wow it is thursday

this has been a weird and crazy week. my uncle who raised my mom from the time she was 18 months old and he was 16 called on monday saying he hasn't been feeling well. so he finally went to the doctors. they sent sent him for tests and x-rays. they found a mass. we were not suprised he smokes like a chimney 1 step away from a chain smoker. he was to see a surgeon on friday but it was moved up to wednesday. we waited all day to find out what the surgeon said. he finally called wednesday night from the hospital. there are 2 tumors on his spine. they are slowly strangling his spinal cord and they were afraid to let him continue living alone. the fear is that he will fall and end up paralised with no way to call for help. they a setting him up for radiation. at this point that is all we know. my paernts are driving down to see him on sunday and to check on the house. boyfriend and i may go to we will see i still have to talk to him tonight and decide what we want to do. hopefully by monday we will have more information and see where we go from here.
