Come On, 2005, You Can Do Better Than This!

So 2005 isn't going that great so far.

I mentioned my dad's trip to the hospital on the first day of the year. Fortunately, it appears to just be a severe sinus infection and nothing heart-related.

Well, today I got a call from one of my good friends who told me he has cancer. Fucking great. The good news is the cancer hadn't spread before they removed it. The bad news is he's going to have to undergo aggressive chemo instead of just radiation therapy.

He did seem to be in pretty good spirits, all things considered. My thoughts and prayers are with him, his wife and his kids as he prepares to start the chemo...most likely within the next week.

Good luck, man.
