Ugh. I just found out about a health problem in one of my parents. I could say what health issue one of my parents is dealing with but I’d like to believe that if I don’t mention it by name there’s a better chance a treatment can be effective. Entirely effective. I’ll hope.
But it could be worse, so perhaps I shouldn’t complain. I’m sure it will raise all sorts of discussions between my parents though about how to plan for the long term future — a discussion that really any married couple in their sixties should share. I’ve known people who have gotten much worse news about their parents so I’ll minimize this by saying one can still be optimistic about my parents’ case turning out ok.
