[cancer] More visits to the hospital

I’ve been back twice more to visit my friend who is ill with cancer. He’s dealing with distinct and separate complications from his tumors and from his chemo. Things are intersecting poorly, but he is on the mend.

With my scans coming up in three weeks, this holds a lot of resonances for me. I am very sorry to see him in distress. I am very glad to see him improving. At a gut level, I get this experience of his.

As I said before, this is my cancer path and my treatment course. This could be me.

It’s not, but it could be.

So much to think about.

    I don’t think it ever gets any easier. Nearly 7 years later I still find a simple Dr visit or mammogram to be highly stressful and upsetting. Stories about cancer patients make me cry. Sometimes just seeing a chemo-bald head will make me cry. As you said, I GET it.
