out like a lamb

Has my life really just become a big cliche?

March came in like a lion.

And now it seems it's going out as a lamb. On speed.

No, life hasn't slowed down. It's just gotten crazier.

Amara and I drove with Lolo and Lola2Amara yesterday to see Aunt and Uncle2Amara in Columbus. We all wanted to spend some family time together before Lola2Amara's surgery.

Yes, the brain tumor is back.

I have always been open about my mother's illness. And Aunt2Amara and I know just how blessed we are that Lola2Amara surpassed her original diagnosis by years.

But even though we thought we were prepared, we weren't. At least I wasn't.

So now as I prepare to:
  • put the Yellow House up on the market (the realtor comes back this week with the official paperwork),
  • get ready for an out of town trip (did I mention I was part of a workshop for the American Medical Association? more on that later), and
  • simply get my health and fitness back in order
we are now prepping ourselves for a battle with cancer.

The gentle lamb has turned vicious. I'm just hoping now for a serene April.


  1. Oh no. I am so very sorry. Man, I hate cancer. Please know that you are in my thoughts. Big, big hug to all of you. xo

  2. I am so so sorry to hear that. Your mom and the rest of the family will be in our thoughts.
