I found out today that a very dear friend has two tumors in her breast. She is scheduled for a mastectomy. The results of the tests that she has had so far, reveal that the cancer has NOT spread anywhere else. We so desperately hope that once the operation takes place, that this will indeed, be the case.
My friend is a tough cookie. When she broke the news to me she was her usual sarcastically funny self. I told her she didn't need to be with me.
Only then did she say, "I'm fucking scared, I really don't want to die."
God, I really don't want her to either.
