Mark seems to be doing okay with the news, but then again he doesn't really show his feelings too much. We talked about it tonight, but it didn't seem that he wanted to dwell on it and I hope that when he's ready, we'll talk about it again. I do worry about him, though - he's never had to deal with anyone close to him who's gotten sick before. It always tends to change a person's outlook on life when something like this happens - and I don't want him to go through it alone, but I don't want to be pushy and talk to him about it before he's ready either.
If anyone out there could spare some good wishes and prayers for my Mother-in-law, we'd really appreciate it.
