mfh Posted December 11, 2012 Report Share Posted December 11, 2012 Just thought I would update you on my friend who has cancer. Picture taken in about 1992---in our Wisconsin country home. For those who are new, this is a friend of 40+ years and the last of my life long friends.And a strong link to Bill. Cathy, her first (now deceased) husband and Bill and I were very close. It has always felt so good that she knew Bill so well and loved him. My other life longer friends are all with Bill....seems so strange. Cathy is my first "go to" person and I am hers and she is dealing now with cancer. The surgeon told her last week that this is a very aggressive form of cancer. On Friday she had her first chemo-6 hours. Loved the nurse and staff. It went well but then it went downhill over the weekend. We talk and/or email daily...she is having a rough time and the complications that we dealt with over Thanksgiving have reared their heads again along with her feeling as if she is under water and drugged. I wish I lived closer but do plan to get down there before the end of the month if weather allows. We got our first real snow here in Wisconsin yesterday. Heavy wet snow as I discovered when I shoveled. Though her spirits are generally good, today she cried with me on the phone and I cried with her as a result. It is difficult to have the miles between us at a time like this. I send little things like on line Jacquie Lawson's Advent Calendar which offers a little treat each day in December, books, notes, cards, cheer up stuff but it is not the same as just holding her while she cries and making her a cup of tea. Please keep her in your prayers. This is a long process with no guarantees. Peace Mary Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
