So I am writing this to clue those of you in who either didn't ask or I didn't tell about everything, despite the fact that it hurts to breathe, I have a killer migraine, feel as though I could throw up at any second, and should be writing a page in Italian on literature. My dad called twice while I was driving blue line today, but of course I couldn't answer because I was driving. So I called him back when I was done and he told me that he went to the oncologist. Well, it turns out his cancer is back. And it's spread to his adrenal gland and his lungs. Also, it can't be treated with chemotherapy or radiation. There's nothing they can do for him at the UConn Health Center so they're going to send him to Dana Farber in Boston where they can hopefully do something for him. We'll have to wait until the end of November for that though. But in the mean time, it really sucks to hear my dad cry. Dads are not supposed to cry. So I've been fighting back tears since 6:30 tonight. Well, most of the time not fighting them back... like how I started bawling in the middle of waiting for my pledge review in front of the president of our fraternity and half of my pledge class. But everyone was really great and concerned and it really just confirms what I was going to post yesterday but never got around to it, that pledging this fraternity is one of the best decisions I have ever made... despite all the work and frustration that have come along with it. But Matt refuses to go to bed until I do, so I feel bad for keeping him up, so Iguess I shuld go to bed now. I'm exhausted anyway, not that I'll even be able to fall asleep. Tomorrow is going to be a really long day. I really hope that if nothing else, the Red Sox win. (Sorry, Kristina.) Later, skaterz.

I can't even begin to imagine what you are going through. You've already been through too much. I can only pray and hope that things turn out for the best. I'm here for you, you know that.

You and your family are in my prayers.

I know it's been a while since we've gotten a chance to chat, but I wanted to let you know that you and your family will be my prayers. Stay strong, and know that God has a plan for each of us, even though it doesn't always make sense. If you need anything, I'll be back in CT until next Wednesday. Love you!!

Laura, I'm very sorry to hear this. I wish that there was something that I could do for your or say to make things better. At any rate, the next time I see you, I'll give you a really big hug...

The worst feeling in the world is feeling someone's hot tears on your shoulder; you want to say a million things, and make everything better but it's impossible to just find the words. I want to be there for you in every and any way that I can and I guess I'm just posting to say that my phone is always on, even if you aren't so fond of that method of chatting (and even if it's on vibrate most of the time). Whatever the hour, I'll be awake to listen or just to hold you if that's what you need.

p.s. don't worry about the ip - i know it doesn't make any sense :-P
