As most of you know, I lost my dad very suddenly in November (Diagnosed with NASH which progressed quickly to HUS and renal failure). My 12 year old son was particularly close to him. He is celebrating his Bar Mitzvah this coming November and I have had a hard time getting excited about the planning knowing my dad will not be a part of it.
My mother in-law called us Monday to tell us that my father in-law has bladder cancer that has progressed into the musculature of the bladder. He is having a surgical biopsy today at Cedars Sinai (they live in CA) to stage it and come up with a treatment plan. We are in shock. He was diagnosed at a routine physical when they found + microhematuria. Being extremely over cautious, his MD referred him for a MRI. We thought they were nuts. But lo and behold, cancer
Needless to say, it's been a rough week. I have not told the kids yet as we are waiting to find out what the plan is. Our good friend who went to Med school with my husband happens to be a radiologist/oncologist and told us that most likely he is looking at chemo and radiation and a very rough road ahead.
Work here has been nuts as well. Had that Epi episode last week, then ended my week with my T1D kiddo dropping super low, and then Monday it happened again. He is fine thankfully. And then yesterday a K student fell off the bars and broke her wrist. I am just tired. 32 more work days until Summer vacation.
Thanks for listening. It's hard being in my little office by myself with no one to talk to about stuff
