i need a bright side
our next door neighbor was just diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. the prognosis is good.
a good friend and co-workers partner is in the hospital with congestive heart failure, and his prognosis is good as well.
another co-worker's daughter (in her late 20s) has been diagnosed with stage three melanoma in her lymph nodes. i don't think i need to tell you that her prognosis is not very good.
UPDATE: the daughter had surgery last week and actually the future looks bright! she had a clean CT scan, successful surgery and will need to do some chemo, but it's not nearly as bleak as we (the office) thought last week! huzzah!
i'm feeling so freaking buried by work and life and the holidays that i started crying a little bit when i was thinking about it while i was running the other day.
can i have a break please?
