The vines are good, the fruit is sweet this year

Dad writes about my stepmother:

We got bad news yesterday. Rachel’s lung cancer had recurred and involves her right lung, mediastinum, and right neck. We saw her oncologist today. He is scheduling a repeat bronchoscopy and and biopsies. She may receive lung irradiation if there is tumor blocking her bronchi.  Then probably a trial of another biological. Her spirits are good and she feels generally well except for cough and hoarseness. Sorry I haven’t got back, but pretty busy with her tests, etc.. We have a lot of good friends in AA sustaining us. We have a Higher Power, and we are taking it a day at a time. We are grateful for every day we have together. Will keep you informed. Keep us in your prayers.
XOXO Dad/Uncle Bill
