My dad is sick. We won’t know a definitive diagnosis for several days but it looks like he may have cancer. He’s had 1 surgery already and is facing at least 1 more. He lives on the other fucking side of the country from me and I am freaking out.

He’s older but in general very healthy and fit and active and I’m feeling so off-balance right now thinking about all of this. I want to see him but it takes forever to get where he is, I don’t have much time off available, and even if I did it’s hella expensive to get there, so as this all plays out I’m going to have to figure out how to ration my time and money when all I want to do is BE WITH HIM.

I’ve been crying for 2 days straight.

Can you spare a moment to offer up a prayer or healing energy or good thought for him? I would really appreciate it.
