mY fRiEnD G.......

I have a friend "G" that i met through......well our husbands are friends. They are both hometown boys and we both are implants......so we married into the the hometown clicks that we were neither one to fond of..so we were kind of the outsiders so we had something in common so our friendship started there.(boy i sure used the word SO alot in that little bit of typing....weird).
This spring she found a few lumps on the side of her neck and after several tests she had to have surgery to remove them because they were cancer and had treatment after that.....i thought all was well......wrong she sent us an email not to long ago saying they found more lumps on the other side of her neck and was going to have more tests done!!!!! After the tests the doctors said she had to have surgery AGAIN!!!!! So on Monday of this week she went back in for surgery and they removed over 60 lymph nodes(that were tested and were cancerous) and alot of the soft tissue around those lymph nodes!!!!! The doctors are saying that the cancer was contained to the lymph nodes and has not spread!!!!!! I talked to her last nite and she still has some drainage tubes in but said she was feeling ok other than being sore. I just do not know what to say to her...she has 2 small children so i can not even imagine what had to be going on in her head!!!!! So please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers!!! Just makes us all realize how short life can be so lets enjoy each and every little thing we do.....you never know what tomorrow will bring!!!!!!
