Patrick's principal got in contact with the family of his classmate and they are all safe and inland in Sri Lanka. PHEW! The school wanted to do some fundraising for tsunami victims, and since one of our own families is already there the school is sending all the money they raise to the family's Roman Catholic church there to help fund their local relief efforts.

My heart is hurting for my friend. She has been going through HELL and it just got worse. Her husband has been battling Acute lympboblastic leukemia. She just emailed me tonight and said that she and her sister are flying off to the east coast to be at her mother's bedside. Her mother has battled cancer many times already, but this time it has gotten the better of her. She has pneumonia and doesn't have the strength to fight it. My friend has been so positive up until now, but I fear this might be more than she can handle right now.

I'll be thinking of your friend flying across country. Very hard indeed.
