because i have suspended all projects due to having discovered a Mission. one of my coworkers has a son, who is 25, who has non-lymphoma hodgkins disease. last week, she had asked me if i would crochet a nebraska hat for him, since he'd lost so much hair from the chemo, and refused to shave it. she said she'd buy the yarn, and get back to me. i hadn't seen her since. i found out today that he's been sent home, and told he has 2 weeks left. two other coworkers are going to cook up a bunch of stuff friday night, and take it to her house saturday. i've decided to go ahead and make the hat. on my own. this isn't fair. he's so young! he has a baby! it's not right. (yes, i'm crying). so i'm doing this to say "i wish i could do more, i wish i could help more." she's a wonderful woman, and does not deserve to watch her child go by inches. he and his girlfriend (the baby's mother) are getting married tomorrow. what should be a happy occasion is going to be so bittersweet. if i have time, i'm going to make a hat for the baby as well.
it's not fair.
