As I’m sure many have seen, I have temporarily turned my Anthology duties over to Cia. So, if anyone who is planning to participate in the upcoming Anthologies, please contact her for any help you may require. Now, onto the reasoning behind the changes.
My family received some not so good news yesterday and honestly, I am not doing so great with it. My oldest brother was diagnosed with lymphoma. We do not know all the details yet and the not knowing making it even scarier. He will be going in for a full biopsy on Tuesday and has an appointment with the oncologist on the 12th to learn the results as far as type, severity, treatment plan, etc.
Originally, when we first heard it sounded like they caught it really early, but now we are not so sure. I found out tonight, via my mom, that a few months ago he had an enlarged lymph node in his neck and didn’t go get it checked out. So there is no telling if that is related to now or not. That’s really all the information we have right now. He is determined to make it through this and has a wonderful support group consisting of family, friends, coworkers, etc.
With everything going on, my focus is completely shot and as such, I don’t want what I do at GA to be anything less than the best I can make it. Right now I can’t do that.
Also, with the exception of Challenging Fate, my GA Premium Story, my stories will be on hold. I know it has been a while since I posted anything on Forging Trust, but I have been working on it. My work on it for the moment will be non-existent as I will be working on a different project geared towards helping my brother and his family. Once that project is done and my focus has returned, I will once again work on updating my stories.
Thank you to everyone for the kind thoughts I have already received and please keep my brother, his wife, and their three kids in your thoughts.
