This past week, my oldest living brother got the news people dread. With his congestive heart failure, a clot in his left ventricle, pleurisy, diabetes and on and on, this time next year, say the drs, he won't be here.

He's okay with it. He's spent the last few days talking about it with his wife and in-laws and me. His son knows, but hasn't said anything yet. He only moved to the other coast a couple of months ago, just starting out at 21, and now this.

It sucks. It hurts. I've had enough death in my life and I'm getting really tired of both.

I am so sorry to read this. It seems like you don't get a break. My thoughts are with you and your brother and his family.

(And apologies for responding to this so late--I haven't been checking blogs much lately.)

Thanks, as always, for your continued support, Moony. It's always food for thought in my life. (And I know how it is in Spring, who has time to read the blogs right now? Oy, there's so much happening. If you haven't lately, go check iBratt to see what's happening with the Selectboard now.)
