One of my beloved sisters has cancer. She received the diagnosis today. The cancer is in several places and a couple of her lymph nodes are swollen. The doctor believed the cancer had spread to them. There may also be cancer in her liver.
I felt like i knew what the diagnosis would be but still, finding out it is true leaves me feeling breathless. Off kilter.
How do you process this?
How can I help her?
She goes back to the doctor next week for more tests. If there is cancer in her liver, the doctor isn’t going to do surgery; he then plans to keep her comfortable for however long she has left.
I can’t believe I’m writing these words.
