  • Hi ladies, thanks for thinking of me. The pg seems to be going fine, no problems so far. I'm having a hard time focusing on it, or on anything, really, because 2 weeks ago today I got some terrible news. My dad has inoperable, metastatic pancreatic cancer that has spread to his liver. He has 5 -6 months. They live in New Orleans and it is very difficult to get there from Boston with a toddler -- no direct flights -- plus my mom says we can't stay at the house any more. So my siblings and I are trying to find an apartment, and I guess I'll go back and forth whenever I can. The airlines won't let me travel after October, so if he dies when they say he will, I'm going to have to drive 2 days to get to his funeral. Apart from that, it is impossible to deal with the idea of my dad dying, he's only 65 and I've never even seen him with a cold. Besides, I need him and I love him and we were supposed to have 20 more years.

    Sorry to ramble on, my brain and life are pretty messed up right now. At least the pg is going okay I guess. For the first time ever, I have a gender preference. It would be so nice for everyone in my family if we had a boy and named him for my dad. But of course I'd just love a healthy baby. Anyway, I'm still rambling. Thanks for asking about me, hope everyone here is well.

    I'm so sorry about your father Sarah. I will keep you, him and your family in my prayers.

    Unfortunately my SIL got the same exact news last week.
