Heavy Heart

It may seem silly, but it is true. Coincidence? Probably, but it is a consistent coincidence. Bad news in the neuroblastoma "community" comes in waves. We lost another friend yesterday and I just read a heartbreaking, brutally honest, and inspirational update from the father a beautiful little girl that will lose her battle any day now.

Boom. Boom. The blows keep coming.

I can understand how you feel. I'm on an online community for mine nd my children's cancer and it's like a kick in the gut anytime there is a "It Hurts Deeply To Tell You" post.

I wish you, your family, and your son all the luck in the world and I will keep you in my thoughts. It looks like your son is very lucky to have a father like you.

I can't remember if it was you or Josh who recommended the Confederacy of Dunces. I'm listening to it on my way to and from work. The main character talks about Fortuna's wheel, and how we have cycles of good and bad news/luck/etc.

I've thought about how the book puts this notion in the most ridiculous framework available, and it is still an irresistible notion. When things aren't going my way, I absolutely do not want to hear the result of something important. You are right; it is silly. But, what we know can't really impact what we feel, at least not as much as we would like.
