Three days ago, Chris said she was going to her oncologist and hoping for good news. I expressed my acknowledgement of her fortitude and courage. I havenít heard from her. Yesterday my neighbor Seth told me the news that his wifeís four tumors have doubled in size. I am sad. I cried for the first time in months this week. I also thought nostalgically about my former husband. I hadnít let myself revisit the good times or his good qualities. It was a bittersweet remembrance. Sadness is part of life. Iím taking time now to feel.
