sad news

My mom just sent me email to tell me that what they thought was arthritis in Shandi's leg turns out to be bone cancer. She's fourteen, so they are just doing pallative treatments because the only other thing would be amputation, and she's just too old.

I'd call and talk to her on the phone -- she's very funny when she recognizes people and barks -- but she's gone completely deaf within the last few months. And she's unlike to make it to next Christmas. So I'm glad there were many snugs and huggles while I was home last, and sleeping on my feet underneath the table just like when I was younger.
