Found out 1 week ago yesterday, that my sweet baby grandson has retinoblastoma in his left eye.  They already started him on chemo, and there is a 99% chance they will have to remove his eye.  I am so devastated.  It is so unfair for a little baby to have to go through this.  :(  On a more positive note, this form of cancer is 95% treatable.  And I am glad he is young enough to adapt to having only one eye.  But I am still very upset.

That IS very sad!  You and your family are in my prayers!
