Ugh. Here we go again...

My mother's reaction to her chemotherapy has taken a sudden nose dive. On Mother's Day she had to be hosptialized due to the ill-effects of the chemo.
Instead of killing the little bit of cancer left in her body, it was killing her.
It was then that I had to make the very tough decision to withdraw from the 2011 Seminar.
I want someone else to be selected to go in my place. 
*big sigh

Now I'm starting to see similarities with family cancer-care and with my dream to someday visit India on a Fulbright-Hays Seminar.
They are both long journeys, in a way...
And with ANY long journey, I have to:
  • stay organized;
  • stay informed;
  • accept the fact that there is no straight and simple path;
  • never ever assume anything; and
  • always expect the unexpected.
I want to thank my friends and colleagues for your prayers and kind wishes.
When the world says, "Give up,"
Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."
