It's Tom Robbins' birthday today, but I don't care anymore. I'm raging. How can so many terrible things happen to one person, all at once?
If anybody has a moment today, take a minute to visit Renee. She needs any words of support she can get. And if you need an update:
1. Renee has stage 4 inflammatory breast Cancer
She has spent the last week or so rushing back and forth to the hospital because:
2. Her mother has been hospitalized with a lung infection
3. Her sister has been taken to hospital, numb on one side and now about to have surgery for a recently discovered brain tumour that the doctors think may be Cancer.
4. Her nephew is in hospital receiving blood transfusions. The doctors say it is gastric lymphoma.
All at once, like someone out there is tossing a tragedy salad just for her.
I'm so angry. I just want this all to stop for her. How is she supposed to get better? I imagine Cancer cells enjoy stress for breakfast. One of the drawbacks of blogging: you start to feel connected to people who you feel helpless to assist when they are in turmoil.
