Time, Death & Wastefulness


So, it’s been a while since I posted anything at all remotely comic book related. I hate people who have dormant blogs, and I hate it even more when people have dormant blogs, but occasionally leave posts about how they don’t have time to post… that being said, I am about to do just that

I think I first lost control of this site a couple of months ago, when I moved house and got a new job. Then, about a month ago my grandmother died, so I was pretty torn up about that. Just as I was starting to feel a bit better about life, last week I got a call from my Dad in the middle of the night. It seems that my Mum has been very sick and tired recently, so they decided to take her to the Doctor. This was a very big step, because my Mother doesn’t trust the medical profession, and has never register with a GP. So, it turns out that due to the fact that she doesn’t really eat much, she has anemia and malnutrition. While she was there they gave her an X-Ray, and it showed that she has Lung Cancer! We’ve all been extremely upset and depressed for the last week. Today she is booked in for a CT scan to see the extent of the damage, and size of the tumours. After this she will have to have a biopsy and start treatment. I am hoping that the Cancer was caught early and is operable, but we won’t know more until they finish all the tests.

So, sorry about the lack of posting, things are just difficult at the moment.

    when it rains, it pours eh?
    The title of a book I was given once: “Cancer is a word, not a sentence”.

    To keep things comic related: Check out a web-comic reprint that’s available in GN form — “Mom’s Cancer”. Another cancer related comic — ‘Cancer Vixen’.

    Thanks Chris.

    I have heard of “Mom’s Cancer” before, but not the other. I’ll be sure to check it out.
