It's been a rollercoaster for the family. My F-I-L had improved and stabilized. On Wednesday we received the call things had gotten worse. He was in the end stage of his battle with cancer. He was just diagnosed on October 13th and 4 weeks later the monster had consumed his body. My hubby left immediately for Cleveland. I stayed behind with the kids to settle things at the house. I will head out Friday night. We are told we have just days left. Hospice helped take him home. Everyone in the family is at peace with what is going on. So my training is temporarily in a holding pattern and I will try to do what I can when I can.

I am so sorry. No words can help. Time seems to be the only thing that minimizes the pain. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I'm really sorry. But it looks like he can have some peace and dignity during his last days, and that's something many people can't experience.

Your priorities are right. Training is is everything. My prayers for all of you.

I've been thinking of you all weekend. You and your family are in my prayers.
