Marking Time

My sister starts chemotherapy tomorrow for advanced stomach cancer. My parents are there with her, I'm 6,000 miles away. We are all terrified.

I am living in limbo, waiting to hear more news. Hoping for good news after a month of bad to worse, hoping for an easy and effective course of chemo. Hoping for another year. Or five. Twenty would be even  nicer.

Oh Rosie, how awful. I'm SO sorry. I do hope that there's a good outcome, though no doubt the treatment will be horrible. Poor you, poor all of you. Such a sad time for you. You must wish you could be there. Hugs over the miles.
