Bad News

I know this is supposed to be primarily a running blog and lately there hasn't been a whole lot of running talk happening thanks to this sickness that won't end.  I tend to find away around the running talk by having the blog also titled "and some sauce on top" which refers to all the other stuff in life, usually "good stuff - sauce on top".   Monday afternoon on my way out the door to go to the airport I received some "bad stuff" news.  I want to put out here because honestly I don't know how else do deal and it will help explain my stressed out kind of life the next xxx months.  

My dad has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.  We don't know what stage yet as he has a few more tests to undergo and another meeting with the Cleveland Clinic oncologists on Tuesday after the holiday.  The news comes right at a time in which his wife (my step mom) is in breast cancer remission but still undergoing reconstruction surgeries as well as follow up care treatment.  At least he has someone in his life who has been there once the chemo treatments start.  

It's going to be difficult.  It already is difficult.  He's the one parent my sis and I have.  I live 6 hours away and travel for my job so going home to spend time with my dad and help out only throws a wrench into the whole situation.  I know I'll make it work but it's a lot to handle right now.  If you can send positive thoughts my dads way.  Every little bit helps right now.
