Duckie turns eleven tomorrow... it's hard to believe so much time has passed. It's hard not to look back at the raging, difficult and miserable little girl Duckie was when I landed here over 7 years ago. We owe the beautiful, smart and kind girl that she has become in part to the members of this community. Thank you for helping to get us here. And on to my mother-in-law. We're not sure what's happening. The doctors had initially been hopeful that her tumor would respond well to treatment but that has changed now. I'm not sure of the specifics because father in law is too upset to talk about it. mother in law has been transferred to our local cancer treatment center. husband is upset, and Duckie is broken-hearted. I can hear her tossing and turning in bed. I wish I could take the hurt away.
