    [​IMG] <--- Pretty much sums it up.

    So today I continued planning my wedding. I have 11 days left and I am getting a worn thin and stressed. I am so glad I only have to do this once! Then I found out today that my evil sister-in-law-to-be is pregnate. I'm gonna be an aunt. Great (not really). NOW I just got a call that my future grandmother-in-law has stage IV breast cancer that has spread to her brain. Really? All of this in one day! I am beyond overwhelmed. I don't know what stage IV cancer is but any cancer can not be good. I really love my GIL, she gets so tickled when I tell her about my chickens. The only time I get along with SIL is when she is far away from me. Now she's gonna be here all the time. [​IMG] I have to rant alittle. Today has not been my day or anyone elses.

    There's only 4 stages in cancer... number 1 being the least worrisome. Both my son and my foster daughter had 4th stage cancer. Son is in remission for 4 and a half years now and foster daughter is still in chemo about ready for a bone marrow transplant.

    4th stage isn't always fatal.. keep that in mind.

    Thanks Boyd. I will remember that.

    ChickieBooBoo, because everyone else wants to see her.

    Oh and on the subject of SIL, she just got into a car wreak not 10 minutes ago. I don't have any details yet except that today offically sucks.
