Don't know what to say
I know I've been quiet lately. My uncle Tony (my dad's oldest brother) has been in the hospital for the last two weeks. Long story short, he traveled to China for some treatments for his cancer. He returned around the beginning of the month. His chances weren't good when he left. Now we're preparing for the worst. I mentioned his situation a while back (December). Things haven't gotten much better. On one hand, he has lived longer than the initial prognosis. But now... we've been having tons of family coming through to see him while he's here. I'm not sure when he's going to fly back to North Carolina. But they've pretty much told us that it's over. They're out of answers. It's hard to imagine, that his grand-kids will grow up, never knowing him. He has five right now and two more on the way. The next couple weeks are going to be tough. I've never had anyone close to me pass away, except for my grandmother who died when I was in high school. I don't know why, but this time around it's different.
