I think, given the news I have to share, that it would be silly to recap my week in books. You can go visit me on Goodreads if you are interested.
On Friday, Matt and I received some sad news. Matt's step-father, Don, hasn't been feeling exactly right and he finally went in to the doctor. After a series of tests and some x-rays, the doctor found a couple of large tumors in his stomach and they diagnosed him with lymphoma. We're a little bit in shock and slowly coming to terms with the news.
Don is really a father to Matt and his sisters and brother (Don did have one more son with Matt's mom-Matt is one of five kids). Matt has no real relationship with his father, so Don has been there for everything.
I think we are really having a hard time seeing someone who is so full of life, happy, and loving as being sick. But we are praying and hoping for the best. We'll see what the doctors say, but I know it is important to continually think positive.
Anyway, anything else would be silly to add here.
If I am a little more absent than usual, you know why.
