Video and death

OK, I'm trying to post the video again. This is about the sixth time. I swear this is my last try.

Before you see the video, I have to share some bad news. My brother Clint died this morning. I posted in July, I think, that he had been diagnosed with lung cancer. Just last week the doctor said he expected Clint to recover, so he wasn't eligible for Hospice. It seemed like good news. I was skeptical because it seems that people with lung cancer don't ever recover, but I certainly didn't expect this. I'm glad, though, that he isn't suffering, and I'm thankful he has such a wonderful family. His wife, Lee, is the best thing we could have ever hoped for for him.

Now, I'm going to try to post that damn slideshow.

it more than sucks. it's terribly sad. especially having it happen so quickly, and way before anyone expected it. not to mention right before christmas.

i'm very sorry.

Thanks, everyone. I felt so tired all day. Sad. It's just weird that he's gone.

Ever practical, I tried to get some work done, but I couldn't think at all. I finally grabbed Kayleigh and went Christmas shopping. It was nice to be with her.

Amy, I'm so terribly sorry about your brother. You must be beside yourself. I know it's no consolation, but we're all here for you if you need. Okay?

And I thought the video was terrific.

Amy I am so sorry to hear this, and sorry I am only just finding out now. I haven't had any time for blog reading while OS, and today I'm spending some time catching up.

Thoughts and prayers with you and your family.
