Got a call yesterday afternoon from the boss, who wanted me to come in today and for the remaining duration of the certification class that's going on this week. Seems the two instructors that are doing it are having some trouble with crowd control, even though there are only 8 of them. Seems they like to argue everything, and one of them likes to throw his vast experience around for everyone to see...

Mary's at school this evening. She's learning to be a medical office assistant, so she's out of the house on Tuesday and Thursday evenings for the next few weeks.

I heard from my brother in Chicago. Apparently, my aunt Karen (OK, I've never really thought of her as an aunt, even though her mother was married to my grandfather for almost 40 years) has had a relapse of breast cancer, and it has now spread to her lungs and all over. Her prognosis is not good, although they're giving her chemotherapy every day. There are some people who you honestly wish you had gotten to know better, and for me, she's one of them. Anyway, whatever you do for sick people, I'd appreciate it. You all know that you are in my thoughts and prayers always.

Anyway, enough computer for one day. Good night.

I'm sorry to hear about your Aunt Karen, John. Even though you didn't really get to know her previously, I'm willing to bet she would probably be grateful to know you in her remaining days.

Will keep her and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you. The hard thing about this is that her mother (who was my grandfather's second wife and as good a grandmother as anyone could have) just lost her sister. I appreciate the thoughts and prayers.
