Cancer

Dale has breast cancer. I'm quite devestated by this news and have been upset about it even though I am trying not to be. She's been hanging out for 2 weeks waiting to hear the results and she was told this week. They are hopeful that they have caught it in time and that they will remove the lump in 4 weeks time. I really didn't think it would be cancer but when she told me tonight I had to ask again cause I wasn't sure I heard right. Then I just started crying. She says she is doing ok and feeling fine but she isn't sure how she will handle radiation. On the way home I tried not to think about it. But when I walked through the door, Hugh was up and I just let loose. I don't think I've ever had anyone this close to me heart-wise and friend-wise be diagnosed with cancer. So for now we are hanging out and I'm hoping I can take her mind off of things for at least the next 4 weeks.

OMG Christi, I can't believe this!! You should have phoned me! I really wanted to go to crop on Friday night too and I wish I had been there now. I'm in total shock right now, I feel so numb. Poor Dale.

Man I HATE cancer.
