Another "Good News, Bad News" kind of day

The good news is that my number two son has been selected for an advanced math course. In it, he would be taking 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math in the 6th grade. He was selected for the program based upon testing he took in the 5th grade. This testing shows he already knows 6th grade math. Now, to get him to buy into the concept. His initial reaction was negative. I went to a meeting at his school this morning, and now have some more reasons to share with him that might tip the balance.

The bad news is that the mother of one of his classmates is now being treated for cancer. She and her son have some kind of syndrome that leads them to be more likely to get cancer to begin with, so they have been followed for some time. We hope it was caught early.

Another friend of mine is starting chemotherapy tomorrow. She found her cancer by doing a breast self-exam.

Get your mammograms. Do your self-exams.
