    2 years ago my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, double mastectomy, chemo, all the fun stuff. She's toughed it all out, missed minimal work. I never posted about it.

    Early this month one of our sump pumps failed during the night, leaving our basement flooded.

    The following Monday morning our dog died on our bedroom floor.

    2 days later, we had to put one of our cats down.

    We'd had them 13 years, the cat was born in our bedroom.

    Yesterday, my wife had a seizure in her eye, while at work (she's an executive assistant at the hospital).
    A co worker walked her to the ER. The MRI and CT revealed an egg sized brain tumor on the right side.

    Surgery is Monday.

    Been a rough month.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. I've been through equally trying times. Just keep the faith and stay positive. Try to keep her positive, it helps.

    Damn, that's awful. I don't do the prayer thing myself but I do wish you some good luck and good breaks.

    I'm very sorry to hear about everything you and your wife are going through. It's absolutely horrible. You've got my sympathy and best wishes for your wife's speedy recovery. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your dog and cat. My pets are like members of the family, and it sounds like yours were too, so I know you must be devastated. But, I'm glad your dog and cat had a loving family.

    I never know what to say in these kinds of threads. I guess I'd just tell you that as a fellow human being, I feel bad for you when I hear about what you're going through. Sending my sympathy and good thoughts your way.
