History and stories tell us of families that have been stricken with tragedy. The Kennedy family has definitely had their share of bad news. However, it is not my intention to hold our family up and try to "one-up" other families that have experienced tragedy in their lives because everybody has their own stories of pain and suffering that are very real for them. But it seems that after coasting through my life for close to 40 years with very little activity in the tragedy column, my family has decided to rectify that little fact in a big hurry. It started with my cancer diagnosis last February and is followed with a bang this year with the recent revelation that my father has been diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. Guess he got tired of me hogging all the attention in the family.
So we again walk down this path of unanswered questions, anger, and fear.
