Lancer -

i'm not real good with sickness, hospital visits, etc. i always feel awkward and i don't know what to say. but i really feel bad for you that you have this additional burden on top of everything else.

i appreciate the way you are able to laugh and joke about it and try to put on a brave face. but i hope you will also feel free to do some serious lamenting if you need to. don't feel like you have to keep up the morale for anybody else.
