reason they are hurrying right along with the other carotid artery surgery is because they want the option to possibly operate on the lung cancer and don't want Dad to stroke out on the table.

Yeah, not quite the way it was spun to me.

So I need a break, guys. I'm tired, not sleeping well, crying a lot, now have eczema not just on my eyelid but right under my eye as well (I imagine from rubbing them to death). All of this spells out to me that I am over extended and just worn down. I will continue to post and write, but not nearly as often as I used to. That may change at some point if I need to vent or what have you, but for now, I just need to sit and digest this info and try to deal. Several of you all have my email and I'd love to hear from you if you feel the need to check in.

I am not exiting forever. I just don't need another obligation.

I imagine I'll still be commenting here and there because frankly reading y'all's crazy shit tends to make me laugh and that's always a good thing.

You should take some time to sit on the sidelines, and don't you dare feel guilty about it either!

This makes me remember (not quite correctly I'm sure) the phrase; If I didn't laugh... I'd cry!

Laughter is good. It relieves stress. I'll try to think of something witty. LOL. (Don't read todays though... it sucks the big green weinie it's so boring!)

Sucky. I'm sorry to hear about your dad and I'm sure you're emotionally tapped.

I always suggest this when I hear about these situations...if they haven't, look into MD Anderson in Houston, they are the Miracle Workers.
