Why is it just when things seem to be evening out, something else happens? We were talking to our good friends in Florida. Mike had had a successful procedure for his heart and he is doing very well. About five years ago, Rose was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent a double mastectomy and then endured round after round of unsuccessful reconstruction. Last night she told us that they had found more cancer and had to remove her left breast (implant and all) and the lymph nodes. they declared her cancer free, but she is going to have to go through chemo and then radiation. To me, that doesn't sound like cancer free. They both tend to keep health issues very close to their chest (no pun intended) and only tell us stuff after the fact. while I appreciate their decision, I feel like a bad friend for not being more supportive before knowing I need to be (does that make any sense at all).
Anyhow, it sort of put a damper on the weekend because it feels like there's so much more she isn't telling us. They did want to go ahead and start to make plans for visiting next summer and I'm starting to wonder if we need to do a short trip there for the holidays next year, just in case.
