Sad news...

I just need to put this out...

Back in March my best friend's partner was diagnoised with lung cancer. On that very day, I quit smoking.

Tomorrow, she is going in for brain surgery. Last week they found a cancerous tumor on the right side of her brain about the size of a golf ball. This has already cause muscle damage on the left side of her arm/hand/shoulder/neck. Her brother is also dying of a brain tumor and may not make it through the week.

Thanks for listening. My friend is having a very hard time right now. She had to do all the paper work for the living will, Attorney In Fact, etc today (they are gay and have been together for over 40 yrs but this is the only legal way).

Please light a candle, pray, or do what ever it is you do tomorrow around 12:30 CT....her surgery should last 4-5 hours.

Oh Angie, I am so sorry. I am offering up a little prayer now and I will pray tomorrow for her (and you) at the specified time. A big hug to you.
