Bad News

my hair is dark

My friend's cancer has spread, we don't know much more than that. Right now it seems like the best we can hope for is stage two. Stage four is very bad. Thirty-eight year old father of three young boys.

I'm having a friend over for lunch today because I could really use the company. He works from home so can bring his laptop and work in the living room. There is a great sandwich place about a ten minute walk from my place. They have popovers and lots of veggie options. They are much better than the hipster place down the street five minutes from me.

I am going to get back to drawing with my Wacom tablet before doing some light cleaning before my friend comes over. It isn't easy to use, but that is part of the fun.

April can't come soon enough, I hope it is better to people than March has been. March has always been a hard month for me and this year it seems like it is hard for a lot of people I know.

So sorry to hear about your friend.

Thanks Annie. We saw him and his family yesterday. Some days are better than others she told me. Yesterday was a good day for them. They seem to be getting appointments very quickly at least.
