Received devastating news this morning... I sat down at my desk and received an email from one of my closest friends that I had not heard from in a while. The email said that she has been diagnosed with cancer - an inoperable brain tumor. Chemo and radiation start next week. I spent much of the day in shock, in tears and on the phone with other college friends who were also in shock and in tears. Plans are being made to go visit and help. I will post more when I am in a more positive frame of mind.
Also, later today my oldest daughter fractured her wrist in gymnastics. We are hoping she will be able to compete late winter / early spring, but honestly this is minor in comparison to what is going on with my friend. Right now I feel drained of all energy but hopeful that tomorrow will be a better day.
I'm so sorry to hear your news. My husband's uncle just passed away this past week from brain cancer, so I completely feel your pain. But if you're looking for hope and inspiration, stop by and read what Angie has to say at Keep Believing. Her husband has been beating the odds for far longer than the doctors expected. She's a great source for anything you or your friend want to know about brain cancer and she's a wonderful woman on top of it. Sending prayers your way.
Your friend is in my thoughts.
