[personal|cancer] Running rough

Yesterday was not so fun. calendula_witch and I struggled with some emotional static from this latest installment of the cancer journey. Right now, everything is on hold pending the surgical consult on August 11th. That makes planning ahead mighty difficult. We don't even know if we're still making the NZ/AUS trip later this month. Plus the overall stress pressure.

Everything's just a little off right now, waiting to see what happens next. I swear that I hate these uncertain times most of all.
