Another twist in our life -
Less than a month ago, my Mother-in-law (Brian's mom) was diagnosed with progressive cancer. They found it around the outside of her lungs. She was told that with treatment, she had 4 to 6 years. Without treatment, she had 3 to 6 months. She has had two weeks of intense treatment. When my Father-in-law went to give her her medicine early this morning, she was in-coherent and babbling. He called both an ambulance and Brian's brother (who only lives a couple of miles from them). They took her to the hospital. They called here. "It all happened so quick". They called back to say that she had died. She is now in heaven. We went down and got to say goodbye to her earthly body. Brian is staying with his dad. Tomorrow the two of them and the brother have an appointment to plan the funeral. Brian's parents have always been highly involved in our and our kids lives.
