Tonight I am catching the red-eye flight home to Virginia Beach to see my family for a couple of days. My mother has been diagnosed with cancer and it doesn't look good. It is a very complicated situation for my family. I won't go into all of the reasons, but the bottom line is that I may lose my mother to this disease. I, like the rest of my siblings, have my good days and bad. My mom, on the other hand is really going through it, but she has her six children by her side. My father? He and I have never gotten along and this situation doesn't seem to be making it any better. In fact, it's as bad as it has ever been.
