Annnnd... we're back. I need to start blogging again for real, this is getting kind of ridiculous. Things have been way more than ridiculous as of late, but its finally all paying off!! I've been offered the position as an assistant teacher at an animation camp at school. I'm WAY excited about that. ANNNNND Hancock Fabrics finally called me back (it took them a month ahah) and I'm going in to talk to the manager on Friday. Yay! 

Anyway, today I went to visit my friend Preston who is a pretty cool kid. He's 17 and has been diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a type of cancer. The tumor is in his shoulder and he's been undergoing chemo for a while now. (I forget how long it seems like forever.) Well, he's having surgery on Friday to remove the tumor and then he has more chemo after the surgery, just to be sure the cancer is gone. He said they think he'll be done with treatment around October/November. He scared us last week when he was hospitalized with CMV, a ridiculous giant virus that can be really scary. Well... his case was scary, and he's the first person with Ewing's Sarcoma to ever have CMV, so he's made history... just not in a fun way. Anyway, the hospital he was in last week was 4 hours away from here and he's been home for the past few days and I saw them today just before they left to go back to the hospital so he can have his surgery. He's such a trooper, he's a strong, determined guy and I know he'll get through this, and I can't even imagine how hard it would be to be diagnosed with cancer at 17. I'm so proud of him!! 

So, in saying all of that, if you could all send Preston prayers and good thoughts on Friday I would really appreciate it. It's a pretty intensive surgery, I'm not really sure what they have to do, but it's going to last 8 hours. Yikes. I'll keep you guys updated when I know what's going on and everything. 

I love you Preston!! Get well soon!

Thanks guys <3
