Many of you know my mom has had various health issues including breaking her hip and loss of cognitive functioning requiring a move to an assisted living facility. What you may not know is she has survived so much already! My father's sudden death, lung cancer, breast cancer, auto-immune disorders, and a whole list of other ailments.

Photobooth fun at my daughter's wedding.
A few days ago, I learned my sister has been diagnosed with endometrial Clear Cell AdenoCarcinoma. I will save all the details leading up to the diagnosis, but suffice it to say they should have done her surgery as soon as she began having symptoms, but they did not treat it urgently.
About a year ago, my doctor suggested I have genetic testing due to my mom's history. At the time, I decided I didn't want to know if I carried certain genes. I've since changed my mind. I don't have the appointment set yet, and I don't know if insurance covers any part of it, but I am going to have it regardless. I would love to hear from anyone who has gone through genetic testing.
So I can't bring you any random or happy in this post. Nope. Not today.
