bad, bad blogger...

Ok, well I do have a reason or two... We were at the shore last week, and it was nothing but Cape May goodness. We even poked around into the prices of property. You can get a "lot" right across the street from the ocean, for the bargain basement price of 1.7 mil. Empty lot. Not even a weed to call your own. Egads, who can afford that stuff??? We saw some further off the beach, for 689,000. Yikes some more. But, what we did find- a fishing shack in every sense of the word, right across from the beach for 159,000. It was more like a lean-to really. But the article said, " buy small and build up". So I guess it can be done...
Other news- and there is a lot. Our Kitty Herman was diagnosed with Liver cancer on Sat. He is comfortable for now, and doing his every day stuff, but as soon as he stops, it will be time. ~Sigh. he is such a sweet boy too. He is 14 though, or at least almost, so he has had a good run. That doesn't mean we won't miss him.
Mom had her surgery on May 30, and that went well. She is doing great, as a matter of fact, she gets her staples out today. Her friend laura is bringing her to Abington. (thanks Laura!)
And last, but certainly not least. A very good family friend is dying. I have known George since I was 9. I barged my way into his and Ginny's lives. They both have been like parents to me and my sister. My heart is breaking. He was unable to come to my graduation, because he was swollen at that point, and in the hosp. waiting to get better. He is in the final stages of liver disease. Gin called me last night, and told me he is intubated, and really the only organ working is his heart. Gin has signed a DNR, since he would have no quality of life. I am waiting for dana to get home now, so I can go home and see him. pray for him. Pray that is he is going to go, go quickly and with peace. Pray for a miracle. Pray for no pain. Pray for Gin, to keep her strength, and give her the strength to get through this time. They have no children, aside from my sister and me, and no siblings. I love you, Pop. always. forever.
