And no, it's worse than Bush being re-elected!!

Game back from my short California vacation just to find a message from my mother. She had been dealing with some cancer for quite a while not (throat and tongue) but although she thought she was done with it all since she had been doing fine for the past five years or so, the doctors decided to give her a full body scan just to make sure. Well turns out the cancer has spread and they can't do anything, they give her maybe 4-5 months. :(

To make things worse, she is in Canada, some 3000 miles away from me and I can't even go and see her until I get my immigration snafu fixed up. I have an appt with the CIS this afternoon, hopefully they won't be the heartless bureaucrats they usually are!
