There’s Something About Mary

7 May

Pardon my language


I have a sister. She’s 4 years older than me and lives ….maybe 1300 miles. I see her when I visit Texas – usually on her day off from work. So I don’t see her very much.

Last month she was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. A couple of weeks ago she had surgery. Tomorrow she starts chemotherapy.

As one can imagine, she’s kind of scared of the whole thing. Unfortunately, I have too many friends who have been through this (one is too many, in case you were trying to figure where to draw that line). Fortunately, I have friends who have been through this, so I’ve hopefully been able to pick up some helpful information to share with her.

I’m making plans to go down, the timing is tough…there will definitely be more than one trip. This isn’t something she and my dad need to go through on their own.

It’s hard to know what to say, what to talk about. It’s hard to know what NOT to say (in the best of times this is always a tightrope I walk!!)  So, I’ll play it by ear.

And pray. Praying helps.
