startled

We have been receiving messages via every means that is available today: snail mail, phone, text, Facebook instant messaging and news feed that has just been startling. 

Two family members, one on my side and one on Homer's side, have ended up with medical diagnosis that are just plain awful. Both are living and loving life, in their late 20's to mid 30's and now lives are dramatically different. 

Inoperable brain tumor. C5 injury that, in most cases results in little use of anything below the neck. 

It feels like both happened in a blink of an eye. Life is rolling along, going pretty darn well and than massive and seemingly irreversible changes. 

To have our entire families, shaken to the core, is difficult. There are moments when the questioning and not understanding feels overwhelming. 

Yesterday was a beautiful, low humidity in July kind of day. Today promises to be the same. As we do our work here on the farm, as we get our feet back under us having heard such news, we are grateful for that. We are holding and hoping our loved ones in our hearts and looking for the best outcome for all.
