Topic: Just found out that a friend has cancer
Dang.....just found out that a friend has terminal lung cancer....found when she fell and broke a rib....diagnosed from the chest xray. Tests have been run and she is now too weak for chemo...has been told she has 4 months to live. She's widowed and staying with her widowed best friend (friends since early adulthood) who is caring for her until she has to go to Hospice. Next week, she is going to fly to Colorado to visit one of her children and see a new great grandchild and then back here again. These ladies are part of a group I belong to....WWA...Women With Attitude. We use to all belong to a Business Womens' Association, but all eventually dropped out and decided that we still wanted to get together to see each other and catch up...so we have lunch monthly. Believe it or not, at 62, I'm the baby of the group. Ages go upward to 90. I'm not quite sure how to approach my friends...we don't usually see each other except for the lunches...more of a casual relationship. But, maybe on one of my "better" weeks, I can make some goodie for them.....or offer to pick them up for a more intimate lunch. I personally love flowers....but they seem sort of "im"personnal at this juncture. Any other suggestions.
