The moment I have been dreading is here. I received a call from my sister saying that my brother only has 24 hours or so to live. For those of you who are new, my brother has an inoperable brain tumor. He has been getting worse everyday.
I have booked a flight to Minneapolis for tomorrow – he is at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Rochester, MN. I would love to have scheduled a bunch of posts for you all, but there is way to much for me to do before I leave.
As many of you know my father died this last March. My brother will be the second immediate family member to die this year. I REALLY FUCKING HATE BURYING MY FAMILY MEMBERS! I actually thought that when I tested HIV positive in April of 1999, that I was going to be the one dieing first. Shortly after I tested positive, my mother passed away from lung cancer. Then my father. Now my brother.
I know that death is a part of life and it can happen at anytime to anyone – but it still stinks watching your loved ones disappear before your eyes.
Anyway, I apologize for the depressing post today. I apologize that there will not be any posts from me until I get back – which could be a couple weeks or so. Right now I am scheduled to be back on December 6th but between you and me, I hope it won’t be that long.
But until then, please tell those close to you that you love them.
