Not again.

We've been asked to keep this quiet from family, so I'm only posting details here where that part of the family doesn't visit (at least as far as I know. Please, G-d don't let them know about this place).

My MIL called today to tell dh that his father has prostate cancer.

My initial reaction was absolute shock. I wanted to cry. I wanted to hug my husband. It didn't help that we were in the middle of Target at the time. Great place to raid the dollar spot or find a cute top, but not the best place for a breakdown.

Now, my thoughts are, "Not again. Please, G-d, not again."

I am keeping you in our prayers. I am hoping and praying that the diagnosis was made early enough that he has a complete recovery.

Depending on how early they catch it, prostate cancer is fairly curable (if that's any comfort). Hang in there.
