Superbowl Sunday

After curling, we went to a friend's house for their Superbowl party. They have it every year. There weren't as many people there this year as last year, which was kind of nice. We only got to see the last half or so of the game, so we missed the half-time show. That's too bad, because I like Prince.

The thing that sucks in Canada about the Superbowl is that we get a Canadian feed - the US feed is shuffled through the Canadian station, and so we get mostly Canadian commercials. That means that we don't get to see many cool new US commercials - we get to see not cool Canadian commercials :(. Sigh. I know, I can go to YouTube's Superbowl page or whatever to see them tonight or tomorrow, but it's not the same.

I have to get up ridiculously early (for me) tomorrow again because I'm seeing the genetic counselor at 9am. There are some new genetic tests they can do since the last time I had the testing done, and so I'd like to get them done. I don't think it'll change my life any if I test positive for a mutation, but I'd like to know if I do have one that they know about. And if I test positive, then my sisters have the option of getting tested, too.

On a completely unrelated note, I've been following this blog of a young woman who had some kind metastatic colorectal cancer. She had been admitted to hospital on January 13 and she died this morning. Her husband has been blogging her final days while he watched her in hospital (they have both been blogging there for the last 8 months or so as well). It's very sad and very touching - the blog is here, but don't read it unless you are ready to cry. I hope that Ian will also blog for me when I can't do it myself.
