1.) Today, a family member was diagnosed with cancer. I really don't have much information as she has to go back for bone scans/other testing tomorrow. I do know that it appears to be an inflamatory(?) type of cancer. (Not sure what that means...)

2.) This request is actually for a friend of a friend who is going through a REALLY rough and trying time. Emotional stress due to relationships and work/school are taking quite a toll on the poor dear.

A little uppiedate on Clarice:
She's still with us - we're just taking it one day at a time and counting each and every precious second/blessing.

Thanks to everyone in advance,
