Cancer

I got an email from a good friend today. She says: He had a malignant melanoma on his right arm removed a few weeks ago and is now having a second procedure--a wider excision--plus a lymph node biopsy by a specialist ... The doc says there is a 25-30% chance, based on the size of the melanoma, that it has spread into other systems."

I called and talked to her a while this afternoon. I can't tell you how angry this makes me again. I am tired of this cancer thing. I guess I am getting to the age where this is going to happen a lot and maybe even to me.

I also talked to my sister this evening. A good conversation where she talked about how she is feeling. I am glad that I could be there for her.
